Maintenancetips and advice

Lubrication

Keep rollers, hinges and tracks lubricated especially in winter months. It’s a good idea to lubricate the parts twice a year - Spring and Fall. This is important to help the garage door from sticking to the track. Even if you a rarely use a garage door, you should check it periodically as you will be aware of any issues that may develop reducing the chances of having needed repairs due to neglect or possibly minor problems becoming bigger and more expensive complications.

Visual Inspection

Inspect the Drive Track and any other components every month to ensure everything works as it should. When the door is misaligned with the drive track it can become a more serious issue so confirm everything is working in proper order.

Safety Feature(s) Test

The garage door is one of the heaviest objects in your home and as such can be dangerous if damaged or misused. Test the reverse safety mechanism to confirm the photo-eye or edge sensors works correctly.

You can test the sensor by placing an object or piece of wood under where the door meets the floor of the garage. If the door does not automatically reverse when striking the object, your garage door should be serviced by a trained technician.

You can check a photo-eye by waving something in front of the beam once the door has started to lower. Again, if the door does not reverse under this photo-eye inspection, it should be serviced immediately. Sometimes photo-eyes can be fixed by simply wiping the lens with a dry, soft cloth.

Manufacturers were required by law to include these safety features on all openers after January 1, 1993. If your door does not have this safety feature it is recommended that you replace the older system.

Hardware Inspection

Visually inspect the door springs, cables, rollers and bearings, chain or belt, hinges and all hardware. Look closely for any wear and tear, and pay particular attention to the sound of the motor and door when opened to ensure everything is working as it was designed to do.

Balance Test

Test to ensure the garage door is balanced. This is easily accomplished by disconnecting the opener and manually lifting the door up. If the door doesn’t open easily and smoothly the door is most likely out of balance and requires servicing to prevent more expensive fixes if left working improperly.

Maintenance Frequency

The above maintenance should be done monthly, while lubrication should be carried out semi-annually. By performing the (above) maintenance you can extend the life of your garage door and possibly eliminate minor problems becoming major issues.
