Garage Door Openers

Garage doors are something we rely upon daily. They simplify our lives. Have you considered what you would do without your garage?

A-Team Garage Door Repair in Aurora ensures that all of your garage door repair and installation needs are covered.

A garage door opener is a motorized element that causes your garage door to move. It controls the opening and closing of the door. They function by either a garage door opener remote or a switch on the wall.  Garage door opener installation falls under our expertise; hence, we provide high-end quality services regarding openers.  

Garage doors operate technically, the door is connected to the opener by a curved arm. A garage door trolley is also attached to this arm. The trolley pulls and pushes this arm to enable movement.

Additionally, the garage door motor directs the movement of the door when prompted to open. This function is controlled by the spring system, which ensures that there is a balance in weight. Safe and steady movement is a result of this process.

An emergency release function is also included if an unexpected situation arises.

Our Garage Door Opener Repair Best Practices

We cover a wide variety of repair problems to ensure that you never have to worry about fixing your garage door. From simple to more complex cases, our team is always available for assistance.

We offer stellar services to ensure that you do not experience any problems after installing or repairing your garage door with us.

➤The Garage Door Opener is Not Closing Normally (Sensors)-

If your garage door is not closing properly, you need to check the sensors’ alignment and height, and the switch. It could require a simple adjustment to resolve the issue. The sensors must be directly facing one another.

You need to check that there are no objects in the path of the door or that there is no obstruction. If there is, the sensors are going to prevent the door from closing.

A more serious situation could arise if there are wiring problems or faulty sensors that need to be replaced.

➤Grinding Noises-

Grinding noises often indicate that there is something wrong with the gears. Gears are located inside the opener. We look inside the opener to ensure that everything is functioning properly and that there are no faulty parts.

Grinding noises can also result from other factors, such as loose rollers or hinges, poor lubrication, previous improper installation, or a stripped our opener gear or trolley. We cover all of these problem areas.

➤The Remote Keypad or Control of the Garage Door Opener is Not Responding-

Our technicians examine all the programming and functional properties of the garage door keypad and remote that open and close the garage door to ensure that you do not experience any difficulty.

We also fix any issues regarding this matter. We provide and fix a universal garage door opener, wall mount garage door opener, and garage door remote.

➤Opener Reversing Feature Doesn’t Work-

A professional is needed immediately if you are experiencing issues with your opener reversing feature. It is a safety concern. We provide a garage door safety check to ensure that none of your friends or family are at risk of injury.

➤Emergency Release is Pulled Down-

Using the garage door emergency release function disengages the opener. This means that the garage door won’t open.

The emergency release is engaged by pulling the cord down and toward the door in the motor’s opposite direction.
