Need Emergency Garage Door Repair? Don’t Panic!

Posted on: August 13, 2014

Emergency garage door repairs may seem silly, until the morning of your big meeting in St. Petersburg, and your door won’t open, potentially leaving your car stuck at home and you walking to the office. These doors are unique and complex mechanisms, so before you get too frustrated, take a look at it and see if it is a simple fix.

Is there power supplied to the outlet?

This is the simplest of problems one could have but it is probably one of the most overlooked. All you need to do it make sure that your motor is connected to a working plug. If that plug has suddenly stopped working, check your circuit breaker, or fuse box to see if a fuse has been blown.

Is your torsion spring broken?

The torsion spring is the spring that helps lifts your garage door, and it has a life expectancy. When that expectancy comes to an end, this spring can snap. If this is the case do not open your door, as this is a very dangerous situation. If you suspect this is what has happened, call for emergency garage door repair immediately.

Did your keyless remote stop working?

Let’s be honest, we get pretty attached to our keyless remotes, they are just so convenient. Nothing is more frustrating than coming home, car full of groceries, and your remote has stopped working. If something like this occurs and the button on your wall still works, check the batteries in your remote. If it isn’t as easy as just changing the batteries you may have to reprogram your keypad/remote unfortunately if none of those options work, you may be in need of a replacement.
