Q: The motor on my garage door opener sounds like it is running, but nothing is moving. What could be the problem?
A: If you have a SearsCraftsman, Chamberlain, or Liftmaster, the gears on the inside of the motorhead may be worn out or stripped. If you have a Genie Screw Drive opener, the carriage may be worn out or stripped. D-J's Garage Door Place sells parts over the counter, but you could also have one of our experienced technicians come out and do a complete service of your door and opener while also replacing your gears.
Q: None of my remotes will close the door, only open it. I have to hold the wall button down to get the door opener to close. How can I get the door opener to properly work?
A: There are safety sensors on both sides of the door. You should first check to see if they are dirty, there is something blocking them, or they have been bumped out of line. If that is not the problem, then they may need to be replaced. D-J's Garage Door Place sells parts over the counter, but you could also have one of our experienced technicians come out and do a complete service of your door and opener while also replacing your sensors.
Q: I was putting my door down and it went crazy. One side is a foot higher than the other and it will not budge. What in the world happened to my door?

Q: Last night I heard a loud "BOOM" noise from the garage, I went out to see if something had fallen. I did not see anything, so I just went back in. Well then, this morning I went to leave for work and my door would not go up. I could not even lift it manually. What could be the problem?
