These are notes from the video below.

  • Use Lithium grease spray – NOT WD40 or oil.
  • Release the door from the mechanism so you can move the track up and down manuall.
  • Spray all moving parts on the door itself.
  • Spray ball bearings in door rollers – use straw on can.
  • Spray pulley ball bearings – use straw on can.
  • You can spray the top of the rail where the metal moves back and forth.
  • Spray the torsion spring.
  • You don’t need to spray the chains.
  • You don’t need to spray the track, but you can clean the track with WD40.
