Several Reasons May Cause a Garage Door to Fall off Track
Garage doors operate efficiently most of the time and have no problems. Still, the components can malfunction or wear down after a certain amount of time. Here are some of the reasons that your garage door is off track:
If you accidentally drive a vehicle into the door, it could jolt it enough that the garage door rollers come out of the tracks. Rollers are just one of the many problems that might occur, bent tracks, broken hinges, bent panels and more can all throw your garage door off track. In any of these cases you are going to need a professional to help fix the problem.
Damaged Lift Cables
If the garage door fell off track, it could be from damaged lift cables. They can get worn with age. On both sides of your door, there are heavy-duty cables. If the door is misaligned, they could break, unraveling over time until they just snap. When that happens, the door shifts to the side and runs off track.
Those horizontal tracks running from the ceiling to the floor might bend with a door that’s too heavy. The tracks themselves have to be strong and sturdy enough to hold up the full weight of the door, sometimes for extended periods of time. Sometimes, they can get bent or misaligned over time and usage.
