Troubleshooting Garage Door Popping Sounds
INSPECTION OF ROLLERS AND TRACKS
First, open up the garage door and inspect the garage tracks for any rocks, debris, or dust that can catch on. Check that the rollers are round without any flat spots. Try lubricating the rollers with some automotive engine oil. Then close the door and reinspect it.
Loose or broken hinges can cause garage doors to pop. Make sure that the hinge’s roller bolt is perfectly perpendicular to its track, and that the hinges are perfectly fastened on to the door. Use a box or socket wrench to make any bolts that are loose tighter, and use a rubber mallet to fix any slight bends in the door panels. Any significant damage should be repaired by a licensed professional garage door repair expert.
