It’s a familiar feeling for any homeowner: you press the button to close your garage door and nothing happens. You just can’t seem to get your garage door to close. Don’t panic! You can try a few simple things to troubleshoot the issue and get your garage door working again. American Pro Garage Doors has several locations throughout Tennessee and North Carolina to help you with any of your garage door repairs. Contact us today and read on to learn four ways to troubleshoot your garage door that will not close.
The most common reason a garage door won’t close is that the sensors are blocked or misaligned. The sensors are located at the bottom of the door and must be aligned with each other in order for the door to close. Check to make sure there’s nothing blocking the sensors, like a pile of leaves or a bag of tools. If the sensors are blocked or misaligned, try adjusting them and see if that solves the problem.
Before you press the button to close the door, make sure there’s no debris or other objects blocking the tracks. If the tracks are blocked, the door will not be able to close properly. Check for debris, leaves, toys, or any other objects that could be blocking the tracks.
Garage doors are heavy, and the springs are responsible for lifting the door. If the springs are worn out or broken, the door might not close properly. Check to make sure the springs are in good condition and properly adjusted.
If the wiring is not connected correctly, the door might not be able to close. Check the wiring to make sure it’s connected properly and that the wires are not frayed or damaged. If you are unsure of how to check the wiring or are concerned about dealing with electrical components, contact American Pro Garage Doors for assistance.
