What Do I Do If My Garage Door Keeps Stopping?

Your garage door probably isn’t something you think about often, unless there is something wrong with it. When it stops working properly, it likely becomes something that you start to worry about because you can see the dollar signs adding up if you need a new garage door. Thankfully, there are some steps that you can take on your own before calling a repair professional if your garage door keeps stopping and won’t open or close properly.

  1. See if there is anything under the door blocking its path
  2. The first thing to do is check and make sure that there is nothing obstructing the garage door. Did your kids leave their bikes lying underneath the garage door? Or did a car not get pulled in all the way? It’s always a good idea to check to make sure that nothing is blocking the garage door’s path before you panic.
  3. Ensure the track is not blocked
  4. The next thing you should do is make sure nothing is jamming the track. If your kids tossed their sports equipment in bins by the garage door or a rake fell over after you raked the leaves, it might be jamming the garage door. Do a quick inspection to see if there is anything in the way of the track.
  5. Check for something interfering with the sensor
  6. The last thing you should check for is to make sure that nothing is interfering with the sensor. Even though there might not be anything in the way of the garage door, if something is in line of the sensor or the sensors are not lined up, your garage door will not close.
  7. Call a professional garage door repair provider
  8. If all the above tricks fail, you should call a professional garage door repair provider. At Carroll Garage Doors, we can fix any issues with your garage door!
