An automatic electric garage door makes life easy. It saves you a fair bit of physical effort in opening and closing the garage door. However, a malfunctioning or completely dead electric garage door can be a real pain in the backside. But before you call up a garage door repair service, there are a few things that you can try on your own to rectify a faulty electric garage door. The infographic below touches upon some of the most common electric garage door problems and how you can deal with them.
While some of these problems are easy to solve, others are more complicated. For instance, issues related to the door’s sensors getting misaligned or covered with dust can cause automatic garage door problems. Simply cleaning off the dust and realigning the sensors fixes these issues. However, the same can’t be said for problems with the door’s gears and sprockets. These parts tend to wear down with time and are not something you can replace on your own. In such situations, calling on an automatic garage door repair service is unavoidable.
