Some of Garage Door Opener Maintenance Tips:
Garage Door Opener Rollers Inspection:
Nylon rollers appear to crack when they wear out. Due to this, defects on these rollers are easy to spot. On the steel rollers, the bearings wear and the wheel starts to tilt. We easily replace the garage door components for you. Damage is likely to happen where the cable connects with the bottom roller bracket, as this is where it is most exposed to moisture.
If so, clear away the junk from this section with a brush to check the condition of the cable. If the cable is broken, we can always replace it for you.
p Garage Door Opener Spring:p
For better working of the garage door opener, always keep lubricating the springs and the chain. You also need to lubricate the chains and the springs on an annual/ monthly basis. Lubrication makes the opener's operation smoother, quieter and extends the life of both the chain and the opener. Springs wear out quickly, but an annual maintenance easily prevents corrosion.
Garage Door Balance Testing:
Another measure that your should is to check the balance of your garage door. This is because many garage door openers fail due to lack of the balance of the door, since this exerts pressure on the garage door opener. The garage door is first closed, and you unplug the opener for it to be hand-controlled. The door must close with little effort and resistance.
If it doesn't, do not hesitate to call us and have it adjusted.
The next important thing we would recommend you to undertake is to perform a one inch reversing test when we repair your garage door opener. The process will start with placing a 2 by 4 flat object on the floor in the door's way just before activating the door.
If it doesn't stop and reverse after it strikes the wood, the opener should be disconnected. This means the opener is faulty and requires repair.
Test the Manual Release Handles
This feature allows you to open the door by hand when the power is off or the opener is malfunctioning. We will help you review the manual for operation instructions.
