Care and Maintenance of Your Garage Door Opener

Care and Maintenance of Your Garage Door Opener:

A garage door and opener, like any product with moving parts, requires proper maintenance and care to maximize the convenience and safety they provide.  At All Access Garage Door Services, we are committed to assisting our clients in knowing Garage Door Safety and the necessary maintenance to preserve your well-being and convenience. 

This guide is intended to assist you toward that end.

Garage Door System

* Do not attempt to perform any repair on your door and related components or remove any of the parts.  Doing so can cause serious injury or damage if not preformed properly.

  1. Every 6 months, lubricate hinge joints with a light silicone-based lubricant.  Be cautious not to use alcohol-based lubricants as they will dry out critical parts.  Hinge joints are where the two sides of flanges connect to one another.                                                                                                                                                             
  2. Do not lubricate rollers and track.  While many believe this is required, it is only a short-term fix to a potentially more significant problem.  Lubricating rollers and track attracts more dirt and grime.  Over time, this will contribute to part failures


  • All Access Garage Door’s roller are sealed and self-lubricating!
  1. Every 6 months check the “balance” of your garage door to insure proper spring tension.  
  1. Disconnect the emergency release of the operator trolley (usually a red string) by puling down on the string handle.
  2. Lift the door manually to the halfway point. A balanced door should stay at that halfway point without moving up or down.  if your door does not stay at this halfway point, call us as an improperly balanced door can cause damage to your opener.
  3. Reconnect the door by aligning exterior trolley with inner trolly and allowing the release to “catch.”

Electric Door Opener

  1. Chain and Screw Drive openers should have light lubrication on the chain rail and screw shaft with a silicone-based lubricant every 6 months. Be sure to only spray the chain rail or the screw itself.  Belt drive operators require lubrication only on the rail.
  2. Safety Eyes:  the safety eyes are required by Federal Regulation to cause the door to reverse should an obstruction occur int he door’s down path.  These eyes send and receive an invisible beam of light that when interrupted, prevents the operator from closing the door.
  3. Emergency release:  This is controlled by the rope (usually red) which hangs from the trolley.  If trolley moves but door does not, check to ensure the release is engaged.

*the most frequent cause of operator problems is improper alignment of safety eyes.  Check the following before calling for service:

  1. Are the eyes obstructed by any object
  2. Have the eyes been misaligned due to an object of individual “bumping” the eyes?
  3. Is direct sunlight “blinding” the eyes?
  4. Is there any dust or debris on the lens surfaces?
  5. Are any of the safety eye wires loose or disconnected?
