You may need a chain replacement if…
- The chain is loose or sagging – If your garage door opener chain is loose or sagging, it could be a sign that it’s damaged or worn out. This can cause the garage door to open or close unevenly, hesitate, or shake when operating.
- You hear strange noises – If your garage door opener chain is making grinding or squeaking noises, it may be rubbing against other parts of the opener or have some other mechanical issue.
- The garage door reverses when closing – This could happen if something is obstructing the sensors, but it could also mean that there’s a problem with the chain or opener.
When a chain breaks, we typically recommend replacing the rail as well. Precision trucks arrive stocked with both!
