Ways to Know If Your Garage Door Has Broken Spring           

The function of the garage door spring is to aid in the lifting operation of the door. Though the springs are designed to last for many years after installation, they may break or damage when you least expected.

The garage door is frequently used and the components are exposed to wear and tear. If you have a damaged spring, the door becomes dangerous and can cause a fatal domestic accident. It is also a security risk when the garage door cannot close or open properly. That is why as a homeowner, it’s your responsibility to ensure that your garage door operates smoothly. 

Therefore, you should be on the look-out for signs indicating that the spring or the garage door is faulty.

Here are some of the ways to know if your garage door has broken springs.

Frequent Noise

If your garage makes some cranky noise while opening or closing, it is a sign that both springs are aging, poorly lubricated, or corroded. But, if the spring breaks spontaneously there will be a loud noise.

The noise is a result of the breakage of the torsion spring. When this happens, the resulting crash of the door is usually a loud bang. Though the spring may rewind in a few seconds, for the safety of your household, no one should attempt to open or close the door.

Spring breaks can be very startling. The safety of your home and loved ones should be your priority in such a situation. Call experts from Bob's Advance Garage Doors for a prompt solution.

Jerky Garage Door

In case the operation of your garage door seems jerky, the problem might be from a broken spring. Other common causes can be bent track, bad rollers, debris, or loose screws. 

You need to have a closer look at your door to know if the jerkiness is a result of too much friction or that the springs have broken. 

Uneven Garage Door Opening

When one side of your garage door tilts downwards while opening, it shows there might be a problem with the spring or cables. This is because the extension springs are installed at both sides of the door but one of the springs can damage or break, then, the door will become unbalanced.

To avoid injury and your garage door from becoming stuck in its track, you need to have the springs or cables changed by a professional.

The Door Simply Refuses To Open

An obvious sign that the spring has been damaged is when the garage door does not open. It starts from becoming very heavy, then stiffen, and will not open.

It could be harmful if you try forcing the door to open. The best option is to schedule an inspection from a professional.
