Common Retractable Awning Problems and How to Fix Them

  • Are you experiencing problems with your outdoor blind or retractable awning? Below are several typical awning issues and how to fix them so you can enjoy the many benefits of your awnings:

  • Retractable awning motors are responsible for actually moving your awning. So you don’t have to manually hand crank the awning, motorized awnings move with the simple press of a button. If the motor is malfunctioning or broken, that movement can be jerky, or the awning may remain stuck in one position.

  • The solution. A simple issue may have to do with the motor’s power connection, such as a shorted wire. In other cases, the motor may have reached the end of its usable life. Whether the solution is a relatively easy repair or a replacement, it is best to call a professional.

  • A Patio Blind that has come out of its tracks

  • The problem. An awning that has come out of its track will not function properly. If this happens, it could be because the awning jumped the tracks and needs to be realigned. An awning may not be running smoothly in its tracks for other reasons, such as a build-up of debris, a lack of lubrication or warped tracks. Whatever the cause, an awning’s tracks are essential to the smooth operation of the entire system. If you allow your awning to continue to operate on faulty tracks, you’ll risk more extensive and costly damage to the rest of the Patio blind or awning
