Jammed Doors: Do you feel like your garage door has turned into a block of ice and wouldnt move? Cold weather can do this to your door. The moisture during the winter season causes the wood on the door to swell and also freezes the tracks. The solution is to increase the heat in the garage for about 30 minutes to loosen the tracks and the door as well. The heat will take away the moisture. If there is no heating equipment in the garage use a blow drier or vacuum blower to do the job. After opening the door clear the ice and water that has collected beneath the door.
Garage doors for a long time were manually operated forcing the driver to stop the car and come out of the cart to open the door and the take some time to close it once they have driven the car into the safety of the garage. All these steps made old type garage doors very inconvenient as compared to the modern garage doors. With the increase in population and the amount of activity that every individual has to take part in many people do not have the time to perform all the above procedures just to be able to pack or leave their packing.
Check the Safety Features: Every once in a while ensure that the safety features of the door are working properly. Modern garage doors are built with cutting edge technology for safety such as alarms and closing/opening features that cannot be breached. If the safety features are not functioning properly the door itself will not work. Check the settings of the door using the manufacturers manual. Routinely Check the Opener: You may be using a remote voice recognition or vision recognition technologies for opening the door. Sometimes when the door refuses to open the problem may lie with the opener. Conduct routine checks to ensure that the opener is working properly especially after returning from a holiday or when you have not used the garage for a long time. If there is a problem then you need to contact a garage door repair service.
