Common Garage Door Problems
Below are a few of the most common garage door issues homeowners encounter.
Noisy Garage Door
A common problem with garage doors is that they may start to squeak or make other strange noises. The culprit of these issues is typically the rollers, end bearing plates, hinges, and other moving parts used to open and close the door becoming worn out. If this happens, it is vital to have them replaced as soon as possible so that the noise does not become too annoying or cause further damage to your door.
Garage Door Cable Repair
Alternatively, if your garage door isn’t opening or closing correctly, the problem could be with the cables that operate the door. Over time, these cables can become frayed or even snap, preventing your garage door from functioning correctly. Remember, cables hold all the door weight and are under high tension. Never touch the cables if you are not a professionally trained garage door technician
Garage Door Is Heavy
Your garage door requires a balance check-up and tune-up every 6-12 months. If the door is balanced, it should not fall or jump up. Basically, it should stay at any position. If the door falls itself, then torsion springs need immediate attention. First, it will damage the garage door opener because of excessive pressure. Second, there is a high risk that the spring will snap very soon, making the door inoperable when you really need your car to go somewhere.
Garage Door Stuck
There are many reasons, such as off-track, broken cables, broken springs, bad rollers, or opener issues. First of all, stay away from the door if it is stuck. Disconnect the door opener from the power outlet to prevent from using it. Second, call a garage door professional to diagnose the door and find the exact problem.
If your garage door is having trouble rolling up or down, it may be time to replace your rollers. The first sign you need to replace garage door rollers is if your door starts to squeak or make other strange noises. We recommend replacing rollers instead of repairing them. High-quality rollers not only make the door quiet but also much smoother and safe to use. Avoid using rollers with a short stem without bearings. They are a common reason for a door off-track.
Garage Door Opener Issues
The garage door opener and the garage door itself are two different mechanisms. The garage door opener helps to move the door up and down using a wall panel or remote controls. Which is so comfortable for everyone. Let’s be honest. We are used to it, and some of us even don’t know how to use the garage door manually.
It isn’t very reassuring when the garage door opener doesn’t respond to the remote or wall panel. It also may go up, but on the way down stops and goes up again. Or the door opener makes a sound, but nothing is going on. The problem might be related to electronic issues or simple adjustments. Safety sensors alignment might be an issue as well. But don’t forget to check the door itself. Not properly working door may cause the opener to malfunction.
