In most circumstances, the deterioration of the seals in the door closers results in some hydraulic fluid leakage around the door closer. This is often evident as a build up of heavy dust and dirt on the outside of the closer and sometimes oil can be seen dripping from the door closer, which when extreme can often stain the floor coverings. Deterioration of the main spring always effects the operation of the door closing. In both these circumstances the door closers need to be replaced.
If the door closer is not replaced in reasonable time after it starts to show the first signs of trouble then and what often happens is that the doors functioning with the frame deteriorates. As the deterioration proceeds the brackets and fasteners attached to the door stress and strain such that the points of attachment become distended. In other words the aluminum or timber fails at these points resulting in misalignment of the attached structures on to the door and frame. Consequently the door and frame exhibit operation failure. Sooner or later, the operation of the door fails completely and the door is unable to move and lock compromising security.
When your door closer and associated brackets and pivots have been repaired/replaced and the new fasteners are secure, the door has to be fitted squarely into the rebate of the door jamb such that the gaps around the edge of the door are even and correct.
