A commercial overhead door, whether it is in Norco, or a commercial garage door in Norco, can some be used more than 3,000 times a year. And to think that such a door doesn’t not need a strong and reliable motor, and trying to install a motor which is too small or too weak for the door will be a mistake. It can be easier to try and save money by installing a cheap opener that may work well for few months or even couple of years. But when the motor will stop working, and you will have to contact someone who repair garage doors Norco to come and repair or even replace the motor, you may learn the hard way that it is better to invest in quality, than to buy cheap parts that eventually will cost you more. A commercial motor should be strong, reliable and from a leading and reliable motor manufacture such as Lift master. And when you invest in quality, you will find that the door will open and close whenever you will need it to.If you think about it, your garage door is probably the largest moving object in your house, and as such, it can be dangerous when it is being used in a wrong way. We are used to a garage door which open and close whenever we need it to, and which work in a perfect way. We believe that every garage door should work like that, and with the proper maintenance, there is no reason why it shouldn’t. But, and this is the important part about the garage door safety, if there is something wrong with the way your garage door is working, or if your garage door is making strange noises, or if the garage door is not working in the smooth way it used to work, you better contact a garage door company in Norco, to come and inspect the door.Many times, the repair is basic, such a broken sensor, or a garage door which need to be lubricated, but not once, the problem is much more serious such as a broken spring or a snapped cable, and the require a bigger repair, but more important – can be dangerous, and we would like to explain.If your garage door was hit by a car, which can lead to a broken panel or an out of track garage door, we recommend you to avoid trying to use the garage door, and to contact a garage door technician. Even if it seem to you, that all you need to do is to push the garage door back on track, we advise you not to. When a garage door is being hit by a car, it can affect many parts in the garage door mechanism, which can lead to a damage that can only be detected by a trained garage door repairman.If your garage door started making noises whenever you use it, it probably mean that you ignored the need for maintenance, and did not lubricate your garage door for a long time. But it can also mean that there is a bigger damage (such as broken spring, pulley, roller, or any other problem). But although the garage door is making noises just for lack of maintenance, we recommend you to face the problem and contact a garage door contractor which will come and repair it. From our experience, ignoring a problem does not make it go away, but only lead to a bigger problem and a repair which will cost more.We would like to say it clearly: Using a garage door with a broken spring is not safe, and can lead to a bigger damage, but above that, it can be deadly. The garage door spring is the force which make it easy to open the door, and which balance and protect the garage door from crashing when it is closing. When the spring break, the garage door can be too heavy for one spring, which now carrying a double weight, and in case it will also break, there won’t be anything to hold the door from crashing into the ground. If your garage door spring broke, no matter if it is a garage door Norco, or a garage door Norco, stop using the garage door, and contact a garage door repairman to come and fix or replace the broken spring.If your garage door is equipped with extension spring system, it should also include safety cables. If you are not sure if there are such cables installed in your springs, go to your garage door and look at the springs. If you do have safety cables installed, you should see a metal wire which is threaded from one side of the spring, and coming out from the other side (do not mistake to think the cables which are connected to the pulleys as safety cables). The safety cables are not essential for the garage door to work properly, but they are essential for a safe use of the garage door. The safety cables are installed in case one of the springs will break, and they will protect the door, the people or any other object in your garage from getting hurt by the broken spring.When it comes to garage door motor safety, the answer is very simple – It is a federal law, that every motorized garage door should include safety feature (such as the safety sensors), which protect objects or people in case the will be located at the door’s path while it is moving.If you own an automated garage door, you will notice the safety sensors installed on each side of the garage door, close to the ground. The safety sensors should face each other, and should signal the garage door motor, in case something or someone will be located at the garage door path while it is closing. When something is located at the garage door path, the garage door opener will stop the moving door, and reverse it, and by doing that, it will protect the object from being hit by the garage door.

Whether it is an automated garage door Norco, or a garage door in Norco, there is a big chance that the garage door is equipped with a chain drive opener, which consider to be one of the most reliable garage door motor you can find today.Belt drive motor: Just like the chain drive motor, but in this kind of opener, instead of the chain drive, you will find a belt drive. This motor is a bit more expensive than the chain drive, but the advantage of it is a silent operation, since the noise of the chain which move along the railis replaced with a rubber belt.

To read more about the garage door motor, click here for garage door opener Norco, or here, for Lift Master Motors.If you are thinking to install the motor by yourself, or if you are planning to contact a garage door company in Brooklyn, there is one thing you should know and follow, since it is the law: Every motorized garage door, whether it was installed in Norco or it is a garage door Norco,must include a safety feature which will protect the door or an object that cross the door’s path while it is closing. Again, this is not an option, it’s the law! The most common safety feature you can find in every automated garage door is the safety sensors. The safety sensors are there to protect from the object which cross the door path while the door is closing from being crashed under the garage door, and reverse the closing motor to open the door.The safety sensors must face each other, if one of them was accidently moved, damaged, or the wire which connect it to the motor was cut, the door will not close. You will see the door “trying” to close, and then stop and reverse to open position, followed by the opener light signaling youthat something is wrong. We get many calls from our garage door customers in Norco, which complain that their garage door is not closing. Many time they can repair the problem by themselves but sometime they need us to come and fix it for them.Before we explain about garage door troubleshooting, we would like to make one thing clear: A garage door which isn’t working properly, no matter if the reason is a broken motor, a broken spring, or any other garage door issue, and no matter if it is a garage door in Norco or in Norco, should not be used, and should be repaired by a professional garage door contractor.Now that we made the safety part clear, we would like to go over a common problems that we often face during our garage door service in Norco: Many times, it looks like the door is too heavy for the motor, and seem like the motor does not have enough power to open and close the door. Now, it may be possible that the problem is indeed a motor problem, but not once, when we arrive at the customers house, we find that the problem is surprisingly (or not) a broken spring. Now, since the springs are doing most of the garage door lifting job, when one or both springs break, the motor need to do much more lifting, and that what make it seem like the problem is actually a motor problem.

The second stage development of the electric garage door opener system was forced onto the market because too many garage door openers operated on the same radio frequency. To rectify the problem, a more advanced (and more secure) method of opening garage doors was developed. Systems now allowed a garage door owner to preset a “code.” This code consisted of about 8 to 10 dip switches on the receiver and corresponding transmitter.
