General Maintenance Sell Sheet

ROUTINE MAINTENANCE ONCE A MONTH (Review your owner´s manual for the door)

Visual Inspection
Look at the door springs, cables, rollers, pulleys, and other door hardware for signs of wear. If you suspect problems, have a qualified person make repairs.

 

Door Balance

  • Periodically test the balance of your door.
  • Begin with the door closed.
  • If you have a door opener, use the release mechanism so you can operate the door by hand when doing this test.
  • You should be able to lift the door smoothly, with little resistance. It should also stay open around three or four feet above the floor. If it does not, it is out of adjustment. Have it adjusted by a qualified service professional.

 

Reversal Test

Make sure your opener has a reversing feature. If a reversing feature is not present, the opener should be replaced. Garage door openers manufactured after January 1, 1993, are required by federal law to have safety features that comply with the latest UL (Underwriters Laboratories) 325 standards.

Test the reversing feature every month

  • First, test the balance of the door. If your door is properly balanced, proceed.
  • With the door completely open, place a 1-1/2″ thick piece of wood (a 2″ X 4″ laid flat) on the floor near the center of the door.
  • Push the transmitter or wall button to close the door. The door must reverse when it strikes the obstruction.
  • If the door does not reverse, have it repaired or replaced. have a qualified technician adjust, repair, or replace the
  • opener or door.

 

Force Setting Test

Test the force setting of your door by holding the bottom of the door as it closes. If the door does not readily reverse, the force setting may be excessive and need adjusting. See your owner´s manual on how to make the adjustment.

Additional Safety Devices

Many door openers are equipped with additional safety, like photo eyes or edge sensors, to protect against entrapment. Keep in mind that adding more safety devices will not make an old opener meet the current UL standards. Make sure the additional safety devices are properly installed and adjusted (see owner´s manual).

Lubrication

Regularly lubricate the moving parts of the door, but do not lubricate plastic idler bearings. Consult the door owner´s manual for the manufacturer´s recommendation.
