Common Issues with Residential Garage Door Openers
In our 15 years providing garage door repair services, we have seen a few common issues that tend to occur with residential garage door openers. These include:
Your garage door does not respond when using either the remote control or keypad. The antenna might not be able to reach the remote control. Contemporary garage door openers are tiny radios that transmit at a frequency and a few extra feet of distance can have an impact on the signal. Remote controls and keypads have delicate electronics within that can occasionally lose their programming.
Your garage door is not closing all the way. It could be necessary to change the close-limit switch. The set-limit switches on your garage door tell the motor when to stop running during both the opening and closing processes. The door may not close if the close-limit switch is set up incorrectly.
The motor does not stop running once the garage door is open. This is a unique issue that indicates that the up-limit switch needs to be relocated away from the motor unit. It is uncommon for this issue to develop out of nowhere. If the motor unit’s gears have been stripped, it would allow the motor to run without moving the door.
Garage door springs and garage door “safety eyes” can actually be the source of the problem. Garage doors are heavy and weigh a few hundred pounds, and when the spring starts to wear out, the door stops operating. Garage door safety eyes can also be a common problem due to factors such as the need for cleaning as dust and dirt can block the sensor.

Garage Door Opener Repair - It’s Important to Fix Before Considering an Expensive Replacement
If you have a garage door opener that is not working properly, it is important to get it fixed before considering an expensive replacement. Many things can go wrong with a garage door opener. But we have seen every type of problem, and in many cases can fix or replace components to get your garage door working again.
One of the most common problems with garage door openers is the chain coming off the track. This can usually be caused by either a broken or a loose chain. If you have a broken chain, it will need to be replaced. If you have a loose chain, it can be tightened by a qualified technician.
Below is the list of brands we can repair for you:

Parts of a Garage Door Opener We Can Fix and Replace
There are many different parts to a garage door opener and at Garage Door Geeks we are experts in repairing and replacing all of them. Some of the most common parts that we fix and replace include:
- Pulleys, sprockets, and gears: Are very important to the machinery of your garage door opener. These parts transmit force throughout the machine so that the motor can start lifting.
- Chains: For chain drive garage door openers, a metal chain is used to open the garage door. These openers use a running assembly unit with a chain coupled to tension springs to raise and lower the garage door.
- Belts: Belt drive openers operate by pulling on a rubber belt to open the garage door.
- Garage Door Cables: Cables are positioned on either side of the door and work with torsion and extension springs. This makes it easier to raise and lower the garage door. If one cable snaps, the other will soon experience stress and fail as well.
- Rails: These are tracks that the garage door uses to open and close. They are located on either side of the door and above the door.
- Brackets: Garage door brackets are an essential part of the running of the garage door system as it supports the weight of the door and allows the doors to be used repeatedly.
These are just some of the most common parts of a garage door opener that we repair and replace. If you are having any problems with your opener then contact us today. Give us a call or fill out our Live Booking Form for expert diagnosis and repairs, as well as FREE QUOTES.
Garage Door Opener Remote and Keypad
If your garage door opener remote or keypad has stopped working, there are a few things you can do to try and fix the issue.
First, check the batteries in both the remote and keypad. For garage door openers that aren’t working – replacing the batteries can do the trick! We have seen it many times! If this doesn’t work there are a few other things you can try.
If your remote uses dip switches to program, make sure all the dip switches are set to the same position as your opener. If they are not, program the remote again. If your keypad has a code lock feature, make sure the correct code is entered before trying to open the garage door.
If none of these solutions work, it’s possible that your garage door opener needs to be repaired or replaced. At Garage Door Geeks we have experts who can assist you to diagnose and solve the problem. We also carry replacement universal remotes and can install new keypads.
