Springs

 j120
Springs are high tension objects which needs to be handled with a lot of caution. They are best maintained by a trained service technician. If the springs are making a noise but working perfectly, you can lubricate the spring with a spray (for example Q20). Any other issues please contact your technician.
All brackets and rollers

The brackets and rollers needs to be checked and tightened if they become loose. All your rollers and hinges should be stable and tight, if you are unable to tighten them yourself, contact your trained technician.
Cables

Center lock double
Visually inspect the cables that attach the spring system to the bottom brackets on both sides of the door. Due to the high spring tension, these cables should be replaced by a trained service technician to ensure no injuries occur.
Motors

1200-vcw1
Motors are electric operated systems, meaning they can shock you causing severe injuries or death if not installed and maintained properly.
All maintenance should be carried out by a suitably qualified technician. Make monthly inspections and testing part of your daily routines.
Always ensure your operator has an obstacle setting feature, if not it might be time to be replaced.
Do not disengage the door opener to manual operation with children/persons or any other object including motor vehicles within the doorway. Ensure that you are fully aware how to disengage and re-engage the motor when the power fails.

Ensure to never let children play with or around the motor and/or garage door and all components. It is recommended to clean and lubricate the motor shaft with the recommended grease twice a year.
