Quick Facts - Off Track Garage Doors

Off Track garage doors in Phoenix can cause problems when you cannot get out of your garage. Don’t worry Arizona Garage Door & Repair experts are here to help 24 hours a day 7 days a week for Phoenix AZ and all the Metro surrounding Areas. There are few reasons that a garage door may become “off track”. A common cause of a garage door off track is one or both of the garage door cables breaking. A garage door cable may break after years of use and natural wear and tear. Typically, a cable will break only on one side of the garage door track at a time and during the process of opening. Aside from the garage door cable breaking there are two other ways a garage door may become off track, sometimes garage doors come off track due to an obstructed path or the garage door being hit by a car or other powerful force. Most garage doors today have electric eyes to insure the path of the door is clear however some older garage doors may not. A garage door without electric eyes allows the opportunity for a trash can, ladder, bicycle, car, etc., to be left in the path of the garage door. Once the garage door makes contact with the object it could knock the door off track. A garage door can also become off track from an impact to the front or back of the garage door. In example, if someone should attempt to back out while the garage door is closed or by driving into the front of a closed door.

If your garage door is off track, in the interest of your safety, do not attempt to move it or repair it yourself. Our professional, background checked Sears Garage Doors technicians are trained in handling these situations. Garage Door Springs and Cables are under extreme pressure. Garage Door related accidents have been known to cause serious injury and even death.

Garage Door Safety Month

In light of garage door safety month, we decided to dedicate this post to ways you and your family can stay safe when using your garage door. As technology has progressed over the years, it has become more and more advanced in its safety features. For example, the automatic retractable door helps ensure that the garage door will not shut on your car or on any small children. With the new and very helpful innovative garage door tools, we are better able to assist and take care of you!

Here are a few ways we can help:

1) We need to check your garage door censors

The alignment of your garage door censors is a very important factor in making sure your garage door retracts in a proper amount of time (while causing little to no damage). These censors are located at the bottom of your garage door tracks closes to the floor. That means, they are more susceptible to being bumped, accidentally, causing misalignment within your garage door censors. Once we come out and check your garage censors, you shouldn’t experience any more difficulties with your garage door retracting.

2) Talk to your kids about safety

Even with a flawless retracting test, it is important to inform your children (Especially the ones that can reach the garage door opener) that closing and opening the garage door is not a game and it is not safe. Our hope is that by educating even our little ones about garage door safety, it will help us decrease the amount of garage door accidents and injuries.

3) Don’t wait till it’s too late

We have seen some people postpone garage door repairs simply due to a lack of urgency. We strongly encourage you, even with minor garage repairs, to not wait and to contact us immediately at the sight of and off track garage, broken spring, or a squeaky garage door.
