Belt-Driven Garage Door Openers
Belt-driven garage door openers use a rubber belt to slide the trolley when the garage door needs to be opened or closed. In this case, because the trolley is moving on a rubber belt, it is far less noisy than a chain-driven opener. Belt-driven garage door openers also produce less vibrations than chain openers and require less moving parts, which means they are less prone to breakage. Furthermore, homes that have a bedroom or living area near the garage door, a belt-driven option is ideal.
Chain-Operated Garage Door Openers
While chain drive garage door openers are usually the lowest-cost option, some homeowners don’t like the noise. Why? Because as the chain drives the trolley, it causes a racket. While there is noise, chain openers are very cost-effective. Because of the potential for noise, chain garage door openers are a great option when the garage is detached from the house. But for homes where a room or living area is situated near the garage, chain openers are not.
Screw-Driven Garage Door Openers
Screw drive garage door openers use a threaded steel rod to move the trolley. The trolley opens and closes as the thread rotates. Like belt-driven varieties, screw drive garage door openers require less moving parts and do not require a lot of up-front maintenance. Furthermore, screw drive openers also offer a greater level of durability. While they are as quiet and require less maintenance than belt-driven varieties, they are stronger than belt-driven varieties
Is your Garage Door Opener Broken?
Fixing or replacing a garage door opener is not a minor job. That is why it is important to double check. Homeowners can assess a seemingly broken garage door opener before calling the repair person. In some cases, the problem is not with the opener itself. The door may be out of alignment or there may be a spring issue. But if you do think the opener itself could be the problem, there are steps you can take to test it.
The first suggestion is probably the most obvious. If you can unplug and plug back in the garage door opener, that might help. Also check the wall lights. If it is a problem with the circuit breaker, it may need to be reset. If attempting the common fixes does not work, you may need to repair or replace the opener.
So, what’s the problem? The most common reason a garage door opener needs a repair or replacement is due to a malfunction on the logic board. The logic boards are the brains of the operation and ensure smooth functionality of the device. Another common problem is stripped gears. The mechanical components inside the opener might still work, but without functional gears, it will not operate. Need garage door repair in Canton, Ohio?
