Garage Door Openers

Considering how often you use your garage door, do you know how it works? The door is attached to the opener by a curved arm, and the garage door trolly is also connected to this arm. It pulls and pushes this arm to open and close the door. The garage door motor directs the movement of the door when prompted to open. This is controlled by the spring system, which ensures that the weight is evenly balanced out and provides for safe and steady movement. An emergency release function is also included in case of any unforeseen circumstances.

At A-Team Garage Door Repair, we assure you that we have all of your garage door repair and installation needs covered.

• The Garage Door Opener is Not Closing Normally (Sensors)

If your garage door is not closing properly, the first thing to do is check the alignment and height of the sensors and the switch. It could require a simple adjustment to solve the problem. The sensors must be pointed directly at one another.
You need to ensure that there is nothing in the path of the door or that there is an obstruction. If there is, the sensors are not going to allow the door to close.
A more serious issue could be if there are wiring problems or faulty sensors that need to be replaced.

• Grinding Noises

Grinding noises often indicate issues with the gears. The gear is located inside the opener. We open the opener to ensure that everything is working properly and that there are no other faulty areas.
These noises can also result from loose rollers or hinges, poor lubrication, previous improper installation, or a stripped our opener gear or trolley. We can assist you with all of these issues. 

• The Remote Keypad or Control of the Garage Door Opener is Not Responding

Our technicians examine all the programming and functional properties of all remotes and keypads that open and close the garage door to ensure that you do not experience this problem.

• Opener Reversing Feature Doesn’t Work

If you are experiencing issues with your opener reversing feature, you need to call one of our professionals immediately, as this is a safety concern. We provide a garage door safety check to ensure that no one is at risk of injury.

• Emergency Release is Pulled Down

If you use the garage door emergency release, it is important to note that you are disengaging the opener. This means that the garage door won’t open. The emergency release is engaged by pulling the cord down and toward the door in the opposite direction of the motor.

Types of Garage Door Openers

BELT DRIVE GARAGE DOOR OPENERS

These openers work in a similar way to the chain-driven opener, but they make use of a belt instead of a chain. They are considered premium openers since they also include a battery backup. They are strong, durable and very quiet. Their downside is that they cost more than the chain drive equivalent.

CHAIN DRIVE GARAGE DOOR OPENERS

This type is very popular and these openers operate the movement of the garage door by running on a chain belt that is connected to the trolley of the motor, similar to a standard bicycle chain. Their main advantages are that they are strong, durable and reliable, and they are also the inexpensive option. Their downside is that they are rather loud and require maintenance to ensure that the chain doesn’t rust.

WALL MOUNT GARAGE DOOR OPENERS

This is also known as a jackshaft garage door opener. They are installed on one of the sides of the garage door. This motor drives pulleys and cables that rotate the torsion bar, which, in turn, raises the door. These openers are usually installed in high-ceiling garages or commercial garages, and they may sometimes be installed in fairly low ceiling garages where a traditional opener will not fit.
