Possible causes of Garage Door Motor Issues

Trolleys slide back and forth on the tracks to open or close a garage door.

Garage doors are one of a household’s largest and most frequently used machines. Over time, they experience depreciation that has adverse side effects. The motor, especially, is susceptible to issues that cause it to not be able to operate the door effectively. Homeowners should be knowledgeable about these issues to identify them when they arise.

Stuck trolley

Trolleys slide back and forth on the tracks to open or close a garage door. These trolleys are prone to jamming and, in the process, fail to move the garage door effectively.

Stripped gears

Garage door gears transmit torque (rotational force) from the motor to the garage doors to open or close the door. If the gears become stripped by debris or rust, they may not function properly.

Clogged tracks

Garage door tracks are the pathways on which the trolleys slide back and forth to operate the garage doors. If they become clogged by debris, small objects, or rust, they may obstruct the trolleys’ pathway and prevent the motor from operating the garage door.

Faulty capacitors

Capacitors regulate the flow of electricity within the garage door motor to ensure the motor functions smoothly. If the motor stops functioning as expected, it could be due to capacitor faults.

Faulty motor

Motors generate the torque (rotational force) needed to open and close a garage door. Like any device, they are susceptible to wear and tear. Faults in the motor can affect the motor’s efficiency or function altogether.

Taking action

Troubleshooting the garage door motor for any of these issues is often too complicated and dangerous for the average homeowner due to a lack of expert training. A professional should be contacted as soon as possible to resolve these issues.
