what problems we will encounter when using garage door motors

When your garage door stops suddenly when it is operating normally, the cause of the problem is usually easy to understand, and the solution is usually easy. Below are the four most common problems and the most likely fixes for each problem. If none of the following repair measures can be resolved, we Master Well suggest you to consult the user manual or contact a professional.


1. Neither the remote control nor the wall switch can operate the motor

● It is almost certain that the power supply has been interrupted in some way, when the garage door does not move at all when the remote control or wall switch is pressed. First check the socket into the door opener and make sure the power cord is fully inserted.

● If you find that other lights or circuits in the garage are not working properly, maybe the circuit breaker, fuse or GFCI socket that supplies power to the garage door motor circuit trip or burn out. We Master Well suggest you to reset the circuit breaker or GFCI or replace the blown fuse. If the circuit breaker or GFCI trips repeatedly, it indicates that there is a short circuit somewhere in the system, and even the garage door motor itself may be shorted.

●Finally, the motor of the garage door opener may burn out or even not run at all. This needs to be replaced by you (or service personnel)

2. When the remote control of the garage door motor or the control on the wall does not respond

When the wireless remote control or wall-mounted controller cannot control the garage door, there are several possible solutions:

●Close to the door, you may have exceeded the maximum range of the garage door motor receiver. Modern garage door motors are essentially small radio devices, and a distance of a few feet may affect the signal.

●Make sure that the antenna on the motor unit is hanging downward and there is no damage.

●If you can use wall switch to make the door function properly, you will most likely need to replace the battery in the remote control or controller.

●Reprogram the remote control or controller. Sensitive electronic devices in the remote control or controller may sometimes lose their programming and may need to be reset. The reprogramming method for each garage door motor is slightly different, so please consult the instructions or find online information on how to accomplish this for a specific model of motor.

3. The garage door has not been able to close

If the garage door opens normally but cannot be completely closed, it may be one of the following three common reasons:

●Closing the limit switch may require adjustment.Whether it is when it is opened or when it is closed, your garage door has a limit switch that indicates when the motor will stop running. If the closing limit switch is set incorrectly, it may prevent the door from closing. When you try to close, it may also cause the opener to reverse or pull upward.

●Turning off the limit switch is a safety measure that prevents people from being hit and keeps the door closed. It is a necessary and necessary device for all garage door openers. Adjusting the limit switch will prevent abnormalities in your garage door.

●Different garage doors have different methods to adjust the set limit switches, but usually turn the screws on the motor unit to adjust the distance of the door drop.

4. When the garage door is opened and closed, the motor is still running

When such an abnormal problem occurs, it means that the upper limit switch may need to be removed from the motor unit. This problem rarely occurs; if it does occur, it will usually be the first time you install a garage door remote control receiver.
