Garage Door Opener Repair, FAQ

It all depends on how technically savvy and skilled you are with your hands. The problem is that, often, the issue isn't with the opener itself but with the door, the cables, or the springs. Additionally, the opener could be off its track- making it seem like the opener is to blame. Therefore, it's always best to have an experienced repair person take a look and diagnose the issue.

There are several reasons why the garage door opener is making a loud noise: 1. Your garage door opener is out of alignment, causing it not to close or open properly. 2. Your garage door opener needs lubrication. If too much friction between the trolley wheels and the tracks, you will have a noise problem. Look at the bottom of the garage door opener and see two wheels. These wheels will have a sprocket on them. The sprocket needs to be cleaned and lubricated. Once you lubricate the sprocket using a spray lubricant or lithium grease, you should notice the noise decrease, but if it doesn't, you will need to lubricate the sprocket pivot points. 3. Your garage door cable may be broken. This can be a severe problem because if the cable snaps, then the garage door may fall. Check the garage door cable for fraying, kinks or wear and replace it if it is frayed or worn.

Yearly maintenance on your garage door opener is essential to keeping it running smoothly and efficiently. Having a professional technician inspect your garage door opener, clean and lubricate all moving parts, and make necessary repairs or replacements will extend the lifespan of your garage door opener.

Because of the state's frequent power outages, a battery backup in a garage door opener is necessary for California. The battery backup ensures that the opener continues functioning even during a power failure, allowing you to open and close your garage door without interruption. This provides convenience and increases your home's safety by allowing you to secure your garage door during power outages. With a battery backup, you can rest assured that your garage door will continue functioning even in unexpected circumstances.
