Garage Door Opener Installation Elkhorn

Project Description

Titan Garage Doors Omaha NE had a garage door opener installation project in Elkhorn, NE.  The homeowner called for a garage door opener replacement service since their garage door opener broke and they needed to replace it. We responded quickly to their request for a new garage door opener Elkhorn as the homeowner was looking for a residential garage door repair company.  We were able to replace the garage door opener quickly so that the homeowner could use their garage again.

Two Signs That Will Indicate A Broken Garage Door Opener

  • The garage door does not open during the winter months.

Cold weather can cause garage doors to fail to open, even if they're otherwise totally functional. If this is the case, look for a screw on the motor unit to change the sensitivity of the garage door opener (this is the nut on the screw that sticks out from the back of the garage door opener).

In the winter, the rollers of a garage door opener may become stuck, preventing it from opening. Additionally, lubricating the rollers may be the solution. Check the owner's manual for specifics on how to modify the sensitivity of your garage door opener.

2. Inability to Close Garage Door Fully

It's not uncommon for a garage door that opens properly but does not close fully because of the following reasons:

  • The close-limit switch is a critical component of all garage door openers. It keeps people from being hit and has the door close on them. The limit switch on your garage door can be adjusted. It's possible that the close-limit switch needs to be tweaked. Your garage door's set-limit switches tell the motor when to stop working, both when it opens and when it closes.
  • If the close-limit switch is set incorrectly, the door may not close. When you try to close the opener, it may also reverse or pull back up. The set-limit switches on garage doors can be changed in a variety of ways, but the most common is to adjust a screw on the motor unit to control how far the door falls.
  • It is possible that the safety sensors will need to be realigned or adjusted. Both sides' electronic eyes are located near the bottom of the door track and require a clear line of sight between them. If the sightlines between the eyes are clear, the door will close smoothly all the way to the floor.
  • If something is blocking the sightline or if the brackets holding the electronic eyes are out of alignment, the door will not descend all the way. To alert you to a problem, the door will usually stop or reverse, and lights will flash. Check that nothing is in the way of the electronic sensors' vision. Leaves or debris can occasionally obstruct the sensors; if this occurs frequently, it may become a problem.
  • Rollers that are rusted or damaged can cause the door to bind in the tracks. Replace damaged rollers or lubricate them with silicone lubricant to resolve this issue. It's possible that the tracks will shift or bend, causing the problem.
