Garage Door Opener Sensor Repair Service

Your Local Garage Door Repair Company

Garage door opener sensor replacement involves the installation of new safety sensors for a residential or light commercial garage door system. These sensors typically mounted on either side of the garage door near the floor, use infrared technology to detect objects or obstructions in the door's path. When the sensors are misaligned or malfunctioning, they can prevent the door from closing or cause it to reverse unexpectedly. To ensure the safe and smooth operation of the garage door, it is essential to promptly replace faulty or damaged sensors.

At Fix Garage Doors CA, we have the experience and know-how to repair a sensor in a garage door opener the same day you call for our help. We’ve been helping customers with repairs in the Toronto area with various garage door issues, including sensor repair for all major brands.

Quick Repair of Misaligned Photo Sensor

Misalignment is one of the most common problems we run into when sensors aren’t working properly. This may be because something is constantly nudging up against them, or it may have happened because a vehicle or other object got a little too close as it was passing by the sensor.

Replacement of Damaged Sensors

If our on-site technicians can’t fix a broken sensor in your garage, they will replace it with genuine manufacturer parts after consulting with you first. Our specialists travel with most of the needed parts, but if they do have to return to the shop, they’ll return as soon as possible to finish the repairs.

Remove Objects Blocking the Sensor

If your sensor appears to be properly aligned and there isn’t any obvious debris blocking the sensor track, we’ll start by cleaning the lens to ensure there isn’t some dirt or debris blocking the photosensor that isn’t immediately obvious.

Fixing Problems with Garage Door Sensors

We have technicians nearby in the GTA ready to repair your sensor in a garage door opener. We can help to:

  • Realign your sensor
  • Make sure nothing is blocking the sensor track

  • Clean any dirt and debris from the sensor

If the sensors are still malfunctioning, contact our garage door repair company to replace them.

Cost of Sensor Repair

This price, of course, varies from the type and model of the garage door opener. Many sensors, nonetheless, cost around $32 and higher. Your mechanic’s labour costs also likely vary based on a few factors, including how difficult it is to access your sensors.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Is there a way to test garage door sensors?

    Yes, you can test garage door sensors to ensure they are functioning correctly. Here's how:
    1. Clear the Area: Make sure the garage floor between the sensors is free of objects or debris.
    2. Activate the Opener: Close the garage door using the opener.
    3. Obstruct the Sensors: While the door is closing, place an object in the path of one of the sensors to block the beam.
    4. Check Sensor Response: The sensors should detect the obstruction and reverse the door's direction, causing it to open again. This tests the safety feature.
    5. Repeat the Test: Repeat the test for the other sensor as well.
    If the door doesn't reverse when an object blocks the sensors, or if they are not aligned properly, you should clean or align them and retest. If the issue persists, consult a professional for repairs.

    How long do garage sensors last?

    Garage door sensors typically have a long lifespan, ranging from 5 to 15 years or more, depending on their quality and usage. Quality sensors from reputable manufacturers tend to last longer. Proper maintenance, such as keeping them clean and free of debris, can also extend their lifespan. However, environmental factors like extreme temperatures and humidity can affect their longevity.

    How much does it cost to replace a sensor on a garage door?

    The cost of replacing a garage door sensor can vary by location, the type of sensor, and the specific service provider you choose. On average, you can expect to pay between $50 to $150 or more for a single sensor. Labour costs for a professional technician typically range from $75 to $185, but this can also vary. These general cost estimates can differ depending on the specific region within Southern Ontario and the service provider you select.

    Garage door opener not working in cold weather

    It’s always possible your issue could be weather-related. If it is icy out, the lining of your garage door may be frozen and that is why the door is not going up. Besides, there could be condensation on your sensors obstructing their utility.

    How to disable a garage door safety sensor?

    Until you get your garage door safety sensor working, you may want to disable it until professional help arrives to ensure nothing is damaged. You can gently twist one, so the sensors do not line up, which will temporarily disable the sensor. You may not want to try anything more in-depth until you have professional help, as you do not want to damage the system permanently.

    Why should I call a professional for my garage door safety sensors?

    If your door sensors are malfunctioning you could have a problem with the wiring. And you know, anything involving electricity or wiring should always be left to a professional. It is not impossible for you to do a DIY of this nature. Wiring repair can be very tricky and potentially dangerous. A garage door professional has the experience and knowledge of working with many different types of systems and has the tools and equipment needed to fix the problem. They will also be able to look at the rest of your garage door system and see if there are any other fixes necessary in order for your door to operate correctly again. Moreover, a garage door professional will also be able to tell you if the problem is beyond fixing and you need a new garage door.
