Our Garage Door Opener Repair Best Practices

At King Garage Door Repair, we follow all the industry best practices for garage door repairs and maintenance. We handle all garage doors and openers according to the manufacturers’ specifications. We also make sure that we look out for your family’s safety and your property when we conduct all repair, maintenance, and installation work.

We encounter several common garage door opener problems as we are servicing homes in the Schaumburg area. Each one requires a different solution, and our garage door technicians have experience with them all. Here are some of the main ones.

Grinding Noises

Another common garage door problem is when you start to hear unusual grinding noises. The gears typically cause this, so that is the first thing we check to see if it is working properly. The gears are located inside the opener.

The Garage Door Opener is Not Closing Normally

If you notice that your garage door opener does not allow you to close your garage door normally, something is amiss. When you reach out to us, we can schedule a visit to check the sensors' alignment and height, and the switch. The close limit may need to be adjusted.

Remote or Keypad aren't responding

Should you experience any trouble with your remote keypad and control, this can affect when and if you can open and close your garage door. For this, we check the programming and functionalities of every garage door remote and garage door keypad that open and close the garage door. If you have a wall-mount garage door opener or a universal garage door opener, these also need to be checked.

Opener Reversing Feature Doesn’t Work

The garage door has a reverse sensor as part of the in-built garage door safety check. Should the garage door run into any resistance as it is opening or closing, the sensor triggers automatic reversing. The opener's reverse feature allows the homeowner to select this option on the remote when needed. If the opener's reversing function is not working, it can be a safety concern.

Emergency Release is Pulled Down

The garage door emergency release is a feature that allows the garage door to be manually operated. This can come in handy when there is a power outage, for example. When the garage door emergency release is pulled down, this causes the opener to be disengaged. This means that the garage door won't open using the garage door opener.

Types of Garage Door Openers

There are different types of garage door openers, mainly a chain or a belt-driven one. Each of these has its advantages and disadvantages.

Chain-Driven Garage Door Opener

As the name suggests, this garage door opener uses a metal chain to open the garage door. The operation is by moving gears and metal plates.

Advantages of a Chain-Driven Garage Door Opener

The chain-driven opener is very popular for two main reasons:

  • It is easily available and also quite affordable.
  • Chain-driven openers are also stronger than the alternative and can carry more weight.
Disadvantages of a Chain-Driven Garage Door Opener
  • The chain-driven option is noisier and requires maintenance work more often than the belt-driven option.
  • It also operates slower.

Belt-Driven Garage Door Opener

The belt-driven garage door opener uses a rubber belt to open and close the garage door. When the door is triggered, the rubber belt slides the trolley.

Advantages of a Belt-Driven Garage Door Opener
  • The belt-driven option is more expensive than its counterpart.
  • It is also not as strong, so it should not be used in heavy doors such as those made from wood or those that are for larger multi-car garages.
Disadvantages of a Belt-Driven Garage Door Opener
  • These openers can’t lift as much as chain-driven motors.
  • These openers cost more than a lot of other models.
  • Belt-driven garage door openers have a shorted lifespan than chain-driven openers.

Wall Mount Garage Door Opener

Wall Mount Garage Door Opener

A wall-mount garage door opener, also known as a Jackshaft garage door opener, is connected to the door’s torsion bar instead of the rail track to operate the door. This type of opener is mainly installed in commercial garage doors and residential high lift garage doors.
