A Guide to Broken Garage Door Springs & What to Do

There’s a sinking feeling that comes with realizing your garage door isn’t working. Maybe it groans and sputters to a halt, or maybe it simply refuses to budge. One culprit high on the suspect list: broken garage door springs. At Advanced Door, we’re here to shed light on this common issue and guide you through the next steps.

The Mighty (But Fragile) Spring

Garage door springs are the invisible workhorses behind that smooth lift and lower. They store and release tension, counterbalancing the weight of the door. However, these springs endure a lot of stress with each use, and over time, they can wear out, snap, or become misaligned.

Signs of Spring Trouble:

  • Uneven or Jerky Movement: The door struggles to open or close smoothly.
  • Unusual Noises: Loud clanging or grinding noises during operation.
  • Off-Balance Door: The door seems heavier on one side or leans to one side when open.
  • Remote Control Issues: The remote works intermittently or not at all (though this could be other problems too).

DIY or Pro?

While some garage door repairs are DIY-friendly, springs are a different story. Garage door springs are under a lot of tension, and attempting to replace them yourself can be dangerous. A broken spring can release a tremendous amount of force, potentially causing serious injury. Here at Advanced Door, we strongly recommend calling a qualified technician for spring replacement.
