How to Spot a Broken Garage Door Spring

A broken garage door spring is usually fairly easy to identify. Your door will have difficulties opening and closing, and a visual inspection of your springs will reveal warping or gaps between the coils. Depending on whether you have torsion springs or extension springs, you’ll need to look in different places in your garage.

Torsion springs are always installed above your garage door and extend and contract when opening and closing the door. Extension springs are attached to the counterbalance assembly on your garage ceiling and contract when your garage door is opened. These should be attached to a safety cable to prevent them from flying off the shaft if they break.

Both types of springs should function properly for at least 10,000 cycles, but this depends on the environment and how well the springs are maintained.
