Stripped Gear and Sprocket Assembly in Minneapolis, MN

Stripped Gear On LiftMaster Opener

Have you ever gone to open your Garage Door and when you push the wall button nothing happens but you can still hear the motor running inside the Garage Door Opener? Usually this means you have a Stripped Gear and Sprocket Assembly and it needs to be repaired or have a new Opener installed. One of our customers over in Minneapolis, MN was having this issue with his opener and we identified that the gear had stripped out inside the Opener so it was just spinning and not matching up with the other gears. We were able to provide options between repair or replacement and the customer opted to go with a full replacement.

Causes for a Gear and Sprocket Problem

This is a very common issue with Garage Door Openers that can be caused by a few different things that may be happening with your Garage Door. Your opener has a sprocket on top of the opener that is spun by a gear down inside the opener which is then also matched up with another gear from the motor. When there is a lot of stress from your Garage Door it can strip the gear inside or break the sprocket head off up top. Here are some common causes of this issue:

  • Running your Garage Door with a Broken Spring
  • Springs are not balanced properly
  • Running your Garage Door with a Broken Cable
  • The Chain on your Opener was too tight
  • Running the Door with binding sections

Solutions for a Gear and Sprocket Problem

Whatever the problem is that caused your Gear and Sprocket Assembly to break down we can offer many different solutions between repairing and replacing the issue. We can repair just the Gear and Sprocket Assembly or offer a completely new Opener with all new components that you won’t have to worry about for years to come. This is a common problem so it is important to be aware of all your options, we also have multiple replacement options that could even upgrade your features with things like a wireless gateway built in. Whatever repair or replacement option you choose Garage Door Repair Company will make sure it is installed properly and backed by a minimum 5 year warranty.

In New Hope, MN we had a customer contact us about their Commercial Garage Door that they use for ventilation in their work shop area; someone had run in to the door and all the sections had fallen out of the tracks completely.
