You come home, press the button, and nothing happens. The garage door doesn’t respond. Or you just come into the garage and press the button so you can go mow your lawn, and the door doesn’t move.

What Would Cause A Garage Door Opener Issues
While a garage door opener is a relatively simple machine, there are a variety of things that could happen that would cause your garage door opener to need repairs. One simple aspect that makes a garage door opener fail to work is having the security eye that shoots a beam across the opening not be positioned correctly. Without both pieces positioned correctly, the opener will not function. These can easily be knocked out of position or broken but can be replaced.
Another way a garage door opener would need repair is if the belt or chain were to break. The belt or chain is what drives the door up or down, and when this breaks you have no working opener. A related problem is if the sprocket that drives the chain or belt breaks, that renders your garage door opener inoperable and requires repair.
There are many garage door opener issues that can mean repairs are needed. When you experience issues with your garage door opener, call Tri-County Overhead Door Service, Inc. for garage door opener repair.
Don’t Forget About The Garage Door
While the garage door opener can have issues itself that require repairs, sometimes there are issues that are related to the garage door that impact the opener as well. Without periodic maintenance to the garage door, it can lead to problems, some of which can impact the garage door opener. For example, checking the rollers on the garage door and lubricating them periodically will ensure that the garage door itself can freely move up and down. This will put less stress on the garage door opener and help the garage door opener from becoming damaged.
