There are many reasons a Garage Door will jam. First take a moment to see if there is something jammed in the track obstructing the door from opening. If there is nothing obstructing the track, confirm that the lock is not latched. Some garage doors can be locked from the outside as well so confirm you have checked all lock systems to ensure they are unlocked and ready for operations.
Next, check your springs to ensure you do not have any broken springs. There are two types of springs to look for; a torsion spring located at the top horizontially or extension springs that are located on either side of the garage door. If you do not have a break in a torsion spring, you will be able to see a gap between the springs. If the break is related to extension springs, the springs will be hanging on the side. Springs are dangerous to replace and may result in injuries if you are not familiar with repairing springs. Azle Door can help anytime.
Last thing to check for very simply is whether the garage door is off it’s track. Sometimes, the rollers on the door can break or stop functioning properly. If this is the case, a professional should assist in repairing the rollers to ensure no one is injuried.
