The Common Garage Door Opener Issues
There are many factors that might affect your opener and cause it to fail.
➤ Your remote control suddenly stopped working-
If you’re having trouble opening your garage door and the remote is not responding, it’s probably because of one of the following reasons:
- The remote battery is depleted. Garage door remote batteries usually last about two years. Try to change the battery and see if it works.
- If it’s not a battery issue, you might be out of range. Make sure you’re standing within 20 feet of your garage door and try to press the button again.
- Check the garage door motor’s antenna- see if it’s pointed toward the garage door and it’s not damaged.
- Remote needs programming.

Garage Door Opener Repair by Experts

The wiring inside a garage door opener is extremely delicate and may damage easily. We keep genuine replacement parts on hand and our experts are ready when you need them.

Another problem could simply be that the wall switch is not working, preventing your opener from operating properly. This would also require a professional technician to come in. The wall switch could be failing for multiple reasons and the safest, most effective way to go is hiring an expert. Perhaps you have decided to install an automatic opener, which will help you avoid any hassle that comes from a remote or wall switch.
For instance, a leak on your ceiling could cause water to spill into your automatic opener, which would cause the system to fail. However, only an expert would be able to tell you exactly what has gone wrong with your opener and how to solve it. When you call an expert you can be sure that you are getting genuine replacement parts, in case it is necessary.

Trust Severna Garage Door Repair
While automatic garage door openers make our lives significantly easier, allowing us to control them without leaving the car and helping us be sure that we have properly locked up at night, they involve delicate parts and technology that needs proper maintenance and, occasionally, updates. As we all know, technology has never advanced as quickly in history as it is in the present. While most of us think of smartphones and tablets when we think about these technological discoveries and inventions, garage door openers are not left behind.
For this reason, every few years your opener may stop working as great as it used to. Our trained technicians will be able to tell you if it is time for an upgrade, or if your opener is simply in need of some maintenance work.
In any case, a garage door opener needing repair can manifest in multiple ways: from a door not opening or closing when it should, to a noisy door. The best way to find out what is happening and how to solve it is giving us a call.

Garage Door Opener Installation
Garage door openers are the machines that help you open your garage door. They may seem simple, but choosing the right one for you can be more difficult than you expect. From the horsepower that you need to the best type of opener for you, selecting the right opener is best done by professionals. For this reason, if you’re in the Severna Park, Maryland, area, your best bet is Severna Garage Door Repair.
You can find openers of three types: chain drive, belt drive, and screw drive. At Severna Garage Door Repair, we work with chain drive and belt drive openers, which we consider are the best options.
Chain Drive & Belt Drive Garage Door Openers
Brand New Garage Door Openers from LiftMaster
➞ Chain-Drive Garage Door Openers have a mechanism that works with a long chain that pulls the door to open it or to close it. On the other hand, belt drive openers use a rubber belt to operate the door.
➞ Belt-Drive Garage Door Opener is quieter, while the chain-drive is less expensive. Our team of experts will be able to tell you which type is the best for you, and we can ensure a safe and affordable installation.
In the market, you will be able to find different horsepower for different openers. This does not affect the speed at which your door will open.
The horsepower varies depending on the size of the door because the bigger it is, the more it weights. A lighter door would need a horsepower of 1/3 or 1/2. Meanwhile, a heavier one would need 3/4 hp.
Guessing the horsepower your door may need is not the way to go. This could easily result in loss of money and time.
Our trained professionals can tell you exactly what horsepower suits your door best, so that you can be sure to buy the right opener.

Hiring a Professional

We believe that this is not a risk worth taking. In the Maryland area, our team of highly trained professionals at Severna Garage Door Repair will be able to make the installation go smoothly.
Beyond choosing the best opener for you, the installation process is complex, and best done by a professional. Installing garage door openers requires handling delicate wiring and getting the chain or belt, depending on the type you choose, rightly in place. A trained professional also knows how to connect your opener to your WiFi network.
If you choose to do this yourself, you risk leaving your house without Internet connection and would still need to call someone in to fix the damage. Hiring a professional right out of the get go will help the installation process go hassle free.
The installation process also involves handling the chains and the belts. We recommend not messing with these parts unless you have the proper training because they are not cheap to replace. Chain kits and belt kits include a number of small parts. A trained professional will know exactly where those go and what they do. The smallest part can cause the entire opener to fail if placed incorrectly. The best way to avoid damaging your brand-new, state of the art opener is by calling a professional.
