As a homeowner you trust that your Garage Door will go up and down consistently every time so it can really be frustrating if your door won’t close suddenly. Or similarly, you go to close your door and about halfway it stops and goes back up. Your Garage is a place that you store valuable things such as your car and other items that may be kept for storage so you don’t want to leave your home or go through an entire night with these things exposed. In St. Paul, MN we had a customer that was experiencing this issue where the door would almost close all of the way but then pop back up. Our experienced technicians at Rise & Shine Garage Doors were able to figure out that the door wasn’t running very smoothly and the safety features in the Garage Door Opener were sensing that resistance and causing the door to reverse.
Symptoms and Solutions to this Problem
Today’s modern Garage Door Opener has many safety features that are built in to the software to avoid things like coming down on your child or pet, closing and crushing your car, or leaving your door open once you have already left the premise. Here are a few symptoms and solutions to the problems that may be happening if your Garage Door won’t close:
- If your door is not running smoothly the opener will think that it is hitting something and go back up.
- If your child or pet walks underneath the door it has sensors that will cause to go back up.
- Same thing happens if a vehicle is parked underneath the Garage Door, if it comes down and hits the car it will sense that and reverse.
- We can perform a tune up and get your door running smooth again or adjust/fix any safety features that may be malfunctioning.
Whatever the issue is, trust the ones who know at Rise & Shine Garage Doors to get your Garage Door running smoothly again.
