There are many causes as to why it seems like the garage door has a mind of its own.
You may start questioning: why would my garage door randomly open out of nowhere?
We are here, and we have detected and figured out so many causes to this case.
The garage door is an old model
Old garage doors are built with a different model.
Newer innovations in garage doors enable more codes in the security system of the garage door.
If you have a garage door model from before 1993, it’s programmed with positioning clips.
Positioning clips have fewer possible code combinations.
Your garage door may have the same code as the next-door garage door that’s also as old as yours.
It’s a rare occurrence, but it is possible, and when it does happen, you have to consider upgrading to a new garage door.
The remote control or wall switch is faulty
Worn out remote controls can get damages over time.
If one of the buttons doesn’t pop out of place after you press it, it can trigger the garage door to open.
It’s one of the most common causes of the issue that requires remote control replacement.
Check the wall switch as well.
If you don’t check it from time to time, there might be dirt in the mechanism that causes it to trigger the open function.
In both cases, check the control switches and decide if you need to replace them or maintain their condition.
There is interference in the area
Do you have new neighbors in the area?
They might be the ones controlling your garage door.
If they have the same frequency as your new neighbor, they can signal your garage door to open anytime.
The same frequency can make the garage more accessible to the next-door home.
The only thing you need to do with this problem is to reprogram your garage door opener frequency.
You do not need to ask your neighbor to replace their garage door with a different one.
A recent thunderstorm or lightning strike hit the area
Did your area undergo an extreme storm recently?
It might be the power surges messing with the circuits of your power boards.
Expect some impairment to the wirings as well.
It affects your garage doors since power surges can bring in damages to your garage door system.
It’s not exactly a DIY to fix a damaged electrical circuit for your home.
You need to book professional repairs from experienced technicians.
The sensors are not aligned well
The photo-eyes of the garage door are safety measures for the garage.
It prevents the garage door from crushing anything that obstructs the path.
However, misaligned sensors can cause your garage door to think that there is always something blocking the path.
Your sensors will make your garage door think that it shouldn’t close because there is something in the way.
Adjust the garage door sensors so you can see your garage door settle down.
After aligning the sensors, the garage door should roll down smoothly.
