How do I conduct a balance test for my door?
First, turn off the automatic opener system before conducting the test. Then open the door halfway. The garage door should stay put and not open further or close. Then try opening and closing it from that halfway point. The motion should be effortless, not sudden, and the door should stay put irrespective of the position. This test should be performed regularly as part of preventive maintenance.
Can I install my old garage door opener on a new garage?
