How to Tell if Garage Door Springs Are Broken

When a garage door spring breaks, it can trigger a variety of serious problems. Several different symptoms might indicate that it needs replacement:

  • Coil gap: If you look above your garage’s entrance and see a gap in one of the springs, it has broken. You may notice unwound coils. Remember to inspect this part before it breaks so you know how it should look.
  • Opens slightly: A possible sign of this problem is a unit that moves less than seven inches up the tracks before stopping. It does this to minimize equipment damage and safety hazards.
  • Loose cables: When cables slacken or get displaced, you might need a new spring. Some homeowners mistakenly believe that the cables have failed in this situation.
  • Hard to open: You may have this problem when you experience difficulty opening a door and it feels heavier than usual. If you own an automatic opener, it might work slowly or damage the top panel.
  • Getting stuck: A broken spring can cause a garage door to become stuck. However, this issue has several other possible causes, such as track damage, dirty sensors and inadequate track lubrication.
  • Odd movement: If an automatic opener moves your door in a “jerky” manner or shuts it unusually quickly, a snapped coil could be to blame. The system needs immediate repair.
  • Appears crooked: Another potential sign of this problem is that one side of the door hangs lower than the other. This happens because a coil on the left or right side has broken.
  • Big “bang”: If you’re at home when the spring snaps, you might hear a loud noise. To find out if it produced the sound, test your door for proper operation.

It’s quite hazardous to work on these springs, so you should strongly consider calling a skilled expert for repair or replacement services. Please contact us if you suspect your garage door spring is broken.
