When the operator of the roller shutter stop operating the gate, it can be due to several reasons:
The situation is with the gate itself.
The situation is with the operator of the gate.
The situation is with the electric power.
The operator installed is not the right operator for the gate.
A qualified roll up door repairman should have the ability to determine what is the reason the roller shutter is not working, and what is the best way to solve the problem.

There different types of roller shutters in New York City, and they require different types of operators.

To avoid unnecessary repairs, install the right roll up gate operator.
Fixing off rails roller shutter, and bringing the gate back to the rails is not something that can be done by any handyman. Bringing a commercial use roller shutter back into the rails is something that require special equipment and special knowledge.

The roll down door wasn’t greased and maintain for a long time.
The roller shutter was closed when something was placed bellow it at its path.
The lock wasn’t removed from the gate before trying to open it.
The roll-down was hit by a vehicle.
The gate was "not working" and operated before repaired.
It doesn’t really make a difference what is the reason that drove the iron door off tracks, it should not be used before a qualified repairman came and fixed it. Bringing the door back into the rails doesn’t not mean that the job is done. There is a need to repair the damage or address the cause that drove the gate off tracks.

We would like to share a story about roll down gate repair in New York City that luckily ended with no injuries: Our repairman arrived once to service a jammed roller shutter at an industrial property in New York City. The gate was jammed after a truck hit it. The repairman offered to replace the damaged materials with new ones, since that was the only way to save money. The client refused to replace the jammed slots saying that the gate is working so why does he need to invest money in replacing them. The repairman left after warning the gate owner that it is dangerous to use the gate in its current condition.
The gate lasted for one hour before it got completely jammed. However it did not over there. Since they repeatedly attempted to operate the gate using the electric c operator, they also destroyed the operator. The case needed with a gate that can’t be fixed anymore, and with a completely new gate installment.
So whenever there is something wrong with gate, hire a local roll-up steel door supplier in New York to fix it. Ignoring a problem, or hoping it is going to miraculously disappear is a mistake that can cost a lot of money and even end with injuries.
