If not, the problem must be fixed enforce installing the new opener. Do not expect the garage opener to “ignore” the problems. The door may work for a while, but if the door itself isn’t working properly, it is only a matter of time before the opener will stop working, and beside new opener, you will have to contact a garage door technician in La Puente to come and fix the door for you.

When to install a new garage operator?
The short answer is: If the door is working properly and smoothly when you use it manually. Do not expect the garage opener to be the solution to your garage door problem. If there is something wrong, first take care of the problem, and only then use the opener to open and close the door.
Some people think that since it is hard to open their garage door manually, installing a garage door opener will solve the problem. But they are wrong! The garage opener shouldn’t be installed if the door is broken. And if there is already a garage opener installed, do not use it if the door is broken. First, take care of the problem, by using a garage door company in La Puente, and only once the door is working again, you can use the garage door remotely. Any attempt to use the door remotely, when there is something wrong with the door, like a broken garage door spring, can result with a bigger damage, and even with injuries. During many years of servicing overhead doors in La Puente, we have seen overhead doors crashing, garage doors falling from the tracks, and ending with huge damage. To avoid that, do not ignore a problem, and use a garage door repairman in La Puente to fix the broken door for you. You do not want to try and use the door one day, and find that you can’t open or close your garage door.
