Absolutely do not try to close the door or open it further. Unplug your garage door motor from the outlet to prevent accidental operation. Do NOT attempt to pull the emergency release cord.

We know that when your garage door is stuck open, your home is not secured, this is where your patience is required too leave it alone and wait for a service technician to arrive.

We always have a tech on call in the Braselton GA area, so you won’t have to wait long. We’ve been solving problems like this for over 45 years in Hall and the surrounding counties and cities.

Here are the general steps to take:

  1. Stop using the garage door: If your garage door has come off its tracks, stop using it immediately. Continuing to operate the door can cause further damage and may be dangerous. You could also destroy your door and make it necessary to purchase a whole new door.
  2. Disconnect the garage door opener: If your garage door is automated, pull the plug. This will prevent the opener from attempting to operate the door while it’s off its tracks.
  3. Inspect the tracks and rollers: Check the tracks and rollers to see if there are any obvious signs of damage or wear. If the tracks or rollers are damaged, they may need to be replaced.
  4. A trained professional will need to reset the door: To reset the door, they’ll relevel the door and gently lift the door back onto the tracks. Do not attempt to do this yourself, trying to put the door back on track without the proper knowledge and tools can get you hurt.
  5. Once we put the door back in the tracks, we will test the door: to ensure that it’s operating smoothly and without any strange noises or issues. If the door still has problems, it may need to be further adjusted or require additional repairs.

It’s important to note that attempting to repair a garage door off its tracks can be dangerous and should only be done by a trained and experienced garage door technician. For the best professional help with a garage door off its tracks, contact Habpro, the garage door specialists in Braselton today!

Some other preventive measures you can take is to have your garage door and opener serviced at least every other year. Keep all garage items, brooms, tools, rakes, trash cans etc. away from the garage door tracks. Anything that interferes with the movement of your door can cause it to come off track. Proper lubrication and good working wheels will also help. Sometimes if the torsion spring breaks it can make the door jump its tracks. To learn more about your springing system, click here.

Frayed, Broken or Stretched Garage Door Cables

One of the most common causes for your garage door to go off its tracks is a frayed, broken or stretched cable. It’s important to routinely inspect and lubricate the cables. If a garage door cable is starting to fray it should be replaced by a trained professional immediately.

When a cable is stretched it will cause the door to cock to one side and will progressively get worse until it fails. It’s imperative for proper operation and longevity that both cables are the same length and match.

Also a shout-out to Jared for his installation work...you know you're going to get quality work from a Jared...definitely don't settle for Jerrys or Joshes or Jerrods. Thank you Habpro for getting our garage doors back in business.

Bill responded with in 30 minutes of me asking him to see if he could fix a sagging overlayed 16x7 garage door. 6 other garage door companies all said I need a new overlay door. Approximately $6 thousand dollars. Bill look at photos I sent him and had one of his guys Chuck there the next morning. Fixed the door for less than 3% of what the other guys wanted. He’ll get my business when I need that new door. Honest and great people! No joke!!

Bill and his team were professional and on time. Bill took the time (answered my call on Easter!) to explain the process and price before coming out. Garage door is working again and we are so appreciative!

When my garage door stopped working, I called Habpro. After asking me a few questions, the company representative suggested that I might be able to fix the problem myself. He then patiently walked me through the process of adjusting the garage door sensors. Despite my insistence on paying him for his time, knowledge, and patience, he refused any compensation. I have received services from many companies; this was the first time compensation was not expected. My garage door is working properly and my faith in the kindness of people is just a bit stronger.
