The Roller Spindles may also require changing at the same time as changing the cables!
Please look at our Garage Door Repair Kits (cables and roller spindle kits)
The main reasons why the Roller Spindles require changing!
*The age of the Roller Spindles
*The tracks the Roller Spindles run in are too tight therefore preventing the Roller Wheels from rolling freely.
*The Roller Wheels have been coated in grease, grease will prevent the roller wheels from rolling and will eventually wear a flat surface on one side as pictured below!
Notice the flat worn roller wheels
NEVER GREASE ROLLER SPINDLES!
*Always apply a light oil (WD40) after fitting and at service intervals afterwards.
Replacing the Roller Spindles can be a straight forward job!
*Before any work is carried out the Spring Tension has been taken off the cables this will the allow the spindles to be removed safely.
*On a retractable garage door usually the door requires to be aided with a prop whilst the repairs are carried out!
