Garage doors fall off their track for a variety of reasons: sometimes someone accidentally runs into the door and dislodges it, and on other occasions, time and wear have worn down cables and other mechanisms beyond their use. If your garage door has jumped its track, do not attempt to move the door or reset it on your own. Doing so can be dangerous.
A garage door off its track makes your entire garage unusable. Not only this, but a downed garage door can also trap your vehicle or belongings within your garage and become a safety hazard to you and your family. Garage doors usually come off their track while opening.
Sometimes this occurs due to a broken cable, and at other times a car has run into a door or the door itself has closed on an obstruction.
Regardless of the cause, a downed garage door causes not only an inconvenience to you and your family but also a danger. If your door is down, do not attempt to move it. The weight of a garage door makes the door unstable, and attempting to move it on your own can fully detach the door and cause injury.
