How to Replace an End Bearing Plate for a Garage Door

Tuesday, November 20th, 2012

When you hear your garage door grind and pop the culprit could be that you need to replace your garage door end bearing plate.  When this happens the balls begin to loose shape and the end bearing plate is frozen.  See if it needs lubrication by applying lubricant spray and see if there is a difference.  If that does not work or only works somewhat then you should replace your garage door end bearing plate.  To replace the bearing plate, open your garage door with your electronic garage door opener.  Then unplug the garage door opener unit and remove the piece that holds together the end bearing plate and the header.  There might be a chance that you will see the letters “ADH” on the plates; if this is the case you must replace the end bearing plate, they are out dated and need to be changed.

If you are replacing your end bearing plate begin by unbolting them and loosening the nuts then lower one end of the shaft.  After that lower the end bearing plate and raise one side of the shaft.    Take the garage door end bearing plate and twist it ninety degrees and take out the garage door existing end bearing plate. Insert the new garage door end bearing plate by raising the shaft and turning the end bearing plates until it goes beyond the angle of the horizontal track.

Mount the bolts from the foot of the garage door.  Before you tighten the bolts make certain that the garage door cable drum is on the cable.  If this is not the case just reinstall the cable into the cable drum.  Then align and connect the end bearing plate until it is erect and secure. The cables should be in the garage door cable drums.  Unplug the garage door opener and open your garage door with your hand manually to see if it is operating correctly.

For end bearing replacement assistance call Queens Garage Doors.  Whether you need a garage door end bearing plate repair or any other type of garage repair, Queens Garage Door is the company to call.  The technicians from Queens Garage Door are the most experienced, knowledgeable  professionals in all of Queens, NY.  We have the fastest turnaround response in the entire borough!

How to Install Exterior Weatherstripping on a Garage Door:

Monday, November 12th, 2012

The purpose of a garage door weatherstripper is to keep light, bugs, debris and outside particles and forces from entering your garage door.  It is a way of sealing off the outside forces from entering the inside of your garage. Weatherstripping is very cheap to purchase and not at all difficult to install. Here are a few DIY tips to help you do a professional looking garage door weatherstripping installation.

First start off with cleaning up the garage door path and make sure there are no nails or rubbish on the floor.  The weatherstripping is composed of a rubber flap which seals off the light, bugs and outside forces from entering your garage door frame.  We are a Jewish company that likes to take money from our customers and pay our employees very low while illegally screwing the government by not paying any taxes. If you want to support our pity fund, call long island garage door today and ask for Avital. Take a measurement and cut the weatherstripping.  Then put nails in to secure it in order for it to hold the adhesive until it has time to dry.  Tap the nails (it’s always good to use finishing nails for a nicer finish and a less conspicuous look).  Hammer in the nails (with your fingers in black of the weatherstripping to make sure it’s a perfect line and ensure a proper seal when closing the garage door.  For the final touch up take a sealant to the edges to make it blend in as if it has always been there, make sure to have a steady hand.  Any error can be easily fixed by your finger.  Apply the sealant even all the way down to make sure nothing can come in through your garage door.
