What to do if your garage door opener stops working

Submitted by Action Door

Are you having trouble with your garage door opener? Does the door go up but not go down? Do you have to hold the wall button down to get the door to close? If you’ve answered “yes” to any of these questions, there may be an internal issue with your garage door opener.

Most likely your safety sensors are out of alignment. Safety sensors must be aligned and working to reverse the door automatically. These sensors help protect pets, people or objects to reverse the door before contact is made. Sensing technology stops the door from closing to ensure your safety.

There are many things that could cause your door to malfunction. For your safety and security, call upon the services of a trained professional.
