Garage door off track

Questions and Answers

Garage door chain got off track? My garage door off track, i put the chain back on, and the door only goes half way now…any ideas

admin You re installed your chain when it was half way between it’s starting or stopping position. You need to undo the chain and reset your opener to the open or closed position, then reatach the chain witht he door in the proper corresponding position.
Or you can call a service person to come out and do it for you.

Overhead Garage Door? We have an Overhead door on our garage. It came off the track on one side and we got it back on, but now it won’t close completely. There’s about 12″-18″ of space between it and the floor and then it starts to go back up. We’ve cleaned the sensors.

admin Your door is out of alignment. This is either due to a bad tension spring (usually at the sides of the flat track under the ceiling, or a torsion spring (above the door header). I suggest you call a company who services/installs overhead doors.
Since they know how to quickly repair either type door, it will probably cost you less than you trying to figure it out. Your garage door could fall completely out of the track and damage your car or injure you.
It’s hard to diagnose a problem without seeing it, so take the smart road and call a pro.

My garage door opener only brings my door about 3/4 of the way down then comes back up.? My garage door opener only brings my door about 3/4 of the way down then comes back up. Sometimes the wheels come off the track. How can i fixt it?

admin The opener is bringing the door back up because there is to much resistance or the door or wheels in the track are hitting something. You need to adjust the track so that the wheels dont catch or drag. Then release the door from the drive and move the door up and down by hand. If the door works well and you still have problems you can adjust the senitivity of the opener.
