Keep your Garage Doors working for years with an Inspection Sheet

We encourage you to do ongoing preventive garage door maintenance to keep your costs down and your garage door functioning properly. We recommend that everyone follow standard operation guidelines to ensure that your garage door continues to function properly so refer to the garage door operation manual. For those Valuemax customers who prefer to do their own preventive maintenance, we have prepared a short and basic Garage Door Inspection Sheet to facilitate this process. This Inspection Sheet addresses all the parts of a garage door. The list will help to keep your garage door, opener, racks, and other components working well:

    Garage door opener:
  • Safety Sensor
  • Motor / Gear
  • Control Panel / Remotes / Keyless Entry
  • Boom / Trolley
  • Bellwire
  • Safety Reverse / Limit Switch

Don't try checking several items at once. It is best that you cycle your Palo Alto garage door opener several times to check for each item on the above list. Look for any part of the garage door that is binding or stops during the opening or closing process, or is loose. Also, be sure to check the safety sensor, to see that it interrupts appropriately when the beam is broken.

Garage door:

  • Door Balance
  • Tracks
  • Springs
  • Rollers
  • Cables
  • Bearings
  • Brackets
  • Panel Condition
  • Hinges
  • Pulleys
  • Bottom Weather Seal
  • Safety Cable
  • Drums
  • Strut / Truss Rod

Put your garage door in its manual mode and lift the door to check its balance. In its resting position it should only move a few inches at most. If it moves to the ground or in its upright position, it is an indication the door needs adjustment or a possible repair. Again, don't check several items at one time as you may miss a malfunction. Check each item above by running a garage door opening and closing cycle. A bent spring or uneven gaps between the coils is a clear indication a faulty spring Also look for signs of wear, stress, or tears in the metal or other places.
