What Are The Signs Of Damaged Garage Door Torsion Springs?

It can be a little difficult to pinpoint the actual problem when your garage door stops working smoothly. It may be that the garage door torsion springs are broken. When this is the case, you can get the door working smoothly again by simply changing the springs. But how can you be sure that the problem is with the torsion springs? Here are some signs of damaged garage door torsion springs to watch out for:

  • The garage door refuses to open at all
  • The cables attached to the springs are dangling
  • You heard a loud bang from the garage
  • The garage door is looking crooked or off-track when opening and closing
  • The top section of the garage door will be bent or misaligned
  • The garage door opens up some inches and then closes
  • The garage door falls faster or harshly while closing
  • You check the spring and observe that it is stretched out
  • You notice that there is a 2-inch gap in the torsion spring.

How Do I Choose A Garage Door Torsion Spring?

When you have a damaged garage door torsion spring, it is important to replace it. It is also very important that you measure the torsion spring in order to choose or order the right replacement. Here is exactly how you make the right choice:

  • Length – you don’t have to unwind the spring to measure the length. Just measure from the first to the last coil after loosening setscrew on the winding cone.
  • Wire Size – this is simply the thickness of the wire used in the torsion spring. You can measure it by inserting the tape between the first two coils and stretching it to where the 10th and 11th coil meet. Ensure that the coils are compressed while measuring.
  • Spring Wind – a left hand wind spring will be placed on the right side of the door while a right hand wind spring will be placed on the left. You should know whether a spring is left or right hand wind by observing carefully.
  • Inner Diameter – this can be very difficult to measure but you can look for the markings on the side of winding cones.

Asides from the above-mentioned aspects, you should consider such other things as the weight of your garage door and the manufacturing material. It is also safer and better to hire only certified garage door technicians to fix any garage door issue.
