Gear Kit Installed in Vancouver
This is a homeowner’s gear kit. You can see why they called us. The gear’s edges are are worn and shredded. This is a common problem with chain drive openers. If you suddenly find that the motor on your garage door opener sounds like it’s running, but the door isn’t moving, checking for worn gears is the first thing you should do.
This is what it looks like when the gear is completely shredded apart. Some reasons this can happen are the garage door is out of balance (Springs broke or in need of adjustment), the chain is too tight, old age (it happens), and/or excessive use or a high cycle.
This is what a working gear kit should like! If your gear does not look like this, call Access Garage Doors today @ 604-940-8918! Take a look at the before and after picture below.
