Is there something wrong with your garage door? There are a few things you can do to figure out what the issue should be. The following garage door troubleshooting Van Nuys guide should help you.
If your door is not opening or closing properly when you use your transmitter, you should try opening and closing it manually. You need to disconnect the carriage to be able to do this. Look for the carriage and pull on the red cord to disconnect it. You can then open and close the door manually and the carriage will automatically go back in its place once you have closed the door.
Sensors are another common issue. If your garage door is not opening or closing with your transmitter and if using the wall button only causes the door to close, you need to check all the sensors and make sure there are no objects that could be blocking the sensors. The next step is to carefully clean the sensors eyes. Sensors might have to be replaced if this still doesn’t work.
You might have to change the limits on your garage door if your door does not stay closed. You should be able to adjust the limits by using a screw driver if your door has a chain drive with driven limits. If you have a door with a chain drive and some lug limits, you will have to test different opening and closing limits until you find one that works.
If this garage door troubleshooting Van Nuys guide didn’t help, your best option is to call a professional. Look for someone who is licensed, insured and who has plenty of experience when it comes to troubleshooting technical problems and fixing garage doors. This is often quicker and cheaper than attempting to fix your door yourself.
