While you may be able to get your door open eventually, a number of problems need to be fixed right away before they become a safety hazard.
If Your Door Partially Closes When Opened
While it may not seem like a big deal if your garage door shuts a foot or so when it is opened fully, this usually indicates that you are having problems with the tension spring that holds your door open. The spring may simply need to be adjusted, or you may need to have the spring replaced. If you ignore this issue, the garage door could slam down at any time when the tension spring breaks completely.
When Your Door Opens Partially Then Closes
If you find yourself hitting your garage door button numerous times as your door opens partway then closes, then tries to open again, you probably have an issue with one of the garage door tracks. Even the slightest misalignment in your automatic garage door tracks can cause a problem with the door opening correctly. Check the tracks to see if there is any foreign debris in the way. Check the wheels on your garage door to see if any are loose or broken. Also, check to see if any brackets have become loose that hold your track in place. If you can’t find the reason for your door struggling to open and close, it’s time to call for a repair before you get stuck without a working door.
