0:00 this is the Check A Pro radio show 0:02 Checker Pro Joe has assembled a team of 0:04 pre-qualified Home Service contractors 0:06 to bring you the latest in Services 0:08 products and techniques now here's your 0:10 host the man with a hard hat and tool 0:12 belt check a pro Joe many of us don't 0:16 really understand how the garage door 0:19 works we think we do 0:21 we think that that garage door opener 0:23 just pulls that garage door up and it 0:27 pushes it down it doesn't really work 0:29 like that and so I've asked Stephanie 0:32 Carter from A1 Door Company in the 0:35 Greater Richmond Virginia area to join 0:37 me here on Check A Pro radio today 0:39 to really tell us 0:41 how a garage door works she's going to 0:45 educate us a little bit on that 0:46 Stephanie how are you 0:48 Hey Joe doing great how are you I am 0:51 living the dream thank you so much for 0:52 asking so you've been in this business 0:54 for some time so I'm sure you've gone 0:56 out to some homes you know the homeowner 0:59 you know will say you know something 1:00 like you know the garage door opener uh 1:03 isn't working well enough you know I ask 1:05 it to pull it up or push it down and it 1:07 just won't do it but it's not 1:09 necessarily the garage door opener that 1:11 has the problem maybe it's a spring 1:12 right so explain to us how the garage 1:15 door system works is pretty simple but 1:18 why don't you explain it to everybody 1:19 absolutely there's three main parts that 1:22 we get calls about I would say the top 1:24 three would be the Springs rollers and 1:28 The Operators or a lot of people call 1:30 them the garage door openers it's that 1:32 big machine in the ceiling so the spring 1:35 is what we like to call the muscle of 1:37 the door without that spring it's nearly 1:40 impossible to open the door if the 1:42 spring is broken you're basically dead 1:44 lifting the door so a little old lady or 1:48 a child or someone who can't lift up 1:51 three or four hundred pound door is 1:54 going to struggle they will be stuck in 1:55 their garage if that spring is broken so 1:58 you are basically dead lifting that door 2:00 the rollers a lot of people say the 2:03 Little Wheel like thingies is what a 2:06 customer would call them they're on the 2:08 sides of the door they're going to guide 2:09 that door up and down in the tracks a 2:12 lot of times if your door is noisy it's 2:15 something as simple as changing the 2:17 rollers to a higher quality nylon roller 2:20 it'll make a big difference and like you 2:23 said a lot of people think that the 2:24 garage door opener in that ceiling is 2:27 what's lifting the door but really 2:29 that's just the guide it's there to 2:31 guide the door up and down and lock it 2:34 in place for security it's really that 2:37 simple back when I was a kid we didn't 2:40 always have a garage door opener now 2:42 it's almost standard in every home but 2:44 you know some people had them and some 2:47 people didn't and that garage door went 2:50 up and down very easily with the spring 2:53 so the garage door opener really isn't 2:56 some Beast it's not like a really strong 2:59 motor with a strong chain or belt that 3:02 is pulling up that door it's really just 3:06 saying come on up you know we're gonna 3:08 let you come up I'm gonna pull you just 3:10 a little bit because if you're a 3:12 well-balanced door with the spring 3:13 you're gonna move easily when that 3:16 spring isn't doing its job let's say 3:19 it's broken that garage door opener will 3:21 not open that door that's right so lot 3:24 of times if the spring tension is off 3:26 it'll also it could damage your motor 3:29 because there's a gear in there that's 3:31 pulling that door up and down and a lot 3:33 of times when people Spring Breaks they 3:35 don't know so they they keep pressing 3:37 the button and they end up damaging 3:39 their operator because they're thinking 3:42 the operator is not pulling the door 3:43 when really it's the spring and also you 3:46 want to check the tension to make sure 3:47 that door is balanced because if it is 3:50 opening too hot off the ground or if 3:53 it's too heavy on the floor that could 3:55 damage the motor as well yeah it really 3:57 needs to be finely balanced most people 4:00 I talk to Stephanie in the garage door 4:02 industry tell me that you should be able 4:05 to if you disengage it from the opener 4:07 you should be able to just pick up that 4:10 door with little effort from the handle 4:12 and it should just come right up and it 4:14 should come right down without much 4:16 effort at all like a little lady can do 4:18 it that is correct yes a lot of people 4:20 don't know that but when you disengage 4:22 that motor and you open open that door 4:25 manually it should be very light and you 4:28 want it to stop halfway open you want it 4:30 to balance in the opening and not open 4:32 or close once you you stop the door 4:34 halfway up you want it to stay in place 4:36 and that means that your door is 4:38 perfectly balanced Stephanie this has 4:40 been great information I really 4:42 appreciate it Stephanie Carter from A1 4:44 Door
