How Long Should an Operator Last?

A residential garage door opener has a life expectancy of approximately 10 to 15 years. However, a commercial overhead garage door operator may have a shorter life span due to the extra pressure from larger, heavier doors and more frequent usage. Regular maintenance and the timely installation of replacement parts are essential for maximizing your operator’s longevity.

Signs You Need to Replace an Operator

Some indications that you may need an operator replacement include:

  • The door won’t open or close or becomes stuck during a cycle.
  • The unit produces unusual noises or excessive vibrations.
  • The door suddenly reverses direction.
  • You have an older unit that experiences frequent performance issues.
  • You notice a misaligned or unbalanced appearance.
