Merlin Garage Door – Advise

Even with regular maintenance, garage doors can sometimes get stuck, refusing to move either way. A halfway jammed door causes security risk by allowing access to the garage and home if it’s attached. A jammed garage door requires prompt assessment so you can decide whether you can repair it yourself or need professional help.

There are four common reasons that cause your garage door to be stuck. Here are the four different Merlin garage door items you should inspect before calling Metro Garage Services

  1. Lodged  Merlin Garage Door Track

Garage doors often get jammed by obstructions in the track. Have a look and see if anything (a toy, broom etc) fell and is now stuck in the track that is causing it to be lodged. You can fix it easily by identifying the object and removing it.

  1.  Merlin Locked Garage Door

Even something as simple as garage door being locked can be the reason of your problem. Some types of garage doors have a “full lock” option which enables you or anyone else, to lock your garage door from the outside. This could mean that anyone in your driveway could have turned your handle and mistakenly locked the door without you being aware of it. This is an easy fix by realizing the issue and then unlocking your garage door.

  1. Broken Springs

There are two types of garage door springs, torsion and extension ones. The first type is located horizontally at the top of your garage door. The second type are the springs that are located on either side of your garage door. Check to see if a piece of them is hanging on the side of your garage door to indicate if those are broken. If so, then replacing them is a dangerous process. You should seek professional assistance to replace them. The best way is to call Metro Garage Services.

     4. Merlin Garage Door is Off Track

The problem is very easy to be diagnosed as the garage door rollers are literally off track. If your garage door panels are not damaged, then luckily you don’t need to replace your door.  However, you most likely will need professional service to put them back on the track.
