When you are stuck with a broken garage door that won’t open, usually one of three things has happened:

  • Broken Spring – The torsion springs are a pair of tightly wound coils located above your door. The tension is what allows your door to open and close. When the spring is stretched or broken, your garage door cannot open.
  • Malfunctioning Opener – This could be a simple fix of changing the battery in your keypad or remote, or it could be something more involved, such as interference from another radio source blocking your signal.
  • Broken Cable – Lift cables work to hold the spring tension that counterbalances the weight of the door, making it difficult to lift the door. Over time the cable may become worn from use or deteriorate from moisture and snap.

If your garage door opens normally but will not close, chances are the photo eye mechanism is out of alignment.

  • At the bottom of the door, there are two tiny sensors that transmit an invisible beam between them to detect if anything is in the door’s path.
  • If something triggers the beam, the door will not close for safety reasons.
  • When the photo eyes are dirty or misaligned it will cause the doors to stay open.
  • In most cases the safety eyes will need to be moved or replaced, a quick and inexpensive fix.
