If you have an automatic garage door opener, you probably also have garage door sensors. Garage door sensors are designed to prevent the door from closing on anything that might happen to under the door. This protects your family, pets, bikes and even your car. These sensors also protect the door, which can be damaged if it closes on top of something. When the sensors are not working properly, it can be a very serious problem. If your garage door sensors in Aurora, CO need repair or replacement, contact Smart Garage Door Service at (720) 340-7916. We are experts and determining what’s happening to your garage door sensors and resolving the problems.
Signs Your Garage Door Sensors Aren’t Working
You don’t want to wait until something — or worse, someone — gets crushed beneath your garage door to call for repairs on your garage sensors. Here are some subtle signs that your garage sensors are not working properly.
The Door Doesn’t Close
If your garage sensors sense that there is something obstructing the path of the door, they will not allow the door to close. Certain sensor systems won’t allow to the door to close at all, while other systems let the door start to close, but then stop it abruptly before closes all the way. If this is happening when the path between the sensors is clear, it is a sure sign you need to have your garage sensors repaired.
Most garage door sensor systems have lights that will blink to indicate that there is a problem. Sometimes they are installed near the garage door opener, and other times they are installed along the tracks that open and close the door. If you see these lights blinking, do not ignore them. Call for repairs on your garage door sensors as soon as possible.
The Door Does Close
One of the most dangerous signs that something isn’t working right with your garage door sensors is that the door closes regardless of what’s in the way. If this is happening to your garage door, don’t wait. Call our office for repairs right away.
