Common Garage Door Opener Repair needs we find in the area:

Misaligned or Broken Safety Photo Eyes

The “eyes” are located 6” from the floor on the track or just outside the track of your garage door. They shine an infrared beam across the garage opening. When that beam is broken, the garage door opener installation will not close with your transmitters. You’ll need to hold the wall button depressed to get the opener to run.

95% of the time, this happens because the safety photo eyes have become misaligned and no longer “see” each other. This may be a result of being bumped or from vibration. Simply reposition them, and the garage door opener will resume working.

However, 5% of the time, the eyes or eye wires may be broken and you’ll need to call a professional like Garage Door Technicians of Naperville and Aurora. If you’ve tried to re-position the eyes and your opener is still not working, give us a call. The eyes are a significant part of the safety system of your garage door opener, and their proper function is essential to keeping your system safe.

Worn Out Gear Assemblies

Most openers have gear assemblies that connect the chain (or belt) you see above you to the electric motor inside the garage door opener head. Over time the gears in these assemblies will wear out and need to be replaced.

If you can hear the opener running but the door is not moving, a worn out gear assembly is likely the culprit. The gear assembly is repairable, but most of the opener needs to be disassembled, so you’ll usually want to call us.

Broken Opener Electronics and Controls

Transmitters, keypads, circuit boards, wall buttons, rpm sensors, and photo eyes are some of the electronic components that make up your garage door opener installation. All parts are brand specific, which mean that they won’t work with other brands. Many are also model specific.

It’s important to mention that our highly skilled technicians fix all makes and models of broken garage door opener brands, including Overhead Doors, Wayne Dalton, Lift Master, Chamberlain, and many more.

A- Choosing the right garage door opener depends on the size and weight of the opening, as well as the lifetime you require. Motors capable of lifting the door repeatedly for long periods of time with little or no wear and tear are ideal.
A- Every time you use the remote control, the rolling-code system picks a fresh, non-repeating access code from each of the billions of possibilities. A programmed code may be entered into a keypad or touchscreen located outside the garage.
A- Each has its own benefits: Chain drive: The earliest form, chain-drive openers, are still popular and economical. If the garage is under a bedroom or near to a peaceful space, they may not be the best solution. But they are good according to the alarming purpose. Screw drive: Stainless steel direct drive screws provide further robustness. Direct drives are also quite reliable. They have no worn-out belts, chains, or gears. Belt drive opener: Like chain-drive openers, but with a rubber belt instead of chain. As they really don’t have chains so they are not noisy.
A- This depends on the model and use. Some openers can last up to 25 years if properly maintained. To estimate the value of repairing an existing operator vs replacing it, the repair cost and age must be considered
A- A blockage in the door's route is likely the blame. Clear any obstacles in the door's route. If the issue persists, check the safety beam LED indication. If so, make sure the lenses are 6′′ from the ground on either edge of the garage doorway. Other reasons and remedies can be found in the owner's manual's troubleshooting section.
A- It's possible that the door has been unlocked. Check to make sure that the red flapper valve rope hasn't been pulled. If this is the cause of the problem, the carriage should be re-engaged. The model dictates how to re-engage the carriage. For further information, consult your owner's handbook.
A- Is the opener electric? Plug a bulb into the same outlet as the opener. If the button doesn't function, you really need to check the fuse box. Some outlets may require a wall switch. If the operator has power, there is a mechanical or electrical issue that has to be addressed by a certified service expert.
A- The photo-cell safety beams may be obstructed, misaligned, or broken. Move any things that may be blocking the signal and make sure the photo-cell Light bulbs are lit as directed. If the infrared beams are not obstructed and the photo-cells seem to be aligned, you should have a qualified technician inspect and rectify the issue. You can't close the door with the controller till the photocells are operating properly.
