If this is the man door (not the one for a car) the fix is fairly simple by placing strips of cardboard behind either the front or back of the hinge opposite of where it is rubbing. ex. If it is rubbing at the top place a 1/4" strip of cardboard behind the front of the top hinge and/or the back of the botom hinge. What you are trying to accomplish is moving the door away from the jamb.

Hope this helps leave feedback.

Hi hope i can help. Please be careful working on garage doors, and especially the springs. They can be very dangerous. It seems to me that the rails might be out of alignment. Looking at the door from the inside. There are bolts at the upper rail near the bend. Lightly loosen them up to take any stress off. Then run the door up and down. If this seems to work bring the door back down and tighten the bolts.

Hope this works!

How to get garage door back to normal operation from manual operation

If you lift the garage door up by hand it should lock into the trolley. Once the door is up, if it does not lock in, they close it by pushing the close button and it should lock in automatically.

Locks on doors close down when opening and wont let me close the door

ice, the ice has no limits, on effects.
what does this mean.
doors close down my guess is the latch is jammed, right, in the door jam.
the latch, heat it up with a heat gun and lube it when dry.
park in doors? a garage? if not possible
learn to lube up the parts. so ice can not jam them.
or get help from any mechanic.
he knows what to do, let him/her.

Door does not open or close when using the remote. It closes only when pressing the hard wired square white touch pad. Behind the opaque white touch pad, one can see a flashing/blinking green light.

Using a step stool, reach up and remove the covers (the white covers pop off). The instructions will be labeled on the back plate for setting your remote control's security code Make sure the remote has a battery installed and is compatible with your garage door opener. Or go to the LiftMaster web site and down load its operators manual.

I bought a second hand Digidoor 1 with garage door. The door opens and closes perfectly when the digidoor is off. When I power up the digidoor the motor will not open the garage door when the door is...

You are receiving interference from the digi door. You will have to return this unit and go with a different one on a different frequency. Chamberlain makes a clicker that would work well with that unit. Thanks BB

I have a brand new Copier- Ricoh Aficio MP3350B there is a message on the screens "Cover is Open Close the Right Door" but i close all the covers turn machine off and on again still wont solve the problem...

I am pretty hopeful I can help you as I have similar service calls for this problem. I'm not sure why it happens but apparently during the course of clearing a paper jam there is a paper guide that is easily popped out of position. And even though the right hand jam clearance doors will indeed close and latch properly,the paper guide keeps the the door from satisfying the the switch that tells the copier the door is closed. So, you may need to lie down to see to see this properly but open the lower right jam clearance door (doors if you have the optional paper trays 3&4) and inspect the black paper guides that are exposed now as they are attached to the copier and not the door.The black guides are hinged and when properly seated will pivot/swing easily and will be perfectly square/perpendicular to the copier.There are holes in the frame of the copier that these guides pivot in and if one of these guides has accidentally been popped out of position then the outer door cannot depress the white button located at the upper right hand corner of the jam clearance area.Look closely as it it may not be obvious wthout knowing what to look for, as you do now :-) Gently bend the guide back into position till it locks and you will see the white actuator become available to the pressure of the closing of the door. Hope this helps. :->

Garage Door opened but will not close. I opened

I think the trolley has jammed against the bolt just in front of the motor unit. Remove the bolt and then run the door until it is closed. With the door closed locate the 'up limit' control on the side of the motor unit. Turn this 2 turns in the opposite direction of the arrow printed on the cover. Replace the bolt.

I have xerox workcentre xd105f, can't make copies, paper jamed and letter P on display

to remedy the P display error remove the paper tray and take any paper from under the tray and between the rollers, clean the rollers with alcohol or an acetone solution to remove paper dust and paper debris, refit the paper tray with the paper pushed below the tabs on the tray ensuring that the correct paper size is shown, IE: ltr ltr-r etc.
power the unit off and on and you should be back in business.

If this remedies the problem please rate the solution accordingly
