There are a few possible reasons why your rollers may start to misbehave. It could be the tracks themselves that are now loose or dented, preventing the rollers from functioning as normal. As the garage door moves up or down, the roller can get off track or stay stuck in the tracks. Roller issues often crop up when your rollers are damaged or were not properly installed in the first place. Sometimes, we find that the rollers and the garage door lift system are not working well because the rollers are not well-lubricated. Lubrication is crucial to keep the rollers working well and quieter, avoid premature wear and extend their lifespan for years.
