1- Old Springs? Have your springs inspected by a professional technician and replaced if needed. If your door has two springs, replace both, even if one is not broken. This will not only prevent any damage caused by the breaking of the second spring, but also keeps you door working efficiently.
2- Squeaky Springs? Springs can squeak and be noisy, this is caused from normal use. Use a spray-on-lubricant (recommended especially for garage doors). If the noise persists, call Hamburg Overhead Door for service.
3- Cables Worn? Visually inspect the cables that attach the spring system to the bottom brackets on both sides of the door. If these cables are frayed or worn, they are in danger of breaking, which can cause injury. These cables should be replaced only by a trained technician.
4- Safety Cables? If your garage door has extension springs, you need a safety cable that runs through the spring and secures to the wall or ceiling at each end. When your garage door is down, extension springs are under high tension. If the spring breaks, it may cause injury.
5- A Do-It-Yourselfer? Installing a garage door can be very dangerous and is not recommended by a novice. We recommend that our trained technicians do the installation for you. If you attempt the installation always follow the manufacturer's installation instructions carefully.
6- Struggling Door? If your door does not go up and down smoothly, you may have an unsafe condition. Even older door systems should operate smoothly.
7- Watch Your Fingers! Every year, many unsuspecting homeowners injure their fingers by placing them between the door sections to pull down the door. Never place your fingers between the door sections, use the handles or the safe gripping points!
8- Tamper Resistant Brackets? Since the bottom brackets on a garage door are connected to the door's springs, these brackets are under extreme tension. They should be adjusted or loosened by a trained door technician.
9- Openers and Control Boxes? Mount your control box at least five feet from the ground, out of the reach of small children. Do not let children play with the garage door remote controls and discuss garage door safety with them.
10- Regular Service? Your garage door is probably the largest moving part in your home and is typically used every day. Over time, parts can wear out and break, creating potential safety problems. To avoid safety issues or injuries Call Hamburg Overhead Door today for a safety inspection.

Yes, LiftMaster supports HomeLink. If a car was manufactured before 2006 with HomeLink you will be required to purchase a repeater kit in order for their car to work with the LiftMaster 8550 opener. These kits are available from Hamburg Overhead Door at no charge with the purchase of a new LiftMaster 8550 opener. If your car was purchased between 2006 and 2012, you can check to see if the car is compatible with the 8550 by clicking on this link http://www.homelink.com/program/process if not you will need a repeater kit. In 2013, HomeLink should be compatible with all new LiftMaster garage door openers and will not require a repeater kit. If your car has Car2U (which has three yellow LED lights and can be found in some Ford and GM products), which is not supported by HomeLink or LiftMaster, the customer will have to purchase a repeater from Car2U. LiftMaster does not stock or manufacture these repeater kits, Car2U is not associated with LiftMaster or HomeLink, and LiftMaster has no agreement to work with Car2U.
