The most complex part of your garage door system is arguably the opener. This motorized unit is the driving force behind your door, and is designed to provide many cycles of smooth, hassle-free operation. However, as with any complicated system, this device can gradually develop some problems over time.
Why Do Openers Develop Issues?
Garage door openers can often be used more than a thousand times per year in a busy household, so it’s no surprise that they’re subjected to a lot of wear and tear over the years. As with any complex machine that are comprised of many moving parts, things can slowly wear out. Dust and dirt can creep inside the circuit board, motor gears can wear out and eventually break, and pulley systems can become misaligned or detach.
Identifying Problems Early
Garage door openers are specially-designed to work smoothly and reliably, especially if they are made by some of the name brand manufacturers such as Genie, Liftmaster or Marantec, for example. If your opener begins to work erratically, slowly, jerkily or noisily, it may be a sign that something is beginning to break. It’s likely that the problem will worsen over time until the opener will eventually fail, so we strongly advise contacting our professional technicians as soon as you notice a problem with your opener.
