The opener itself is one possible culprit and a battery check typically solves the problem.  Further examination is often necessary to ensure there are no underlying issues. At Aladdin Doors, we are authorized Liftmaster dealers and have experience with a wide range of technology that will be able to fulfill and fix your opener needs.


When you have faulty rollers, it could mean the wheels on the garage door track are rusted or worn down. These types of issues can sometimes be accompanied by a loud, screeching noises when the door operates. They are not an easy fix as not many people have spare rollers lying around their garage, and the replacement takes a good deal of experience and knowledge.


The springs on your door are what allow the door to move and need immediate and careful examination when they are not functioning properly. There are risks of further damage and injury when the springs malfunction. Our technicians are able to come and replace both springs in case one breaks shortly after the other in order to save you time and money.

Off The Tracks

There is also a possibility of your garage door being off its tracks, and this is usually the most imperative issue. It can cause injury to you, or others, or structural damage. Simply giving the door a push back into place may seem like a quick DIY fix, but more likely than not, there will be injury and harm involved, and it won’t solve the problem. It is highly recommended that you call someone who has the proper equipment and know-how to repair the problem.

While some garage door issue fixes are cosmetic-type problems, there are other issues that could potentially harm your car, your home, or even you and your family if not treated properly and in a timely manner.
