Why a Garage Door Won’t Open
There is nothing more frustrating than getting in your vehicle, ready to head off to work in the morning, only to find that your garage door doesn’t open when you press the button. Depending on what it is that is preventing your garage door from opening, it may be a quick fix or an expensive repair. Knowing what the problem is with your garage door system is important, which is why we have provided this list of the most common reasons why a garage door won’t open.
The Opener Has No Power Source
Although it might seem obvious, one of the common reasons why a garage door isn’t opening has to do with the fact that the garage door opener is no longer receiving power. This might be a result of the opener becoming unplugged or the fact that your entire garage’s electrical system is no longer receiving energy due to a tripped breaker. That’s why you need to double-check that the garage door opener is plugged in and still has power flowing to it.
Broken Torsion Springs
The garage door torsion springs are an essential component that is needed in order to safely open and close a garage door. Unfortunately, they tend to be one of the first major pieces that will become broken and require garage door service. And when they do inevitably break, they will be very loud. It is also important that drivers never attempt to continue using the door and instead call for some professional garage door service right away.
Remote Is Malfunctioning
The problem might be your garage door remote, which could be a result of you being out of range, having a dead battery, bad remote or a problem with another part in the opener. So you’ll want to check out all of these aspects to see if any of them seem to be the issue.
