A client from Syracuse, NE, contacted our team at Titan Garage Doors Lincoln NE, because they needed assistance with their garage door opener. The client's garage door opener stopped responding to the wall control panel, but it did when they used the remote control. They could not tell what was causing the issue, so they called for garage door opener repair. After testing the wires and circuit board, our technician determined the wall control was beyond repair and needed replacement. Since we had a compatible replacement part, we could replace the garage door opener control panel on the same day. The client was grateful for this very affordable option.
Garage door openers typically include a hard-wired wall control panel inside the garage that can open and close the door without using a wireless remote. A wall control panel ensures that even if the remote does not work, you can still open and close the garage door while figuring out the problem. However, there may be times when neither the remote control nor the wall control panel will open the garage door. It means that your garage door will not budge in any way, shape, or form, stranding your car inside or outside the garage.
There could be several reasons your garage door opener control panel is not working. The first possibility is that the breaker was tripped. If this is the case, you must reset the breaker by turning it off and back on. If otherwise, your electrical system may have a more severe problem, and you should contact an electrician.
Another possibility is that the wiring has a loose connection. You can check for this by removing the panel's cover plate and inspecting the wires. If there are loose wires, use a screwdriver to tighten them up. The third reason could be that something is wrong with the control panel itself and that it needs to be replaced. Call the professionals at Titan Garage Doors Lincoln NE for expert assistance.
If the wall control panel on your garage door opener has stopped working, you may wonder if you can replace it on your own. Replacing a garage door wall control panel is a relatively simple task that most people can complete on their own in under an hour. However, if you understand basic electricity and are comfortable with tools, you can follow these steps to replace them.
The best thing about replacing a garage door wall control panel is that you do not need special tools or repair skills. But before you begin, make sure you have the following on hand: a screwdriver, a new wall control panel (which you can buy at any hardware store or online), and lastly, some patience.
To begin, turn off the opener by disconnecting it from the electrical outlet or turning off the circuit breaker. Next, remove the control panel box's cover plate and unscrew the opener from its bracket with a screwdriver. Finally, remove the wires from the terminal screws on both sides of the now-exposed metal bracket. With everything detached, you should be able to lift off the old control panel, leaving a space for your new one to be installed.
