Common Garage Door Problems

The average residential garage door opens and closes more than 1,500 times a year, so it’s no surprise that sometimes breakdowns happen. If your door won’t open or only opens or closes part of the way, it may indicate a problem with the track, springs, garage door opener, or the door’s balance.

Some common issues that may require garage door repair include:

Broken or Worn Springs

Torsion and extension springs help your garage door move up and down. If a spring breaks, the door usually won’t move. The sound of a spring breaking sounds a lot like a firecracker, but if you’re not around when it breaks, you might not know what’s wrong with the door. Springs also can become stretched and keep the door from staying open, or make it go up and down more slowly than it did before.

Broken Cables

Garage door cables are made of galvanized wire and are strong enough to lift and lower a door weighing hundreds of pounds. However, they do fray, corrode, and wear out over time. If your garage door cable snaps, it can be dangerous to try and open and close the door, and you may end up causing more damage. If you notice that a cable has broken or see a spring hanging down, it’s definitely time to contact us for garage door repair.

Worn Rollers or Bearings

It’s common for garage doors to make some noise when opening and closing. However, if you hear popping or squeaking when your door moves, you may have a problem with the rollers being worn out. If you hear a squeaking sound, the rollers and bearings may need to be lubricated. Our team at Jaeger Overhead Door can help you avoid these problems by performing routine maintenance on your garage door.

Door Keeps Going Back Up

If you have a door with an automatic garage door opener, the sensors (called photo eyes) on either side are designed to stop the door from closing if they sense objects or people in the path of the door. Although this is an important safety feature, it can be frustrating when sensors malfunction, and you can’t close the door. We stock LiftMaster® garage door openers and parts and can help get your garage door opener back in working order promptly.
