Why my garage door broke down
Garage doors work for years without interruption, but eventually, they will break no matter what quality of parts you have and the maintenance that was done; unfortunately, nothing lasts forever.
Broken Springs – torsion or extension, they will snap or come off the cones; this happens because of metal fatigue, which is caused by wear and tear or to simplify it – your everyday use of the garage door.
There is no way to avoid this, but you can proactively change the springs.
Change them before they reach their breaking point(most common 10k cycles).
How will I keep track of the cycles??! you may ask, some smart garage door openers have the cycle counter option built-in.
Or you can have a guesstimate calculate how many times you use the garage door a day and multiply by the number of days since installed.
Also, you can customize the springs and get high cycle springs (standard options are 25k, 50k, 100k)
Broken or snapped cables – similar to garage door springs cables snap mostly from everyday use and simple wear and tear. On the other hand, cables can come off their drums for many reasons.
here are some explanations the most common being
- interference- an object such as a broom falling behind the garage door tracks/in the way of the garage door
- wrong size springs
- an unbalanced door
- worn-out bearings
- worn-out drums
- accidental damage to the garage door sections
Broken rollers and hinges – hinges are rollers and prone to wear and tear as the move, roll and bend with every door movement and need constant lubrication and maintenance. We recommend replacing rollers with every spring replacement that should occur on average every seven years.
Hinges only need to be replaced when broken. When hinges break, there is something wrong with your garage door. Either it had been hit, or the rollers are worn out. Another reason is incorrect positioning. Hinges start from #1 at the bottom section and accending
Off-track garage doors – the stuff nightmares are made of, nothing worse than seeing an off-track door. Either at home or in your business.
It can be caused by operating a door with an opener and broken components, such as a broken spring or damaged cables, sometimes it can be caused due to damaged hinges.
always try to inspect the garage door and its components for visual signs of breakage
if you are suspecting there is something wrong with your garage, disengage it from the opener and try to operate it manually
Damaged sections or panels – Let’s face the facts accidents happen, whether its an icy driveway or you’re in a rush to get to your destination or any other reason, either way, this can kick you out of the loop. At your own risk, you can try closing your garage door manually by disengaging from the automatic garage door opener.
We always recommend calling a professional garage door expert.
Attempting to operate an off-track garage door can cause injury or even death.
