The function of your garage door springs is to lift the door when you manually open it or when you press the button on the remote or wall. Below are some of the symptoms of a broken garage door spring that will alert you to the problem so you can tell your garage door company what’s happening when you call them about repairs.

It’s crucial that you don’t attempt to repair broken garage door springs yourself. Over 20,000 injuries occur each year from people who aren’t qualified attempting to fix their own garage doors. Please keep yourself and your family safe and rely on a professional to get the job done.

The following signs will tell you that you need a garage door spring replacement.

• Garage door won’t open. If you press the button on your garage door opener and it doesn’t open, this is a sign that one of your garage door springs is broken. The function of the springs is to lift the garage door, so if you press the button and it doesn’t open or if you attempt to open it manually and it won’t go up, there’s a good chance one or both of the springs are broken.

• Springs are visibly broken. Another way to be certain that your garage door springs are broken is to look at them. The springs are visible in your garage door system, and you’ll be able to tell if they’re broken. If you’re having issues with your garage door opener, check out the springs.
