If your garage door has come off its tracks, it’s important to address the issue immediately, as operating the door in this condition can cause further damage and potentially pose a safety hazard.

These type of repairs should be left to the trained professionals at Habpro. If you decide to proceed on your own, follow the steps below at your own risk.

Here are the steps you can take to fix a garage door off tracks:

  1. Stop using the door: Do not try to operate the door if it has come off its tracks. This can cause the door to become further damaged and increase the risk of injury.
  2. Disconnect the opener: Do not pull the release cord, instead unplug the garage door opener from the power outlet. This will prevent accidental operation of the door.
  3. Inspect the tracks: Check the tracks on both sides of the door for any damage, debris or obstructions. Clear out any debris or obstructions and straighten any bent sections.
  4. Re-align the tracks: Use a rubber mallet and a level to gently tap the tracks back into alignment. Make sure the tracks are properly secured to the wall.
  5. Check the rollers: Check the rollers to ensure they are properly seated in the track. If any rollers are damaged, they will need to be replaced.
  6. Test the door: Once the tracks are straight and the rollers are in place, test the door manually to ensure it is moving smoothly. If everything looks good, reconnect the garage door opener and test the door again.

If you’ve read the above and decide this type of repair is not for the amateur, give us a call for same day service. One our expertly trained technicians will arrive on time, thoroughly inspect all facets of your door, including the cables and make the necessary repairs promptly.

Broken, Frayed or Stretched Garage Door Cables

Besides your garage door meeting an obstruction when operating, the #1 reason for it to go off track is a cable problem. As cables naturally wear through normal usage, they will become dry and brittle, this will lead to fraying.

Once the garage door cable starts to fray it will either stretch or shrink, cause the cables to be two different lengths. This will cause the door to cock to one side and bind during operation. As the cable continues to deteriorate and breaks, the door will bind to the point where it comes off the tracks.

Habpro recommends routine inspection and lubrication of the garage door cables. We always recommend replacing both cables when needed, this will ensure proper operation of your door in its tracks.

Remember, working with garage doors can be dangerous, especially when they’re off their tracks. If you’re unsure about how to proceed, it’s best to call Habpro, the garage door repair professionals in Flowery Branch, GA today!
