  • The LED lights on the sensors are not working or flickering
  • Garage door opener not responding even though the remote is working fine
  • The garage door starts to close but suddenly stops and reverses

Garage Door Sensor Issues

Various issues can affect the performance of your garage door sensors, including:

  • Misalignment: The sensors might not be aligned properly, leading to false detection of obstructions.
  • Dirt or debris: Dust, dirt, or cobwebs on the sensors can interfere with their functionality.
  • Damaged wiring: The garage door sensor wire replacement might be necessary if the wires are frayed, cut, or damaged.
  • Faulty sensors: Sometimes, the sensors themselves are faulty and need replacement.

What about Costs?

  • Screwdriver or drill
  • Wire strippers
  • Wire nuts or connectors
  • A level
