Hardware Care


Garage Door Opener Maintenance in TacomaThis service ranges from checking for damage and testing to cleaning and lubrication.

Drive


A drive belt may require only cleaning, if it is dirty. If the opener uses a chain or a metal rod (screw drive units), it will need to be lubricated as well. Lubricants which are especially designed for openers and contain lithium are the best choice.

Rail and Trolley


The rail should be checked for bending and loose bolts. If the trolley is worn or damaged, it should be replaced. The sections where the trolley gets into contact with the rail require lubrication.

Release Handle


It should be easy to pull. It must disconnect the garage door from the opener immediately. If it doesn’t work properly, it should be fixed or replaced.

Brackets


These hold the motor unit in place and need full inspection for damage. Loose bolts, bending and rugs are all serious problems which require immediate solution.

Safety Sensors


These small devices sit on the sides of the door, some six inches above the floor. They have been mandatory opener accessories since the introduction of the UL 325 standard.

Inspection


Both the sensors and their wiring should be checked for damage. If the wiring has cuts or twists which are impossible to straighten, it will need replacement.

Maintenance


It involves wiping the sensors clean with soft cloth which is dry or just slightly damp. The second step is alignment. The photo eyes must be exactly opposite each other to work properly.

Testing


It starts with opening the door and placing a solid object in front of one of the sensors. The object must block it completely. Upon pressing the remote control button, the door must stay in place. If it starts going down normally, the safety sensors should be repaired or replaced.

Motor Unit


This unit holds the motor and the hardware connecting it to the drive plus the circuit board and lights.

Checkup


Visual inspection will reveal physical damage to the unit. It’s highly unlikely due to the strong plastic casing.

Force Testing


It involves placing wood plank on the floor under the safety sensors while the garage door is opened. When the door closes, it should touch the plank and reverse. If it hits the plank hard, the closing force has to be reduced using the dial at the back of the motor unit.

Controls


These require maintenance to work properly for longer.


Remotes


The casing, buttons and battery compartment need cleaning with a bit of alcohol. If necessary, the batteries should be replaced.

Wireless Keypad


Since the keypad is mounted outside, it will need more thorough cleaning. Any gunk around the buttons should be removed gently without the use of sharp metal tools. The keypad may also need new batteries.

Wall Panel


It is important to check the wiring as well as the casing and buttons for damage in the first place. The panel will require full cleaning.
