Why sometime you click on your remote control and the garage door will go up but will not go down? Garage Door Sensors Is The Answer.
First thing you want to look at are the safety sensors that trigger the garage door to not go down. The two major safety sensors are Liftmaster and Genie, so we recommend them as well. The next time you call for Denver garage door repair, change your garage door sensors as well.
What do we need to look for when our garage door does not open or close?
First, we have to look at the wiring on the sensors. Also, The wiring on the motor head (garage door opener) and the way the brackets are mounted as well.
For example, when genie safe T-beams sensors has green light on one side it has a red light on the other opposing side. Therefore, if the safety sensors on each side are not aligned correctly the door will not shut. However, in that same unaligned garage door sensors case, the garage door will go up. Then, we need to make sure that the red light on the other side is solid red. In case it is solid red it means that the sensors are aligned correctly. However, if it is blinking the garage door is not going to work properly.
The Liftmaster Garage Door Sensors.
On Liftmaster sensors it has green light on one side of the garage door opening and it has amber light on the other side. The green light on these sensors is the one that tells you that the sensors are aligned up. Another thing that we need to check is the safety sensors wiring. On the back of the sensor there are a several holes where the wire goes. Moreover, you may see something similar to a speaker wire push in pins or some other kind with screws. It Could mean that there is green corrosion. Also, if the wires are not making a good connection the garage door safety sensors are not going align properly.
Another thing we need to check on the garage door is to make sure that staples didn’t harm the wires through the insulation or maybe throughout time the wire broke from vibrations.
and a last thing we need to check on the motor head is to make sure that the wires maybe stretched up and removed from the terminals , there are many kinds of motors , could be also a plug coming from the sensors wires.
