The garage door hinge and garage door rollers are considered to be some of the most essential parts of the door to your garage. They are responsible for holding the panels of the doors to your garage in place. But the hinges and rollers do give way eventually due to the weight of the door and the tension of the springs. So when your hinges or rollers do give way, these are what you need to do:
The first thing you need to do when the doors to your garage start acting up is to make sure to disconnect the garage door opener from the power supply to avoid it from suddenly turning on. The problem could be with either the rollers or hinges. Always make sure to keep the door in an upward position and secure the door in place to prevent it from suddenly dropping so that the garage door repair will be done quickly and easily. After all you cannot remove any of the screws and bolts if the doors are not raised and held in place. You can also try taking out the springs before calling for someone to help you with the repairs.
