PRODUCT MAINTENANCE

(For doors using Torsion Spring lift mechanisms)

To ensure safe operation of your Richard-Wilcox sectional overhead door and hardware, periodic maintenance is required. The following procedures should be followed at least every six months (more often in the case of doors experiencing heavy use).

  • Inspect lifting cables, relieve tension on springs before inspecting the lifting cables. (Hanover Doors Systems Inc. recommends that only experienced installers wind and unwind springs. Inexperience can result in serious injuries and death!). Check the cable through the entire length and ensure that the cable is properly secured at the drum and at the bottom roller bracket. If the cables have become snagged, bent, or tangled, they should be replaced. The cables could appear to be in good condition, however, internal damage may have been done and fracture of the cable could follow. Use extreme care when working with the cables.
  • All bearings and rollers throughout the door and headshaft assembly should be cleaned and lubricated. Contact Hanover Doors Systems Inc. for a proper sectional door lubricant.
  • All of the roller brackets, intermediate hinges, and the struts should be checked for security. Tighten any loose fasteners and replace any hinges or roller brackets, which are fractured in any way.
  • Check all the rollers and if any appear wobbly they should be replaced.
  • Check the fasteners of the vertical tracks and the horizontal track hangers and tighten any loose fasteners.
  • Examine and oil the torsion springs.
