Photo Eyes Test
The photo eyes function to alert you when anything is in the way of your garage door closing so it is imperative that they are always functioning. To test this feature, you will simply place an object in the path of the garage door and then try to close the door. Once the photo eyes detect the object, it will stop closing. If the photo eyes pass the test, then you can rest assured that anything in the door’s path will remain safe. If the photo eyes fail, you can contact one of our team members and we will promptly repair whatever may be wrong.
Another way that you can keep your door in top shape is with routine inspections. You’ll want to check on things like the pulleys, springs, rollers, and cables to see if there is any wear and tear on these items. If you notice anything wrong with any of these features, you’ll want to contact someone from our team as soon as possible. These features are typically under high pressure and should only be fixed or replaced by one of our technicians.
With this test, you will be testing the feature that kicks in if the photo eyes happen to fail. You can test this feature by placing something beneath the zone that the photo eyes cover, like a 2x4 piece of wood, and try to close your door. Once the door comes into contact with the obstruction, it should begin to once again open. If that happens, your door is functioning properly, but if it does not open again, you need to contact someone from our team as soon as you can.
With these tips and the help of our Glenpool garage door maintenance, your door will easily withstand the test of time. Contact us at Overhead Door Tulsa today for more information!
