Garage Motor Repair And Replacement

Garage door motors are a very important part of the whole garage door system, especially if you rely on the automated system in your garage doors. However, because of frequent use, the motor may start to work inefficiently after a while. This can cause your door opener to jam or to make screeching noises when it opens.

When you start experiencing several problems with your garage door motor, it’s important to call up your garage door repair service company to have it checked out, especially if you don’t know a thing about garage motors. However, you can also inspect it a bit to see if it’s something that you can repair on your own. Here are the most common problems related to garage motors and how to fix them:

• Not functioning properly – if your garage door opens and closes properly everyday and then suddenly stops functioning, you may need to take a look at the wiring. It’s possible that the system is unplugged or that someone tampered with it while you are away. Check the cables and make sure they’re connected and in place. If nothing seems to be amiss, but the system still won’t function, check the fuse or circuit breaker to see if they have been tripped.

• Doors opening/closing half way – Sometimes, your garage doors won’t open and close all the way and stop somewhere in the middle. This is a telltale sign that your garage door motor is probably succumbing to wear and tear. However, this doesn’t mean that you have to replace it at the first sign of trouble; sometimes simply adjusting the close limit switch does the job. However, once the limit switch has been adjusted all the way through and you’re still experiencing problems, then maybe you need to replace your motor.

• Weird noises – If you hear a screeching or low grunting noise each time you open and close the door, first check to see if it’s the motor making the weird noises. It’s also possible that the noise came from the tracks or hinges, signaling that they need a good oiling. However, if the source of the noise is the motor, it could mean that it’s overexerting itself. This could mean that the motor is already nearing the end of its lifespan.

If you feel like it’s time to have your garage door motor replaced, check with a garage door repair technician to see if extensive repairs can be done first. Your technician might still be able to salvage your garage motor, or suggest that you go ahead with the replacement. It’s recommended that you let a professional do the replacement for you, since there’s some wiring involved. Replacing your garage door motor can also be a good way for you to finally upgrade your automated garage door system.

When it comes to troubles with your garage door motor, remember to never shrug off warning signs that your motor is having problems. Early detection, repair and replacement are the key to preventing worse problems later on that might cost you a lot of time and money.
