Garage Door Repair 101: How to Fix a Garage Door Off Track

If your garage door has come off its tracks, you might be able to repair it yourself if not too much damage has been done to the tracks or the garage door itself. Start by detaching the automatic garage door opener. Open the door partially until you get to the point the door came off track. Secure the door in place using vice grips. Using pliers, pry open one side of the track along the point the roller came off. Slide the roller back in place. Repeat this process for every roller that came off track. Once all rollers are safely back inside the track, you’ll need to gently bend the track back into place using a soft rubber mallet so you don’t dent the track. Open and close the door manually to check if the door is back and running smoothly again.
