About Garage Door Repairs
There are three components to a garage door:
1)The door itself ( Alu-Zink /
Wooden Panels )
2)The Garage door hardware
3) The motor for your Garage Door
In this section, we'll help you look, repair or prevent garage door problems Garage doors operate on spring tension or torsion. The door moves on metal tracks on the garage walls, and a heavy spring or springs provide the power. In most cases when the door doesn't work easily, the springs are the cause, the springs are the most important and MOST DANGEROUS component and its always best to have a qualified "DoorTronix" technician repair,set or replace them for you. Check the metal tracks inside the garage. Look at the mounting brackets that hold the tracks to the walls. If they're loose, tighten them. Working inside the garage with the garage door closed, examine the tracks for dents, crimps, or flat spots. If there are any damaged spots, pound them out with a rubber mallet, or with a hammer and a block of scrap wood. If the tracks are badly damaged, they should be replaced.
Check the tracks with a level to make sure they're properly aligned. Horizontal tracks should slant slightly down toward the back
of the garage; the vertical sectionsnof the track should be exactly plumb. Both tracks must be at the same height on the garage
walls. If the tracks are not properly aligned, loosen but do not remove the screws or bolts that hold the mounting brackets, and
tap the tracks carefully into position. Recheck the tracks with the level to make sure they're in the right position; then tighten
the screws or bolts at the mounting brackets.
DO NOT TRY THIS WITH A SINGLE GARAGE DOOR. THE SPRINGS ARE TENSION ARE GREAT Clean the tracks with concentrated household cleaner to remove dirt and hardened grease. Clean the rollers thoroughly, and wipe both tracks and rollers dry. Do not leave any soup inside the wheels or tracks, the soups is sticky and tends to collect dust and rust the bearings or metal parts
Lubricate both the tracks and the rollers using garage door lubricant spray or powdered graphite on the tracks, and household oil
or silicone spray on the rollers. If there are any pulleys, lubricate them with the same lubricant you used on the rollers. Check for
loose hardware, and tighten as needed. On swing-up doors, check the plates where the spring is mounted to be sure the
screws are tight and tighten any loose screws. On roll-up doors, check the hinges that hold the sections of the door together;
tighten any loose screws, and replace any damaged hinges.Sagging at one side of the door can often be corrected by servicing
the hinges. If a screw hole is enlarged, replace the screw with a longer one of the same diameter, and use a hollow fibre plug,
dipped in carpenters' glue, with the new screw. If the wood is cracked at a hinge, remove the hinge and fill the cracks and
the screw holes with wood filler. Let the filler dry and then replace the hinge. If possible, move the hinge onto solid wood.
Check the springs. On swing-up doors, the spring on each side is hooked into holes or notches. To adjust the tension, move the spring hook to the next hole or notch. On roll-up doors, the spring on each side is controlled by a spring cable on a pulley. To adjust the tension of this type of spring, pull the cable farther through the plate above the door, and reknot the end to maintain the tension. Caution: Do not try to repair a Spring or replace it. The tension is so great that the spring could injure you. For doors with this type of spring, call Absolute Garage Doors
Broken Garage Door Repairs
Many of us actually don't think or actually realize the hard work our Garage Door/s do. Lifting and closing a large door every day, a couple of times a day over and over again. Your garage door Motor really doesn't do much work. Its is just a helper to the real worker. The spring! Springs are used as the door is lowered down. The springs are stretched out and when it is time for the door lift its actually the spring that is doing all the work For this reason, most garage door Motors are only rated at 750 - 1000 Newton units of power which is, in fact, more than enough to help the springs do their job. It doesn't take much power to lift up a garage door that is being pulled up by a spring that is under extreme tension or torsion.
How do garage doors work?
There are only two types of garage doors - The Garage Doors that operate by tension springs which in most cases are Single
sectional garage doors or Double Tip up springs, and those that operate by torsion springs which in most cases are double
sectional or caravan single sectional. However, some company to use the torsion system for standard single garage doors.
Tension springs look like normal springs and are located on the left and right sides of the garage door above the horizontal tracks.
As the garage door will lower/close you will see them stretch out and expand, and contract as the garage door opens. Torsion
springs are the second type of garage springs - they look like tightly coiled springs above the garage door, and as the door lowers
or raises, they twist to contract or expand. Most garage door fails due to but is not limited together 3 reasons.
(1) A broken Spring
(2) Lack of maintenance
(3) A broken / faulty motor
Broken springs can be difficult to replace and should not be attempted if you do nothave the proper skills and tools because it requires you to remove and replace high tension springs under significant compression.
Replacing torsion springs on a broken garage door
Torsion and tension springs require professional replacement. Torsion springs are designed to last for about 10,000 cycles, or about 8 -10 years of normal use. After that, you are justwaiting for an accident to happen. When a torsion spring breaks, you will often hear a loud cracking or pinging sound,but you may not notice it at all You may simply notice that your garage door opens and closed much more slowly than before (assuming it is a double garage door with 2 springs - if it is a single door with one spring, the door will not open or close at all. Anyone asking for R4000.00 or more is ripping you off. When replacing torsion springs, you do have to replace both springs if you havea double garage door, or a single spring if you have a single door.
Garage Door Maintenance
One way to avoid costly garage door repairs is by regular maintenance. A garage dooris a moving mechanical system, the largest
moving system in your home. Therefore it requires professional attention and maintenance. over time your garage door can easily get out of alignment.
Garage Door Won't Open
Sometimes when your garage door won't open, it is an even simpler explanation. You may need to reprogram your remote or
replace the battery. Your electric garage openeris tuned to the specific frequency and code of your remote opener - if the code or battery is messed up, the fix could be as simple as an R50.00 battery. Start with the battery when you do your diagnostic work and proceed from there -- you will need to inspect the springs if you suspect it is a larger problem, but this is a simple 2-minute task. Broken springs will be obvious, and the most telltale sign is limited power and speed in opening and closing the garage door. If the motor does not respond at all after replacing the remote battery and trying the manual switch, it is most likely a problem with the actual garage door opener motor unit, which might require replacement R2500.00 - R3500.00
