Why my garage door opener makes a noise but the door doesn't move?
Your opener most likely has a broken or worn out main drive gear. The main drive gear is made out of plastic so it is very susceptible to wear and tear. With a few worn out or broken gear teeth, slipping and grinding will become more common place, leading to more grinding down of the remaining teeth which ultimately renders the entire gear futile.
My garage door wobbles as it opens or closes, what could cause this?
One of the main reasons why a garage door shakes when it is raised or lowered is the misalignment of the rollers with the tracks. This can be caused by a roller that has been dislodged from its track or a track that is loose or bent out of shape.
