Door Section Identification
DEFINITION OF KEY WORDS USED IN THIS MANUAL:
WARNING
When installing your door, you must use sections of the appropriate height in the right stacking location. Determine, what sections you need to use in what order depends on the design
of your door.
Sections are stamped for identification, #1, #2, #3, and #4 (#4 only on four section high
doors). The stamp, located on each side of the sections identifies the stacking sequence. The
sequence is always determined by #1 being the bottom section to #4 or #5 being the highest
top section. If the stamp on the section is illegible, refer to the section side view illustration.
The section side view illustration shows the section profile of all sections, and can also be
used to identify each section.
The BOTTOM SECTION can be identified by #1.
The INTERMEDIATE I SECTION can be identified by #2.
The INTERMEDIATE II SECTION can be identified by #3, for a 4 section high door only.
The INTERMEDIATE III SECTION can be identified by #4, for a 5 section high door only.
The TOP SECTION can be identified either by a #3, for a 3 section high door, by a #4, for a 4
section high door or by a #5, for a 5 section high door.

Alternately inserting the winding rods into the holes of the spring winding cone, rotate the
winding cone in the direction as shown, 1/4 turn at a time, until the required number of
complete turns for your door height is achieved. As the last 1/8 to 1/4 turn is achieved,
securely hold the winding rod and carefully stretch the torsion spring 1/8” - 1/4”. Next while
still securely holding the winding rod, tighten both set screws in the winding cone to 14-15 ft.
lbs. of torque (once set screws contact the torsion shaft, tighten screws one full turn).
Carefully remove winding rod from winding cone. Repeat for the opposite spring. While
holding the door down to prevent it from raising unexpectedly in the event the spring(s) were
over-wound, carefully remove the locking pliers from the torsion shaft and vertical tracks.
Adjustments to the number of turns stated may be necessary. If door rises off floor under
spring tension alone, reduce spring tension until door rests on the floor. If the door is hard to
rise or drifts down on its own, add spring tension.
IMPORTANT: HOLD THE DOOR DOWN TO PREVENT IT FROM RISING UNEXPECTEDLY IN THE
EVENT THE SPRING(S) WAS OVER-WOUND AND CAUTIOUSLY REMOVE VICE CLAMPS FROM
VERTICAL TRACKS.
Now, lift door and check its balance. Adjustments to the required number of spring turns
stated may be necessary. If door rises off floor under spring tension alone, reduce spring
tension until door rests on the floor. If the door is hard to rise or drifts down on its own, add
spring tension. A poorly balanced door can cause garage door operator operation problems.
To adjust spring tension, fully close door. Apply vice grips to track above third track roller.
Insert a winding rod into the winding cone. On single spring doors, counterbalance lift
cable tension must be maintained by placing vice grips on torsion shaft before loosening
set screws in the winding cone. Push upward on the winding rod while carefully loosening
the set screws in the winding cone. BE PREPARED TO SUPPORT THE FULL FORCE OF THE
TORSION SPRING ONCE THE SET SCREWS ARE LOOSE. Carefully adjust spring tension 1/4
turn. Retighten both set screws in the winding cone and repeat for the other side. Recheck
door balance. DO NOT ADJUST MORE THAN 1/2 TURN FROM THE RECOMMENDED NUMBER
OF TURNS.
If the door still does not operate easily, lower the door into the closed position, UNWIND THE
SPRING(S) FULLY (Reference the insert “Removing The Old Door / Preparing The Opening”
section on torsion spring removal) and recheck the following the items:
1.) Check the door for level.
2.) Check the torsion shaft for level.
3.) Check the track spacing.
4.) Check the counterbalance cables for equal tension and proper wrap onto the cable
drums.
5.) Check the track for potential obstruction of the track rollers.
6.) Clamp locking pliers onto track and rewind springs.
