New Clickers and Receivers
Clickers, also known as remotes and transmitters, are use primarily in cars to allow homeowners to open their garage door while pulling into their driveway. Clickers of all models are available, including Chamberlain, LiftMaster, Sears, Craftsman, Genie, Genie Intellicode, Linear, Linear Delta, Allstar, MVP, Multi-Code, Digi-Code, and Stanley.
A single receiver is needed for each opener - multiple clickers can be programmed to work with each receiver. Standard transmitters run at $35.00 a piece, and standard receivers for all models run at $45.00 a piece. Standard service work rates of $88.00 apply for installing receivers and programming clickers.
Safetey eyes are typically attached to brackets at the bottom of the garage door tracks. The eyes send a beam between each other; if the beam is broken or is not received, the opener will reverse and the door will open. This is a safety feature that helps prevent damage to property and life that may find its way under the door as it closes.
Holding down the button to close the door can override the system. Often the eyes need to just be cleaned or realigned rather than needing to be replaced. Replacement eyes cost $50.00 per pair (not sold individually) and are installed at the standard labor rate of $88.00.
Genie Coupler Replacement
This coupler connects the motor shaft of the opener to the screw shaft of the opener rail. Genie opener couplers cost $5.00 to replace plus $88.00 for labor.
Included in the service charge is a free inspection of your opener and garage door to look for any other problems and to find anything else that needs to be replaced at the time. You can also receive free tips on how to prolong the life of your opener and garage door.
Genie Limit Switches
The limit switches on Genie openers determine when the opener is done raising or lowering the garage door. If the up limit is bad, the trolley hits the opener, stopping at a bolt on the opener rail and often breaking the light bulbs on the opener. If the down limit switch is bad, the opener tries to push the door into floor. Since it meets resistance, the opener will reverse and reopen the door, not letting it rest on the floor.
We charge $15.00 for limit switches and $88.00 for the installation of the part. Other basic opener and door review will also be performed to look for other problems with your garage door and opener.
Chamberlain / Sears / LiftMaster Limit Switches
The limit switch on Chamberlain and Sears garage door openers indicate when the opener is done raising or lowering the garage door.
Over time, the limit switch can corrode or have dirt on the contacts that keeps the opener from realizing that the garage door is open or closed. If this is the case, we charge $88.00 to clean your Chamberlain / Sears limit switch.
If the limit switch needs to be replaced, we chaged $30.00 for the part plus $88.00 for labor.
Along with getting your opener working again, we will examine your door and opener to look for other problems that already exist or issues that may arise in the next few months or years.

The clutch on an opener is a safety device that keeps the opener from working too hard to open or close a door. Over time, the clutch will wear out and slip, not opening or closing the door.
We charge $14.00 for just the clutch, and $135.00 for the full clutch assembly, along with $96.00 per hour for labor.
Circuit boards in operators have to function properly in order for the opener to continue to raise and lower the door. If a board goes bad, it usually needs to be replaced and cannot be repaired.
We charge $100.00 to $150.00 for circuit boards plus $96.00 per hour of labor. We will also look over your door and operator for free, looking for anything that may be wrong or that my cause problems in the near future.
The relays on older operators do not comply with UL standards and need to be replaced with newer relays. By the time the old relays go bad, the motor has usually also gone bad. In most cases, then, the best option is to replace the whole operator.
If you have an operator with the newer covered relay contacts, we typically charge between $500.00 and $600.00 to replace the relays.
The smaller relays, pictured here, are easier to troubleshoot and replace. Replacing these relays costs just a few hundred dollars.
Trolleys travel the length of the operator rail. They attach to the operator drawbar arm and the chain of the operator rail, allowing the operator to open the door.
Trolleys are replaced from $36.00 plus $96.00 per hour for labor. We will also look over your operator rail, operator, and door for any other problems and to see if there is anything that will require further attention in the near future.
Front Idler Bushing
The front idler bushing is only on openers with trolleys. It is located above the door at the end of the operator rail, allowing the chain to travel the length of the operator rail, opening and closing the door.
Replacement of the front idler bushing costs $30.00 for parts plus typically one and a half to two and a half hours of labor billed at $96.00 per hour
Capacitors in the operator assist in starting to lift your door. If the capacitor has gone bad, the motor will typically hum when you push the button to open the door. If you try shaking the door or turn the drive pulley, you can give the operator the assistance it needs to open the door. If this is the case, you probably have a leaking or exploded capacitor.
We charge $20.00 for capacitors plus about one hour to one hour and fifteen minutes plus travel for labor billed at $96.00 per hour. We can also provide free tips on how you can prolong the life of your operator and your door.
The limit switches on operators indicate to the operator when the door is open and closed. Your operator will not continue to run properly if the limit switches are bad.

We will also examine your operator and door, looking for any other problems that need to be fixed. We can also give you free tips to help extend the life of your door and opener.
