Roller Shutter Fault Finding & Problems London: If your roller shutter has stopped working all of a sudden, then it might be having a fault. Such problems call for Roller Shutter Repair. Many common faults occur in shutters. Check them for preventing an emergency shutter repair.
The most common shutter problems
1. Power Source
Before doing anything, it is recommended that you check the power source. Make sure you know if it is turned off or on. Take notice of lights which indicate this status.
2. Emergency release chain
Checking the emergency release chain is just as crucial. The chain provides relief during the emergency of shutters. Check that the mechanism is working the way it should be by pulling the emergency release chain. It is working well if the door responds. If not, get in touch with the repair team of your shutter provider. This feature is immensely crucial in times of emergency so don’t be careless about it.
There might be the presence of dirt or debris in the tracks and rails. Constantly keep a check on it and clean it if you see any debris. If you leave it as it is or don’t get it cleaned, it might obstruct the opening and closing operation of the shutter which will result in increased chances of malfunctioning of the shutters.
If you have been operating the door frequently within a short period, then there are chances of the motor getting overheated. If that is the case, refrain from using the door for some time. This will give the motor time to cool off.
5. Proximity Sensors
If your door shows the problem of opening only halfway, there might be a problem with the proximity sensors. They might be malfunctioning due to presence of dirt or incurring damage. Check the proximity sensors and make sure they are dirt and damage-free.
6. Door Structure
Keep checking the door structure for the presence of any buckles or dents regularly. They might be easy to knock out for some people. However, if you are not among them, then it is better to call a professional to get it back into a functioning state.
7. Clash of the code
The shutter might have any of the problems listed above or else it might simply be a case of code clash. Very often it happens that your neighbor’s shutter has the same code as yours.
