GARAGE DOOR ROLLERS REPAIR

Have you been having troubles to get rid of the squeaking noise coming of your garage door rollers?

One of the most common errors at home owners make when they grease there garage door rollers.
is that they use oil, like the very popular wd40.
The problem with wd40 and oil is that they are degreasers,
they are actually taking out the grease rather helping you with the situation.
The best thing to use is the lithium based grease,
if you can’t find a lithium spray best thing will be a silicon spray,
it is not as good as lithium, but it is way better than using oil.
The lithium spray has a generous thick code that doesn’t run or drip,
like the other oil spray that can cause damage to your garage door tracks.
There is a need to oil all moving parts on the garage door,
while the garage door is manually being moved, all hinges knobs, locks and arm bar need to be lubricated.

Do we lubricate the garage door rollers?

The next thing needed to be greased is the garage door rollers,
the most common garage door rollers that most garage door companies are using are metal rollers and plastic rollers.

If you have plastic garage door rollers you can’t put grease on this because it doesn’t has ball bearings,
and they also designed to last few years, they need to be replaced every few years anyway.
If you have metal garage door rollers,
you can see the ball bearing there, exposed ball bearing always need to be grease.

BSD Garage Door Service using seal bearing rollers,
so there is nothing to grease, the ball bearing are not exposed, therefore there acquire no maintenance.

What else than the garage door rollers do we need to grease?

The other thing you will want to grease are the pulleys,
if you have pulley with exposed ball bearing,
just use a straw tube to get in there and put some inside,
after installation move the garage door up and down manually a few times.
If you have a pulley with a seal,
there is no ball bearing exposed so there is no point in greasing,
like the seal bearing garage door rollers, this seal pulley has zero maintenance.

When it comes to your garage door opener,
the most common mistake that home owners make, that they try to grease up the chain.
garage door openers chains coming out of the factory with a protective coat already on it, that should last the life of the opener motor, but still if you ever have the need for that, take a cloth, spray some wd40 on it and wipe it down,
what you want to do is to lubricate the top of the garage door rail,
that where most of the friction.

Lubricate garage door rollers - not grease.

As the garage door rollers, a nother thing you don’t need to grease is your garage door tracks,
some people might start adding oil or packing it up with more grease,
over time it picks dust and dirt to the grease and harding it like cement,
Do not grease the garage door tracks, just clean them, they need to stay clean.
