Garage Door Broken Spring Repair

08/23/2014 Back To Blog

The working mechanism of a garage door is simply amazing but complicated. It is a machine that weighs an average of 300 lbs, so imagine the danger it can bring to you and your family if it malfunctions. One part that plays an important role in its function is the garage door spring. There are two types of springs: extension springs and torsion springs. The one located on each side of the door and stretched on an overhead track is the extension spring. The one mounted on the header above the door is the torsion spring. To repair or replace broken springs is a job intended for expert garage door repair professionals like us. It is not worth the risk to try doing it yourself because you may get injured.

Garage Door Broken Spring RepairA trained technician repairing or replacing a broken garage door spring must follow safety precautionary measures to ensure that no serious injury will happen. Safety goggles and gloves are important for protection. Once all the tools are assembled, the broken spring must be examined. It is advisable to replace both springs even if the other one may still look good because once one of them breaks, the other one takes on added stress and might break soon. Check the springs and get the right measurement to make sure that the replaced spring is the same size as the broken spring. The door should be disconnected from the power source during the process of replacing. Once done, check if your door is balanced.

Importance of knowing the right spring measurement

Since the spring carries a very heavy load, its measurement must be compatible with the weight of the garage door. Doors are different from one another in terms of weight and type. Each part complements the other. It will not work if the parts don’t match and if you replace a broken spring with one of a different size. This might lead to further damage, which means more expenses on your end.
