Signs You Need Garage Door Sensor Repair

It’s important to recognize the early signs of garage door sensor issues to prevent potential accidents and ensure the seamless operation of your garage door. Here are some indicators that your garage door sensors might need attention:

  • Obstructed Path: Objects blocking the sensors’ infrared beam can prevent the door from closing.
  • Dirty Lenses: Accumulation of dirt on the sensor lenses may disrupt the sensor function.
  • Misalignment: Sensors that are not facing each other can cause malfunction.
  • Wear and Tear: Normal wear or damage to sensor wires can affect performance.

Understanding these risks and signs is crucial for maintaining the safety and functionality of your garage door.

The Problem with Garage Door Sensors

Garage door sensors play a crucial role in the safety mechanism of automatic garage doors. They detect obstructions, preventing the door from closing on objects, pets, or people. When sensors malfunction due to alignment issues, dirty lenses, or wiring problems, they can stop the garage door from operating correctly, posing a risk to safety and convenience.

The Solution

The solution involves a thorough inspection to identify the cause of the malfunction. This might include cleaning the sensor lenses with a soft cloth, realigning the sensors to ensure they are facing each other directly, or replacing damaged wires or sensors. GDRCA Garage Door Repair and Gate provides comprehensive repair services to address these issues effectively.

Customer Reviews

Great Garage Door Service!

My garage door spring broke Friday around 11am. By 2pm the door was fixed. They could have put me off until Monday but was able squeeze me in. Fast but thorough going above and beyond fixing more then the broken spring. Highly recommend.

– Rick D. (

Exceptional service.

Another company told us we needed an entirely new unit – Chief garage door company not only fixed our problems but did at 1/5 of what the other wanted to charge. There’s a reason why this company is ranked so high. Extremely knowledgeable, honest and professional.

– Betty J. (Bing Maps Review)

Excellent work, excellent service.

Mark came out to perform a main visit on my garage doors, when he got there he said they were in good shape so it was going to cost less then the original agreed upon price. My garage doors are now smoother and quieter while costing me less money then I had planned on.
