Garage doors can sometimes malfunction due to minor issues that you can resolve on your own. If you are considering doing garage door repair work on your own, the following are some of the issues that you will be able to resolve.
The door is raising and lowering on its own. While this may be odd, the reason is very simple: another person in your group may use a similar access or security code to yours. This could cause interference with your radio receiver. Radios in police cars and planes may have a similar impact. The best solution is to update the code. Visit us on Alamo Door & Gates.
The procedure for changing access or security codes is now different for each door opener. In most situations, you simply place the transmitter near the opener’s box and press the button for around thirty seconds; the time can be found in the manufacturer’s manual. The majority of new openers are built with a rolling code that changes on auto-pilot if the transmitter is used.
The next issue may be that the door moves halfway down and back up as you try to lock it. In this case, you may have a garage door with a safety sensing device that detects an obstruction and sends a signal to pull the door upwards. This obstacle may be a broom or a bucket, but once the items are removed, the door should work properly.
The issue may also arise if the lenses in the sensor system are dusty or dirty, or if condensation forms inside. It is best to clean the lenses of this type of device on a regular basis.
