What to do when you push the opener, the garage door goes down a bit, then pops back up

If you’ve been a homeowner for awhile, you know that unexpected repairs constantly pop up, just when you least expect it. One common problem many homeowners experience sooner or later is that when they push their garage door opener button, the door descends a bit, then pops back up again. This can be annoying because you want to simply close your garage door and move along with your day.

Thankfully this issue is pretty easily resolved. Simply clear any obstructions that have gotten in the way of your photo sensors and you’ll be good to go!

Common garage door issues

There are some garage door issues that you may be able to resolve on your own. We gladly share this information to make your life easier and save you the time of calling a technician. One common issue we frequently receive calls and questions about is the black residue that sometimes appears on the outside of garage doors. Don’t worry, it’s just oil – so you can just wash it off with your garden hose. It’s important to wash your garage door at least once a year to prevent black residue and rust spots at the bottom of your door.

Another common issue with garage doors is that they simply stop opening and closing. Replace the batteries in your opener and that should do the trick. If not, give us a call at 1-888-578-2360 and we’ll come figure out what’s up.

If your garage door squeaks or screeches loudly when opening or closing, get a spray-on garage door lubricant and that should take care of the issue. If the squeaks and screeches don’t go away, call Carroll Garage Doors at 1-888-578-2360 for professional assistance.
