Who need a motorized garage door?
Not every garage door equipped with a garage door opener. Those who does not use an automated garage door, are usually those who doesn’t use the garage door often, and probably do not park their car inside the garage, so they prefer to open and close the door manually.
But if you do open and close the garage door often, and you never had a new motor installed, you should consider installing one. Just imagine that every time when you are arriving home with your car, you do not need to get out of the car, open the door of the garage, get back in the car, park the car, and then close the door… Sound exhausting? Well, it is. So what are you waiting for? Stop working hard and enjoy the advantaged of a motorized Overhead door.
What type of opener do I need?
There are many garage door motors in the market, and each one can find the right motor for him. From heavy duty chain drive motor, to a ½ H.P silent belt drive motor, you can find the motor that will make your life easier.
The three most common kinds of garage door motors that you can find in the market today are the following:
- Chain drive motor: This motor is the most common motor you can find today in the American market. And there is a big chance that your neighbor’s garage door is equipped with a chain drive opener, which considered to be one of the most reliable Overhead door opener you can find today.
- Belt drive motor: Just like the chain drive motor, but in this kind of opener, instead of the chain drive, you will find a belt drive. This motor is a bit more expensive than the chain drive, but the advantage of it is a silent operation, since the noise of the chain which move along the rail is replaced with a rubber belt. If your garage door located above the bedroom, or the living room, or if it is important for you to have a silent operation motor, the Belt Drive opener will be perfect for you.
- Screw drive motor: This opener used to be very popular, but lately you will find less and less from it in Woodland Hills. You should consider purchasing this opener if you are planning to “do it yourself” and you are not sure what exactly to do, since this motor is the easiest to install and program.
Safety sensors Repairs Woodland Hills
In order for the garage door to work properly, the safety sensors must face each other. If one of them was accidently moved, damaged, or the wire which connect it to the motor was cut, the door will not close. You will see the door “trying” to close, and then stop and reverse to open position, followed by the opener light signaling you that something is wrong. We are receiving many calls from our garage door customers in Woodland Hills, which complain that their garage door is not closing all the way, or not closing at all. Sometime you may be able to repair the problem by yourself, but sometime they you are going to need us to come and fix it for them.
Removing the safety sensors is dangerous!!
If there is a problem with your safety sensors, do not try and remove them, or use a solution that will allow the door to work without the safety sensors. Using an electric garage door with no safety sensors, whether it is a garage door in Hermosa Beach California, or a garage door in Woodland Hills is illegal, since it put you, and you family at risk of getting injured.

Overhead door opener and safety
We would like to make one thing clear: A garage door which isn’t working properly, no matter if the reason is a broken motor, a broken spring, out of track, or any other garage door issue, should not be used, and should be repaired by a trained garage door repairman. The garage door sensors are there for a reason, and it is to protect you, or any other person, pet or object which may be in the Overhead door path while it is in movement and closing. The safety sensors will “tell” the motor that there is something in the way, and the door will reverse to open position, and by that prevent the object from being hit by the closing door.
Is it really an opener problem?
If your opener cannot open the door, or if it is shaking, making noises, or any other reason that make the opener behave in a way that indicate that something is wrong, you have a problem. But it does not mean that the opener is the cause.
To understand that, you need to understand that mechanism of the overhead door, and the way it is working. When you look at your door, it seem like the opener is what lift it and close, but that is partly true. The opener is doing only a small part of that, while the spring system is what do the rest. SO when there is a problem with the mechanism, it may seem to you like there is a problem with the opener, when it is actually a mechanism problem such as a snapped spring, a torn cable. Broken pulley, or any other reason that prevent the door from working.
If you garage door is not working smoothly manually – when the opener is disengage – there is a problem that need to be fixed, and you shouldn’t use the opener or the door before it will be repaired.
