    Garage door not opening.

    Post  1275min on Sat Feb 09, 2013 5:04 am

    Hi All,

    I am a sparky by trade but I have an issue with my dads garage door.

    Ok so it opens a to about quarter of the way up then stops. If u press open again it goes up a few turns and then comes back down to the position it stopped at the first time. If u wind it up manually it comes down on the motor fine.

    There is no beam but there is a pressure strip on the bottom. There are also a grey long panel that is screwed to the door with 3round batteries in which I have replaced and a grey square on the frame that lines up with this. I'm not to sure what this bit is? Could it be to link it to the alarm system maybe??

    I can only think to replace the control panel but I'm not 100% this will solve the issue and I don't want to spend money if it's not required. It's an older door sws I think it has a light on the panel which flashes green Amber and red. The sequence of colours is a trouble shooter in the manual but if otter says different things ie different sequence of lights flashing?

    Any help and advice would be great!!

    Garage Doors are fine as far as they work in a good way but when they are not working well it is mess then. The issue you have defined here is can not be done by yourself you need to consult with a garage door professional i must say.

    Am not a garage door expert but i have experiencing similar issue that the person above has... what i did is to reset the program or better ask your nearest garage door specialist for support.
