Reasons that cause your Garage Door to Fall Off-Track
A broken cable is also a potential reason for your door to be misaligned. This is more common for older garage doors with cables on either side. These wires help lift and lower the door, balancing out the weight of the panels. After much wear and tear, these cables can snap and cause the entire door to get off track.
Loose screws and other hardware can also serve as causes for off-track garage doors. When all contraptions and connectors are not in order, the entire door becomes unsound. Regular checks are critical.
Your garage door wheel can also raise the issue of a garage door off track. Wheels absorb a lot of weight when you open and close the door. Over time, if they are not replaced appropriately, they can snap or fall out of place.
Finally, the most common cause for doors to get out of place is a dented track. If your garage door fell off track, it is most likely because the track itself is dented or broken for some reason. If notice that the tracks on either side of the door do not look correct, then seek professional attention before using the door again.
