My Garage Door Starts Closing, Gets Halfway Down its Track, Then Reverses. What Gives?

So in order to prevent you, a loved one, a pet, or even your car from being crushed by the hydraulic mechanisms that power your garage door, every garage door manufactured after the early ‘90s is equipped with a sensor to monitor the space directly below the garage door.

You know how if you walk into a closing elevator, the elevator doors will reopen? It’s the same principle. Except if your garage door won’t close and there’s nothing to be found, it’s likely something is wrong with the sensor. Inspect it if you can, then ask a professional to take a look. Odds are it needs replacement, but you never know: it’s also possible some dust has gathered on it and you only need to clean it off!

Why Won’t My Garage Door Open?

This is one of the more frustrating problems a homeowner can face. After all, what sense is there in owning a car if you can’t get it out of the garage?

So you will almost certainly need the services of a trained mechanic for this one unless you have experience in replacing your garage door torsion spring. Faulty opening mechanisms are usually caused by counterbalance problems.

The good news? Your garage door will have an emergency release. Press it and open the door manually as a short-term fix. And for a long-term fix, may we suggest you call Home Garage Door Services?
