Garage Door Bearing Replacement Service

Failing end-bearing plates need to be replaced or they will put your garage door at risk for complete failure. The garage door centre and end bearing plates have to be installed correctly and maintain all the time. Otherwise, they will go bad again. Contact Fix Garage Doors CA for qualified garage door-bearing replacement services.

Besides, proper maintenance, including lubrication, will prolong the life of the end bearings plates. Replacing the end bearings plates when they show signs of wear is much cheaper than waiting for something bad to happen and damaging other parts as well.

How to Replace End Bearing Plates

There are some very important components in the garage door system, and the end bearings plates are an important key in the garage door functioning. Manufacturers recommend to replace them after about 10,000-15,000 life cycles, that is the door has been opened and closed about 10,000-15,000 times. Over time the bearings begin to grind and it can cause the garage door opener to work harder. Please follow the instructions prepared by our garage door experts:

1.

Open the door with the garage door opener and unplug it. The opener will hold the door open as you replace the end bearing plates. But we replace the bearings with the door open as well. Sometimes there is only about a turn of tension on the garage door springs.

2.

If you have a similar type of bearing plate, remove the lag that secures the top of the bearing plate to the header. This bearing has “ADH” stamped on it. If you have this type of bearings, we recommend you replace them.

3.

Loosen the nuts at the bottom of the bearing plate. Remove the nuts and the bolts. Notice the rusty steel filings from the bearing that are on the angle just beyond my fingers.

4.

Lower the end of the shaft and the bearing plate. Raise the end of the shaft and rotate the plate 90 degrees.

5.

Remove the old bearing plate.

6.

Slide on the new plate. Lift the shaft and rotate the plate as needed to get it beyond the horizontal track angle. Install the bottom bolts, but do not tighten them at this time. Check to make sure the cable is still on the drum and reinstall it if needed.

7.

Secure the top of the end bearing plate. Align the top of the bearing plate as needed. The plate should be plumb and secure. Lubricate both sides of the bearing.

8.

Follow the same procedure for replacing the end bearing plate on the other side.

9.

Check to make sure both cables are on the drums. Disengage the door from the opener and close the door manually to make sure the door works properly. And reengage the opener, plug in the power cord, and run the door electrically with the opener.
