Get Your Garage Door Opener In Gear
Give or take a few trips to the grocery store, a garage door fails somewhere around the 10,000th cycle. While there may have been a catalyst for the failure, typically it’s because it was just its time to go.
So unless there’s a clear reason for why your garage is done, in most cases it’ll be related to the motor failing.
When the time comes for a new opener, it can be confusing to know what’s best. As it turns out, there are quite a few different types available, all of which come with varying functionality.

From the Remote to the Motor, Your Garage Door Opener Works Hard From Day One
Garage door openers might have only have one job, but that single job consists of many other smaller jobs working in unison. Between the balance, the mounting, the tension, the weight and the electronic components, automatic garage access is a complex system.
It starts with the motor.
Technically, it starts with a door that is laid perfectly in line on its tracks. But after that, it’s the motor. And through a high-tension system of springs that does the actual lifting, your motor is the centerpiece of your garage door installation. Which means when it finally goes, the only way forward is by getting a new one.
Circuitry is often to blame for a bad garage door opener.
Most motors are connected to two sets of controls – the remote control that usually stays inside the car, and the wall control that lets you get out of your garage without having to manually pull it up.
Usually, motors are powered via a simple outlet designated for opening and closing the garage door in the ceiling.
With the motor itself being mechanically straightforward, the controls are often the culprit for a motor that doesn’t want to pull the same way.
