Common Garage Door Problems
Like any mechanical system, garage doors can develop issues over time. Some of the common garage door problems include:
- Trouble opening or closing. This is one of the most common issues with automatic garage doors. It could be due to a variety of reasons, such as blockage in the door's path, misaligned sensors, or problems with the door's motor or springs. To troubleshoot the issue, check for any visible obstructions in the door's path and clear them. If the problem persists, examine the sensors for proper alignment and clean them if necessary. In case these steps don't resolve the issue, you may need to call a professional to check the motor or springs.
- Broken springs. The springs are critical components that bear the weight of the garage door. Over time, they can wear out or break. Replacing garage door springs can be dangerous due to the high tension they are under. It's best to leave this task to a professional.
- Unusual noises. Garage doors can start making unusual noises due to a lack of lubrication, worn-out rollers, or problems with the opener. Regularly lubricate all moving parts of your garage door. If the noise persists, consider replacing the rollers or having a professional inspect the opener.
- Malfunctioning remote/garage door opener. This could be due to dead batteries, an out-of-range remote, or issues with the motor unit. To address this issue, replace the remote's batteries, ensure you are within range when using it, and check if the motor unit's antenna is hanging down as it should.
- Uneven door. An uneven garage door may be a result of worn-out springs or problems with the tracks. If the springs are worn unevenly, they will need to be replaced. Misaligned tracks can often be fixed by loosening the screws, aligning the tracks, and then retightening the screws.
Here are some preventative maintenance tips that can help you keep your garage doors functioning efficiently:
- Regularly inspect your garage door for any signs of wear or damage. This can help you catch problems early before they worsen.
- Keep all moving parts of the door well-lubricated to reduce friction and noise.
- Clean the tracks regularly to ensure the smooth operation of the door.
- Disconnect the opener and manually move the door halfway up. If it doesn't stay put, the springs might be unbalanced.
- If the weather stripping along the bottom of the door is worn out, replace it to keep elements out of your garage.
