How Do Door Closers Work?
Manual door closers allow your customers to easily enter your business without worrying about closing the door. Any properly installed door closer results in the customer feeling a slight level of resistance as they open the door. After the initial resistance, the door should effortlessly glide open and gently close behind them as it returns to the frame. While this is how a door should function, there are several reasons your door closer may not be functioning properly.
Top Reasons for Door Closer Repair

Seal Repairs and Low Oil Levels
Broken seals result in exposed clearance gaps, lubricant leaks and vulnerable hardware. Most oil leaks are the result of failed seals, missing screws, broken O-rings or other mechanical problems. No matter the cause, it's vital to have an expert perform the door closer repair to replace the missing oil. Improperly lubricated doors closers will commonly open and close too quickly, which causes damage to the door and may even injure a customer.
