Homeowners often take their garage door opener for granted and fail to perform any preventative maintenance to keep it running safely and smoothly.  On average, a garage door opener is used over 1500 times a year, so it is no surprise that it will need to be repaired from time to time.  At Corpus Christi Garage Door Pros, we know how vital a functioning door opener is to our clients, and we have a staff of expert technicians that have the education and experience to inspect and repair any door opener system you have.  Listed below are some common signs that your garage door opener requires repair or replacement.

Grinding Noise

Either loose hardware or improper lubrication most often causes grinding noises.  Our expert technician will properly tighten all hardware and adequately lubricate all moving parts.

Garage Doors Starts to Open but Then Closes

This is usually a sign that the springs are failing, springs are one of the most dangerous parts of the opener system and should only be serviced by a professional.


If you notice any gaps around the garage door, it is crucial to have them properly sealed.  Gaps can allow moisture, dirt, and pests to enter and not only damage the door opener but your property as well.

Unresponsive Opener

One of the most common reasons the opener is unresponsive is that the photo-eye is not correctly aligned or plugged in.

Unresponsive Remote Control

The two most common reasons the remote control will fail to respond is either it needs new batteries, or the frequency needs to be reprogrammed.

Rubbing Noise

If you hear a rubbing noise as your door is opening or closing, it may indicate that there is a problem with the alignment of the track.

Humming Noise

If you notice a humming noise when you try to open or close your garage door, then the most likely cause is a stripped gear in the door opener.  Our technician will thoroughly inspect the opener system because this repair could be as simple as replacing the stripped gear, or as complicated as needing to replace the door opener itself.

While it may be tempting to diagnose and repair any door opener issues yourself, it is highly recommended to call a professional.  Garage door openers are most often attached to the ceiling and require the use of ladders and involve heavy parts like the door. If you are inexperienced, you can cause serious injury to yourself and others as well as damage expensive property you have stored in there.   At Corpus Christi Garage Door Pros customer safety is our highest priority, and we highly recommend calling and scheduling an appointment with one of our expert technicians to safely and correctly fix any door opener issues you may be experiencing.
