We’re experts in garage motor replacement, serving all makes and models.
If you’re like most people, you probably open and close your garage door at least a few times per day. For example, when you leave for work or to take the kids to school, you open it to get your car out and close it as you leave your property, and you likely follow a similar process when you return. Depending on what your day looks like, you may come in and out of the space multiple times. Every time you engage the button on the opener, you expect the door to go up and down without incident. But if that doesn’t happen, the motor could be to blame.
Nearly every garage door relies on a motor to allow it to open and close. Often mounted on the ceiling of the space, the motor is connected to the pulley system that lifts and lowers the heavy door. But while this component is quite reliable, it won’t last forever. Some manufacturers estimate that their motors will last for 10-15 years with regular maintenance, but the expected lifespan of your motor depends on its type and the door it’s connected to, as well as how much you use it. The rough estimate for most systems is approximately 10,000 times opening and closing before needing garage motor replacement.
Some of the signs that your system may be due for garage motor replacement include slow response, a door that gets stuck often, or strange sounds during operation. You may also notice that the door is going up or down on its own or works here and there, but not consistently.
