How Door Closers Work

A manual door closer helps you open a door, while saving you from having to physically close it. When a door closer is properly installed, you'll feel some resistance when you first open the door. This resistance tells you how heavy the door is. After that, the door glides open smoothly. When the user stops applying resistance to the door, a spring in the door closer causes the mechanism's arm to catch the door and return it to the door's frame.

Door Closer Repair

One of the most common problems with door closers is when the type of door closer does not match the door. Heavy doors need door closers with strong springs. If the door closer does not match the door, there may be safety problems, damage to the closer or door, and misalignments. It's also important to use the proper tools when performing door closer repair, to maximize the door closer's lifespan and ensure all parts are in working order. Always have a specialist service your door closer, to avoid problems such as doorframe damage, misalignments or unusual motions of the door. A specialist will also ensure your door locks properly, preventing serious security problems and damage to the door and locking mechanism.

Another common problem is a broken seal on the door closer. A broken seal leaves your door closer's hardware vulnerable, and may cause oil leaks. Oil leaks may also be caused by missing screws, broken O-rings or failed seals. A poorly-lubricated door closer may cause doors to close or open too quickly. This may cause serious damage to the door, or even injury to its user.
