Failure to service a garage door is the most common reason garage doors come off track. Below are the 3 more of the top reasons a garage door will lose cable tension and fall off track.
Garage door openers are built with sensitivity settings that are designed to alert you of potential problems. Older openers make it easy to adjust the garage door opener "force" settings.
The opener force settings should never be turned up in order to overcome a problem with the garage door that should be resolved with a garage door service or repair, but homeowners and unprofessional garage door technicians alike used the force settings as a quick fix to cover up bigger problems.
This puts the entire garage door system at risk for severe failure such as a garage door off track situation.
If you have an opener that is older than 10 years, a new opener could be a good idea to remove the risk associated with older openers that have not been serviced regularly or properly.

Several factors can cause a garage door to go off track, such as broken cables, worn-out rollers, damaged tracks, or an accidental collision. Lack of maintenance, improper installation, or sudden forceful impacts can also contribute. It's best to have a professional at One Clear Choice assess the situation and identify the specific cause to prevent future occurrences.
To prevent your garage door from coming off track, ensure regular maintenance by lubricating the rollers, hinges, and tracks, and tightening loose hardware. Avoid slamming the door shut or using excessive force. Keep the tracks clean and free from debris. Additionally, schedule professional inspections to identify and address any potential issues before they lead to track misalignment.
