Most Common Problem with Garage Doors

Many people will believe that the garage door itself constitute the biggest problem of the garage system, but this is not true because the automatic reverse system seems to be the biggest garage door problem today. Fortunately, Bob's Garage Doors offer solutions to all kinds of garage door issues. Give us a call anytime to schedule garage door repair, replacement or installation services in your area.

Sometimes, you may be able to remotely open your garage door but the door will go down to a certain level and then reverses to open again. This problem could occur as a result of the Photo Eyes issue and you can take some step towards resolving this. 

The Problem with The Photo Eye

Safety of heavy garage doors have become a source of concern, and when garage door safety protocols are missing, the door openers may not function efficiently. Most of the garage door openers sold today will require an automatic reverse system. The reverse system was implemented as a result of widespread injuries sustained by people when garage doors are lowered. 

The Photo Eye system is a security measure situated along the tracks and connected to the motor of the opener. It works with an invisible beam that passes through the devices and between the garage door opening. If there is an interruption or breaking to the beam, then the garage door will try to close automatically which means the door will reverse and go back up. 

There is a second system for automatic reversal of the garage door but it is a simple mechanical system. If there is a pet or object at the bottom of a descending garage door, the door will simply reverse direction on hitting the object and move back up. You may want to contact us at Bob's Advance Garage Doors to learn more about how a garage door works. 

Why the Photo Eyes May Not Work Properly

If you are wondering why the Photo eyes suddenly stop working, you may be surprised that the answer is very simple. Misalignment is the primary reason the Photo Eyes may not work properly. For instance, you might have bumped the door by mistake, or your pet might have hit the eye sometimes and that has caused the photo eyes to become misaligned. 

When the garage door is not closing properly, please check for signs of misalignment of the photo eyes. Some Clicking sounds may be signs that the photo eyes have become misaligned. In some cases, you may see a blinking light on the opener of the door. If the garage door has a wall control panel, you may notice a blinking LED light.

Fixing the Phot Eyes

It can be difficult to fix the problems associated with Photo Eyes, but you can rest assured that Bob's Advance Garage Doors will do its best to provide a lasting solution. The most important step in fixing this problem is to ensure that the Photo Eyes are re-aligned and the beam is returned to its correct position. 

Make sure the photo eyes are correctly attached to the wall on their metal brackets. Please contact us at Bob's  Advance Garage Doors to help ensure that your Photo Eyes security features are working efficiently as they should
