There are several reasons that garage doors become untracked. A common cause of an off track garage door is due to one of the cables breaking after years of use and natural wear and tear. Typically, a cable will only break on one side of the garage door track during the process of opening. When this happens, only one side of the door gets lift, and the other drops, which causes the door to "wedge" between the tracks or even come off the tracks. Sometimes garage doors come off track due to an obstructed path or the garage door being hit by a car or other powerful force. Most garage doors today have electric sensors to ensure the path of the door is clear. A garage door without electric sensors allows the opportunity for a items to be left in the path of the garage door. Once the garage door makes contact with the object, it could knock the door off track.
