In this blog, we will be going through some ideas on how to resolve this and giving you more insight into what might be the problem.

 

Noises

Noises emanating from your electric garage door indicate there is an underlying issue. Squeaking may mean the rollers require lubrication or need replacing. To keep them in good condition, use a silicone-based lubricant or hire an expert to install new rollers.

If you hear a rattling noise in your roller garage door, it could mean the hardware has become loose. Try tightening up the nuts, bolts and screws to solve the issue. If you hear a popping sound every time your door opens or closes, it’s likely that the torsion springs need attention from an expert. Be careful with these, as they can be hazardous if not replaced or adjusted correctly.

 

Opening and closing 

If the garage door does not open or close completely, it could indicate that the boundaries have been exceeded. Adjust the screw on the motor to make changes per your handbook to the correct settings. 

Checking for any obstructions on the tracks may be the solution. Rust and damage to the rails and rollers could also be a factor, so it’s necessary to wipe them down in case of an issue.

If that doesn’t do the trick, you might need professional help to repair or replace the springs.

If you have a garage door opening and closing too slowly, this can be a significant issue. This problem can cause a lot of frustration and make your life significantly more difficult.

Your garage door can work properly, but slowly at times. This is usually due to dirty tracks or dry rollers and is particularly common in garages that freeze during winter or become dry. To prevent this problem, lubricate the rollers regularly and keep the tracks clean.

If you need to replace your old garage door rollers, there are many options available. You can purchase new rollers or refurbish your existing ones. If you choose to buy a new garage door, Garolla’s roller garage doors come in various sizes and colours to meet your needs. 

Throughout the course of a year, a garage door gets regularly opened and closed. This means that the rollers must travel up and down a track repeatedly. This may cause them to wear out eventually, leading to difficulty with the door. If this begins happening, you should get them swapped out immediately. Leaving them in a worn state can have expensive consequences since they might break entirely.

 

Repairs

Please don’t wait another minute before getting your garage door repaired. It’s essential to take care of the issue as soon as possible. Delaying repairs could result in more severe problems and costlier repairs down the line.

Please take action now to ensure a smooth-running garage door for years.
