Your new garage door is probably the biggest, heaviest, mechanical item in your home. Regular annual garage door maintenance can help you prevent accidents and extend the life of your overhead door, door hardware, and garage door opener. After your install, your installer should show you how to perform a safety test or you can read your owner’s manual. Most manufacturers recommend testing your door for safety every 30 days.
If your garage door will not close all the way, it is helpful to know what to do and to be able to trouble-shoot while waiting for your service appointment. Ask your technician at your next service call for a walk through of how to get your door down safety.
Sometimes, your door will not close correctly because a little spider is holding it up. They can build webs in or around your safety photo eye sensors causing your sensors to detect that something is in the way of the door’s path. Check in and around the area of the sensors for dust, debris, and webs.
