    Explain how the center brace is causing door to bind.

    Is door hitting rails when moving? Should have 1/2 inch space each side from door to rail. If not adjust rail.

    Is it a wooden door? If only 1 panel hits the track(center brace)? It sounds like it is warped. Sometimes the top panel will bind if the door connector is set too low. Same for steel doors, some of the light doors will bend in a heavy wind. Look across the panel and see if it bows in the middle.
