Garage Door Chain Drive Sprocket Sheered Off


You can see the chain sagging from the tilted sprocket stem that has worn away the sleeve that lets the sprocket rotate without any friction. This sprocket can show the wear and tear if you examine underneath the sprocket’s teeth, you will see a pilling of metal. The metal pilings are the result of metal grinding away from the weight of the door.

Excellent view of the grinding of the sleeve caused by the heavy door. This is a little hard to detect without a ladder, but if you see that your chain is sagging you may be expericing a sprocket / gear kit assembly that may be failing.

After photo new photo eye has been installed. You can see that there is another senor next to the freshly installed sensor which is for the other door. You can see that there are wood pieces that are stacked near the sensors. This is not what you want, if you want your door to run smoothly without a problem. These pieces of wood can easily fall behind the track and cause a serious issue when the door tries to lower and is stopped by a piece of wood that is jammed.
