How to Repair a Garage Door

Your garage door is one of the most used appliances in your home, if not the most. Over time, you will likely face a problem that requires a repair. This video shows you how to diagnose and execute successful garage door repairs.

Sometimes, the garage door fails to open or the light does not turn on. Remember that most garage doors today are powered with electricity, so you should first check to see if the garage door opener is unplugged.

If it is and the power still doesn’t work, check your circuit breaker. If the problem still isn’t resolved, you will want to call a garage door repair service.

If your garage door keeps starting to close but reversing half way through, check the laser lights on the side of the doorway. These laser lights will reverse the opening if there is anything blocking them. Move any equipment out of the way and see if the light is on. It may require adjustment and cleaning to work properly.

If your garage door is making grinding or banging sounds as it opens and shuts, this may indicate a track issue. The garage door is installed with wheels that guide it along the track. If the track becomes bent, this can cause problems for the garage door. You may need to call a repair man to fix it if the bend is substantial.
