Signs Your Garage Door Isn’t Working Properly

 July 10, 2019

Garage doors are typically used multiple times a day, each and every day. They add convenience, while also providing security for your home. Although garage doors are used on a routine basis, regular maintenance for them is often overlooked or forgotten until the door breaks down or malfunctions.

 

Garage doors will inevitably show signs of wear and tear, but remembering to maintain and care for the garage doors of your home can help you save money and improve its function, efficiency, and even it’s lifespan.

Common Signs That A Garage Door Isn’t Working Properly

 

  1. The Door Won’t Open Or Close

 

The most obvious sign that a garage door isn’t working properly is if the door will not open or close or that will not open or close all the way. Start by checking to see if there is anything blocking the sensors or the batteries are dead in your opener remote, because these are common culprits for garage doors that won’t close. If the sensors are clear and batteries are working, but the door still does not move, there could be a larger issue requiring professional repair.

 

  1. Noisy Door

 

Garage doors that are making a lot of noise or making excessively loud noises are not working as well as they should be. Noises could include grinding, rattling, screeching, or more. Garage doors can become noisy from loose hardware such as hinges or screws, damaged rollers, bent tracks or misalignment, or even from a cracked door.

 

  1. Garage Door Opener Doesn’t Work

 

As mentioned earlier, dead batteries in a garage door remote control is a common cause for doors that don’t open properly. If batteries aren’t to blame, there could be a problem in the wiring or other components of your garage door opener.

 

  1. Door Off Track

 

A door that is off track will not operate properly. This can be caused by bends or obstacles and should be addressed quickly by a professional before the door falls.

 

  1. Door Opens Or Closes Randomly

 

If your garage door is opening without you opening it, there could be a problem with the opener, emitter, or it could even be due to a broken spring. A garage door that opens when it shouldn’t cannot provide the same level of security for your home and should be addressed by a professional garage door repair company as soon as possible.
