We were thrilled to have serviced a broken garage door spring repair for a client in St. Louis Park, MN recently. And if you're unlucky enough to have a broken garage door spring, we feel for you — and we're here to help you out.

We know how frustrating it is to be in a hurry and have to pry your garage door open and pull it closed. It's not only time-consuming but also potentially dangerous, especially if you're not careful assuming your door is on the ground level.

Luckily, there are some things you can do to make sure your door stays in working order without breaking the bank. If you don't want to hire a professional to fix your garage door spring for you, here's how to repair garage door springs on your own:

1.) Check Your Springs 

The first thing you should do when your garage door won't stay open or close is by checking your spring for damage. If there's any rust or corrosion on the spring or its attachment points, it could be causing issues with how smoothly the door opens and closes. You need to find out what type of garage door spring you have, as well as its length. You'll also need to know how many coils the spring has and what size they are. This can be tricky because most springs are covered by a metal sleeve with a serial number (also called a tag). The tag will tell you what kind of garage door spring you have and how long it is.

You may need to replace these parts before proceeding further.

2.) Check the pulleys.

If you have a torsion spring system, then check if the pulleys have stretched out or not. If they have stretched out too much, then they must be replaced with new ones. The same is true for extension springs as well - if they are worn down then they must be replaced as well.

3.) Replace Damaged Parts

A damaged spring will cause problems with opening and closing your garage door smoothly — it may even lead to injury if it breaks while someone is trying to get into or out of their garage. When replacing a broken spring, make sure that you replace all of its components at once so that everything works together as expected. It could be worth the time and effort to replace your springs instead of simply fixing them if they're old or broken.

4.) Adjust the Tension

When adjusting the tension, make sure that all of the cables are attached properly and that they are not rubbing against each other. If there is any friction, it can cause damage to both the cable and the spring. To adjust the tension, simply turn the screw on top of each spring until there is no more movement in the door.

Things to consider

  • It is best to clamp the door to each track that is connected to your door to keep it secure while you operate.
  • To access it, unlatch the nuts and bolts on the spring brackets. To determine its length and diameter, measure it while it is completely relaxed.
  • If you need to search the secondary market for the precise spring you need, order a replacement straight from the manufacturer.
  • By fastening the cones on the center bracket and torsion tube, the spring is secured over the tube after being slid over it.
  • You can try doing the repair yourself. However, since it takes specialized tools, doing it yourself won't save you much money, and it can be risky if you don't know what you're doing. It's typically a smart idea to hire a professional.

Doing it yourself can be exhausting and dangerous

DIY can not only be exhausting, but it can be quite costly and hazardous as well. We're not trying to scare you, but we're also not going to pretend that you can do it with your eyes closed and one hand tied behind your back.

So if you're going to do it yourself, please just make sure you know what you're doing and don't take any shortcuts. Also — and this may seem like a no-brainer — make sure the door is aligned properly before proceeding.

If it's already off-kilter, call in the professionals with years of experience who know how to properly align it so that it works correctly and safely.

Garage Door Spring Repair

Garage door springs are an essential part of your garage door. They allow you to open and close your garage door with ease. If you are having trouble with your garage door spring, then it may be time for a repair or replacement.

There are two types of garage door springs: torsion and extension. Torsion garage door springs are designed to lift the door by winding them around a pulley that is attached to the center of the ceiling track. Extension garage doors have a rubberized belt that runs along a track on the inside of each side of the door. The tension in each type of spring is different, so they function differently as well.

If one or both of your springs break, then it can cause severe damage to your garage door and opener if not repaired quickly. In addition, broken springs can lead to injury if left unchecked for too long because they can become loose enough that they could fall at any moment without warning.
