Four Simple Steps You Can Do To Reduce Future Overhead Door Issues

Step 1: With the door closed, check the two vertical tracks inside the garage. Each door track has several mounting brackets that hold each door track to the wall. Jiggle the door track, If the brackets are loose, firmly tighten the mounting bolts at each bracket. 

Examine the door tracks for rust, and any damage that might impede the door rollers from working smoothly. Rust, commonly found on door tracks, especially at the bottom where the tracks touch the water on the floor from rain and snow the vehicles bring in. Steel wool will remove any rust from the vertical track. If the door track is bent, place a short 2″x 4″ piece of wood up against the door track and use a hammer to straighten it out. The door rollers should move freely up and down the door track. If not, replace the section of the door track. Otherwise, it can shorten the life of your opener motor or strip the gears.

A Worn Out Roller Can Shorten The Life Of Your Opener

Step 2: Check the door rollers for wear and tear by listening for unusual sounds coming from the rollers as you open and close the door. The smoother the door opens and closes, the less force it takes your opener to make it cycle. All garage  openers have force adjustments. A door in optimal conditions (balanced and no restrictions) requires less force to cycle the door and thus making your door safer to use as the door will reverse with less energy should it hit an obstacle.

 If your door has steel rollers, replace them with nylon, bearings enclosed door rollers. They are a lot quieter and will be less forgiving on wear and tear on your opener.

Quarterly Maintenance

Step 3: Thoroughly Clean the door tracks and rollers with a household cleaner such as scrubbing bubbles or Murphys oil soap to remove dirt and old grease. 

Step 4: Visually check for loose hinges and cables and tighten as needed. Damaged hinges should be replaced. On one-piece tilt-up doors, check the mounting plates where the extension spring is mounted to be sure the screws are tight and tighten as needed. For overhead or sectional doors, do not try to adjust the torsion springs. The springs are wound under enormous force, and any attempt to fix them can cause serious bodily harm. Pull the red release cord; This disengages the opener from the door. Now open and close the door manually. Does your door open effortlessly, or is it a strain to open and close? Your overhead door could be out of balance and may require new springs.

Door and Opener Repair Reviews

Garage Opener Installation Dearborn MI – 5/5 Stars “As usual a great job. We have used Five Star Doors since purchasing our home 10 years ago and every visit has been positive. You guys are a overhead door specialist, prompt, quick and professional thanks again for the great service.” Rena Harp Dearborn

Garage Door Repair Southfield, MI – 5/5 STARS -” Shane, the technician arrived on time and went to work, he replaced the springs and performed a thorough maintenance routine on the entire garage door system. I love their garage door repair, and they’re located near me.” Sherryl W. Southfield

Garage  Door Repair West Bloomfield MI – 5/5 Stars “I contacted Five Star Doors because of the quality of the reviews. Reviewers took the time and effort to write reviews with substance. Shane called me 10 minutes before arrival and arrived at the scheduled time. He quickly diagnosed that the opener gears were shot due to lifting the door with only one spring out of two. Shane provided me an estimate for two torsion springs and a new belt drive opener. No pressure to do the job that day when I told him I wanted two other quotes because it was over $500 for the two springs and opener. The two companies I called for a quote told me they had to see the door and opener in order to provide me a quote so both came that day. The first company was $300 higher and their opener had half the options as what Five Star quoted me. The second company was about $100 higher but tried to charge me a trip fee for coming out to my house. Both companies did a high-pressure sales routine which was very annoying. I had Shane back the next day to install the opener and springs and my overhead door works better than ever and I love all the features on the Chamberlain belt drive opener. Thank you, Shane and Five Star Doors.” Christine W. West Bloomfield
