Squeaky Dover door rollersgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Elevator Problem Discussion : One Thread
Some of my Dovers have squeaky door rollers, I have tryed light weight oil and penatrating oil and they quit squeaking but it don,t last long at all, Other then changing the rollers wondered if anyone had a better idea. Thanks Larry LaMar Local 3

If their are center opening doors, it could be the small cable tensioning rollers on each end of the track that are squeaking. I use One Lube for those and it works well. Just a thought.

Hey Larry! Don't listen to these guys! If you have squeky rollers, don't put ant type of oil or lube on them. There's only one manufacturer of rollers that require oil on them and that's GAL. Dover, Otis, Meco etc, all have a rubber "tire" on their rollers to eliminate squeking and extend roller life. Clean off those rollers and hangers and REPLACE them if needed.

for dovers try using regular old bar soap on the track. it usually works for a month or two. woodman, local 140
