There’s a variety of reasons that your garage won’t close. While it’s very inconvenient, it’s also very dangerous and should be repaired as soon as possible. Here a few reasons why your garage door isn’t closing. Be sure to call your local garage door repairman when you’re done reading this blog post.
Broken Garage Door Parts
If you haven’t kept up on garage door maintenance, then some of the moving parts in your garage door may be broken. Here are some of the most common parts that break down:
- Garage door springs
- Garage door cables
- Garage door tracks
Do not attempt to repair any of the above on your own. The plain truth is that it’s dangerous to attempt to repair your garage door if you don’t know what you’re doing. Just keep in mind that your garage door is well over 200 pounds and you don’t want it landing on your head.
Sensor Are Misaligned
Your garage door sensors can easily become misaligned and prevent your garage door from closing all the way. This is an easy fix. Just take a look at your garage door sensor. If they’re misaligned, simply return them to their original position.
Garage Door Opener Issues
If your garage door opener isn’t properly set up it can cause problems and cause your garage door not to close all the way. Check the settings on your garage door opener and see if that’s where the problem lies. Specifically, you’ll want to check the travel limit setting.
Don’t Fix Your Garage Door On Your Own
We need to remind you once again that it’s not save to repair your own garage door. If you don’t know what you’re doing you can seriously injure yourself and can cause even more damage to your garage door. It’s really worth it to let a professional garage door repair man take care of the work for you.
