Troubleshooting Guide for Garage Door Openers

Home / Blog / Troubleshooting Guide for Garage Door Openers

Garage door openers are essential for businesses and homeowners alike, but just like any other mechanical system, they can break down or malfunction over time. If you’re having trouble with your garage door openers, you can call upon our skilled technicians here at On Track Garage Doors for the prompt and effective service you need.

Troubleshooting Guide for Garage Door Openers

Our team has been working with garage doors for decades, and in that time, we’ve realized that there are some quick fixes to many issues with garage door openers. In this guide, we’ll share a few troubleshooting tips to remedy some common problems with garage door openers.

  • Replace the remote control batteries. If your garage door opener isn’t responding to signals from the remote control, start by replacing the batteries and trying again. Make sure that you’re within range of the garage door and that there aren’t any obstructions between you and the door.
  • Check the wiring near the wall switch. If your wall switch doesn’t seem to be working, carefully inspect the wiring connections around the switch and the opener unit. If you notice loose or damaged wires, contact an electrician for further assistance. If everything looks fine, try replacing the wall switch to see if it’ll resolve the problem.
  • Lubricate any moving parts. If your garage door suddenly makes loud, unusual noises, it may be due to worn-out gears or insufficient lubrication. You can lubricate the parts inside the opener unit to see if that reduces the sounds. If not, contact a professional who can take a closer look and determine what the main issue is.
