Q: Why won't my garage door open?
A: It probably has a broken spring.
Q: Why won't my garage door close?
A: The most common cause of garage doors not closing, or only closing part way and then reversing, is misaligned safety eyes. Your safety eyes have lights on them that indicate weather they are properly aligned or not--they should be glowing bright and steady, with no flickering or blinking.
If the safety eyes are just barely lined up, they may let the door close sometimes, and cause it to reverse other times, seemingly at random.
Bright, direct sunlight can also cause safety eyes to prevent your door from closing.
Q: Can I fix my garage door myself?
A: No! Garage doors have parts under extreme tension, and are much heavier than most people think. Loosening the wrong part or making the wrong adjustment can result in injury or death.
Q: How long do springs last?
A: Beez carries 20,000 cycle springs(a cycle being one time up and down), but most garage door companies carry 10,000 cycle springs.
Q: Can my garage door be made quieter?
A: Yes! As far as the garage door is concerned, new rollers and bearings, along with lubrication, can make a difference. Usually, most of the noise comes from the garage door opener. Belt drive openers are so quiet that often times they cannot be heard in the house.
