Common Garage Door Problems

The following is a list of common garage door problems with the most common repair solutions. The garage door repair contractors can resolve all of these issues, even if the source of the problem is rare:

  • Garage door will not close completely
    There may be a problem that has persisted since installation. Test to see if this is the case by manually lowering the garage door. If it does not close all the way, call a garage door repair contractor. There may also be a problem with your close limit switch.
  • Garage door opens immediately after closing completely
    This is also likely a problem with the close limit switch. A garage repair contractor can easily resolve this issue.
  • Garage door does not open remotely or by wall switch
    Because it is unlikely that both the remote and wall switch have failed, it is most likely a problem with the garage door opener. This could be a power issue or a motor issue. Trained repair contractors can diagnose either problem quickly.
  • Remote control does not open garage door
    The four most common causes for this problem include the remote being out of range, the antenna on the garage door opener has malfunctioned, the batteries in the remote have expired, or the remote needs reprogramming.
