Torsion Springs

Residential Broken Torsion Spring Repair

At Crawford Door Sales, we service, adjust and replace damaged residential torsion springs. The garage door torsion spring system — mounted above your garage door — helps counterbalance the weight of the garage door, allowing the garage door opener to steadily, smoothly and seemingly effortlessly lift and lower the door as prompted. Most of the time when the torsion spring breaks, it makes a loud banging sound. To determine if the torsion spring is broken, you can also visibly inspect it, looking for visible gaping between the spring’s coils.

Importance of Having Your Broken Torsion Spring Repaired

Besides the obvious inconvenience of a broken torsion spring preventing you from quickly and easily getting your car inside or out of your garage door, damaged spring systems can also present several other challenges. Without the proper part to help counterbalance the door’s weight, the opener will overwork, stripping its internal gears and burning out the motor. Broken torsion springs can also cause stress on other garage door parts, like the rollers, tracks and cables.

Can I Replace the Broken Garage Door Torsion Spring Myself?

Although it’s possible for homeowners to replace damaged torsion springs, it’s not recommended by garage door professionals. There are several significant safety concerns to consider — especially if you’re inexperienced with garage door repairs. Garage door spring replacement is one of the most hazardous residential repairs, and it’s a real possibility that homeowners could be severely injured by the damaged spring or heavy garage door if you don’t have the proper tools or understanding of safe, effective spring replacement.
