Common Garage Door Issues

Experiencing a problem with your garage door? Many people use their garage door multiple times each day, so it’s not surprising for issues to occur from time to time. Some garage door issues are relatively minor, and you may be able to resolve them with a DIY fix. However, other issues are more complex and potentially dangerous and should only be resolved by a trained and experienced service technician. See below to learn about some of the most common garage door issues.

Broken Spring

Garage door springs can break at any time without giving any indication that it’s about to happen. Springs are rated in cycles, with the average spring having a lifespan of 10,000 cycles. You can upgrade to higher-cycle springs that will exceed 10,000 cycles.

Broken Roller

Broken garage door rollers will not allow your door to go up or down smoothly. They also will create a gravelly noise when the door is moving.

Rusty or Broken Cable

The most common breaking point on a garage door cable is at the bottom where it attaches to the bottom section of the door to lift it. This area is vulnerable to rain and salty winter slush, which causes rust. The rust will eventually cause the cable to break. To inspect the cable, open the door and then look at the point where the cable connects to the door to see if there is any rust. If there is rust, contact us for replacement. Garage door cable replacement should only be performed by a trained professional because the cables are under an extreme amount of tension and could cause injury.

Opener Issues

Many problems can occur with a garage door opener. The easiest one to fix is misaligned safety sensors. Just check the alignment by seeing if the sensor LED lights are on. Some brands have one red light and one green light, while others have one green light and one orange light. Problems that would need to be resolved by a technician include circuit board issues, wiring issues and gear/motor issues.

Bent Door Tracks

Bent garage door tracks prevent the door from going up and down smoothly and can cause the door to get misaligned. To address this issue, contact us.

Drum Issues

Problems with garage door drums are extremely rare, but they should be addressed if they occur.

Door Panel Damage

Garage door panels can be damaged when an object makes contact with them, like a car. A poorly installed opener can also sometimes damage the top panel, which is why it’s important to have your opener installed by a trained professional. Garage door panel replacement should also always be performed by a trained professional.

Damaged/Failing Weather Stripping

Damaged or failing weather stripping will prevent the garage door from making a solid seal when closed. Replacement should always be done by a trained professional to ensure it seals properly. Also, spring tension sometimes needs to be removed to properly install the bottom seals.

Neglected Maintenance

Neglecting to have your garage door inspected and tuned up can result in minor issues turning into more costly, major issues. You should have an inspection and tune-up performed yearly by a trained professional to ensure that your door is in good condition and will continue to function properly. But keep in mind that springs are unpredictable and can break at any time as mentioned above.
