COMMON REASONS A GARAGE DOOR OPENER BREAKS

Because a garage door opener upgrades the convenience of your garage door, a broken garage door opener can be a major headache. But how do you know if you have a broken garage door opener? Below are the most common reasons we see garage door openers break:

  1. You have dead batteries in your remote or wireless keypad that need to be replaced.
  2. Your garage door safety eye sensors are out of alignment and dirty.
  3. Your garage door opener has a worn-out gear and sprocket assembly that needs replacement or maintenance.
  4. Your garage door opener is reaching the end of its 15-20 year lifespan. 

Depending on the particular reason you need garage door opener repair services, we can offer you suggestions for garage door opener repair or garage door opener replacement

HOW LONG DOES A GARAGE DOOR OPENER LAST?

With the best conditions, garage door openers, especially from reputable brands like LiftMaster Garage Door Openers, can last 15-20 years. If you incorporate a regular garage door maintenance routine, you can even see up to two decades or more of use from your garage door opener. However, without regular maintenance and a quality garage door opener, you may only get 8-12 years of use. That is why we always recommend choosing the best quality garage door opener to get the longest lifespan from your entire garage door system. This delays your need for garage door opener repair, saving you money down the road. Contact Grease Monkey Garage Door for garage door opener repair services in Gilbert, Chandler, Scottsdale, and the surrounding areas.

WHY DOES MY GARAGE DOOR START TO CLOSE AND THEN REVERSE?

With a problem like your garage door starting to close and then immediately reversing, the issue is most likely with your garage door opener safety sensors. Installed on the sides of your garage opening, safety sensors are important to prevent any accidents with your children or pets running under the garage door. But when they come out of alignment or get dirty, they’ll make your garage door start to close and then reverse. Fixing this issue is usually as simple as cleaning and realigning your garage door safety sensors. If not, schedule garage door opener repair with Grease Monkey Garage Door to get your problem solved quickly!

HOW TO MANUALLY OPEN YOUR GARAGE DOOR

If your garage door spring is intact and the problem is with your garage door opener, you should be able to manually open your garage door. In a few easy steps, you’ll be able to get your car out of the garage door and secure the garage door before a garage door repair company can reach your home. 

  1. Ensure your garage door is completely closed, not hanging off the ground or at an angle. This is important because you don’t want the garage door to slam down or get damaged when you disengage the garage door opener. 
  2. Locate the emergency release cord hanging from your garage door opener (usually red or orange). Follow the instructions listed on your garage door opener to disengage the release cord. This entails pulling the cord straight down or pulling it down and back, disengaging the garage door from the garage door opener. 
  3. Carefully open your garage door using the handles on the center or sides of the garage door. Make sure to keep your hands on the handles so they don’t get caught in the garage door sections as it goes up. 
  4. Make sure your garage door is fully upright before pulling your car out of the garage. Then pull the garage door back into the down position, locking it from the inside to ensure no one can enter your garage while you’re gone.
