Common causes of your garage door roller problem:

Other problems are, but not limited to, shaking door movement, loud noise coming from operation of door and roller bearing failure.  If the internal bearings of a roller seize, then the roller iteself can fall off causing the door to come off the track.

Maintenance is extremely important for proper function and safety of your door system.  Door rollers are ideally lubricated with silicone spray. You can also use household oil as a substitute, if silicone spray is not available.
