Hi I'm Dan Musick and today we're going to show you how to

check the balance of your garage door

manufacturers recomend doing this periodically

maybe once a year

to check the balance of your garage door

for safety first it's always good to unplug the opener

to do that you come up here

pull the cord from the opener

next

disengage the opener

from the door you do that by pulling the rope towards the inside of the garage

and that disengages it

there are two positions on the opener

if you pull it away from the door

it disengages if you pull it towards the door it could reengage

you pull it away from the door and then you lift the door

the door feels kind of heavy

open the door halfway

and it doesn't stay up

and when the door is all the way up

it's still heavy and it won't stay open
