Garage door holding my car hostage!
by austinbaileys on October 9th, 2011

Our garage door broke on Friday night. It won't open so I can't get my car out. It won't close all the way either. It's open about 2 1/2 feet - just enough room for someone to come in and steal our stuff. I called the number on the garage. It says 24 hour/7 days a week service. I have yet to get a call back from them.

Can anyone suggest e repairman? I just need someone to be able to get it open so I can get my car out. Then we can close and lock it until the garage door company calls me back.

Thanks.

I assume you have an electric garage door opener.

Is the motor trying to open the door or not? If not then there should be a manual way to disengage the chain from the door which would free up the door.

If the motor tries to open but somehow the door is jammed then it is a whole other matter. Probably would require more professional help.

baileys-

Is one side higher than the other? if so it's the door. Working with a stuck garage door in that situation can be both frustrating and potentially dangerous because of the tension on the torsion spring cable and other parts. in addition to the risk to your hands and fingers you can also damage the door and tacks if you aren't used to working with garage doors.

If you google emergency garage door repair austin you should find somebody.

Good luck

You are exactly right. I can see the track is bent and the door is uneven. Thanks so much for your comments. I will not risk my safety. A professional will be out tomorrow.

The cost of these materials is not too much, and I can purchase these materials, as well. I will get cheap exterior doors for building the deck so that the total amount that I spend won't exceed a lot.
