There are different reasons why garage doors suddenly stop working smoothly. Most of us do not dare to check and instantly call professional help, but sometimes the causes are just simple and there is no need to seek assistance from a garage door contractor. It is important that you have the right knowledge about different parts, its functions, and the working of the entire door mechanism to be able to detect the cause of the malfunction.

If you are using a garage door opener and the door is not opening and closing, you must check your remote control because it might be because of the batteries. It can also be due to misalignment of the sensors or there might be an obstruction beneath the door. You can simply align it properly and remove the obstruction.

If you do not have an opener, you should check different parts.
