Your garage door opener is the device that is situated on top in the middle of the tracks that your automatic garage door rides up and down on. It is usually held there by some bracing or it sits on a platform.
If you are like most people, you probably don’t realize how much you rely on your garage door opener until it suddenly stops working one day. Having to get into and out of your car to open the garage door can be a major inconvenience. In some cases, you may be able to repair your existing garage door opener. In other cases, however, you may need to replace it all together.
