Garage Door Motor Making Grinding Noises?

Can you hear your garage door operator running and nothing happening? This can be caused by the internal gears being stripped or worn out. Most of the time this can be a simple fix. A stripped gear can cause your garage door to open and close intermittently. Stripped gears can be the result of improperly sized or installed springs or broken springs. Call our technicians at 408-872-9338 today if you think you're having problems with a stripped gear. In most cases, we can provide same days for your garage.
