Why Is My Garage Door Not Opening?

You probably don’t think much about the operation of your garage door until it stops working. A malfunctioning garage door can be a big issue, especially if you are parking vehicles inside of it. If your garage door isn’t opening properly, there can be some simple—and easy to fix—reasons behind it. Keep reading to learn more about why your garage door might not be opening and how Carroll Garage Doors can help.

  1. The batteries in the remote are dead
  2. One of the most common reasons that your garage door is not opening is that the batteries in your transmitter are dead. The good news is that this is also the easiest issue to fix! Transmitter batters can easily be replaced and checking to see if that is the issue is as simple as pushing the button in the garage to see if the door still opens and closes. If it works when using the built-in transmitter, then it is your remote that has dead batteries and they just need to be swapped out.
  3. You have a broken spring
  4. If you have a broken spring, your garage door also will not open. You will know there is a broken spring because it will create a loud bang. If a broken spring is the issue, you should call a professional garage door repair company right away.
  5. The disconnect switch is enabled
  6. The disconnect switch is a switch the changes your garage door to manual operation. It is typically attached to a rope that hangs from the motor. If your disconnect switch is enabled, your garage door will not open and close with the remote or transmitter.
  7. You need a new garage door
  8. While many of these repairs are quick and affordable, sometimes the issue is too big to repair or simply not worth it. Sometimes when your garage door does not open, you need to get it replaced. This can be expensive, but there are many benefits to having a new garage door installed.
