Common Problems With Garage Rollers

Whether manual or automatic, all garage doors may encounter issues over time.

Whether manual or automatic, all garage doors may encounter issues over time. Without proper maintenance, these problems may lead to costly door replacement. The same applies to garage door rollers.

This article provides an overview of the common problems with garage rollers:

Wear and tear

Rollers move back and forth constantly. This eventually makes them wear down, especially if not maintained or repaired. As roller wear and tear grow, they require expensive interventions or replacement.

Improper closing action

Garage door rollers are often used daily, leading them to lose the ability to close properly. The problem may be mechanical but could also arise from malfunctioning or misaligned sensors. The best solution is to contact a professional service to diagnose and remedy the issue.

Unlubricated components

Crucial parts of the garage door, like openers, the screw drive operator, and hinges, require regular lubrication to ensure easy door opening and closing. Most lubricants can be sprayed on door components with ease. This simple action will allow the door to function efficiently and without issues.

Motor operation

Garage door motors can slow down over time. This may happen due to various causes, but it will usually have a straightforward solution. Garage rollers have limit switches on the motor, which are adjustable for removing motor-related problems. A professional must look at the motor if switch adjustments don’t produce results.

Noise production

Garage doors can start producing a lot of noise when opening or closing as the rollers wear out or become dirty or misaligned. This is especially true with older doors that haven’t been appropriately maintained. Lubricating hinges, rollers, springs, and bearings may eliminate the noise. However, professional replacement is necessary if a part is broken.

Door jamming

Jamming is an annoyance if there is a temporary cause or a more severe issue if permanent. The causes may include cables breaking, deteriorated tracks, and motor issues. The pulley could also be the cause. A qualified repair technician can inspect the door, determine why the door is jamming, and potentially remove any debris or fix parts that may be causing the issue.

Physical damage to the door

Impact or exposure to the elements can cause the door to get gaps and cracks. The seal will also deteriorate with time and use. While these issues might not immediately impact the door’s performance, they’ll make it look less presentable and allow drafts, debris, and pests to enter. However, repairs are relatively easy, and a professional garage door specialist can perform them quickly.

Proper maintenance is crucial in avoiding garage roller issues

Most of the problems related to garage rollers are the result of poor maintenance. Regular checkups and frequent lubrication are necessary to keep the door in optimal shape. Sometimes issues may arise even with well-maintained doors. In that case, it is best to contact a professional service to perform the necessary inspection and repairs.
