How to Replace Garage Door Sensors: A Step-by-Step Guide

Garage door sensors are an essential safety feature that prevents your garage door from closing on people or objects. If your sensors are not working properly, it is important to replace them as soon as possible.

Garage Door Sensors

Here is a step-by-step guide on how to replace garage door sensors:

  1. Unplug the garage door opener. This will prevent any mishaps while you are working.
  2. Remove the old sensors. Use a screwdriver to loosen the wing nuts that secure the sensors to the brackets. Then, carefully pull the sensors off the brackets.
  3. Disconnect the sensor wires. Use a wire stripper to remove about 1/2 inch of insulation from the end of each wire. Then, use a wire nut to connect the corresponding wires from the old sensors to the new sensors.
  4. Mount the new sensors. Slide the new sensors onto the brackets and secure them with the wing nuts.
  5. Align the sensors. Make sure that the sensors are aligned so that the light beam is uninterrupted. You can do this by shining a flashlight through the beam.
  6. Plug in the garage door opener and test the sensors. Close the garage door and place an object in the path of the light beam. The garage door should not close. If the garage door closes, you need to adjust the alignment of the sensors.
