Most garage door repairs should be done by a professional garage door technician and should not be tried by a DIY or handyman. They can be extremely dangerous and in extreme case can cause death. It is always best to call your local garage door repair experts for your garage door repair.
How do I know what size garage door opener to buy when it needs to be replaced? Also, what brand garage door will last the longest?
Depending on the height of your door whether it is 8' tall or 7' tall, you can purchase the according size. It does not matter if you buy a 1/2 H/P or a 3/4, as longer as the door is balanced properly either size motor will do fine. Chamberlain/Liftmaster makes a good machine, and Overhead Doors new line of Odyssey and Destiny DC direct drive machines are excellent, I have found to have had quite a bit of luck with those machines. They have few moving parts, and a totally enclosed boom. Also they are extremely quiet.
My opener only just hums when switch is pressed (on either house wall or remote) but will not move. Recently it would not work for several attempts but seemed to be normal after lubricating hinges and other moving parts.
Does anyone have any ideas about this problem. Thanks so much!
