HOW DO YOU FIX A SQUEAKING FRONT ENTRANCE DOOR TO YOUR HOUSE


Hello,

Use a screwdriver, and perhaps a small hammer to pry the hinge pins out one at a time. After you get it out, use some WD-40 or silicone spray to wipe the dirt buildup off of it, then put a thin coat on and re-insert the pin.

If the door does not have hinge pins, use the WD-40 or silicone spray on the hinge and work the door back and forth until the squeaking stops.

Thanks for using Fixya.

YOU MAY HAVE A BROKEN SPRING

CHECK TO SEE HOW THE DOOR WORKS MANUALLY - DISCONNECTED FROM THE OPENER. IF YOU CAN'T LIFT IT EASILY THE SPRING MAY NEED TO BE ADJUSTED OR REPLACED.

IF IT LIFTS EASILY BY HAND THEN LUBE (WHITE LITHIUM OR WD-40) THE SPRINGS, HINGES AND OPENER RAIL - TRY IT AGAIN, IF IT STILL REVERSES ADJUST THE OPEN SENSITIVITY 1/8 TURN AT A TIME IF IT TAKES MORE THAN 3/4 OF THE ADJUSTMENT RANGE OR STILL DOESN'T WORK I WOULD HAVE IT LOOKED AT BY A PRO. SOME THINGS YOU CAN LOOK RIGHT AT AND NOT SEE.

HOPE THIS IS HELPFUL
