Why Do Springs Break?
Torsion springs break for a number of reasons, largely due to the sheer amount of force that’s held within them while they’re coiled. The constant rolling and unrolling of the spring are enough to break it down over time, causing it to snap and unravel. Impediments can also cause damage to the spring, such as items shoved up into your garage’s rafters. Finally, resistance in the tracks as your door opens or closes can put excess stress on the spring and induce damage.
No matter what causes your spring to snap, it’s important to let a professional remove and replace the damaged spring. Not only will a pro be able to safely facilitate this job, they’ll also be able to determine if any peripheral repairs need to be made.
