Some of the do's I highly reccomend are, make sure to change your rollers on your door. Having old rollers can cause more damage to the door and even make the door pull out of the track. Another tip is check your cables on the sides of the door. If you see the cables are starting to get frayed or a few strands are sticking out it's time to change the cables. If these cables snap it can cause major damage to the door also resulting in a new door. Theres also checking the door for balance. Opened manually with the motor not attached the door should stay in the half way position shouldn't fling up or down.
