If you have an automatic garage door opener you probably also have garage door sensors. Garage door sensors are designed to prevent the door from closing on anything that might happen under the door. This protects your family, pets, bikes and even your car. These sensors also protect the door, which can be damaged if it closes on top of something. When the sensors are not working properly, it can be a very serious problem. If your garage door sensors in Carson and you need repair or replacement, Call 3RRR at (866) 423 3388.

Signs Your Garage Door Sensors Aren’t Working
You don’t want to wait until something — or worse, someone — gets crushed beneath your garage door to call for repairs on your garage sensors. Here are some subtle signs that your garage sensors are not working properly.
The Door Doesn’t Close
If your garage sensors sense that something is obstructing the path of the door, they will not allow the door to close. Certain sensor systems won’t allow the door to close at all, while other systems let the door start to close, but then stop it abruptly before closes all the way. If this is happening when the path between the sensors is clear, it is a sure sign you need to have your garage sensors repaired.
Safety sensors prevent the garage door from closing on a person or an object. One sensor sends an infrared beam while the other sensor receives the infrared beam. First off, your sensors just may need to be cleaned off, so try to gently remove any dust or dirt first and see if that works. If that doesn’t work, it could be electrical. The sensors have to be aligned with each other and also have to be connected correctly to the garage door system to work. If an object breaks the beam/ interferes with the path of the beam, the closing garage door reverses direction.
The Door Does Close
One of the most dangerous signs that something isn’t working right with your garage door sensors is that the door closes regardless of what’s in the way. If this is happening to your garage door, don’t wait. Call our office for repairs right away.
