Door Does Not Open
An electrical garage door opener is built with a power unit and an electric motor. The opening and closing of an electrical door is usually controlled by a wall push button or remote control. Always check the battery in your remote control first. If battery is still in good working order, you may have a bad switch. You can check the switch by unscrewing the switch from the wall and touching the two wires together. If the door does not open, you will need to buy a new switch.
Squeaking or Grinding noise when door moves
This is a sign that the door mechanism requires attention. The chain and screw can be greased with a special grease and the overhead springs can be lubricated with a lubricating spray. You can purchase this Grease and Spray at most hardware stores. As a safety precaution, always work with the door down to avoid being injured by a door suddenly being released.
Door is difficult to lift
This is a sign that the spring is broken or that the rollers are damaged or broken. Springs recoil and extend with each movement of the door. Therefore it is very important to include the greasing of the springs in your regular Garage Door Maintenance. Garage door rollers are encases in a sleeve and might corrode or rust as time goes by. They can be easily lubricated and are inexpensive toe replace.  
Door falls without warning
Garage door tracks are what keep the door aligned properly. Loose tracks are dangerous as they can allow a door to fall without warning. They are held in place by brackets that have to be parallel to each other to work properly and make sure the door is guided into its weather-stripping. Fortunately, these are not difficult to fix.

Garage Door Safety Tips

Garage doors injure thousands of people every year. Help keep your family safe with these tips.

Your garage door is the largest, heaviest moving object in your home. You don’t anyone sustaining an injury due to your garage door.

These tips, along with regular maintenance, will help keep you safe.

1. Check the safety sensors.

The opener’s safety sensors are attached to the rails on which the garage door rides or moves. The job of these safety sensors is to reverse the direction of a closing garage door if a person or animal walks under a closing garage door.

To test, push the control button to start closing the garage door. Before the door closes, place a broom or similar object in front of one of the sensors. Blocking the beam should make the door stop immediately and reverse. If the door doesn’t reverse, Contact East Side Doors and Security to inspect the garage door opener and make any needed repairs or adjustments.

2. Keep passwords secret.

Our Garage Door Openers have let you set one-time and user-specific codes. This improves safety and restricts access to your main password.

3. A garage door is not a toy.

Teach kids that the garage door is not a toy and that they should not hang on the door or play with the remotes or keypads. Make sure that the wall control and garage door opener is at least 1,5m from the ground.

4. Watch your fingers.

Sensitize people (grownups and children) to keep their hands away from the joints between panels of the garage door when it’s closing. Some newer doors have pinch protection to reduce the risk of serious hand and finger injuries.

5. Test the auto-reverse.

Most garage door openers have reversing mechanisms that makes doors change direction when they touch something in their path. It is a good idea to regularly test the auto-reverse by placing a roll of paper towels in the center of the door, push the button to close the door. If the door doesn’t reverse when it touches the paper towels contact our garage door repairs team immediately.

7. Test the force.

The door should stop if you try to push it down when it’s rising or push up on the bottom of the door as it’s lowering. If it doesn’t, you might be able to fix it yourself by adjusting the force settings.

If your garage door isn’t up to today’s safety standards or is damaged beyond repair, contact our garage door maintenance team so that we can help.
