Fixing The Common Problems Of Your Garage Door
Ever wondered how to fix the problems related to your garage door? Well, I am sure many of us have and for the rest who have not tried their hands on fixing the garage door problems by themselves, here are a few tips to be followed:
Basic tools required are:
The most common issues faced while dealing with garage doors is the movement of the garage door itself. In some cases it has been seen that either the garage door does not either close up completely or open entirely or overturns before the door hits the ground level. Well, this problem can be fixed by modifying the closing limit switch or the force motor as instructed in the instruction manual that came in along with your garage door. In case if you have misplaced the manual you can always call the customer service and ask them for guidance.
The other common issue faced is either with the opening switch or the remote control. In case of an electric garage with an opening switch, check for any loose connections or wiring problems. Similarly you can also inspect the circuit breakers in the main switch of the garage. The inspection of the circuit breaker will help you rule out issues relating to blown fuse or other problems. While in case of remote operated garage door issues, your first step to check will be the batteries in the remote control itself. Replace the battery and see if it works. Try moving closer to the garage door for operating the remote and check if it works. If not your next bet will be to reprogram the control of the remote. This step resolves the issue all the times. However, in case you still fell, your garage door is not opening or closing properly either with the opening switch or remote control a professional help for the same can be taken.
The last common problems faced by owners with garage doors are the screeching noise that comes in while you open or close your garage door. This issue can be taken care by proper lubrication of the rollers and the tracks. You can lubricate them by either using silicone spray or daily household oil. Once the pulleys of the rollers lubricate it should settle the problem of screeching noise made while opening or closing the shutters of your garage door. Or in some cases it could just be the tension between the springs causing the noise, which can be fixed by adjusting the tension on the springs. Try adjusting both the springs at the same time for about 1/4 of a turn and you can lubricate the same with grease or household oil.
Well, repairing a garage door all by yourself is not a tedious job, all it requires is lots of patience and a few tools to assist. However, in cases where none of the above steps work, you can always call the garage door installation company and seek their help. Garage door issues generally cost you somewhere between $30 and $250.
