How to Replace Garage Door Rollers and Hinges

by Daniel Pope on Nov 10, 2017

You are probably wondering where hinges fit when we talk about garage door rollers replacement. These two parts are actually directly related. The hinges of sectional doors do not only keep the panels together. They are also installed on the two sides to connect the door with the rollers. So when you remove the rollers in order to replace them with new ones, it makes sense to replace the hinges too taken that they are also damaged.

When it's time to replace garage door rollers & hinges

When garage doors get really noisy, it's often the sign of damaged rollers. garage_door_rollersDon't forget that most rollers are made of steel. This means that they are susceptible to rust. Since they are installed together and are made of steel too, hinges often get rusty about the same period with rollers. After all, if the rollers become rusty, they will affect the condition of the hinges too. Rollers might also get damaged if the garage door tracks are worn, bent, or misaligned. The rollers will be pushed, pressed, and often pop off. If track damage was caused by the car, the rollers might get ruined as well.

Things to consider before garage door hinges and rollers replacement

  • Not all garage door rollers are the same. Always choose their diameter and size of the stem based on the weight of the door.
  • If you want a smooth operation, prefer nylon rollers instead of steel ones. Their movement is even quieter and steadier when they are made with many ball bearings.
  • Never remove all rollers together to keep the door from falling.
  • The method of replacing the top, middle and bottom rollers is similar but not the same.
  • Remember that the bottom roller is attached to a bracket where the garage door cable is also attached. So this part is very dangerous. Never loosen the bolts of the bracket or release cable tension to avoid accidents.
  • Always disconnect the garage door opener before you do such jobs.
  • Remember to complete the replacement of a roller & hinge before you move to the next one.
  • Since replacing hinges and rollers entails many dangers, it's always best to trust the job to an expert in such garage door repair services.

  • Remove the bolts of one hinge.
  • Turn the roller towards the inner part of the garage to remove it from the track.
  • Insert the new roller into the new hinge. You will notice that the hinges have holes where you put the lag screws. On one side, there is a slot. This part must be on the top side.
  • Use the same method of removing the old roller to place it back in the track. You need to hold it in an angle so that it will go inside the track.
  • Then line up the hinge with the roller to fit the holes in the right position to secure the hinge with the bolts. It's always best to get new bolts too especially if the old ones are rusty or broken.
  • Once you are done with one roller and hinge and complete their replacement on one side, move on the other side. Never forget that top and especially bottom rollers need more attention in order to be replaced in a safe manner.
