How to Open a Garage Door when the Power Goes Out
At Precision Garage Door of Eastern Shore, we understand how frustrating it can be when your garage door stops working because of a power outage. That’s why we offer reliable and fast garage door repair services to get your garage door back up and running in no time.
Here are some steps you can take to get your garage door open and get on your way:
- First, check to see if the power outage is local to your home or if it affects your entire neighborhood. If it’s just your home that’s affected, check the circuit breaker to see if a circuit has been tripped. If the circuit breaker is the issue, reset it and try to open the garage door again.
- If the power outage is widespread and affects your entire neighborhood, you’ll need to use a manual override to open your garage door. Most garage door openers have a cord or handle that can be used to open the door manually. Locate this cord or handle and use it to open the door manually.
- If you’re having trouble locating the manual override cord or handle, consult the owner’s manual for your garage door opener. The manual should have detailed instructions on how to open the door manually.
- If you still can’t get the garage door open, try using a backup power source, such as a portable generator, to power the garage door opener. This will allow you to open the door without manually overriding the system.
