Bottom wheel of garage door came off track

Our bottom left wheel of the garage door came off the track and is now resting in front of the track while the other wheels are still in the track as they should be. This is putting tension on the lower section of the garage door. Is there a way to take this wheel off or an easy way to get the wheel back onto the track?

    I have a similar problem. It's an automatic garage door and one of the wheels (the last wheel on the left side) keeps coming out of the track. The wheels have a rod going through the middle of them, and for the other wheels (the working ones) the rod seems to be fastened to the wheel. For the broken wheel, the rod is loose and the wheel is pushed off the track when the door closes. I'm guessing I need a new wheel, or somehow need to fasten the rod to the wheel so it stays on the track.

I have a meld wen vinyl slider that I am trying to install but I cannot remove the bottom metal track so I can install the window


You need to adjust the wheels up with the adjustment screws on the bottom end of the door. The door will lift slightly enough to let the wheels and door clear the track. So up and in. Then when replacing, lift up and set down on the track on the rollers and adjust up turning screw so that the door rolls easily without rubbing. Some doors adjustment screw is on the bottom door end, some are on the side of the bottom of the door a few inches back, depending on model.

The garage door opens only 1/3 and goes back. How to make it open the door completely?


The door has an infra red sensor on the door or on the track at the two bottom edges of the rail which stops the opening or closing if something is in the way. You need to get inside and remove anything that is close to the bottom edge of the door on its travels.

Garage door opens about 6 then stops. When closing the door reopens to about 6 then stops.


Something could be binding in the track. Try lubricating all the moving parts. Also, the IR sensor at the bottom, which is designed to prevent the door from hitting something, could need to be aimed again. On mine, the IR sending unit at the bottom was burned out. If you have the installation manual, it may have a trouble shooting guide.

How to install side front window?


The window track should have a bolt at the bottom so the track can be moved away from the window to allow enough room to slip it in between the tracks.Also the door skin can be unbolted to gain access from the outside of the door which may make it easier.

The wheels on my garage door keep coming off the tracks. The second one from the bottom comes off every day and the top wheel now starts coming off. I continue to bang them back in the tracks but...


You can buy new wheels at hardware store.

Remove the 2 hex nuts that hold the wheel-brace.
Insert new wheel in brace, and then reattach to door with hex nuts
Another thing I used to do is take the big channel locks and squeeze down the track a bit where the wheels come off.

How do you remove the door panel for a 2001 sonata ? (window off track, but forgot how to remove the door panel fasteners)


If memory serves, 2 screws on the left edge facing the striker, 2 screws on the front edge facing the headlight, 2 screws on the bottom edge, 1 screw behind the door handle cover, 1 or 2 under the arm rest, and don't forget to remove the quad cover at the front edge of the window so you don't break it taking off the panel.

Window off track


Looking at the opened door from the inside remove the philips screw near the upper hinge. Pry the speaker grill off with a thin blade putty knife, starting at the bottom left and work to the right. Remove speaker screws and the three screws in the recessed plastic spaces behind. Remove the square covers behind the handle and in the arm rest. Remove the 2 philips screws exposed. Start to pry from the top hinge side between the plastic door panel and the metal door. Work your way around the door until plastic clips release. Once the bottom of the panel and sides are free, lift the panel up and off the door being careful not to pull wiring and door handle mechanism loose. Unplug the as much of the wiring as you can and support the panel so as to not stretch the wiring. Pop the plastic retaining clip on the door handle connecting rod and lift the rod out of the handle. Slowly peel back the vinyl/rubber door cover stuck to the metal door. The window is held in the lower track with two clips that are bolted to the track. Unbolt by raising or lowering the window and using a 10MM socket on the nuts to loosen. Remove the window seal along trhe bottom of the window opening by prying straight up. You can then remove the window and re-epoxy in the lower clips and reassemble window in reverse order.

Unable to allign inner and outer trolley on a Craftsman garage door opener


You probably have a stripped gear. Take the cover off the opener and the bottom will be filled with white shavings and the gear will be missing teeth. You can repair with a liftmaster gear and sprocket kit.

My garage door will not stay down when I try to close it.


IF THE DOOR CLOSES ALL THE WAY WHEN HOLDING DOWN THE WALL BUTTON AND REVERSES 6" FROM THE FLOOR WHEN NOT HOLDING THE BUTTON.
I WOULD GUESS THAT THE SAFETY EYES ARE MOUNTED ON THE TRACK.
WHEN THE DOOR CLOSES THE TRACK AT THE BOTTOM IS TOO TIGHT CAUSING IT TO FLEX AS THE DOOR GETS NEAR THE BOTTOM. WHEN THE TRACK FLEXES THE EYES ARE POINTING FURTHER AWAY FROM THE DOOR AND EVENTUALLY THEY ARE TOO FAR OUT OF ALINMENT AND THE LED WILL GO OFF - THE DOOR GOES BACK UP.

SOLUTION: YOU CAN USE THE CLAW END OF A HAMMER TO TAP THE TRACK OUT A LITTLE WIDER - TAP NEXT TO THE WALL ON THE BRACKET THAT HOLDS THE TRACK TO THE WALL. MOVE THEM ABOUT 1/4" EACH SIDE.

OR

YOU CAN MOUNT THE BRACKETS TO THE WALL OR THE FLOOR.

THIS SHOULD SOLVE IT

HAVE A GREAT DAY
