A fully operational garage door secures your home against unauthorized access, and properly aligned sensors are key to reliable performance.

Maintenance Tips

We provide valuable maintenance tips to help extend the life of your garage door sensors and prevent future issues.

5 Reasons Your Garage Door Sensors Are Not Working

Sensors need to be perfectly aligned to communicate properly. Even a small shift can break the invisible beam between them, causing the door to malfunction or not operate as intended.

Accumulation of dirt, dust, or debris on the sensor lenses can obstruct the sensor beam, preventing the sensors from detecting obstructions correctly and potentially causing the door to reverse or not close.

Damage to the wires connecting sensors to the garage door opener can disrupt the signal. This could be due to wear and tear, rodent damage, or accidental cutting during home maintenance activities.

Direct sunlight on the sensor can sometimes interfere with the infrared beam, causing the sensors to malfunction. This usually results in the garage door refusing to close during certain times of the day when sunlight is strongest.

Over time, sensors can fail due to age, wear, or electrical issues. Faulty sensors may fail to detect obstructions or communicate with the garage door opener, necessitating a repair or replacement to ensure the system’s safety and functionality.

I recently had Michael come out to work on my two garage doors, and I couldn't be more pleased with the results. He installed the Chamberlain garage door openers which are working flawlessly. Michael was professional, punctual, and his workmanship was top-notch. He made sure everything was working perfectly before he left and was able to answer all my questions. I highly recommend Michael for any garage door needs—his expertise and customer service are exceptional!
