Garage Door Opener
Do not overload the garage door opener, i.e. by riding on the garage door, or trying to raise the door when the lock is engaged.

Do unplug your garage door opener from the wall outlet, if it seizes up or starts humming loudly.
Do call a professional garage door opener repair specialist at the first sign of trouble, because there are no user serviceable parts inside a garage door opener, ever.

Do not try to move your garage door, either manually or automatically, after a spring has snapped in two. Only a licensed and trained garage door spring technician can safely handle the high tension.
