WARNING – DO NOT ATTEMPT TO DO YOUR OWN REPAIRS

A garage door spring unit is under tension at all times and should never be adjusted, except by approved, fully trained Garador dealers. No operator or other person should ever stand directly in the path of the door in its downward travel or walk through the doorway while the door is moving. Always use the door handle to manually operate the door. If the door is now or later becomes automatically operated, the pull down rope on the door must be removed.

DO NOT PLACE YOUR FINGERS NEAR ANY MOVING PARTS OR BETWEEN THE DOOR PANELS WHEN THE DOOR IS OPERATING EITHER AUTOMATICALLY OR MANUALLY.

Servicing

To keep your door running well, it is recommended that your door be serviced by an experienced technician every 12 months or earlier if required. Contact your local Garador dealer for more advice on servicing.

Note: If correct maintenance and servicing are not carried out your warranty may be void.

Garador recommends that you check the operation of your door at least every three to six months (more regularly in extreme environments or with frequent use). The effort required to manually open and to manually close the door should be about the same (if door has an automatic opener, put into manual mode before testing door).

Regular Maintenance Required

  1. Lifting cables: (If fitted). Check for wear through by rubbing. If there is fraying or signs of corrosion, contact your local approved Garador dealer. These cables are under extreme tension and should never be adjusted, except by fully trained Garador dealers.
  2. Fasteners: Check all screws, nuts and bolts to ensure they are secure.
  3. Spring tension: It is natural for garage door springs to lose tension. Should the door become hard to operate or completely inoperative, contact your local Garador office, or call the Garador dealer who installed your door. If there is more than one spring on the garage door, all springs should be replaced at the same time should one show signs of wear.
