Broken Spring Repair

Des Moines Broken Spring Repair & Replacement

With all the ups and downs a garage door goes through on a daily basis, the springs will eventually break down and need to be replaced.  If your garage door isn’t opening properly, there is a good chance that you have a broken spring.  Springs generally last about 10,000 cycles.  A cycle is defined as up and down one time.  We recommend that both springs be replaced when one breaks since they both have approximately the same lifetime.  If one is broken, you can pretty much bet that the other one will follow soon.

There are several kinds of garage door springs utilized.  The two most common are:

Torsion Springs are the standard springs utilized throughout most of the garage door industry.  These springs can be found inside, just above the closed garage door on the torsion shaft.  These springs are under extremely high tension and can cause serious, sometimes fatal injuries to those inexperienced with them.  Special precautions and know-how are required to replace torsion springs, which is why Amega recommends homeowners call professionals to repair broken springs.

Extension Springs are counterbalance springs which provide lifting power by stretching.  Their function is to counterbalance the weight of the garage door.  Generally mounted above the horizontal tracks and mounted to the rear track hangers on each side of the garage.  They are attached at the other end of the spring, to a pulley.  As the door travels, the springs stretch, or compress, to balance the door weight.
