Why is My Garage Door Opener Not Working?

If you’ve already checked your remote’s batteries and checked the track for obstacles, you may become confused as to why your garage door opener is broken.

The most common reasons for a garage door opener to stop working are:

  • Your tension/expansion springs or cables are broken
  • Your remote or wall button are not receiving the electrical signal
  • A recent thunderstorm led to a power surge that overwhelmed your garage door opener
  • Your garage door opener reached the end of its lifespan

Fortunately, Mt Pleasant Garage Doors can help with any of these issues!

There are basically three types of cable drums for residential garage doors. The cable drums correspond to different types of garage doors: standard-lift, vertical-lift, and high-lift. Each cable drum is manufactured to help the garage door remain balanced as it opens and closes with the help of the torsion springs.

Standard-lift cable drums are flat for the most part. Toward the outside of the door, the last 3/4 of a turn or so on the grooves of the cable drum is slightly raised. This helps keep the garage door balanced as it begins to open. Standard-lift cable drums are the most used in residential garage doors in the Mt Pleasant, SC area.

Vertical-lift cable drums are taller than standard-lift drums. When the garage door is closed, the cable is farther from the shaft. As the door opens, the cable wraps up on the drum and comes closer to the shaft

High-lift cable drums have both a flat portion like the standard-lift drums and a raised portion like the vertical-lift drums. The cable runs on the raised portion while the garage door opens vertically then switches over to the flat portion when the door begins to run on the horizontal track

You have several options when selecting a new garage door opener:

Belt Drive Openers use a rubber belt to guide the trolley around the track opening and closing the garage door. They are very reliable and incredibly quiet. An ideal choice for attached garages where noise is an issue. We install all types of garage door openers, but most homeowners prefer a quieter belt drive opener more than the rest.

Chain Drive Openers are the most common garage door opener and operate similar to belt drives but with a chain that pulls and pushes the trolley. Because there is a metal chain moving along a track to open and close the garage door, it can cause these doors to be noisier than a belt driven garage door opener. However, they can often be more affordable in price. However, if your garage is near a work-from-home office or a bedroom, you may consider opting for a belt-drive model.

Screw Drive Openers are another excellent option for garage doors openers. They have the least moving pieces and can often be the more reliable choice. The motor rotates a threaded steel rod which moves the trolley along the track allowing for a simple and reliable function. Traditionally, the screw-drive openers were considered the loudest choice, but recent improvements have quieted the drive.
