Each door opener must be checked regularly for damages and changes in process to ensure a smooth operation. In checking a Linear garage door opener, there are things one must consider to ensure the door remains in perfect working condition.
Each month, release the garage door opener and test the door by opening and closing it manually. Take note of some changes in the operation, such as a squeak, a snag or an unusual noise when the door is in movement. If you notice anything unusual, the door is probably in need of professional maintenance work. Raising the door halfway up allows you to see if the door is balanced or not. Weather changes can affect the performance of a door, so make sure to check it as soon as the season changes.
Every half a year or so, check the chain or belt (if you have a chain-driven or belt-driven door opener). These components are the ones that encounter problems over time since they bear the most work when opening and closing your garage door. The chain and belt loosens in a few years and may affect the door’s performance. If this occurs, they only need to be tightened, but if you do not know how, better to delegate the job to a professional.
