Difficulties with opening and closing, strange sounds and malfunctioning controls are among the common problems with overhead garage doors. The good news is that every problem has a solution. Find out more about common issues and their solutions.
You have to lock the door to keep it closed or it is extremely hard to open? Then the door is out of balance because there is too much or too little tension in the torsion spring. The solution involves adjustment of the component so that it gets the optimal amount of force to operate the door. If there is any damage such as chipped, dented or deformed sections, the spring requires timely replacement.
Steel panels may get rusty. Dents are also common issues. The repair involves removing the rust and straightening the panels. Rust remover usually works well and there is no need for using steel wool or another abrasive tool. With exterior grade paint, the door gets proper protection. If the bottom seal is worn or damaged, it should be replaced to stop water from getting into the garage and causing trouble.
The opener doesn’t start with the remote? Try the other controls to find out if the issue is with the motor or with the clicker. If the opener starts smoothly and works properly with the keypad and the wall button, then the issue is with the remote. If battery replacement doesn’t work, the remote requires repair or replacement. Minor electronics problems can be fixed, but if the device has failed completely, it has to be changed.
If the door is shaking, check it for twister and broken roller stems. If it makes popping sounds, the wheels and stems are most probably worn. In either case, the rollers should be replaced with new ones. There are two options - parts with steel wheels and nylon wheels. The nylon wheels are quieter and don’t need lubrication, but they may not last as long as their counterparts.
