Keep reading for 4 reasons why your garage door might not be opening and closing properly, and then call Carroll Garage Doors for assistance!

  1. The track might not be properly aligned
  2. When the track your garage door slides on is not properly aligned, the door will not open or close properly. In some cases, this creates an extremely dangerous situation that should be addressed immediately.

  3. Something is triggering the safety mechanism   
  4. Another reason your garage door may not shut is due to something being in the way. Your safety mechanisms are in place to prevent the garage door from fully closing if something is underneath it, so check to ensure there is nothing blocking the path of your garage door before calling in the professionals at Carroll Garage Doors.

  5. Dead batteries in your transmitter  
  6. One of the most obvious—and simplest—reasons your garage door might not open or close is due to dead batteries in your transponder. If your garage door isn’t working, it’s best to check the transponder batteries first to ensure it’s not a simple fix.

  7. Other transmitter Issues
  8. Aside from dead batteries, there can be other issues with your transponder that might hinder your garage door’s functionality. There could be issues with the antenna not receiving signals or other issues that a trained garage door repair specialist will need to address.
