How can I Open My Garage Door If There is a Power Outage?

Most garage door owners are unaware of what to do to open their doors when there is a power outage. An electrical door opener will not work when there is a power outage but there are some quick means to open your garage door when this problem occurs. You may want to contact us at Bob's Advance Garage Doors if there is an issue with your door opener or any other component of your garage door to schedule professional garage door repair services.

How to Open Your Garage Door When There is Power Outage

Perhaps the first step is to get a flashlight and get to the garage door. Simply pull on the red-color red opener emergency cord, this will help you disable the trolley operator that pulls the door, then slide it back an inch. The next step is to locate the lifting handle to open and lift the door without applying much pressure. The lifting handle is located in the bottom panel, and you should have no problem lifting the door if it is well-balanced with the springs. If the springs are weak, you will need to apply some force and please contact us at Bob's Advance Garage Doors to get your springs replaced.

What Happens After Closing the Garage Door?

Once you have successfully removed your car from the garage door, you need to close the door and reconnect the trolley. To ensure that this was done properly, you should pay attention to a “click sound” as it signifies that the door is engaged with the trolley properly. If the door does not reconnect with the trolley, it means there is a problem, please contact our garage door technician at Bob's Advance Garage Doors for this.

In case you have a Side-lock on your door, you can simply use the lock to lock the door instead of re-engaging the door with a trolley. You will need to disable the side lock when the power comes back before reconnecting the door opener trolley. When power is restored, and the door opener trolley is re-engaged, you need to test that everything is working normally by testing with the remote control.
