Electric garage doors are very useful for homeowners so that they don't have to get out of their cars when they arrive home, especially in bad weather and can lift up the garage door easily and drive into the garage. Once the garage doors don't work properly then it's time to troubleshoot different methods to see if you can discover the reason for the problem and start thinking of solutions. First of all you should check out the vertical path of the doors to make sure that nothing is blocking the path of the door. Make sure that nothing has rolled under or gotten in the way of the garage door up and down path. Keep in mind that if an object breaks the sensor's path across the bottom then the automatic overhead door won't operate.

Try to adjust the infrared sensors near the garage door if you see that the garage door won't close. It's important to that the sensor on the left side matches up with the sensor on the right side of the garage door evenly. Take a small item and put it on the top of the lower part of the casing which holds each sensor. Then press down on the sensor as it is able to move up and down freely until it rests on the item. This is done t so that both sides are at an even level. If the garage door won't close unless you hold the button down until the garage door goes down all the way then clean the eyes on the sensors. A good deal of the time dust or dirt can adhere to the eyes of the sensor and can cause the infrared connection to get partially blocked or reflected or even retracted. Sometimes cobwebs can build up around sensors so take a rag to dust them off.

If you find that the garage door closes part way and then reverses direction until it goes back up all the way try to adjust the open and close limits on the opener. Many garage door openers have settings on the casing outside the motor which let users set the open and close limits. Make sure to measure the distance from the top of the garage ceiling to the garage floor with a tape measure. Then reset the open and close limits by turning the dial to the appropriate distances on the motor. Then take and lubricate the parts in order to minimize the sounds that makes. Even if it seems to be off track it might just be that the coils which open and close the door need to be lubricated.

These are ways in which you can make sure that continuous to function well and you'll avoid the expense of having to buy a new one. However if there are any doubts don't hesitate to contact a Rancho Cucamonga Garage Door Repair specialist.
