How To Lift A Garage Door With A Broken Spring

Garage door springs are an important balancing part of garages. If your garage doesn’t easily open, it may have a problem. However, you can’t just assume it is directly from a broken spring. So, to make everything clear, we have gathered some information for you. Throughout this article, we will go through the purpose of a garage door spring, testing if it is the garage spring causing the problem, ways to open the garage door if a spring is broken, possible dangers of trying to fix springs by yourself, and how Bob’s Advance Garage Doors can help. So, let’s start.

What Is The Purpose of a Garage Spring?

Garage door springs are important for supporting the door and balancing the torsions on the system. Through this system, we can open heavy garage doors with small mechanisms. Without a spring that works effectively, the garage door may not open and close easily. So, due to its important role in our garages, many people blame springs for any problems.

Testing If It Is the Garage Spring Causing Problems

A couple of factors can show us the cause of garage door problems. If you have a garage spring over ten years old, there is a high probability that the springs wore out and need to be replaced. Malfunctioning springs also make a loud noise that shows that it needs replacement. If they are new, try checking the garage door opener. Replace the batteries and try opening the door again. If none of the options above apply to you, call Bob's Advance Garage Doors today.

How to Open the Garage If a Spring is Broken

Trying to open a garage when the spring is broken can be risky without professional guidance. However, in case of an emergency, here is how you open the garage door:

  • Go to the center of the door and keep your hands and feet behind the place that the door usually shuts on top of.
  • Lift the door from the center until it settles on the rails
  • The door won’t stay open, so hold it safely until the end and close it as soon as you finish your task.

What Can Happen if You Tried to Fix a Broken Spring by Yourself

If you try to fix a broken spring by yourself, there may be significant hazardous endings that will potentially harm you, the property, and the door. If you have a broken spring, don’t risk it. Call a reliable service today to get your garage door repaired.
