BROKEN SPRING REPAIR
Door springs are utilized to close and open a garage door. The extension spring and the twist spring are the two basic spring types. Even though both springs are dangerous, torsion springs are trickier to deal with and more dangerous than expansion springs. Extension springs are used especially for lighter garage doors, like one-piece tilt-up and sectional doors. They hang from the crest of the doorway and are attached near the rear of the upper tracks. If you wish to install or repair your garage door, you may DIY. Extension springs are very dangerous so if you’re not conscious and follow the repair instructions injuries may occur.
Torsion springs are utilized for heavier doors, like sectional doors. An expert must install or repair your garage if it uses torsion springs. Garage doors which use torsion springs can be quite difficult to handle. They usually weigh anywhere between 300-400 lbs, so the springs can be strong enough to close and open the door. These springs have caused severe head trauma to even professionals when they’re being installed or repaired. If you have kids, educate them to never stand beneath the garage door when it is opening or closing. No matter how much you educate them, little kids want to push the button that opens/closes the garage out of curiosity. You must install the buttons that close and open the door out of reach of young kids.
This should prevent most accidents caused by the garage door or even the door springs themselves. Even the very best maintained garage door springs will have to be repaired because of wear and tear. In order to prevent serious repairs, it is advised to perform regular check-ups on your springs.
SPRING REPAIR HIGHLIGHTS
Spring replacements are dangerous because when installing the new springs, they are placed under extreme tension. Without the proper tools and training, the property can be damaged and more importantly, serious personal injury can occur. Continuing to operate your door with a broken spring is very dangerous and can cause additional damage to the garage door and electric opener systems.
EXPECTED LIFESPAN OF YOUR GARAGE DOOR SPRING
Garage door springs have a limited lifespan. This lifespan is measured in cycles, with the door going up and coming back down counting as one cycle. While there are various lifespan options, most common garage door springs come with a 10,000-cycle life expectancy. Your spring replacement frequency will be determined by your garage door usage.
LIFE EXPECTANCY SPRING DETERMINED BY DAILY USE:
2 times daily = about 14 years
4 times daily = about 7 years
6 times daily = about 5 years
8 times daily = about 3 years
NOISY GARAGE DOOR REPAIR
A noisy garage door is a pain that may wake you up during the night if another person in the family comes in late. While there are several garage door opener models which are substantially more quiet than others, we can make your present garage door opener quieter with a repair. Simply call The Up and Up Garage Doors for an assessment on your noisy garage door.
WHAT CAUSES GARAGE DOOR OPENER NOISE?
What are the causes of Garage Door opener sounds? Oscillation can transport throughout the steel construction of the opener resulting in a noisy garage door. The door itself may vibrate as it opens. Additionally, the motor might continue to grind even with the doors up.
LET THE UP & UP GARAGE DOORS RESOLVE YOUR PROBLEM
Your local Austin tech might approach the issue in several manners. He may perform one of the following:
- Replace the primary gear drive on your opener motor which can be a comparatively low-cost fix.
- Tighten bolts along with other hardware.
- Add a rubber padding between the motor mounts in the roof that may dampen the noise.
- Replace the rollers that traverse the track with plastic or rubber models.
- Fix and the slack on the chain in the drive path and lubricate the path.
- Replace distressed hinges.
THE ULTIMATE SOLUTION – A NEW OPENER
While your trouble may be minimized by these options, the best method to reduce noise is by updating an older model of door opener with a fresh belt drive operator. This kind of opener uses a more quiet rubber belt instead of a chain, which makes them quieter. The difference can be only $100 or so while belt driven alternatives are more costly than chain-driven models.
BROKEN GARAGE DOOR SENSOR REPAIR
With kids in and out for basketball practice, endless strands of Christmas lights and cords, and the dog running in and out of the garage, your garage door sensors can get knocked around pretty easily. The good news is that they’re also easy to put back in place. We found a great step-by-step way to check and see if your garage door won’t close because of a sensor error.
First off, your sensors just may need to be cleaned off, so try to gently remove any dust or dirt first and see if that works. If that doesn’t work, it could be electrical. The sensors have to be aligned with each other and also have to be connected correctly to the garage door system in order to work. According to LiftMaster, issues with the safety sensor wiring typically occur because of a poor connection, incorrectly connected wires, or a short in the wire from a staple.
SENSORS CAN STILL MALFUNCTION
Aside from the technology that is incorporated, detectors can still get out of alignment, which indicates they might either cause the door to refuse to shut the door even when the path is clear, to shut when it shouldn’t, or make it cease at random. Any of those conditions suggests a malfunction with the detectors. That malfunction needs to be repaired, given the security risk included.
TROUBLESHOOTING SENSOR PROBLEMS
A visit from The Up and Up Garage Doors can troubleshoot the likely reasons for detector malfunction, which can result from random obstacles. While you may be able to see something big from keeping your door from closing, something as little as a branch, a leaf, or debris on the detector lens itself can activate the detector and stop regular functioning.
DAMAGE TO THE PHOTO EYE
High levels of humidity or hitting the detector with your body, your vehicle, or a trashcan can damage the picture eye to the stage where it should be replaced.
As a result of connection issues with the cables that link Light-emitting diode lights to the detector interfaces, the detector lights supply or might flash different color lights that signal improper wiring. There may also be an electric issue within your circuit board.

OUTDOOR KEYPAD SOLUTIONS
You’ve most likely seen a keypad on someone’s garage door—neighbor’s, friend’s or family member’s. They are usually installed right outside of the garage, by the door. Keyless entry allows you to open and close your garage door by simply typing in a code that you yourself set (and it’s simple to reset as well if it is ever necessary to do so). As the name suggests, no keys are required. It doesn’t get more convenient than that!

- Allow for multiple access. If you need a trusted babysitter or anyone else to get into your home without a key, a garage door keypad is a viable solution.

SCREW DRIVEN OPENERS
The cheapest type of opener on the market, a screw driven opener uses a lifting device that runs on a threaded steel rod instead of a chain or rubber belt. These garage door openers tend to be slower and a bit noisy. They are most reliable in areas where the weather and temperature are consistent all year long.
DIRECT DRIVE OPENERS
The most expensive and quietest of openers, direct drive models use a motor that travels along a stationary chain. It is slower than belt or chain models, but they are so reliable, that they often come with a long or even lifetime warranty.
