Should I purchase a new garage door opener or get my old one fixed?
LiftMaster and Genie believe it is important that all garage door openers manufactured prior to 1993 be replaced, as opposed to being repaired. This is to ensure the highest degree of customer safety and satisfaction. To learn more about our position on pre-1993 openers, click here or here.
As door openers reach the 10-15 year age, they can begin to experience any number of problems. The cost of parts and repair may not be worth continuing to put money into the old unit, much like an old car. When your garage door opener is more than 10 years old and begins to experience major issues or component failures, we recommend looking into purchasing a new opener.
Call us to discuss the options for repairing your old opener.
