Garage Door Openers are something that are often taken for granted these days, we have become so accustomed to automated doors that we never really think about them until they break. Especially living in Maplewood, MN the cold temperatures can create havoc on our automated openers. One of our customers in this area had suffered a Broken Spring on their Garage Door and because of the cold weather their opener went down at the same time.

Garage Door Wont Close Andover, MN
- Monday, 04 January 2016 13:57
Imagine getting ready to leave for work, pulling out of your driveway and going to close the garage door but it won’t shut. This was the case for one of our Andover customers. There are many garage door issues that can cause the door to not close, the most common being misaligned safety sensors. This particular customer had a safety sensor issue but it turned out to be a short in the wiring. We ended up replacing the safety sensors all the way back to the opener with brand new wiring. This immediately resolved our customers issue and will ensure safe operating for years to come.
Reasons for a Garage Door not closing
As stated previously, the most common reason for a garage door not wanting to close is misaligned safety sensors. The easiest way to determine this is by checking the safety sensors to ensure both lights are on and solid. If you try to operate the garage door and the opener flashes or clicks 10 times, the opener is telling you there is something wrong with the safety sensor alignment. It is very common for someone to accidently bump one of the sensors causing them to go offline. There is typically a wingnut that can be loosened to adjust the safety sensor. This will ensure safe and proper operation. Here are some other issues that could cause your garage door to not close:
- Worn out Garage Door Rollers
- Garage Door Opener Forces not Set Correctly
- Broken or Dumped Garage Door Cable
- Broken Garage Door Spring
- Loss of Power to Garage Door Opener
- Bad Battery on Garage Door Remote
Garage Door Repair Company has all the tools and training to perform any and all of these repairs as needed in the Andover MN area. Garage Doors can be extremely dangerous and cause serious harm. We recommend everyone call a professional no matter what the issue to avoid injury. Same Day appointments are available in the Andover area.
