"What do I do if my garage door came off the tracks?"

If your garage door came off the tracks and is stuck:

  • Do not press the wall control or pull the emergency release. You could possibly injure yourself as wel as damage the entire garage door system and motor.

  • Check to see if a cable has come loose. The door will not work properly with a loose cable. Do not touch or attempt to adjust the cables because they are under a dangerous amount of tension. If you have a loose cable, the other tight cable is under more than 300 lbs of tension.

  • Check to see if the lights are blinking on the motor. 

  • Contact a professional garage door company to look at the issue and perform the dangerous repair.
