Garage Door Sticks Open

Sioux City Garage Door Is Sticking

Your garage door not working properly can really slow your day down. If your garage door is sticking, try some garage door troubleshooting options before you decide if you need to call American Certified Services, Inc. in Sioux City.

Troubleshooting

Some issues that could be causing your garage door to stick when opening are having weak batteries in your remote garage door opener, not having enough lubrication on the track, or an unevenly hung door. Check the batteries, sensors, and switches first. If you don’t have a remote garage door opener, make sure there is nothing in the way of the wheel track on your garage door. Switching out the batteries and clearing the garage door track is the easiest fix for your stuck Sioux City garage door.

Sticky tracks, wheels and chains often serve as culprits for a stuck garage door; however, with some lubrication to these parts, your garage door will be operating properly in no time. Lubricating the wheels and tracks of your Sioux City garage door every six months will help prevent sticking.

Another common cause of a garage door sticking when opening is your garage door was not installed correctly and it is unevenly hung. One way to check that your garage door is evenly hung is to look at all the cables and springs holding up your garage door to determine if they are even in length and they have the same springiness from side to side.

If it turns out your garage door appears to be even, your batteries are fresh in your garage door remote, and you are still experiencing a sticky garage door, give American Certified Services, Inc. a call!
