After years of receiving countless calls for garage door opener repairs, it’s safe to say that most repairs end up being fixed by realigning the photo eyes or replacing worn gears found within the garage opener itself.

One of the major concerns regarding garage openers and garage doors, in general, is the importance of being safety compliant. We make sure that there is no danger to anyone by running tests on all mechanisms to ensure everything is working as expected. There are a number of key elements that need to be tested in order to ensure you meet safety requirements:
Make sure you have photo eyes installed properly near the bottom of each side of your garage door. These are sensors made to stop the garage door in case an object or person is detected. These sensors need to be mounted no higher than 6 inches above the ground. If you do not have photo eyes installed, it is strongly recommended you get these installed right away. Nowadays these come standard with any garage opener.
Once you have located your photo eyes, test that they work by closing the garage door while blocking the sensors. If the photo eyes are working properly the door will come to a halt.
Last but not least, place anything on the floor where the garage door closes that is no more than an inch and a half and press the close button. Once the door reaches this object it should automatically reverse back.
