Why is My Garage Door Stuck Shut?

As an established Bay Area garage door company, we have seen and successfully fixed every type of problem. There are many reasons why your garage door won’t open:

  • Broken torsion spring: This is extremely dangerous, as the springs and cables support your garage door. Do not attempt to inspect, repair or replace torsion springs yourself. In addition to the risk of injury, a lack of experience and inappropriate tools could result in damage to your garage door system.
  • Damaged track: One of the most common reasons formal function and a safety hazard, you should never try to fix this problem yourself. Call a professional to replace the garage door track and ensure it is done correctly.
  • Damaged photo-eye: The photo-eye shoots a laser to open and close your garage door. If this is dirty, damaged or misaligned, your door might not open or shut.
  • Garage door motor is not working: Sometimes accompanied by a humming or grinding sound, a malfunctioning door motor could be responsible for it not opening at all, or getting stuck. This might be caused by a faulty wall switch or remote, a problem with the motor itself, its chain, trolley carriage or sensor.
