GARAGE DOOR PROBLEMS THAT OCCUR MOST OFTEN!
1. THE GARAGE DOOR WILL NOT CLOSE COMPLETELY
Does your door drop halfway before becoming stuck? If it only partially opens, what then? In any scenario, a door that won't rise and fall should be the first sign of trouble. An issue with your door's balance, the track itself, the garage door opener, or even the associated springs may cause malfunctioning doors.
2. OUTDATED OR BROKEN DOOR SPRINGS
The torsion spring is what allows your door to rise and lower. If the spring snaps, your door won't open or close. If you're home when it happens, you'll know the spring broke because you'll hear a loud noise that sounds like a firecracker; if you're not home, you'll still be able to spot the issue because the spring will probably be hanging down.
The springs might sometimes break, but they stretch out with time. For example, you might observe that the door doesn't stay open or moves more slowly than it ought to when this occurs.
3. WORN BEARINGS OR ROLLERS
When your door moves, if you hear popping or squeaking, there might be an issue with the rollers. While the squeaking sound suggests that the rollers and bearings need lubrication, the popping sound indicates that the rollers may appear to be worn out.
4. IMPAIRED PHOTO EYE SENSORS
As a safety measure, photo eye sensors are fitted to stop your garage door from closing on items or people in the way of the door. These door sensors do a lot to protect your family and your vehicles, but they can prevent your garage door from closing properly if they break down or gets clogged.
5. PROBLEMS WITH GARAGE DOOR OPENERS
Sometimes the issue may not be with your garage door. It's with your garage door opener instead. There are various typical issues with garage door openers that you could run into. The opener's transmitter or the remote control batteries may malfunction. If your door doesn't open, the issue could be with your garage door opener.
