Standard Garage Door Maintenance

If you're not experiencing issues with your garage door, preventative maintenance is recommended once annually for normal use. If you use your garage door frequently, you might require more frequent maintenance or servicing. But, if you have any safety concerns or suspect any problems with your garage door, stop using it and have a professional come out and inspect it.

Signs You Need Garage Door Service

Below are some signs that you shouldn't wait for your regularly scheduled garage door maintenance appointment, but rather you should get on the phone now and have a technician come out and take a look. These are signs your garage door could be in need of repair.

Sagging Sections

Check and test your garage door's balance at least once a year. This will involve you disconnecting the door's opener and operating the door manually. Bring the garage door down about halfway and leave it like that. The door should not continue rising or falling. If it does, there's potentially something wrong with the mechanics of your door. Don't check or attempt to repair any of the door's components on your own, as this could be dangerous.

Slow Response Time

Usually, it shouldn't take more than a second or two for it to open or close after you press the garage door opener. Once you press the opener, your door should begin opening or closing smoothly without any delay or hitching. If you notice there's a delay in its operation, it might indicate a problem with either the opener or the door. You should have a garage door technician come out and inspect it.

Malfunctioning Photo-Eye

The photo-eye is responsible for keeping your door from closing if something is blocking the infrared beams or an object is passing through. They're essential because they reduce the risk of accidents. However, a photo-eye can be sensitive and if not lined up correctly, it could keep your door from closing. Another way the photo-eye could be malfunctioning is if there are dirt and debris on the eye. If you've lined up the photo-eye and you've cleaned any dirt and debris off it and it's still malfunctioning, call in a professional.

Roller Issues

The rollers keep the door running up and down its track smoothly. But, rollers can become:

  • Broken
  • Bent
  • Worn

This can make your garage door noisy or stop it from functioning altogether. It can also cause bent hinges. You would need a roller replacement garage door repair in this case.

Broken Cables

The pulley and cable system of your garage door's operation is a complex system. The cables can break off the pulleys. Fixing this yourself, even though it's an inexpensive job, is complicated and dangerous and isn't recommended.

Keep in mind, your garage door is the heaviest and largest moving part of your home. Any type of repair or service to it can be potentially dangerous and it's never recommended to try any repairs yourself. If you're in need of any type of garage door service, be sure to call in the garage door specialists at Rissland Garage Doors.
