Types of Garage Door Maintenance

Where is the failure?
The garage door spring system is the most common problem with the garage door system. The automatic garage door operator or the garage door opener is the second most common failure. If the door can be closed, for safety purposes we will shut the garage door first, to prevent door damage or human heart. The door can be slammed shut strongly with no control is something that can make damage to the garage door itself and or physical damage to a person.

Garage Door Repair in Pittsburgh, PA

First we need to isolate the two systems, the garage door and the garage door opener in order to diagnose a failure. In order to do that we disengage the garage door opener from the garage door itself by pulling down the red rope that hangs down from the garage door opener. Then we will start to exercise the garage door opener up and down from close to open position without the door load. When pressing the wall button or the remote controller in order to open the garage door, the opener's carriage should move backward toward the motor and stop right before the mechanical hard stop.

When you press again the garage door opener wall button or the remote controller the garage door's carriage should move toward the door and should stop about 2"-12" from the hard stop. If all functions properly as described diagnose the garage door itself. To check the garage doors functionality you need to open and close the garage door manually. Hold the door from the inside by the handle, if there is no handle you need to prevent moving the door when your fingers are between the hinges or the sections as they can pinch your fingers. When you lift the door you should let the door stay still when it's 2-3 feet from the ground, and the garage door should stay still without drifting down or up if the proper springs are installed. Now move the door all the way to open position and down to the ground, the garage door should move smoothly without any obstruction during the travel and without using excessive force.
