In order for us to make a recommendation regarding your current garage door opener, we have several checks we go through. Here are the overall highlights of our inspection process.
Power Supply: We check to ensure that the garage door opener is receiving power and that all electrical connections are in working order.
Remote Control: We test all remote controls and keypad functionality. We’re making sure the problem isn’t a dead battery or a malfunctioning remote.
Sensors: We check the condition of all safety sensors as well as the alignment of the sensors. We’re inspecting wear and tear and also ensuring that there aren’t any obstructions that would cause a disruption in ordinary operation.
Operation: We test the manual operation of the garage door opener while inspecting functionality. Sometimes testing results in pinpointing the root cause of the problem.
Motor: During testing, we also inspect the motor of the opener. Unusual sounds, strain during operation, and other mechanical issues are observed with any issues found noted.
Drive System: This involves inspecting the belt, chain, and other parts of the opener for wear and tear, damage, or excessive slack. If we repair the opener, we will correct any of the issues we find.
Limit Switch: We check the switches that control the open and close functionality of the opener.
Gears & Sprockets: These items are inspected inside the garage door opener. We’re looking for damage and wear and tear of these items.
Noise & Vibration: Lots of our calls about openers involve loud and unusual noise and vibration. We take this into account in our final recommendation.
Age & Cost of Repair: These are the most important factors when considering repairing a garage door opener versus replacing one. If the opener is significantly outdated or the repair cost is close to the price of a new opener, replacement may be a more cost-effective option.
