Some FAQs on Garage Door Spring Repair
Q: Can I have my garage door spring repaired, or do I need to replace it?
A: Even though we talk about garage door spring 'repairs', when the spring itself is broken, it needs to be replaced. When you consider that garage doors can weigh several hundred pounds or more, and that the springs carry the brunt of that weight each time it opens and closes, plus the fact that they get opened and closed multiple times per day, every day... it's no wonder that the springs eventually give out. And when one goes, usually the other one is close to giving out on you too. So if you've been told that you should replace both springs, and not just one, the person isn't just trying to sell you something you don't need... they're trying to save you the headache of being in the exact same position of having your door not work properly again in the very near future.
Q: How do I know if my garage door spring is broken?
A: As mentioned above, since the spring is primarily responsible for moving the significant weight of your door (not the garage door opener, like some people think). When one spring breaks your door will have a hard time opening and closing and will feel very heavy. Your automatic opener will probably start making a lot more noise, too.
If you're unsure whether a spring has broken, DO NOT pull the emergency release handle to disconnect the opener from the door if the door is in an open position without being aware that the entire door may come crashing down.
This is why you should never leave a door with a broken spring open while waiting for repairs unless you block the door open. It's too dangerous to risk having someone not know the full weight of the door isn't controlled, which could lead to serious injuries.
If you're going to block the tracks to keep the door open, make sure you block it on both sides. You can never be too careful.
