Broken Garage Door Spring
The coils usually break and split the spring in two or three pieces. Before springs are removed, their tension must be unloaded. The replacement of springs is best to be done by professionals, as it is a dangerous task prone to accidents. Attention is required when the springs are broken. Although the garage door cannot be opened without the assistance of springs, it's best to avoid attempting to open the door while the broken springs are not yet replaced to avoid injuries.
Broken Springs Require Immediate Replacement
Springs might break due to various reasons. If they are not maintained properly, their life cycle is completed or if the overhead door remains open during a storm, springs might break. They can also break if they are not handled properly or are the wrong choice for the existing garage door. If they break during repairs or when the door is moving, there is a high possibility that they will snap and fly in the garage. Otherwise, you will just observe the spring cut in two.
