These garage door sensors are safety devices included in almost every garage. The devices are usually mounted six inches above the ground. Their primary function is to prevent garage doors from closing on people, especially children or pets by accident.

You can test the functionality of your sensor by putting an object in front of it like a roll of paper towels. If it fails to stop easily before it crushes the object, we might recommend making an appointment with Schaefer Door Company.

The detectors may become out of line and the door will not close even if there is something in its way. Your garage door can stop mid-operation if it has electrical problems. These malfunctions can be anything from minor inconveniences to major safety issues. It is highly advised to get a professional to examine it immediately due to the potential danger involved.

Garage door track repair in St. Charles. Garage door tracks that are bent or not aligned properly will cause problems opening or closing the garage doors or may become immobile and unmovable. Schaefer Door Company’s technicians have the knowledge and experience to repair your garage door tracks professionally.

Every overhead door system must have metal tracks to guide it into the open or closed positions. The tracks house the rolling wheels and provide a secure and safe way for them to move when the garage door is open or closed. These metal tracks are thin and pliable, so they can be easily bent or damaged. 

It can take a lot of time to replace the garage door track. To install a track completely, you will need to remove one side of your garage door and secure it sufficiently to protect the tracks, rollers, hinges, or track. It may make sense to remove the entire door and install the track.

When Should Garage Door Tracks Be Replaced?

Garage door tracks made from metal can be damaged by corrosion. Although newer garage doors tracks have been galvanized to protect them against corrosion and rust, corrosion can occur over time. This is because friction, chemicals, and road salts slowly wear down the track. Because the tracks get rusty, their rollers won’t run as smoothly. Rusted tracks can also weaken metals, making them more fragile. With each cycle of the weather, the danger of using a garage door on a track that is rusted increases. A broken or split horizontal track could result in the garage door falling onto cars or other hazards. It’s best to replace your garage door track if there is any rust.

Garage Door Roller Replacement

Because of their constant usage, garage door rollers often break or be the first thing to go after installing a new door. While they are designed to last for a few years, they may break sooner than expected. This can lead to your garage door moving off its tracks. The garage door’s rollers and pins can break when it is moving. This is dangerous because the door may be in motion. Keep an eye out for broken pins or rollers every month, and replace them as soon as possible.

A roller and pin are used to secure each garage door panel to the tracks. They guide it to open or close. A broken or damaged pin can weaken even further if you often keep your garage door open. If a panel of doors isn’t properly attached to the track, it can cause additional strain to the operator. This could lead to further damage to other components of your garage door system. Additional weight could also affect the pins or rollers.

Professional garage door technicians will assess the state of your pins and rollers. They can advise you on whether to replace them or wait for them to break down. A professional garage door repairman will be able to explain to homeowners why their pins and rollers need to be replaced.
