What 305 Garage Door’s Workers Would Do During Cable Tension Adjustment
First, we would pull the rope that is attached to the garage door opener then it would release from its drive chain enabling us to see the tension springs that are responsible for raising the door.
We will, then, lift the door to release the tension on the springs and while we are doing that, we will also want to disconnect the electricity from the garage door if it is an automatic one to prevent any electrical accidents.
Next, we will attach two c-clamps on the door’s track under the roller that is closest to the bottom of the door to prevent it from crashing while we work on it.
The third step that we are going to do is to disconnect the cable which is located above the doorway of the door’s frame and attach it to one of the holes so the wires aren’t loose.
Next is adjusting the cable brackets.
In order pull and tighten the cable wiring, we might have to use a pair of pliers.
We must keep in mind that too much tightening and loosening of the bracket may cause problems so it is crucial to adjust it just enough to prevent the cables from getting entangled with each other.
After we have adjusted or replaced any broken cables, we will check the drum which maintains the garage door balanced.
This is also where the cable is wrapped around neatly.
We will make sure that the cables are not unwrapped and are aligned properly on both sides of the door.
After doing so, we will remove both the c-clamps and lower the door manually and reconnect the electricity back again.
For someone with limited skills, adjusting the garage door cable tension is quite dangerous.
It is more difficult when we don’t have enough knowledge about it.
