For optimal performance and to avoid issues, perform a maintenance check at least once a year. This includes cleaning, lubricating, and checking for worn out parts.

Some fixes, like lubrication, can be done by homeowners. However, for more involved tasks or if you’re unsure, it’s always safer to consult with a professional.