IMPORTANT: IF DOOR STILL DOES NOT OPERATE PROPERLY, THEN CONTACT A TRAINED

MAINTENANCE
Operation And Maintenance
Cleaning Your Garage Door
OPERATING YOUR GARAGE DOOR:
Before you begin, read all warning labels affixed to the door and the installation instructions
and owner’s manual. When correctly installed, your Wayne Dalton door will operate smoothly.
Always operate your door with controlled movements. Do not slam your door or throw your
door into the open position, this may cause damage to the door or its components. If your
door has an electric opener, refer to the owner’s manual to disconnect the opener before
performing manual door operation below.
Manual door operation:
For additional information on manual garage door operations go to www.dasma.com and
reference TDS 165.
IMPORTANT: DO NOT PLACE FINGERS OR HANDS INTO SECTION JOINTS WHEN OPENING
AND/OR CLOSING A DOOR. ALWAYS USE LIFT HANDLES / SUITABLE GRIPPING POINTS
WHEN OPERATING THE DOOR MANUALLY.
Opening a Door: Make sure the lock(s) are in the unlocked position. Lift the door by using the
lift handles / suitable gripping points only. Door should open with little resistance.
Closing a Door: From inside the garage, pull door downward using lift handles / gripping point
only or a high friction area only. If you are unable to reach the lift handles/ suitable gripping
points only, use pull down rope affixed to the side of door. Door should close completely with
little resistance.
Using an electric operator:
IMPORTANT: PULL DOWN ROPES MUST BE REMOVED AND LOCKS MUST BE REMOVED OR
MADE INOPERATIVE IN THE UNLOCKED POSITION.
When connecting a drawbar (trolley type) garage door operator to this door, an drawbar
operator and or drawbar operator bracket must be securely attached to the top section of
the door, along with any struts provided with the door. Always use the drawbar operator and
or drawbar operator bracket supplied with the door. To avoid possible damage to your door,
Wayne Dalton recommends reinforcing the top section on models 8000, 8100, 8200 and
9100 doors with a strut (may or may not be supplied). The installation of the drawbar operator must be according to manufacturer’s instructions and force settings must be adjusted
properly. Refer to the owner’s manual supplied with your drawbar operator for complete
details on installation, operation, maintenance and testing of the operator.
MAINTAINING YOUR GARAGE DOOR:
Before you begin, read all warning labels affixed to the door and the installation instructions and owner’s manual. Perform routine maintenance steps once a month, and have the
door professionally inspected once a year. Review your Installation Instructions and Owner’s
Manual for the garage door. These instructions are available at no charge from Wayne Dalton,
A Division Of Overhead Door Corporation, P.O. Box 67, Mt. Hope, OH., 44660, or at www.
Wayne-Dalton.com. For additional information on garage door/operator maintenance go to
www.dasma.com and reference TDS 151, 167 and 179.
Monthly Inspections:
1. Visual Inspection: Closely inspect jambs, header and mounting surface. Any wood found
not to be structurally sound must be replaced. Inspect the springs, counterbalance lift cables,
track rollers, pulleys, rear back hangs and other door hardware for signs of worn or broken
parts. Tighten any loose screws and/or bolts. Check exterior surface of the door sections
for any minor cracks. Verify door has not shifted right or left in the opening. If you suspect
problems, have a trained door system technician make the repairs.
IMPORTANT: DO NOT USE A PRESSURE WASHER ON YOUR GARAGE DOOR!
An annual inspection of all the surfaces of your garage door(s) will reveal the extent of weathering and the possible need for refinishing. When the finish becomes eroded or thin, clean
and prime any areas showing deterioration. Then completely refinish the door, according to
the directions, listed below, or the manufacturer’s label directions. Proper finishing of the
wood substrates to protect your door(s) from the effects of moisture and sunlight is vital in
extending the service life and beautifying your garage door(s).
The interior and exterior surfaces, as well as all edges must be properly primed, painted and
maintained, to protect and beautify your door. These finishing instructions are intended to
achieve both objectives for your wood doors(s).
