It is not always a rollup operator problem!
Before we determine if the problem is really with the roll up door operator, we need to examine the door itself first. As we explained earlier (in the previous paragraph about overhead door spring repair Gardena), a rollup door should work perfectly and should be opened and closed easily without the opener. If there is a problem when you use the door manually, the door should not be used, manually or electrically.
If there is a problem with the rollup door itself, such as snapped steel cable, damaged spring, or even broken roller, the opener may not be able to open or to close the door. In order for the rollup motor to operate the door, the mechanism of the door should be in good condition. The opener’s part in lifting and lowering the door is a relatively small part, when the biggest part is being done by the spring system. When the springs and the hardware system work fine, and there is no problem with the door, then we can move forward to inspect the opener itself.
