BROKEN GARAGE DOOR SENSOR REPAIR
Garage door detectors are safety mechanisms that are now included in just about every new garage setup. Typically using a photoelectric eye mounted about 6" from the ground, these devices have the important job of making sure that your garage door doesn't accidentally close on your vehicle, children, or pets. To test if your sensor is working correctly put a roll of paper towels in front of the sensor - if your garage door doesn't stop before it crushes the towels, it might be time to schedule an appoint with BSD Garage.
SENSORS CAN STILL MALFUNCTION
These detectors can get out of alignment which can cause the door to not stop even when something is in the way. Electrical problems can cause your garage door to stop in mid-operation. Malfunctions like these can range anywhere from mildly annoying to a major safety problem. Because of the risk involved, it is highly recommended to have a professional to look at it as soon as possible.
TROUBLESHOOTING SENSOR PROBLEMS
Our certified experts will thoroughly investigate your garage door sensor for any and all issues it may have. Our troubleshooting procedure will find the source of your detector malfunction. Sometimes the problem is merely damage to the photoelectric eye in form of blunt trauma or humidity. Other times the issue stems from just minor obstructions that inhibit the sensor from operating correctly. Then again, the problem might even be deeper than this - such as electrical problems associated with frayed or improper wiring.

DAMAGE TO THE PHOTO EYE
High levels of humidity or hitting the detector with your body, your vehicle, or a trashcan can damage the picture eye to the stage where it should be replaced.
As a result of connection issues with the cables that link light-emitting diode lights to the detector interfaces, the detector lights supply or might flash different colour lights that signal improper wiring
