Garage Door


No, that is not a bandit in our garage. SX decided to fix the loud noise every time the garage opens and closes. It seemed simple enough — purchase a lubricant and spray the rusty wheels. I lent him a scarf so he wouldn’t inhale the fumes.

Just as we were opening and closing the garage door to see which squeaky wheels needed the grease, we heard a pop! Then, I saw smoke. And everything was quiet. I pushed the garage door button a few times but to no avail. It wasn’t working anymore. What started out as a simple procedure to get rid of the noise became this complicated problem of fixing the machine that operated the garage opener. Oh well. I told SX that maybe it was the garage door’s way of saying that it’s retiring and to get a new one. Here’s SX trying to figure out what happened.
