Garage Door Sensor Repair

Reasons for Garage Door Sensor Breaking

Like any other device, garage door sensors can break down or malfunction, requiring repair or replacement. In this article, we’ll discuss the reasons behind garage door sensor breaking, choosing the right sensor, and how CATR ACRT Garages can assist you in repairing or replacing your garage door sensor.

There are several reasons why a garage door sensor may break or malfunction:

  1. Wear and Tear: With regular use, garage door sensors can wear down over time, leading to potential failures or malfunctions
  2. Dirt and Debris: Dirt, dust, and debris can accumulate on the sensor lenses, causing them to function improperly or fail to detect objects in their path
  3. Misalignment: Garage door sensors need to be properly aligned to work correctly. If they become misaligned due to an accident or natural wear, they may not function as intended
  4. Water Damage: Exposure to moisture, water, or humidity can damage the internal components of the sensor, leading to malfunction or complete failure
  5. Electrical Issues: Faulty wiring or electrical problems can cause the sensor to stop working altogether

Choosing the Right Garage Door Sensor

When selecting a garage door sensor, consider the following factors:

  • Ensure the sensor is compatible with your garage door opener and system. Check the specifications of your current garage door system to find a suitable replacement
  • Opt for a high-quality sensor from a reputable manufacturer to ensure durability and reliability. High-quality sensors are more likely to last longer and perform better over time
  • Sensitivity: Choose a sensor with adjustable sensitivity settings, so it can be fine-tuned to your specific garage door system and environment. This will help reduce false alarms and improve overall functionality
  • Installation: Look for a sensor that is easy to install and comes with clear instructions. This will make the process of replacing the sensor more manageable and less time-consuming
  • Warranty: Select a garage door sensor that comes with a warranty, offering you peace of mind and protection against potential defects
