With the help of these maintenance tips and our Bixby garage door maintenance team, your new garage door will stand the test of time.
#1 Test the Auto-Reverse Feature
This feature is key in keeping your garage door functioning in the safest way possible. The auto-reverse feature ensures that the garage door’s path is clear when shutting so that nothing gets in the way or gets damaged. You can test this by placing a small block of wood in the garage door’s path and try closing it, once the door makes contact with the wood, the auto-reverse function should kick in and the door should stop closing and begin to raise.
#2 Test the Photo Eyes
The photo eyes are also important in keeping everything and everyone safe while your garage door is shutting. The photo eyes should function before the auto-reverse kicks in and these also help with the alignment of your garage door. This system also detects obstructions but they are usually situated a few feet above the ground to detect objects before the auto-reverse feature is necessary.
#3 Visual Inspection
Whether you consider yourself handy or not, a visual inspection is a maintenance technique that everyone can perform. While inspecting, you’ll want to take a look at the cables, rollers, and pulleys and just inspect for general wear and tear. If anything looks off with these features be sure to contact a professional for further instruction.
If any of these functions are not performing as they should, you can contact our repair team at any time. Our team is on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week so they are always available to repair your garage.
