When do I Need a Garage Door Sensor Repair

Not sure why your garage door is acting difficult? Here are the most common signs the problem may be your garage door cables:

Garage Door is Unable to Close

The most common signs you need a garage door sensor repair is when you notice your garage door is not able to close. You will notice when you press the button either on your wall switch or your remote control and the door does not close. In some cases the door come down partially but goes back up at some point in the process.

Another sign the sensors are not aligned or defective is when you notice the automatic opener clicks 10 times after the door has reached fully open position.

Along with the clicking you should also see the lights on the opener blinking with every one of those 10 clicks.

Lastly, to further confirm your garage door sensors are failing, push the wall button and keep it pressed until door closes completely. This will by pass the safety sensors. If the door reaches the floor, that is the best sign your sensors need to be repaired or adjusted. Note: you won’t be able to do this from your remote. If your sensors are not working properly, the only way to bypass them is from the wall switch.
