Identify What Springs You Have

Before diagnosing any particular problem with your springs, you need to know what type you have. The two most common spring setups are Torsion springs and Extension springs. Torsion springs are usually located above the door opening and held in place by a stationary bar secured to the wall. A long spring is wrapped around the bar as the door opens and closes which is tensioned enough to counterbalance the weight of the door, thus making it easy to lift manually.
Extension springs are a more traditional coiled spring with connector hooks at either end that holds the door to the opener. You’ll most likely have two springs, one on each side by the rollers, which create a similar counterbalancing effect as the torsion springs.

What To Do If Your Springs Are Bad

Elite Garage of Salt Lake sees all manner of garage door problems, so our fully licensed technicians can diagnose and repair most of them. It might help to know what to look for first when considering fixing your spring system, so here are a few tips you should be aware of.

Springs Should Be Replaced At The Same Time.

Since most garage door systems have at least two springs doing heavy duty, it’s always wise to replace them both at the same time. Having one new spring and one old spring can prove dangerous should the old one give out. You don’t want your garage door slamming down on you or your car because of worn tension springs.

Different Springs For Different Systems.

If you’re replacing your springs, it’s important to make sure you have the right spring for your application. The springs found in a one car garage door application won’t be the same thickness or have the same tension as springs on a two car garage door system. Without the proper balance of counter tension, you could damage your garage door opener or drastically reduce the life of your system, so it’s important to double check that you have the right parts for the job.
