A Few Informative Answers
What is the best garage door opener?
Not every garage door opener is perfect for every door, and new models are released often enough that it’s hard to say how long any answer would even remain true. As of the time of writing, the best opener according to multiple independent polls was the Chamberlain WD832KEV belt drive model, or the Genie 1035-V chain drive opener as a cheaper alternative. However, don’t forget that each garage door is different, and the best for most people may not be the best for you.
How long do garage door openers last?
A garage door opener’s lifespan depends both on its innate quality, and its work environment. Opener models whose mechanisms are maintained regularly and who are hooked up to doors substantially lighter than their maximum lifting power will last much longer. The best openers can last over 20 years if treated properly and not overworked, but the average lifespan is closer to 10-15.
Why is my garage door remote not working?
First, make sure that there’s no button that’s stuck, and check the battery compartment for obstructions before putting in new batteries. If it still doesn’t work, then the problem is either with the remote’s wiring, or the opener’s programming or reception hardware. In the former case, you’re best off getting a new remote. In the latter, professional repairs may be necessary.
What are some useful garage door opener troubleshooting tips?
Make sure that the opener is plugged in, its lights are on, and that its belt, chain, or arm is properly connected to the rest of the door system. Check the travel and force dials, and make sure they haven’t moved since you had the opener set up. Look for broken or exposed wires, and test different control systems (remote, wall panel, car transponder, etc) to see if one of them is the problem. If all else fails, call for help.
