My Garage Door Suddenly Stopped Working

There are different repair solutions depending on if your garage door is stuck open or closed. If your garage door won’t close, it is more than likely that your sensor’s photo eyes are either misaligned or could be broken. We repair and replace all brands of photo eye sensors. If yours need a new set, we will replace them with a new pair of compatible photo eye sensors.
