Garage Door Sensor Repair Lynn

Your garage door is more than just an entrance – it’s a vital security feature for your home. At the heart of this system are the sensors, which act as electronic eyes, ensuring safe operation. However, like any component, these sensors can malfunction, leaving your door vulnerable. That’s where Garage Door Repair Lynn comes in, offering expert sensor repair services to keep your family and belongings protected.

Types of Garage Door Sensors

Garage door sensors come in various forms, each with its unique strengths and applications:

Reed Switch Door Sensors

These sensors use magnetic fields to detect when the door is open or closed. They’re simple, reliable, and often found in older garage door systems.

Infrared Door Sensors

Utilizing invisible infrared beams, these sensors create an invisible barrier across the door’s path. If the beam is interrupted, the door automatically reverses, preventing accidents.

Rolling Switch Door Sensors

As the name suggests, these sensors are mounted on the door itself and monitor its movement. They’re particularly useful for detecting obstructions during the closing cycle.

Ignoring sensor issues can lead to costly repairs or even accidents. Here are some telltale signs that your garage door sensors need attention:

  • The door fails to reverse when an object is in its path.
  • The sensors seem misaligned or are constantly blinking.

Before calling in the professionals, there are a few troubleshooting steps you can try:

  • Check for obstructions: Ensure nothing is blocking the sensor’s path, such as dirt, debris, or misplaced objects.
  • Clean the sensors: Gently wipe the sensor lenses with a soft, dry cloth to remove any buildup or dust.