NOTE: Be sure to clean behind weatherstrips on both sides and top of door.
CAUTION: NEVER MIX CLEANSERS OR DETERGENTS WITH BLEACH.
GLASS CLEANING INSTRUCTIONS
Clean with a mild detergent solution (same as above) and a soft cloth. After cleaning, rinse
thoroughly.
ACRYLIC CLEANING INSTRUCTIONS
Clean acrylic glazing with nonabrasive soap or detergent and plenty of water. Use your bare
hands to feel and dislodge any caked on particles. A soft, grit-free cloth, sponge or chamois
may be used to wipe the surface. Do not use hard or rough cloths that will scratch the acrylic
glazing. Dry glazing with a clean damp chamois.
NOTE: Do not use any window cleaning fluids, scouring compounds, gritty cloths or solventbased cleaners of any kind.
Preparations
Clean all surfaces of dust, dirt and any other contaminants. Any scarring or stains that occur
during transportation, handling or storage must be re-sanded to the original condition.
Painting Your Garage Door
A high quality exterior 100% Acrylic Latex based finish paint is recommended for painting
your wood door. FOR BEST RESULTS DO NOT USE A DARK COLOR PAINT. HIGH HEAT
ABSORPTION CAN CAUSE EXCESSIVE BOWING AND CRACKING OF THE WOOD. If priming
is necessary, prime the interior and exterior surfaces, as well as all edges, using a primer
compatible with the selected finish paint and for the specific species of wood substrate being
finished.
NOTE: Some species of wood, such as cedar, require special primers and finishes to prevent
tannin stains from appearing. Consult with your paint supplier.
If the door is factory primed by Wayne Dalton, the priming step is not required, except if
touch-up is needed due to surface preparation and re-sanding.
NOTE: Wayne-Dalton uses a latex primer.
Finish paint the interior and exterior surfaces, as well as all edges with at least 2 coats of a
13
(available at www.dasma.com) on all sides, including all edges with one (1)
coat of exterior grade primer (or stain) and two (2) coats of high quality acrylic
latex exterior grade finish paint (or sealer), applied in accordance with the paint
or Sealer manufacturer’s instructions and Seller’s painting and maintenance instructions. Sections must be finished within five (5) days of receipt and prior to
installation. Damage caused by exposure of the product to water, moisture, sun
or other conditions prior to completion of painting (or Sealing) is excluded. This
warranty shall also be void if the Product is painted a dark color, including but
not limited to black, dark grey, dark green and dark brown*. IMPROPER TRANSPORTATION, STORAGE OR DELAYS IN FINISHING, THAT ALLOWS EXPOSURE OF
THE WOOD DOOR SURFACES TO MOISTURE OR OTHER CONTAMINANTS WILL
RESULT IN THE WARRANTY BEING VOIDED.
ALL EXPRESS AND IMPLIED WARRANTIES FOR THE PRODUCT, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO ANY IMPLIEDWARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY
AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, ARE LIMITED IN TIME TO THE APPLICABLE WARRANTY PERIOD REFLECTED ABOVE. NO WARRANTIES, WHETHER
EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, WILL APPLY AFTER THE LIMITED WARRANTY PERIOD
HAS EXPIRED. Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied
warranty lasts, so the above limitation may not apply to you.
IN NO EVENT SHALL SELLER BE RESPONSIBLE FOR, OR LIABLE TO
ANYONE FOR, SPECIAL, INDIRECT, COLLATERAL, PUNITIVE, INCIDENTAL OR
CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, even if Seller has been advised of the possibility
of such damages. Such excluded damages include, but are not limited to, loss
of use, cost of any substitute product, or other similar indirect financial loss.
Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.
Claims under this warranty must be made promptly after discovery,
within the applicable warranty period, and in writing to the Seller whose name
and address appear below. The purchaser must allow Seller a reasonable
opportunity to inspect any Product claimed to be defective prior to removal or
any alteration of its condition. Proof of the purchase and/or installation date,
