A few things you might want to know about your residential garage door opener
The door opener that raises and lowers your garage door generally employs one of two mechanisms: a metal‑reinforced rubber belt or a chain very similar to the one you'll find on your bicycle. Both systems function very well, although the chain‑driven type will require a bit more maintenance, as the chain will have to be oiled at least two times a year.
At Portes Ram Doors, LiftMaster garage door openers are our brand of choice, thanks to their high reliability and great performance. With the passing of the years, it's unlikely that you will experience anything other than minor problems with your system, usually due to some sort of misalignment or blockage in the photoelectric reversal system or to the normal wearing down of the batteries in your remote. But not to worry! Problems like these are run‑of‑the mill for our skilled technicians.
Similar to the system in an elevator door, the automatic reversal system in your garage door is a crucial safety feature that must work properly at all times. This system is composed of two parts, one mechanical, and the other photoelectric. The first mechanism automatically reopens the door when the bottom of the door encounters the resistance of an object in its path, while the second reverses the direction of the door when something or someone passes in front of the sensor beam. Both of these components should be inspected at least two times each year. It isn't enough that your garage door opener simply raises and lowers your garage door. Just as it lifts 225 lb (100 kg) every time the door opens, it has to resist that same amount of weight every time the door closes.
Another system that must work correctly at all times is the emergency release mechanism. For example, if the power goes out and your garage door opener doesn’t have an emergency back‑up battery, in order to open and close your garage door, you'll have to go inside the garage and pull the red release cord. Keeping the opener in good condition will save you a lot of headaches in an emergency.
