With the technological advances available to us nowadays, having a garage door opener has become a very beneficial addition to our homes. The average Lake Grove homeowner opens and closes their garage door over 1500 times a year. This shows that garage doors are quickly replacing front doors as the primary entrance and exit point to a residence. That amount of use is can be a lot of wear and tear on your garage door and its opener. There are ways to add significant quality and longevity to your garage door and its opener. Taking just a few minutes out of your day can prevent costly repairs and replacements.

DIY Garage Door Opener Maintenance

  • A weak signal in your remote control could be something as simple as dead or dying batteries. Periodically check your remote control batteries and replace them as needed.
  • Every few months, check and adjust the auto-reverse system. This can be done by opening your garage and then placing an object in the way of the sensors. Press the button to close the door. The blockage should trigger your door to reverse. If your door does not immediately re-open, make sure the two electronic eyes are aligned and keep them clean with an all purpose cleaner. In the event that your system is still not properly working, one or both of the sensors may need to be replaced.
  • Test your garage door's manual release handles. If there is an issue with your opener, this feature allows you to manually open the door. Your owners manual will have proper instructions for use. Knowing how to use this feature is important in the event of an emergency such as entrapment.
  • It's important to keep all of the moving parts lubricated. White lithium grease is great for your opener's chain or screw. Spray lubricants are available for your overhead springs. This could add years to the life of your door and opener.
  • Inspect the connection between your garage door opener and the electrical outlet. Check for damage like fraying and make sure that it is secure.
  • Wiping your garage door and its opener down with an all purpose cleaner will clear debris, keep your sensors on point, and improve overall function. It's also a good way to observe any cracks, warping, and other damage that can potentially cause expensive malfunctions in your system.
  • Listen for abnormal noises and watch out for jerking motions. Don't ignore signs of malfunctions or damage. Garage door openers save energy, money, and time. They also provide your home with valuable security measures and personal convenience.
