Reasons Why Garage Doors Won't Open or Close

Your garage is the most frequently used entrance and exit point in your home, this is the reason why you should pay close attention to your garage door. If you notice that the garage door doesn’t close and open easily like before, please contact us at Bob's Advance Garage Doors.

Garage doors will eventually develop certain functional problems especially when they are not properly serviced. These problems mostly occur when there are power outages or during the winter season. When your garage door won't open or close, the problem could arise from a number of ways, but it is important to contact a technician to fix the issue before it becomes more complicated. 

The Main Reasons Why Your Garage Door Wouldn’t Open or Close

If the photo-eye of your garage door is blocked, dirty or misaligned, the door may not open, but in most cases, the garage door technician can solve the problem by removing the obstruction. If your garage door operator is receiving no power, the plug cord or fuses might have developed problems causing the door not to open. In this case, resetting the fuses or changing the plug cord may resolve the problem. Issues such as expired transmitter batteries can also cause the garage door not to open or close.

When the extension spring or garage door torsion is broken, your door may not open but a spring replacement will solve the problem. Similarly, snapped cables, and blocked remote signal can also cause the garage door to stop working. Replacing damaged cables with stronger and more durable ones, and re-adjusting the settings of the door will resolve these issues. 

When the door track has become misaligned, your garage door wouldn’t open or close. You can contact Bob's Advance Garage Doors to replace the damaged tracks.
