  • Are your Sensors Working Properly?

The sensors are among the most important elements of your garage door and if they aren’t working properly, your door will likely not open. If your garage door is opening and shutting in an irregular manner, your sensors may need to be cleaned or realigned. We also suggest clearing clutter from around the sensors. If an item is in the way of the door, the sensors will prevent the door from closing.
