Dear customer my name is***** the expert who will attend you today, I am reviewing your query at the moment you are viewing this message, if you wish you can tell me your name, to know who I have the pleasure to talk to, also if possible I would like you to send me a photo or video in which your fault is better appreciated, it would help a lot to improve my final answer. If you have done a previous check or diagnosis in which you have obtained any error codes, that would also be helpful. Please note that the system will automatically offer you a service call, this has an additional cost to the initial cost of the consultation, and not in all cases it is necessary, so I recommend you to dispense with the call for now, we can continue through this chat without any problem. Thank you very much for trusting in the just answer.

Dear customer it is curious that there are three doors that do not open, normally this means that the actuators of these doors are defective, but it is very strange that they have been damaged simultaneously, normally one actuator is damaged first and so on several can be damaged in a short time, in my opinion you could be experiencing a problem with the electrical wiring which goes to the doors that are not working correctly, it would be good to check with a tester or multimeter to the actuators of the doors that are not working and check if voltage is reaching them, if not you could be experiencing a problem in the wiring.
