Garage Door Opener Repair
Customer Issue: The customer’s garage door opener wouldn’t turn on, even when plugged in and hooked up.
Our Solution: When a garage door opener won’t light up at all, the problem is usually either the battery or the motherboard. We tried hotwiring the opener to an external battery, and everything came on! So, we concluded our garage door opener repair project by removing the old battery and making a more permanent replacement.
Broken Spring Replacement
Customer Issue: The customer kept track of her spring replacement history and determined that her current pair were about to give out.
Our Solution: Broken spring replacement is always easier if you catch the springs before the final snap. Easing the tension out of the springs was an easy process, and after removing the caps we disconnected the old springs without issue. Some cleaning and oiling later, and the extension cables were ready for the new springs.
Customer Issue: The customer’s garage door moved slowly, and one side seemed to be listing. Several rollers on the slow-moving side were rusty and needed replacement.
Our Solution: Lifting the garage door out of its tracks was time-consuming in this case, due to the rollers not cooperating, but with some lubrication, we succeeded. After the hub and roller replacement, we cleaned the tracks, added some new waterproofing to the seams, and reinstalled the door. The new rollers turn quickly and quietly.
