Garage Door Gear Repair

call us now for fix and repair

Gear problems are among the most common issues faced with garage doors. Fortunately, they are relatively easy to fix. This usually indicates that the main drive gear has failed. The main drive gear, often made of plastic, interacts directly with the motor’s drive gear.

By addressing these issues promptly, you can ensure smooth and efficient garage door operation.

Remove retaining screws from the cover and shine the flashlight directly at the gear set. If the gears have screwed up teeth, it’s likely that you can just replace them and that will solve the problem. If not, your opener might simply be shot and you’ll need a new one.

Make sure to write down the make, model and serial number of your opener. You can find all of the information on the back of the opener.

Understanding Garage Door Gears

Garage door gears are integral parts of the opener mechanism. They work in conjunction with other components, like the motor and chain or belt, to raise and lower the door smoothly. Common signs of gear problems include grinding noises, jerky movements, or the door not opening or closing properly.

Why Gear Repair is Important

Ignoring gear issues can lead to more severe problems and potentially cause the entire garage door system to fail. Timely repair or replacement of the gears ensures:

  1. Smooth Operation: Repaired gears ensure the door opens and closes without jerks or stalls.
  2. Increased Longevity: Proper maintenance and timely repairs extend the life of your garage door opener.
  3. Safety: A malfunctioning garage door can pose a safety risk. Ensuring gears are in good condition helps prevent accidents.
