Your Garage Door Won’t Open or Close Properly

When garage doors get jammed or won’t open or close properly, it will usually happen at the worst time, catching you off-guard and causing serious inconvenience.

COMMON REASONS A GARAGE DOOR WON’T CLOSE OR OPEN ALL THE WAY

Automatic garage doors differ in design, but most share similar components and systems. Both residential and commercial garage doors can run into trouble opening or closing all the way before getting stuck or reversing direction. If your door won’t open or close properly, your issue could be caused by:

  • The garage door opener: Garage door openers are responsible for movement. When these systems malfunction or their components wear down, it can cause your door to open and close improperly.

  • Broken door springs: Your garage door uses torsion or extension springs that help support the weight. If these springs snap or become stretched, your door can get stuck or have trouble closing.

  • Broken or damaged cables: Garage doors have lift cables or retaining cables installed. A broken cable can cause the door to shake, move unevenly during opening or shut faster than usual.

  • The door is off the track: The tracks keep the door aligned. If your rollers pop out of the track, you can experience excessive shuddering or shaking, or in some cases the garage door won’t open.
