Most Common Problems with Garage Doors
- Garage Door Will Not Shut Completely
Does your door go midway down and then get stuck? Perhaps your garage door only opens part way? In either situation, a door that won't go up and down as it needs to can be the very first sign that a problem is present. Malfunctioning doors can indicate a problem with your door's balance, the track itself, the garage door opener, or even the springs attached to the door.
- Damaged or Old Door Springs
Your door goes up and down because of something called the torsion spring. If the spring breaks, after that your door can't move. If you're home when this takes place, you'll know the spring fractured because you'll hear a loud sound that resembles the sound of a firecracker. If you weren't home when the spring broke, you'd still be able to recognize the problem because you'll likely be able to see the spring hanging down. In many cases, the springs may not fracture, but they may become stretched gradually. When this takes place, you may observe that the door does not stay open or goes up and down more slowly than it should.
- Worn Rollers and/or Bearings
If you hear a popping or squealing noise when your door moves, then there might be an issue with the door's rollers. The popping noise suggests that the rollers may be worn, while the squeaking is a sign that the rollers and bearings require to be lubricated.
- Blocked Photo Eye Sensors
Photo-eye sensors are installed as a safety feature to stop your garage door from closing on top of objects or people standing in the door's path. These door sensors do a lot to secure your family members and your motor vehicles, however, if they malfunction or end up being blocked, they can prevent your door from shutting effectively.
- Garage Door Opener Problems
In some cases, the problem may not be with your garage door. Instead, it's with your garage door opener. There are a number of common garage door opener problems you may come across. There could be a problem with the remote batteries or a problem with the opener's transmitter. If your door will not open up at all, then it may be an indicator that your garage door opener is at fault.
