Garage Door Spring Repair in

Your garage door repair in is just around the corner.  But just like any other mechanical device requires regular maintenance to perform its best day-in and day-out. This includes cleaning and lubricating your garage door hinges, rollers and track on an annual basis.  Cleaning your garage door more or  track is the first step. Don’t use water or other chemicals as this can cause build up and do more damage than good. Instead, use a broom to brush off any dust and debris. Be particularly careful to clean out spider webs and other insect nests that might capture other dirt and particles that can clog up the tracks and wheels.

For garage doors in consider doing this seasonally after the brown pine pollen has finished covering the ground. In other areas, the spring is a good time to do maintenance because winter vehicle traffic brings an abundance of dirt and grime into the garage.

Garage Door Opener Installation

Sticking garage doors can be caused by a few issues. If you have a remote garage opener, check batteries, sensors and switches first. If you open the garage door manually, check for obstructions in the wheel track first.Different weather conditions and temperatures can affect the lubricant. Using more of a proper type may help sticking doors. One of the major causes of stuck garage doors is that they are hung unevenly. Make sure all the cables and springs that hold them are even length and have the same springiness from side to side.

The Door Moves Unevenly and Shimmies Side to Side
The easiest way to solve and unevenly opening garage door is by removing an obstruction or debris in the tracks where the wheels run. Clear and clean those first to see if the problem is solved.If not, check the quality of the springs. They should be the same length and stretch the same amount. On doors with automatic openers, the motors that control both sides of the door may be faulty. A replacement may be in order.

Loud Noises When Opening or Closing the Garage Door
Loud screeching, grinding or squealing noises coming from the garage door signifies a problem with dirt or debris in the track or lack of lubrication. Clean the entire track where the door wheels run without harsh cleaners to remove dirt and anything else that could get in the way of a smooth operation.Use oil specially designed for garage doors, or a standard hardware lubricant such as WD-40, on all the door tracks and hardware. Run the door up and down a few times to check that the problem is solved.

Garage Door Falls Too Quickly When Lowering It
A falling garage door can pose a great risk of injury to people who are opening or closing it. This problem is caused by broken cables or overly loose springs. With the door in the closed position, carefully examine all the apparatus to determine what the problem is. Do not replace springs or cables on your own; instead consult a professional garage door repair man. There is several safety hazards related to replacing garage door springs without the proper equipment or knowledge.

Remote Control Door Opener Fails to Work
After checking the batteries and switches to make sure the device is powered up, the garage door still might have problems opening or closing correctly. If none of the above solutions helps – checking cables and clearing the tracks – you may have to either replace the garage opener motor or sensors.

Top reasons why you need garage door repair. This is part of a continuing series.
8. The disconnect switch was enabled
If you can hear your garage door motor running for what seems like the full amount of time it normally would take to open or close the door, but the door doesn’t move, chances are the disconnect switch has been enabled. Every garage door opener comes with a disconnect switch in case you lose power. This allows you to open or close the door manually so your car isn’t stuck in the garage until the power comes back on.

This switch is usually attached to a rope that can be pulled or a knob that can be turned to disconnect. Sometimes, this switch can accidentally come unhooked causing the door to be disconnected from the motor.

However, if you lose power and use the disconnect switch, you’ll need to reattach it to use your garage door motor to open and close your door again. Open the door all the way and then reattach this hook. Then try opening or closing the door again with your transmitter, and you should be all set. It will be easiest to reattach this hook when your car is not in the garage, as you’ll need to place a step ladder underneath the motor to reach it.

How to program a garage door opener
Many people find they need to program the garage door opener on a HomeLink system that came with their car. Maybe you bought the car used and don't have a manual, or you do have a manual but find it hard to follow. In either case, it really is not difficult to program the garage door opener. It should require no more than 5-10 minutes, as long as you follow each step carefully. Having a helper will make the process go even quicker.
If you are having trouble operating your garage door opener, read Troubleshooting the Most Common Garage Door Opener Problems for advice on diagnosing the problem. The receiver, handheld transmitter, and in-car transmitter must all be in good operating condition to ensure success when you program the garage door opener.

The HomeLink system is available on a wide range of cars, and it can also be purchased as an aftermarket product. It is compatible with nearly all garage door opening systems, including Liftmaster, Chamberlain, Craftsman, Genie, Overhead Door, Allstar and Wayne Dalton. The primary requirement is that the garage door opener operates on a frequency of 288-433 MHz. You should be able to find the frequency of your unit on the back of the handheld transmitter.

Programming Your Garage Door Opener
To program the garage door opener, it will be necessary to raise and lower the door. So, to keep the process safe, make sure that children and pets stay away from the garage.

Once you are ready to begin, just follow these steps:
Always begin with a new battery in the handheld transmitter. If you're not sure how old the battery is, go ahead and replace it.

Turn the key to the accessory ("ACC") position before you begin programming the garage door opener.
For a first-time programming (or if you think the garage door opener has been previously programmed), press the two outer buttons on the transmitter for about 20 seconds, until the light starts flashing.

On the transmitter, hold the button to be programmed down until it begins flashing slowly (20-30 seconds). Keep holding the button down for the next step.
Grab the handheld transmitter in your other hand and point it toward the flashing light from about 2 inches away. Press the operating button on the handheld unit. Once the light starts flashing faster, the frequency has been entered into the HomeLink transmitter. Release both buttons.
This step is easiest with a helper. You will need a ladder and, quite possibly, a flashlight. On the garage door opener receiver (i.e., the motor, located inside the garage), press the training button (also called a "smart" or "learn" button). The button may not be labeled, but it will have a small light next to it that flashes when the button is pressed. (Note, if the indicator light stays on continuously, the programming is complete and the garage door opener should function.)

If the indicator light flashes (or if it flashes briefly before becoming continuously lit), you have 30 seconds to perform the following step (which is why this goes quicker with a helper).
In the car, with the key still turned to ACC, press the button you programmed earlier on the in-car transmitter for three seconds. Remove your finger from the button, then press again for another three seconds. If the garage door hasn't moved yet, press the button for another three seconds. Once the door moves, the garage door opener has been programmed.



If your garage door opener does not seem to respond to the programming efforts, unplug the receiver for a minute, then try again. Make sure your new battery in the handheld transmitter is installed correctly. If you still can't properly program the garage door opener, call the HomeLink== customer service department
