1. Your Garage Door Is Making Loud Noises

  • Grinding or squeaking. Chances are that your rollers are insufficiently lubricated or are worn out. If it’s the former, apply lithium- or silicone-based grease. If it’s the latter, call in a professional to get them replaced.
  • Rattling. If your garage door is rattling, it could be that some of the nuts, bolts, and screws on your garage door have become loose. Tighten the hardware with a wrench and socket set and the problem will likely be silenced.
  • Popping. Often, popping noises can be traced back to the torsion spring, which needs to either be lubricated or adjusted. Working on torsion springs is highly dangerous and should always be left to a professional.

2. YOUR GARAGE DOOR IS MOVING UNEVENLY

3. YOUR GARAGE DOOR WON’T OPEN OR CLOSE

4. YOUR GARAGE DOOR OPENS — JUST NOT ALL THE WAY!

5. YOUR GARAGE DOOR IS OPENING AT A SNAIL’S PACE

  • The button on one of your transmitters (the wall control, keypad, or remote controls) is stuck.
  • The opener’s limit setting needs to be readjusted.
  • There’s an issue with the control wiring or the electric circuits.
