Rochester Pros Share 3 Quick Ways to Fix a Faulty Garage Door, Rochester, New York

Your garage should protect your car from the elements, but it can be quite inconvenient when the garage door isn’t working properly. If you’re having this problem, it may be time to seek the help of a garage door repair expert. Want to try a few DIY tricks first? The experts at Felluca Overhead Door in Rochester, New York, share a few insider tips below.

Troubleshooting A Broken Garage Door

1. The Door Doesn’t Lock 

Check if the two horizontal bars that lock the door are aligned with the locking slots. As time passes, these bars shift out of alignment. To realign these bars, unscrew the guide brackets along the edges of the garage door. Then, reposition the brackets so they easily move the bars into the locking holes.

image2. There Isn’t Any Power

Most old garage door openers include pressure adjustments for both raising and lowering. Check the settings. Lost power to a garage door could also be caused by a faulty electrical outlet. Make sure the opener is plugged in and the outlet is working.

3. The Garage Door Randomly Opens & Closes

If your garage door opens and closes randomly, see if the transmitter is wedged underneath a heavy object. Also, try changing the frequency of your transmitter—a neighbor may have the same frequency, which could cause your garage door to open or close with theirs.
