When a door is off track the resulting issues vary from having to take apart the entire door and reinstall to simply having to put a few rollers back into the track.
Regardless of the issue it is usually a good idea to call a garage door company to help with this because almost always the spring(s) are still under tension and attempting to fix the problem yourself could result in injury or at the very least additional damage to your garage door.
You can typically find cables on each side of the garage door.
Cables can come off the drum or unraveled for several reasons including lost tension in the spring over time, incorrect springs installed by incompetent Garage Door Technicians or an object obstructing the path of the door.
When a cable comes off the drum the fix can be as simple as loosening the drum and installing the cable back onto the drum.
But sometimes the repair can be more complicated requiring work on both the left and right cables and drums and or sometimes the spring itself.
If you’re not certain please call Ken Davidson Doors and let us help you get your door operating better than ever.
Although Ken Davidson Garage Doors only sells Liftmaster garage door openers we service all makes and models including Genie, Craftsman, Chamberlain, Marantec and more.
Never underestimate the power of an upgraded nylon 13-ball bearing garage door roller.
We love the response we get from our customers after they’ve made the decision to upgrade from standard metal garage door rollers to our lifetime warrantied nylon garage door rollers.
The difference is simply amazing.
The new nylon garage door rollers are quieter, smoother and will last much longer because they are a sealed bearing which means that dust and debris can’t get into the bearing area causing the bearings to eventually seize which in turn places additional stress on the garage door springs.
Have you ever thought much about how your garage door operates?
My guess is probably not.
If you’re like most folks you just know that when you hit the garage door button on the wall or press the garage door remote in your car that your garage door goes up or it goes down; until it doesn’t any more.
