A common reason for your Indianapolis garage door not opening is a broken spring. A spring provides tension to help your garage door opener lift your garage door. This is an issue you can usually diagnose with ease. Springs are typically directly above the garage door near the wall.


When it breaks, it is easy to spot the problem as you will see the broken section of the garage door spring. It’s important to note that if you have two springs on your garage door, you’ll most likely need to have both springs replaced.


Note: Please do not attempt to repair or replace a spring on your own, call a professional garage door repair company as this repair can be very hazardous.

Garage Door Off Track Repair

Garage door off track repair services for your home. Sometimes garage doors come off track for no apparent reason and need repair.

But there are a few reasons this can happen. The main one is that the garage door was struck by a car. The said vehicle doesn’t have to be moving fast - maybe only 3 to 5 mph (5 to 8 km/h) to do real damage. The next common reason is the horizontal tracks bend under the weight of the door or the tracks aren’t aligned properly.

This is why hiring a professional to install your garage door in the first place is so important. Next is if one or two of your garage door rollers break prematurely from extreme wear, or they are of lower quality.

1st Choice Doors only uses quality parts to reduce the chance of this. Sometimes the lift cable breaks. It is more rare, but if you never had professional garage door maintenance, and it is old, then this can happen. Call or contact us if this is what went wrong with your garage door and we will get it back to perfect fast and on budget.

photo eye repair.jpg

Photo Eye Repair

A common reason for a garage door not closing can be a malfunctioning photo-eye. Photo eyes are there to keep the garage door from closing if an object passes through the infrared beams.

Photo-eyes need to be lined up correctly, if the alignment is thrown off it may cause your garage door to not close. Also, if the lens on one or both of the photo eyes is dirty with debris, this can also cause your garage door to not operate. With both of these scenarios, your photo-eyes system assumes that there is an obstruction in the door.

If your photo eye is flashing that means an obstruction is in the path of the door. Remove the debris and adjust the photo-eye until the indicator light is no longer flashing. Your door should now properly operate.

If you replace the battery in the remote and it still doesn’t work, give a reputable garage door company (like us!) a call to diagnose the problem.

A new garage door opener is typically not needed unless yours is more than 10 years old.
