10 Common Garage Door Faults


Garage doors are complex mechanisms that can experience a range of issues. Here are ten common problems homeowners often encounter with their garage doors:

Garage Door Won’t Open or Close:
This can be due to issues with the garage door opener, the door itself, or the sensors.

Slow Response Time:
The door takes longer than usual to open or close, which can be caused by problems with the opener or mechanical parts.

Garage Door Reverses Before Closing:
This typically indicates an issue with the safety sensors. The sensors might be misaligned, dirty, or obstructed.

Garage Door is Noisy:
Grinding, squeaking, or rattling noises can be due to loose hardware, worn rollers, or parts needing lubrication.

Remote Control or Keypad Not Working:
This can be due to dead batteries, a malfunctioning remote, or issues with the opener’s receiver.

Door is Off the Tracks:
The garage door can come off its tracks due to broken cables, misalignment, or impact.

Broken Springs:
Torsion or extension springs can break after prolonged use, making it difficult or impossible to open the door.

Worn or Broken Rollers:
Rollers can wear out or break, causing the door to operate noisily or become stuck.

Sagging Garage Door:
This is more common with wooden doors and can be due to the door itself warping or hardware becoming loose over time.

Garage Door Opens Unevenly:
This can happen if the springs or cables are not evenly tensioned or if the tracks are misaligned.
