Fix Garage Door

Fix Garage Door Yourself or Call a Technician?

When a garage door is not working, first you need to troubleshoot for the exact problem. Once you are done troubleshooting and have diagnosed the specific problem that needs to be repaired, always use the manual for the specific garage door opener that you have installed in your garage. Check the batteries in the garage door opener remote. If the batteries are low, put new batteries in the remote. Use quality name-brand batteries or invest in a charger and rechargeable batteries. Quite often, replacing the batteries fixes the garage door problem.

Fix garage door tracks easily by checking the tracks for dents or bumps. Use a vacuum to clear them out so you can inspect the tracks really well. To fix the tracks of a garage door that has bends or dents in them, use a wood block that fits within the width of the track. Hold the block firmly in the track and use a rubber mallet to bang the metal track back into shape.

Fix garage door light sensors by following these directions. Make sure the optic light sensors are aimed directly at each other. If they need adjusting you can fix them by jiggling them and rotating them lightly and carefully until they are well aligned with each other. If your diagnosis has found moving parts that are dry and squeaky, use regular motor oil to lubricate them. Only use a small drop of oil to lubricate the rollers. Never use grease to fix these garage door parts. If the bearings are the issue, lubricate them sparingly with motor oil. Squeaky hinges can be fixed by lightly lubricating them.

When fixing the force of the door, put a piece of 2x4 lumber under where the door hits the floor of the garage. Close the door to see if it bounces back up when the door comes in contact with the lumber. If the door does not bounce back up a little, adjust the force on the back of the housing. You can fix garage door parts easily following the manual or consult with a professional garage door company that employs trained technicians.
