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:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
How to Fix a Garage Door Off Track
We strongly advise calling a reputable garage door repair company like Alpha C Garage Door Repairman. An off-track garage door is not a DIY project, this can be dangerous. A homeowner would be better off contacting for assistance if they have a damaged garage door spring, which is quite dangerous unless you have received training in the operation and installation of garage doors.
Every time a customer calls, one of our specialists will always advise the homeowner, for safety reasons, to NOT touch the garage door. Now, a simple repair requires a big repair or possibly a garage door replacement.
**NEVER TRY TO FIX A GARAGE DOOR THAT IS OFF-TRACK YOURSELF.
EXTREMELY DANGEROUS. COULD CAUSE SERIOUS BODILY INJURY OR DEATH! **

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.
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.
