Why Is My Garage Door Not Closing?

There can be several reasons why your garage door is not closing. Here is a list of the most common problems that can prevent your garage door from operating properly:

  • Trolley Issues – Trolley mechanisms connect the garage door opener to the garage door. The door will not close properly using the opener if it is in bypass mode.
  • Sensor Problems – In addition, the door will not close properly if safety sensors are dirty, out of alignment, or blocked by an obstruction.
  • Rollers and Tracks – Damage, dirt, or obstructions to tracks or rollers can also be the reasons why your garage door will not close.
  • Garage Door Remotes – A power surge or dead batteries can cause your garage door remote controls to lose programming or fail to work.

Crawford and Brinkman technicians can provide a thorough inspection of your garage door system to find out why your garage door will not close. Plus, we provide garage door spring replacement if your garage door will not open. Count on our garage door repairman whenever you have issues getting your garage door to close.

When Should I Call a Garage Door Repairman?

There are plenty of issues with your garage door that are not safe to work on by yourself. This can include your garage door not closing if you have already checked sensors, trolleys, tracks and rollers, and the remote control. Here are some repairs you should leave to the professional technicians from Crawford and Brinkman:

  • Garage Door Spring Replacement – Replacing garage door springs can cause serious injury if not handled properly because they are under high tension.
  • Door Openers – Electrical work comes with a high risk of electrocution if you are not familiar with electrical systems. If your garage door opener requires repair, you should let a professional handle repair due to the electrocution risk.
  • Cable Replacement – Like with springs, cables are also under high tension and can cause serious injury if they are not handled cautiously.
  • Garage Door Panel Replacement – Without experience and the right tools, replacing and aligning garage door panels comes with injury risk due to heavy lifting.
