Having a Garage Door that won’t open can be a major issue. Whether you are leaving for work or get the kids out the door on their way to school, a Malfunctioning Garage Door will quickly put a damper on your plans. This was recently the case for one of our Minneapolis, Minnesota customers. This homeowner was going to be on his way to work when suddenly pressing the garage door button no longer opened his garage door. After trying to do some quick troubleshooting the customer decided it would be best to have a professional take a look. This is where Garage Door Repair Company came in to play, we quickly within a couple hours had a technician onsite to assess the issue. It was determined that the gear inside the Garage Door Opener had stripped out. After going over all the repair/replacement options the customer decided the best course of action was to replace the Gear Assembly. Within 1 hour of our arrival we had this job completed and this customer on his way to work. Our customer was so happy to be on his way that he said he would definitely be recommending us to friends and family.
What makes a Gear Strip?
There are many reasons why a Gear on a Garage Door Opener may strip out. Many of which can be avoided with Annual Garage Door Tune Up/Inspections. This would allow a trained technician evaluate the overall health of your garage door to ensure peak performance at all times. Here is a list of the most common problems that cause Gears to strip:
- Broken Spring (Running your opener with a Broken Garage Door Spring will cause added stress to the opener and over time cause the gear to strip out)
- Worn out Rollers (Garage Door Rollers are the #1 cause to gears stripping, when rollers go bad they essentially stop rolling all together. Thus more or less dragging in the tracks which does no good to any aspect of the garage door)
- Broken Cable (if you notice your door is crooked or you have a broken cable refrain from trying to operate your garage door. Your door will only go more crooked and get jammed causing damage to the operation system)
If you are experiencing any of these issues with your garage door operating system, the pros at Garage Door Repair Company can help you!
