Replace the motor! I had one of these. We replaced it with one of the Merlin garage door openers - https://www.gomerlin.co.nz/garage-door-openers/ which are much faster.

 

Its just a slow motor on these Doorworks ones.

A 2JZ, RB26DETT or SR20 should do the trick.

Its either designed that way or a failing motor.
If it's a design issue then is there a way of putting a larger cog on the motor?
I assume the motor drives onto a chain.

I doubt there is a motor speed control - but hey - I could be wrong....

They're just slow. Keen to replace ours at some point, but it still works so not a high priority.




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

You'll need to provide a bit more detail than that, e.g. do you need to open the door more than once? Do you want to be able to close it again afterwards? How close are neighbouring properties? etc.

You could also use a Burmeister & Wain, which could pull the garage and/or house out of the way of the car. You'd just have to rig up some return pulley system to move it back over the top of the car afterwards.
