Why has my garage door opener become noisy?
Some models and designs of particular openers can be a little noisy, but if you notice unusual or excess noise, it could be an indicator of a problem. In many instances, it could simply be a matter of a loose fitting which requires tightening or a roller which requires lubricating, however excess noise can be created by a bent or damaged garage door track. Watch the motion of your door as it opens and closes to see if there is any jerking movement which could indicate a more serious issue.
