One of the most frustrating situations to be in is when you are in a hurry, trying to leave your house, you finally wrestled all of the kids into the car, locked the house doors, remembered to grab your wallet or purse and the shopping list after a hectic morning … you open the garage, back out slowly and push the button on your garage remote when nothing happens. Your garage door will not close and now you must close it manually, which means you must now take all of the kids out of the car, back through the garage so you can close it and everyone must exit through the front door. Not only is this annoying to leave the house, but now when you get home to unload your groceries you cannot conveniently back into your open garage, but you must do the same routine, only backwards this time. Garage doors can be extremely frustrating to deal with when they are not working properly. When they do work properly we probably do not give them the attention they need to continue to do so.
What is Causing Your Garage Door to Malfunction?
A garage door that fails to either open or close can have a several number of issues going on. One of the first places you should inspect is the opener remote itself. Batteries can go for quite some time without being changed, but if you cannot remember the last time that you swapped out the old double as from your remote control, you may want to insert a fresh pair in and push the button again to see if your garage door will open up. If it does, count yourself lucky and do a little dance, because that is the easiest garage door fix possible. If the problem is not the batteries, check your garage door sensors. Many times there is an object that is preventing the sensors to signal to one another that it is safe to open or close the garage door. In most cases this object is usually a child’s scooter, bike or skateboard. Sometimes a tool may have fallen off of a shelf and right in front of the sensor. Make sure your sensors are not blocked.
An Uneven Garage Door Can Be Embarrassing & Make your House look Broken
