Have at some instructions below so you know how to quickly reset your garage door opener.
- Door Must be in Down Position
Before you start disengaging your garage door opener make sure the door is in down position. Trying to do it when the door is up can be extremely dangerous. If the spring on your garage door is broken, it can cause the garage door to fall down.
If your garage door is stuck in the open position, we recommend contacting a specialist like Metro Garage Services to avoid further damage.
- Pull the Release Cord
The emergency release cord is the red rope that hangs from the door trolley. The trolley is connected to the door and moves with it as it opens and shuts. The trolley is also connected to the garage door opener carriage. The opener carriage is the automated mechanism that moves the door along the track. The cord disconnects the trolley through attachment point from the opener carriage so that the door can slide along the rail, without the automated carriage. It allows your to open and shut the door manually.
- Return the Garage Door to Down Position
Once you are done with moving your garage door and are ready to re-engage the automatic door opener, you should return your garage door back to the down position.
- Pull the Release Cord Toward the Door
When it comes to emergency release cord, the trolley gets either connected or disconnected. These two positions alter the location of the spring lever on the trolley.
When the spring lever is extended, it means it’s disconnected. When the spring lever is compressed, it means the position is required to re-engage the opener carriage. To achieve the connected position, pull the emergency release cord down and toward the door.
- Re-connect the trolley with the Opener
Here we would like to mention two ways of connecting the trolley with the opener carriage.
You can do it manually by sliding the door along the track until the attachment point is retouched. Or, you can use your garage door remote control and it should reconnect automatically.
In both situations, you will hear a loud click at the attachment points. After doing so the emergency release cord should be reset and ready to be used again.
