How to Diagnose a Problem with your Garage Door Rollers?

Before you can decide on getting garage door replacement rollers, you need to figure out if in fact they are worn out or broken.  To do this observe how your garage door opens and closes.  Usually, it will be very difficult or even impossible for the door to move.  Inspect the rollers, and if you see cracks, or chips or perhaps missing pieces, then the rollers need to be replaced.

Rollers Which Are About to Break Will Exhibit These Traits:

Dragging: The overhead garage door spring holds a great deal of tension which makes it easier for the door to close and open.  If the spring is fine and there is still resistance when you attempt to move the door, then the rollers are faulty.
Frequent Clicking: You may sometimes hear a clicking sound each time the door is closed or opened.  The clicking is a result of a misaligned piece that tries to move off track and then realigns itself. The clicking if not fixed in time can cause the garage door roller to pop out.
Grinding Noise: When you hear noises similar to grinding metal on metal, that’s an indication that the rollers so weak or worn out that they are causing metal parts to rub and create friction.  If the grinding is not fixed it can cause the tracks to break and wear off too.

What Causes Garage Door Roller Issues?

Generally, we’ve seen that it is a lack of lubrication.  Home and business owners have not been lubricating the moving parts frequently. Lubrication can make it easier for the roller to move and reduce the instance of metal on metal or plastic on metal (whichever may be the case).
Garage door rollers can also be affected by adverse weather like quick cold and hot snaps.  They cause the metal parts to expand and contract rapidly leading to misalignment.  So, you’ll want to make sure that the garage door is adequately winterized.
