It is pretty hard to damage the garage door opener capacitor, although it can break down through old age. If you find that you have damaged the capacitor, you need to replace it.
Before you perform this task, you will need to ensure that you have damaged the capacitor. Not simply broken off the radio receiver or burnt part of the electrical connections.
Garage Door Opener Capacitor – What Are Its Functions?
Electrical condensers or capacitors are common circuit elements. Their purpose is to store electrical energy. And provide bursts of a power stronger than the power normally flowing through the circuit.
A capacitor has two conducting plates or surfaces separated by a dielectric, such as paper or glass. Power incident on one of the conductors can’t flow until its voltage exceeds the threshold created by the dielectric.
When the conductor discharges, power must build up once more before it discharges again. Capacitors can thus provide cyclical bursts of high-energy electricity. However, a door opener only needs one burst.
How To Replace A Garage Door Opener Capacitor?
You must first close your door before replacing the door capacitor. When you replace a capacitor, you cannot have your door open even in the slightest to stay safe.
Next, you need to extract your capacitor from the top of the door. Firstly disconnect the capacitor from the electric supply so that you can stay safe since you do not want to be touching any live wires.
Remember which wire goes where when you replace the capacitor if you remove them. Unscrew this capacitor from the wall once all wires are disconnected and similarly install the new one.
Line it up in a similar position to your old capacitor to ensure maximum efficiency and reconnect the wires. This is the final step to getting your door working again. You can now open it again, and continue with the daily function.
