Working on fixing garage doors on your own and without the assistance of licensed professionals can be very dangerous to your safety. It is crucial to follow safe steps when tackling garage door issues- at the first signs of a problem: Call a professional. They will help diagnose the problem and SOLVE IT.

Common Garage Door Problems

Garage Door Fix IrvineThere are a wide variety of reasons that you may be having trouble with your garage door not opening or closing properly. Some of the first signs of trouble are scratching or squeaking sounds and slow garage door reaction time (you have to press the opener longer, or when it does begin to open or close, it is at a far slower pace or seems to almost fall down) or garage door sensors not functioning. It is important to keep an eye on how your garage door is behaving- if you can catch the problem sooner it will not only save you money and time but will increase the odds of not having to go ahead and replace the door completely.

5 Common Garage Door Malfunction Culprits

    1. Faulty Garage Door Openers- Sometimes the problem is not with the garage door hardware itself, but is related to the electric garage door opener and garage door remote control opener. These problems are primarily electrical or battery related. In some cases it is recommended that you try changing the battery in your remote control opener but it can be dangerous to deal with electric hardware on your own…(learn more about our solutions).
    2. Garage Door Jams- It can be difficult to diagnose the source of the garage door jamming without consulting our professionals. The signs of a jam are pretty obvious- you will see that your door is stuck in place and just will not open or close properly; it is important to not try to open or close the door by yourself. There is a risk of injury when trying to work with this heavy machinery…(learn more about our solutions).
    3. Garage Doors Off Track- Garage doors that are off track will often make a scratching sound that is hard to miss. If you suspect the door is off track- STOP using it immediately and give our experts a call. Operating a door that you suspect may be off track can cause irreparable damage to the track and panels that could lead to needing a full garage replacement…(learn more about our solutions).
    4. Broken Garage Door Springs- Despite the amount of machinery inside the automatic opener, the springs do the heavy lifting of your garage door. Acting like a stretched rubber band when the door is down, it’s the tension of the spring that does 90 percent of the lifting. So if your spring or springs are shot, the garage door opener will become overworked and (eventually) will be much more costly to replace…(learn more about our solutions).
    5. Damaged Panels- Damaged garage door panels aren’t just unattractive- they can lead to further damage of your garage door hardware, especially your track. A wobbly or dented door will cause strain and can ruin an otherwise properly functioning garage…(learn more about out solutions).

Moving garage doors on you own can result in severe injury or sometimes even death. There are maintenance tips you can follow to keep your garage doors performing at their best on a regular basis. Those tips are outlined below- for any issues that seem beyond the scope of these tips; contact our on call team of experts right away!

Garage Door Maintenance Tips

      1. Lubricating Squeaky Doors- It is best to use a lithium or silicone based spray lubricant to prevent squeaky garage doors. The parts of the garage door that are recommended to lubricate are the: rails, stems, hinges, metal rollers, bearings, bars and nubs.
      2. Cleaning Garage Door Tracks
        - When cleaning the garage door track you are not lubricating it! This process is pretty simple, just use a damp rag to clean any dirt or grime. It is important to do this in order to avoid the build-up of these damaging materials which can harden and make your garage door go off track.
      3. Resetting Garage Door Openers- Resetting a garage door can help tackle little issues like a garage door suddenly opening back up when you are trying to close it. The basic steps to resetting are to shut off the power, wait about 10 seconds and turn the power back on.


Sometimes, tackling each garage door problem individually can be very expensive and the sum of all of the repairs necessary will exceed the cost of installing a new garage door. When this is the case, our 24/7 professionals will honestly review this issue with you and help you obtain a free estimate for a new garage door.
