Before you do any garage door opener repairs, make sure that your door is turned off.

If you are trying to do the garage door opener repair on your own, there are a few things that you need to know before you get started. You need to make sure that your power is off, as well as, any other electrical connections. You also need to have basic tools that you can get at your local hardware store, such as an adjustable wrench, screwdriver, and a drill gun.

The most common problem is that the cables inside your system are frayed. This means that there is friction between the opener and the motor, which are causing your system to trip.

However, if you try to save money and attempt a do-it-yourself job, you might end up doing more damage than good.
Another common problem is broken torsion springs in your system. Springs help the door go up and down by pushing the two metal tension bands along the track. If you find that one of the springs is broken, you should be able to replace it with another spring from your manufacturer. Garage door openers need to have at least two springs, but two springs are usually better than one.
Garage door repairs for broken torsion springs can be tricky, because if you start to feel like the springs are starting to pop out of the track, you should stop the repair and wait for them to straighten out. Garage door openers are designed to open and close with the assistance of two metal coils, which are located above and below the track. If the two springs are broken, the opener will not function correctly, so you should immediately call a repairman. Garage door openers need to have their springs replaced every few years, so you will want to find a company that offers maintenance as well as garage door repairs.
One of the most annoying things we have to deal with is having to call a garage door repairman when our remote control has gone dead, or the batteries in the remote control have run out.

Many times, garage doors will simply need to be replaced, because they are old and no longer performing as they should.
