Color me stumped...Garage door issues.
Hi! I haven't posted here in a while, but I have been looking in periodically. Got an issue with our garage door. This is a normal roll up door of wood construction. It is 18' wide. About 3 weeks ago, we started getting a gap at the left side. I have tried increasing the tension on the right side spring, didn't change. This morning I decreased the tension on the left side...still no change. I can stand on the door with it disconnected from the opener and it will go down, but won't stay there with weight off of it. In fact I have to bounce on the door to get that side to touch the floor. The gap is 2 1/2" at the far left side of the door, slightly out of the picture. With the door in the up position, you can also see that it is off. I could easily add to the bottom of the door to get a seal, but that isn't fixing the problem. Any ideas? I can't see any cracks in the slab or the brick that would indicate a drop on that side of the house. Even so, I'd think the door and track would follow it down. I don't see anything binding in the track. The door moves evenly open to close, just not level with the floor. I'm stumped. Jim.
