The door does not open from the button or the remote control

When the door no longer responds to commands from the button or remote control, the cause can be the disconnection from the power source that ensures the functionality of the automation. It is also possible that the circuit breaker, fuse or GFCI that controls the circuit may be burned or defective. If none of these causes apply, it means that the engine is burned and you will need a new one. In this case, you will also need the help of a professional garage door repair Denver CO company, to prevent causing greater damage to the automation.

The door does not close completely

If the garage door opens completely, but closes partially, there is a possibility that one of these three causes may apply to you: the shut-off switch may require adjustments; safety sensors may require adjustments or realignment; wheels may be broken or rusty.

The garage door does not respond to commands from the remote control or main keyboard

In this case, causes can also be varied. First, the receiving antenna of the motor may not pick up the signal transmitted by the remote control. Modern automations for garage doors are basically small radios that operate at 315mH, and a few extra meters can affect their functionality.

The antenna on the motor may also be defective.

Additionally, if the engine works with the keyboard but not with the remote control, the remote control may need to be reconfigured, or its batteries may be empty.
