Kald Gart Doors: Garage Door Repair Services for Hinges, Rollers and Sensors
Calling in a garage door repair company to fix the hinges, rollers or even sensors of your garage door is something that you must do. We know it sounds like these parts are small and therefore okay for a DIY repair project. But that is where the danger lies.
Garage door systems are all interconnected; they aren’t as simple as the old models. Let’s talk about each of these parts separately.
Hinges: Hinges are an essential component of garage doors. These are the parts that ensure that the doors don’t swing when they are being opened and closed. When these hinges are damaged, wear out or rust, then your garage doors will not operate properly. In fact, it can become difficult to open or close the doors – especially overhead doors – safely.
Weak hinges can lead to other parts of your garage door also getting damaged – the roller shafts would stop sliding properly, the door opener could wear out faster, the door panels could get damaged, the roller tracks could become misaligned and so on.
Trying to replace hinges on your own is dangerous. Remember, those garage doors weigh upwards of 100 pounds. So, one single mistake could lead to very serious injuries. And if those hinges are not fixed correctly, you could end up damaging your garage doors even further.
Rollers: The rollers are also another key part of your garage door system. Without them, your garage doors would not open and close smoothly. These are the wheels that roll along the tracks that are placed on the sides of your garage door. They are attached to metal rods, which in turn are attached to the door frame.
When the rollers are worn out, they will not move smoothly along the door tracks, or they may become misaligned. And when this happens, you will find it difficult to open and close your garage door.
Rollers are moving parts and trying to repair or replace them on your own is as dangerous as trying to replace your garage door’s hinges. Remember, overhead door repair is a dangerous job, and it is best left to professionals such as Kald Gart Doors.
Garage Door Sensors: These parts work with an infrared photo-eye system. Each door will have two sensors, placed about 6 inches above the ground and facing each other. These sensors send out infrared beams to each other when your garage door is open. If there is any kind of an obstruction, they will not allow the garage door to close. This is a safety feature that ensures that no one gets hurt by a closing garage door.
Now, if these sensors are damaged in any way, your garage door may not close or will keep opening and closing. Even worse, it may close while someone is in the path of the door.
Here are some basic troubleshooting steps that you can do. You can clean the lens of the sensors, make sure that the sensors are properly aligned (facing each other), sweep the garage door area to make sure there are no obstructions because of which the sensors are not working, ensure that the power supply is on, and that no wires are loose.
If you have taken all these steps and your garage door sensors still do not work, then it is time to call professionals like us in.
