Cool. I live in the Bay Area as well. My garage door keeps "jamming up" when opening/closing. It's clearly a lubrication issue. The old messy black graphite stuff on the threaded drive rod has worn out. I've tried WD-40, 3-in-one oil, dry black graphite, and most recently 3-in-one professional Garage door lube.
Each time I apply this stuff it makes a big mess, so I have to take everything out of the garage and lay down painter's plastic. I have to shoot whatever I'm using up into the track because I can't lube from the top because the top is closed.
Whatever I have used in the past year only seems to work for a week or two. Is there a grease that I can use to make operations better?
FYI it's a Genie, and about 20 yrs. old. Thanks.
