If you want to know what your garage door needs for security and functionality, read the answers to the most frequently asked questions
Should I adjust the photo eyes alone?
It's not really hard to adjust the sensors of your garage door opener but still if you need professional help, you can call our technicians. You must make sure the lights on both sensors are on. So, loosen up their fasteners and turn them with your hands. They must face one the other.
What causes a garage door to shake?
This typically happens when the tracks are misaligned, the hinges are loose or the rollers are not moving properly. Inspect these parts and troubleshoot them. Our specialists explain that if the door uses extension springs, the issue may be with the pulley sheaves which have to be checked.
How long do garage door springs normally last?
Torsion springs can normally last around 10,000 “cycles” before wearing out. A cycle refers to the time the door opens and closes, and a worn-out spring often makes a loud banging noise. It is recommended that you ask our experts from Garage Door Repair Pasadena to take a look at them if they are about to break.
What do I do with a non-functioning wall switch?
It is recommended to test your wall switch first before doing anything else. Test the switch by unscrewing a wire and touching the other terminal with it. You can also test its wires by jumping the two terminals with a short wire. If either testing method results in an open garage door, then you should replace your wall switch.
My garage door only goes down with the wall switch. How do I fix this?
Our garage door experts working in Pasadena say that it is due to the alignment of your sensors. Check to see if they are properly aligned. If the problem still persists, then your sensors may be faulty or damaged. If this is the case, get them replaced as soon as you can.
