Do these common garage door issues sound familiar? A service technician is always available to help.
I heard a loud bang coming from my garage door?
You likely have a broken garage door spring. This is not a repair you should attempt yourself. If your garage door is heavy and can’t be lifted it is because you don’t have the spring to help counterbalance the weight. A garage door spring has a limited number of cycles (up and down) until it will break. Changes in weather can accelerate your need to replace your garage door spring.
My garage door is tilted on an angle?
There is a good chance your garage door cable is either broken or has fallen off. There are many reasons this could happen including impact or just wear and tear.
My garage door is opening halfway?
If your garage door is only opening halfway, it is possibly an issue with your electric opener. You could have an issue with the garage door limits or something unrelated.
I am locked out of my garage
If you have a vaulted garage that means there is no side entrance. You only have one way into your garage and that is through the garage door. It is important to install a lock on your door if this is your situation. Dodds technicians can always find a way into your garage.
Garage door not closing or starting to close and going back up
Garage doors not closing or starting to close and going back up is our most common phone call. The good news is this is likely the simplest issue to solve. You could have an issue with your garage door photoeyes / safety sensors. You want to make sure your photoeyes (sensors at bottom of the garage door) are clean and pointed directly at one another. You are looking for two solid green lights.
My garage door is stuck to the ground
Our Canadian climate can wreak havoc on our garage doors. Installing a new garage door can help mitigate this issue as you will be getting a thick bottom rubber that is designed to avoid freezing. That said, heavily salt the area at the bottom of your door and wait until the door unfreezes to open it.
I hear my garage door opener working but the door is not moving
Dodds can service nearly any garage door opener. It often makes sense to replace your operator as opposed to getting it serviced. If your garage door opener is making noise but the door is not moving, make sure your door is not set to manual (look at the hookup arm). You maybe also need to get your garage door gear replaced.
My garage door is making a lot of noise
Dodds recommends you lubricate and maintain your garage door. Please read our article on how to keep your garage door in great working condition. The first thing to do is lubricate your door with Jigaloo (Canadian Tire). If that doesn’t work, give Dodds a ring and book a service call.
I drove into my garage door or my garage door is dented
Dodds is happy to help you replace damaged or broken garage door sections. Make sure you get a quote for a new garage door as it may be more cost effective than replacing sections.
Garage door remotes or keypad not working
There are many online tutorials (search Youtube) that can help you program your garage door remotes and keypad. Always try replacing your batteries first.
