Garage door openers are just mechanisms. As all mechanisms, their main part is a motor that is powered by electricity. The motor is found at the main unit up against the ceiling since most openers are mounted on ceilings. The electric power passes through the chain of the opener or any other drive the opener has and is transferred to the door. People faulty often believe that electric operators open the door. This is a slightly wrong assumption. Electric door openers supply the system with the electric power required so that the spring/cable system would open the door. For this reason, the power of the motor always depends on the door's weight. If the door is very heavy, the horsepower of the motor is higher accordingly. All electric openers today are obliged to have safety features in the form of sensors and release cords for the protection of people from entrapment.
Giving attention to the condition of these safety features of your garage door openers is the priority of our professionals. When we service your electric opener, the first thing we do is to check whether the photo eyes activate the reverse system, the release rope is strong and the entire operating system works with safety. These are always the priorities of Garage Door Repair Waconia since your safety concerns us. People are required by law to own openers with these features as much as manufacturers are required to produce electric door operators with safety features.
