What Causes The Garage Door To Go Off Track?

There can be many reasons why a garage door goes off track. Emergencies happen every day. Below is a list of possible causes:

  1. When backing the car out of the garage, the door may get hit. Many times we push the button to open the garage door and it may not open all the way. You may not look to make sure the door is open. Bang! a loud noise and off track goes the garage door.
  2. If the car was not pulled into the garage and if the garage door opener settings were maxed out the garage door hits the car and goes off track.
  3. A Broom, Bike, trash can, or some object was leaning on the side of the garage where the garage door closes. When the garage door is closing the object got in the way and forced the garage door to go off track.
  4. If your garage door is 10+ years old, the possibility of the metal getting fatigued is greater. You may see splits in the garage door in the middle sections. If the garage door splits the sections begin to bow in and eventually one side or the other will fall out of the track. Hinges may start to ripen or break.
  5. The torsion cable(s) are loose (wires on the side of the garage door). If the cable falls off the torsion drum it can make the garage door crooked. This may cause a roller or two to come out of the track.
  6. If the torsion springs (that big coil(s) above the garage door are not properly installed or calibrated if the garage door is manually lifted (by hand) too fast the garage door can get off track.

**Call us for a FREE, On-Site Estimate for exact pricing. 

When the time comes to reconnect your garage door, simply pull the emergency release cord back toward the door to re-engage the spring lever. You can then manually move the door to the opener carriage or use the doors remote and it will connect automatically.

While you can Manually Open a Garage Door that has a broken cable, we don’t advise that you do. The steps we’ve outlined should only be used in emergencies with a great deal of caution. The spring and the cables are a safety mechanism and are there for a reason, i.e. prevent the door from falling.

One of the most common problems homeowners encounter with their garage doors is a door that’s stuck in the open position. The first thing to check when this happens is the photo eye sensors placed on either side of the garage door.

Alpha Garage Doors Repairman offers warranty on all parts & labor at no additional cost! it’s part of what make our company special making sure we stand 100% behind the job we preformed.

A garage door can still open if the spring is broken, but it will take some manual effort. Using your garage door opener could burn out the motor since the broken spring makes the garage door heavier. We recommend not attempting to open your garage door if it has a broken spring.

Garage door opener repair can also be more expensive than replacement. So if it’ll cost you less anyway, it’s best to purchase a new garage door opener that will also be higher quality and work better.

 
 
If the garage door won’t open or close, begin with these garage door troubleshooting steps: Make sure the opener is plugged in and the garage circuit breaker is in the correct place. Make sure your door has not been manually locked by mistake. Replace the batteries of the keypad or remote control.

Loose tracks: The vibration of your door can loosen the bolts that hold the tracks in place. Force and impacts: If you hit your garage door with your car, you could send rollers off-track. Dirt and lack of lubrication: Built-up dirt and grime along with a lack of lubrication can throw rollers off-track.

Over priced. Charged $30 service fee even after they came and fixed the garage door. Website clearly states this would be removed if you have the door fixed. Emailed them two time to have this fee removed. Ignored both times.Was told there is a 5 year warranty. Wouldn’t be provided anything that stayed this warranty on paper or by email.Would avoid these guys.

Called Alpha about a broken garage door spring. They sent a service technician out within 1.5 hours. The service technician Segev was excellent. He replaced both springs with a superior product, completed another minor repair to the door itself, and provided a complete maintenance service as well in under an hour. The final repair bill was reasonable considering the work done and the parts and labour warranty provided. I would definitely use them again.

Fast, same day service. Needed a spring fixed on garage door but ended up fixing the whole door because with my luck the other spring would have broke soon after, so why not have both sides with new springs! Decent and comparible prices. Friendly staff. Great work. Recommended!

Called mid aft inquiring about new garage door opener/installation to replace older one with broken sprocket. Called back quickly, tech on site in aft, ran through options and prices, and new opener was installed, door spring and hinges touched up...by late aft. In today's world, fair prices (not cheap..but fair value), quality work, and actual customer service are rare...but Segev and company had all three so quite happy.... Definitely recommend.

Very good service that’s done on the same day I called. Segev (the technician) gave me a call that he is coming, he arrived on time, inspected the broken garage door spring, explained to me exactly what he will do and gave me the quotation. The work was done efficiently and they even gave me a 2 year material/labor warranty. Will recommend their service for anyone.

Today we discovered that one of our garage door springs broke after the cold weather. I phoned Alpha C and they had a technician come within 2 hrs of my call. The quote was very reasonable and he noted the previous spring was smaller than usual and should have lasted about 12 years, not 8 years.Gilly did the work in less than half an hour. The door works fine and very happy about his work. An overall great experience!

My experience with Alpha C Garage Door Repair was great! The service was extremely fast, as a technician was sent to my house within 1 hour of calling. The service is reliable and efficient. A nice plus was the 10% discount and 1 year service warranty. I would highly recommend!!
Gilli came to my house in the middle of a snow storm at night and fixed my garage door, which appeared absolutely destroyed. He managed to salvage the panels and most of the hinges to make it work. Another company would have just told me to replace the panels and charge me thousands on the spot. It's great to know there are still honest trades out there.Gilli worked diligently, patiently, efficiently in -19 to get the job done, saving my garage from burst water pipes and saving me a huge amount of anxiety.Amazing work. 10/10. Hire this man.
