If your sliding door is stuck and won't open or close in Spokane Valley, you may need to take some steps to get it back in working order. Dust and debris can easily accumulate in the horizontal tracks of sliding doors, making them difficult to open and close. To help your door move more freely, you should use a silicone-based lubricant. Once you have applied the lubricant, you can freely move the door to open and close it.
When you are finished, make sure the door is in the down position before reconnecting the automatic door opener. If your garage door needs repair, it is important to disconnect the automatic door opener before attempting to move it manually. This is because if the garage door spring breaks, it could cause the entire weight of the garage door to collapse. To disconnect the automatic door opener, use the emergency disconnect cable which attaches to the opening carriage. Once you have reset the emergency disconnect cable, you can move the garage door manually.
