Garage Door Opener Maintenance
There are basically two types of garage doors. They are either operated manually or automatically. However, it is very difficult to install a garage door since it is the largest of all the doors in the house. The automatic doors are normally very heavy while the manual ones are light. An automatic garage door functions with the support of electricity. However, when there is no electricity, the automatic door changes into a manual.
The main components of a garage door are the opener and the door itself. Garage doors operate on spring tensions; they either roll up or swing up in one piece. The metal tracks on the door help the door move upwards and the heavy springs provide the power. The door repair can be done in the following ways.
- Check the metal tracks in the garage if they are loose and tighten the bolts. Check the tracks for dent and lightly tab them with a rubber hammer. If they are completely damaged you can replace them.
- Both tracks should be on the same level. If they are misaligned, align them properly and tighten the bolts.
- Clean the tracks.
- Check if the plates of the swing up doors are loose. If they are loose, tighten them. If the wood is broken on the hinge, replace it. Do not use garage doors with a torsion spring at the Center as they can cause injury. A professional will be better to handle it.
Garage doors are maintained in the following ways:
- They should be lubricated on the hinges and roller tracks. Wipe the torsion springs if they are rusty.
- Wipe everything clean and then apply light oil.
- If rollers are stuck, use some kerosene with old toothbrush into the cracks.
