How to Fix a Noisy Garage Door?

How to Fix a Noisy Garage Door

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]There was a time when people had to get out of their cars and use their muscles to lift their garage door. Thankfully, those days are long gone. Nowadays, most homeowners have the option to mechanise their garage doors. And with a nifty remote control, they can open their door without having to exit their car.

The remote control has a radio frequency that delivers a signal to your garage door openers receiver. Both devices are within the same frequency, allowing them to communicate with each other. So, with the mere press of a button, you can set your garage door in motion. Indeed, the functionality and convenience that this little gadget brings are tremendous. You might even realise how indispensable it is when it stops working properly.

Now, you might wonder if it is time for you to get a new garage door remote control. Well, the answer varies depending on the situation. In some cases, you may need to purchase a new one. However, there are some instances wherein you’ll only need to perform simple troubleshooting steps to get the device working again. In this article, we will discuss if it is time for you to shop for the best garage door remotes Perth has available. 

 

Check the Batteries

In most cases, a garage door remote control stops functioning because it has run out of batteries. So, you should take a set of fresh batteries and replace the old ones. If you need to go to the store to purchase batteries, make sure you take the old ones with you. Doing so will ensure that you can get the right type of batteries. While you’re at it, you should consider buying high-quality batteries. After all, they tend to last longer.

 

Check the Contacts

You should also check the battery component to see if there are issues with the contacts. If you notice that they are dirty, worn out or wet, then they could be behind the problem. Before you put the batteries in the compartment, make sure that you clean and dry the contacts thoroughly. After inspecting the contacts, check if the remote is working properly.

If your device is not working, try to use your spare remotes. If the other remotes are working, then you’ve concluded that there’s a battery issue with your gadget. However, if none of the remotes function, then you might be dealing with a bigger problem.

 

Check the Transmitter and the Receiver

You should also check if something is coming into conflict with the receiver. Make sure that you clear the path to enable better communication between your remote and the receiver. While you’re checking the receiver, you should inspect the antenna (if your unit has one). The antenna may be hanging straight down, causing problems in signal transmission. In some cases, adjusting the antenna can be enough to fix the issue.

 

Check if You Need a Reset

Have you tried the troubleshooting steps, yet none of them got your garage door remote working again? If that is the case, then you might need to reset the opener and the receiver. These devices are like small computers that require a reboot from time to time. We suggest removing the batteries from your remote for about a minute. Unplug the receiver for the same amount of time. Doing so will reset the circuit boards, allowing the remote to start working again.

Has your garage door been a little hard on the ears lately? A noisy garage door can certainly compromise all the peace and quiet present in your neighbourhood. Needless to say, you might want to think about having the issue resolved before you have any angry neighbours come knocking on your door. Your garage doors may squeak, clatter or rattle due to a number of reasons. Thankfully however, there are some steps you can take that may help to successfully combat the problem.

 

So, do you want to learn how to fix a noisy garage door? Then just keep on reading, and we’ll help you discover the answer.

 

What Steps Can You Perform?

 

Lubricate

A potential cause may be that some of the components of your garage door require lubricating. Springs, rollers and hinges all require adequate lubrication, or else they may cause damage to each other over time. Use a metal-appropriate lubricant to spray on and around these parts. Performing this step every couple of months may be enough to ensure your garage door’s silence during operation.

 

Inspect the Rollers

Your garage door rollers are wheels that run along metal tracks on the sides of your garage door. Rollers can make a lot of noise if not lubricated sufficiently; however, if lubricating these parts fails to fix your noisy garage door, it may be best to invest in a different type of roller. Nylon rollers are the quieter alternative to most rollers, although they may be a little more costly.

 

Check the Hinges

Worn out garage door hinges may also be the cause of your concerns. Give these components an inspection to determine whether they’re bent, broken or rusty. If the aforementioned appears to be the case, then you may want to consider getting a replacement; not only to eradicate the noise, but also to ensure your own safety.

 

Why You Should Turn to a Professional

You may have heard it time and time again, however turning to a professional is probably one of the best things you can do should you experience any issues with your garage door. Most often, homeowners lack the necessary tools and expertise required to successfully repair their roller doors. As such, attempting to fix such issues could just result in a further mess. You may be subjected to more expensive repairs in this case.

Absolutely can not recommend these guys enough! My garage door completely died with no warning and no function at all! On a weekend! Hubby works away, leaving me and the little one alone most of the time and I was not safe with a non functioning garage door. Within just a few hours, Tony arranged ?Drew? To come out and replace the dead motor, key all the remotes (including an extra one!) In lightning speed, with 100% professionalism, excellent workmanship, a demo and explanation of how to use all the buttons including how to operate in a power outage. If you need high quality products, excellent workmanship and friendly customer service, do not look any further!

I cannot recommend Professional Garage Door Services enough – with Ryan being everything you could want in a tradesperson. When my garage door opener appeared to have died, I called a couple of companies & was given simply a replacement cost. However when I called & spoke with Ryan, he spent 10 minutes talking me through different ways to check if it was indeed a problem with the opener & not an electrical issue within or around my house. Who does that?!There was absolute transparency about the installation process and cost & everything was delivered as discussed. To put it simply – Ryan’s just really good at his job! so if, like me, you’re hit with an unexpected repair or replacement of your garage door opener, my advice would be to just call PGDS – you won’t need to make a second call.
