We would like to share maintenance ideas for you in the meantime.

What to do if your garage door opener won’t close

All garage door openers manufactured after 1993 meet UL325 which requires photo cell secondary safety devices. If your opener won’t close and just moves a few inches then reverses and the light(s) blink try holding constant pressure on the close button on the wall control. If the door closes, you have a problem with the photo cell sensors. It may be as simple as aligning them so they are looking at each other or reconnecting a loose wire.

If your door doesn’t move at all after contact with the close button, make sure you have power to the electric operator. This could be a popped circuit breaker or GFI on an outlet in the garage.

Testing and maintaining the Garage Door Opener

There are routine safety and maintenance steps that you should follow once a month. Review your owner's manual for the door opener. If you do not have an owners manual, look for the opener model number on the back of the power unit and request a manual from the manufacturer.

Routine Maintenance Can Prevent Tragedies

Take a few minutes to inspect and test your complete garage door system. Make monthly inspection and testing a part of your regular routine. Safety is everyone's business. Make garage door and garage door opener safety automatic in your home.
