Garage Door Opener Repair vs Replacement

Very often when your garage door opener is not functioning properly, it can be repaired. Diagnosing and repairing your existing motor may be a less expensive option than replacing the entire unit. We often recommend repair over replacement for this reason. We always maintain a full inventory of garage door opener parts on our trucks, so we can ordinarily repair it in a single visit.

Garage door openers, like most other technologies today, are changing rapidly to include features that make your life easier and more secure. You can count on your Precision Door Technician to expertly inform you about the newest garage door openers and accessories available!

When We Recommend Replacement

Non-Compliant Openers

Federal Regulations (UL 325) were updated in 1993, which made garage door openers safer. If yours was manufactured prior to that date, it is unlikely your house would even pass an inspection with it. So, we recommend to replace in this situation.

Safety Concerns with a Brand

If a manufacturer has been successfully sued for safety defects, we will not repair that model.

No Safety Eyes

If the safety eyes are not present, the opener does not meet UL 325 compliance. Again, your house would be unlikely to pass an inspection if your garage door has no safety eyes.Therefore, we will typically recommend replacement.

Brand No Longer Exists

Parts for these types openers will be unavailable and replacing is usually the only option.

Why Do Garage Door Openers Fail?

Precision always performs a balance test on your door, as recommended by DASMA. The balance test is simple and you can do it yourself by watching the short video below. This test determines whether your door is out of balance or not. If the door is not balanced, it’ll exert an inordinate amount of stress on the opener and strip the garage door opener gear (a new gear is pictured below).

A common cause of an unbalanced garage door is having the wrong size spring(s) on the door. If the door is heavy, the opener sprocket (pictured), can be stripped. Precision will always let you know if this is a potential problem by doing a balance test. Do not hesitate to call us today at any of our locations to learn more about our openers. We will be happy to answer any further questions.
