All this month we’ve been talking about the signs of broken torsion springs. Torsion springs are the most common type of garage door springs. However, some of you might still have an older and more dangerous extension spring system. If you’re not sure about the age of your extension spring system, be sure to be aware of these signs that will let you know if one or both are failing. For quality Palm Springs garage door service that you can trust, call Hanson Overhead. We’re your local garage door experts for Riverside County. Please call today to find out why and to hear about our specials.
Common Signs of Failing or Broken Extension Garage Door Springs
Extension Springs Cables, Pulleys, or Other Parts Dangling Down
When an extension spring breaks, all of the tension is released in a violent fashion. This will cause the cable and pulley system to give way. When this occurs, the springs, cables, or other parts will probably be hanging down.
Jerky Garage Door Movement
If your garage door is closing and opening all herky-jerky like, then one of the extension springs has either broken or is failing. When you see this sign, you should know that one side of the garage door is not being operated in a controlled manner.
The Garage Door Hangs Crooked
Another common sign that an extension spring is broken or failing is that the door will hang crooked while in the open position. This is because there is no support on one side and the opener only supports the center of the garage door.
