When the automatic garage door suddenly stops working and refuses to open, most of the time the causes are very simple and the garage door Denver repair solutions are at hand.

When the door no longer responds to commands from the button or remote control, the most probable cause is the disconnection from the power source that ensures the functionality of the automation. Check the socket to which the system is connected and push the plug all the way in.

It is also possible that the circuit breaker, fuse or GFCI that controls the circuit may be burned or defective. If you find that other electrical circuits or lights are not working, this is the main cause and you will need to reset the engine or replace the burned components. If the switch or GFCI is triggered repeatedly, it is a sign that somewhere in the system there is a short circuit. Finally, if none of the above causes apply, this means that the engine is burned and you will need a new one, as well as the help of a professional, to prevent further damage to the garage door automation.

Sometimes, a garage door that closes perfectly may still refuse to open in winter. If this happens, look for the wheel to adjust the opening sensitivity of the motor. Especially in the cold season, when the wheels are prone to frost, opening the door may fail. De-icing them is the obvious solution, and lubricating them will prevent further problems.
