Fix these garage door problems


Huddersfield Garage Doors has been supplying and installing high quality garage doors for Yorkshire residents for over 20 years, and we like to ensure our garage doors give good service for many years to come. If you are having garage door issues, don't hesitate to call in our expert garage door specialists to resolve your problems right away. Here is a quick run down of common garage door issues, with tips on how to check if you can resolve them quickly yourself.

  1. The garage door starts to close, then stops and opens again. This is likely to be a problem with the sensor eye, or something blocking the tracks, or an obstacle that the safety device can sense. Check and clean the sensor eyes, and realign them if necessary. Check there is nothing preventing the garage door opening mechanism from operating smoothly. If you are still having problems, you could have a broken or worn cable or spring, or bent tracks. These are serious garage door issues, that will require the attention of the garage door team from Huddersfield Garage Doors.
  2. The garage door opens and closes by itself. This could be caused by weak batteries in the remote control, or a faulty circuit board, or signal interference. You should replace your batteries, and if there are still some garage door issues, change the code or frequency of your remote. If this doesn't resolve the garage door issues, call in the team from Huddersfield Garage Doors promptly, to prevent accidents from unexpected movement of the door.
  3. The garage door makes unusual noises. Popping or squeaking noises can indicate worn or damaged rollers, and scraping noises could indicate a frayed cable. Both these garage door issues will require the immediate attention of a technician from Huddersfield Garage Doors.
  4. The garage door opens very slowly. This can be caused by a damaged or faulty spring or cable, or the tracks or mechanisms may need lubricating.
  5. The garage door wont open or close. Firstly, always replace the batteries in the remote control. Check the keypad is not damaged, and check there is no heavy object preventing the door from opening, before calling the repair team at Huddersfield Garage Doors, for prompt expert attention to all your garage door issues.
