Two of the most important features on your home are the photo-eyes and the auto-reverse function. Both of these features are there to prevent things from getting in the way of your garage door shutting and keep your family and your things safe. The photo-eyes are on either side of the door and raised a few inches off of the ground and, if there is anything in the way, the photo-eyes will pick it up and prevent the door from closing. You can test this by placing something in the way, like a folding chair or anything else that you may have in your garage, and then trying to shut the door. If your door doesn’t close, your photo-eyes are functioning as they should.
As for the auto-reverse mechanism, you can test this in the same way. The auto-reverse function tests in the area below the photo-eyes. You can test this feature by placing something only a few inches high, like a piece of wood on the floor where your door will close. Once you try to close the door, once it comes into contact with the object, it should cause the door to reverse and go back up. If you notice an issue with either of these functions, be sure to contact our team for assistance.
Apart from testing these features, you can also perform routine checks on your garage door to ensure that all of the parts are functioning as they should. You can visually check the springs, cables, rollers, and pulleys and make sure that they don’t have any wear and tear.
By performing these simple tasks, you can keep your garage door working properly for the years to come. If you have any issues with your door, you can call our team. We are available 24/7 so you can get your door back up and running at any time. With trucks fully stocked with most parts, our professionals will have almost any repair item needed on hand.
