Titan Overhead Door Opener Repairs
Titan Garage Door Repairs has seen just about every kind of garage door problem you can imagine. And then some, but time and time again the underlying issue with a garage door comes back to one component: the opener. There are many reasons why your overhead door opener suddenly functions incorrectly or fails completely. In one customer’s garage, we even found wasps nest blocking the photo-eye sensors.
Fortunately, the skilled technicians at Titan come prepared for all eventualities, and they are trained to deal with all kinds of issues. Plus, we stock and fit all of the top branded components and parts, and can generally carry out repairs on a same-day basis.
Why Call the Professionals?
There may be occasions when you’re able to save some cash with your DIY skills. That said, fixing a garage door problem by yourself is a challenging prospect. Garage doors are heavy, and the cables and springs can be dangerous to the untrained, or if you don’t have the specialist tools for the job. Particularly the overhead opener is a complex device that requires experience and know-how to deal with correctly. The following are just a few of the garage door opener issues we’ve been called upon to fix for our customers in and around Winnipeg.
Titan Garage Door Opener Repair: Real Customer Scenarios
First: Dead transmitter batteries.
Sounds simple, but it’s not uncommon for the batteries to be overlooked. The garage door remote needs power to send a signal to the opener so it can raise and lower the door. Our customer had several remotes for this chain driven garage door, one with a dead battery. Our technician changed the batteries in all the remotes because if one is dead, it won’t be long before the batteries in the other remotes fail too.
Second: Photo eyes dirty or misaligned on a belt-driven garage door.
As a safety precaution, every garage door has two small sensors on either side of the garage entrance. They send an invisible beam to each other to make sure there’s nothing in the way when the garage door closes. If the beam is interrupted, the door will stop. This safety feature prevents the door from closing on a person or a vehicle.
Our customer’s door had stopped working after his son had reversed into the door the night before. Our technicians arrived a couple of hours after he called Titan. Besides the obvious dent in one of the door panels, our experts also found dirty and misaligned photo sensors had put the overhead door out of action. A spot of cleaning and a few slight adjustments brought the sensors back up to speed, along with a minor door renovation that quickly restored our customer’s garage to its former glory.
Second: Garage door not closing completely.
Intruders and burglars love a garage door that leaves a gap just wide enough for a crowbar when it’s supposed to be closed. With this in mind, our customer wanted her door fixed pretty darned pronto and called Titan’s 24/7 emergency service. Our technicians arrived within the hour and upon thorough inspection found that the close-limit settings needed readjusting. This safety feature of all modern overhead openers is designed to prevent the door from hitting people or vehicles. With the right adjustments made, our technicians left a happy customer with a secure and correct functioning garage door.
