5 Risks of a Broken Garage Door Sensor

Responsible for monitoring the status of your garage door and determining whether it is safe to operate, garage door safety sensors are an essential component of garage door safety. If a sensor detects hazardous conditions, such as an obstruction in the door’s path or low voltage from the power source, it will prevent the door from closing or opening completely. When these sensors fail, any of the following become a possibility:

1. Injury to People and Pets

If the garage door sensor does not work correctly, it may fail to detect objects in the way of the door as it closes. This error could result in serious injury if a person or pet is trapped between the door and the frame.

2. Security Risks

A broken garage door sensor can pose a severe security risk for your home and family. You may find the door will not close properly or will open randomly without warning, leaving you vulnerable to intrusion, theft and other crime.

3. Complicated Emergency Response

In an emergency, your garage door may not open or close, which could be dangerous for you and your family. If you need to enter or exit your home quickly, a broken sensor could prevent you from doing so.

4. Further Garage Door Damage

A broken garage door sensor can damage your garage door further and cause it to get stuck in the open or closed position. The repetitive action of this malfunctioning mechanism may cause stress fractures in your door, which can then cause damage to other parts.

5. Damage to Your Vehicles

When your garage door sensor breaks, it likely won’t detect when your car approaches the opening of the garage. If the sensors signal to close the door prematurely, the impact may damage your vehicle.
