Garage Door Repair – 4 Common Issues And How To Deal With Them

Stuck with a garage door that won’t work no matter what you do? Would you like to repair your garage door as quickly as possible? If yes, pay close attention here.

Fixing a garage door can be done on your own if it’s a minor issue. But with more than 90% of the cases, you will need guidance from an expert. Trying to do most of the repairs yourself might result in injury.

With that said, here are the 4 common garage door issues and here’s how to deal with them…

#1. Garage door doesn’t open or close

If the garage door doesn’t open or close, it’s likely that the opener you are using is electric. Check the keypad and see if you can reprogram your opener. Take a look at the manual given along with your garage door for help.

If you want a temporary fix for this problem, switching your garage door to manual operation will help you make the door functional. There’s usually a red cord that hangs near the opener. Disconnecting the red cord from the opener will allow you to operate the garage door manually.

#2. The garage door gets stuck in the middle

If the garage door gets stuck in the middle during operation, it’s likely that the movable parts of the door aren’t lubricated. Try applying a lubricant on the metal rollers and hinges. Use a spray if you have one. Coconut oil is also an effective lubricant for most problems.

Regular servicing of your garage door is required if you don’t want these problems to happen again. Consult a garage door repair service for servicing your garage door.

#3. Garage door falls when released

If the garage door falls when released, it’s likely that the extension springs are worn out. Replacing the extension springs will help you get your door working. Contact a garage door repair service to have the extension springs replaced.

#4. Garage door gets stuck from time to time.

If your garage door gets stuck and causes problems from time to time, it’s either because of loose bolts and nuts or the metal track has been damaged. With a steel door, the metal track damage can be undone by striking a hammer.

Try tightening the screws and bolts while wearing a helmet carefully. It might help resolve the problem. If the problem persists, consult a garage door repair service immediately.
