Garage Door Spring Repair New York

Before we talk about a broken garage door spring and the reasons, we would like to make clear, that an overhead garage door with a broken spring, whether it is a torsion spring system or extension spring SHOULD NOT BE USED, and should be repaired by a trained garage door technician. Using an overhead garage door with a broken spring, can lead to a bigger damage, and can even be deadly.
Most garage doors in New York are equipped with one of two springs systems: Extension springs – where the springs are mounted above the tracks (on the sides of the door), and the other spring system is the Torsion spring system, where the springs are centered at the top of the garage door.
If you ever wondered what is the purpose of installing spring for your garage door, and it does not matter if it is a garage door in New York or a garage door in Redondo Beach, is that the springs are the force which make it easier to use the heavy overhead door. A spring system which is installed and adjust correctly, can make it possible to open even a heavy duty commercial overhead door with a simple push. Any spring that was correctly installed, and that perfectly match the garage door which it need to operate, should last for many years, as long as the spring – like other parts of the garage door – are being maintained every 3-6 months. 

Here is an example of extension springs:

What to do if the spring snapped?

When a garage door spring break, (In most cases the spring will snap when the door is down in closed position, when the spring is under the most amount of tension), and it usually followed by a loud and scary noise of a spring which was under a large amount of tension and suddenly snapped. If it is an extension spring system, and you do have safety cables installed, then the break of the spring shouldn’t be followed with a damage, since the safety cables restrain the spring, and prevent it from damaging the other parts of the overhead door, objects which located near it, or people. If you do not have safety cables installed, you should contact a garage door repair man in New York to come and install them. The extension spring safety cables may not be essential to way the door to your garage operating, but they can protect the garage door and the people who uses it, in case the spring will break.

Types of Garage Door Springs

There are 2 main types of overhead doors in New York, extension springs and torsion springs. We would like to go over the types of springs and the way to deal with them in case one of them or both of the snap. But no matter what spring system is installed, and no matter if it is a garage door in Westchester New York, or a garage door in Mt Vernon NY, the best way to deal with broken spring will be to completely stop using it.

The Extension spring system

If you would like to know if your garage door is working with extension spring, simply go to your garage and look at the door. If you see that the springs are installed on top of the tracks of the door, and the springs are parallel to them, that mean that you have extension spring system. Most doors use 2 springs (1 on each side), and sometime there are doors with 4 extension springs (2 on each side).
The extension spring system is usually installed in lighter doors, like the single garage doors you can find in New York, and replacing a broken spring shouldn’t be a complicated project for a trained technician. During years of servicing garage doors in New York, we learned which ones are the most popular extension springs we need to replace almost on a daily base, so we carry them with us.

Safety Cables

Earlier we explained the need for the safety cables, and how they can protect from damage and even injuries in some cases. And the best way to explain that is with an example from life: We once sold a remote control to a customer in NYC, and once we noticed that his garage door isn’t equipped with safety cables, we recommended him to install them. He thought that there is no need for that, and said that he prefer not to. After 2 months we received a phone call from the same customer, who asked for a service again, and when we arrived, we discovered that one of the springs snapped, and the spring damaged the top section of the door, so now he needed to replace a section beside the spring. If that customer would of listen to us, and allowed us to install safety cables, he could save hundreds of dollars.

Torsion Spring System

Torsion springs are usually installed for the heavier garage doors, especially for commercial doors in New York. To check if your door is working with a torsion spring system, look at the door and locate the springs. If they are in the top, close to the center, and wrapped around a shaft, it mean that your door is working with torsion spring system.
There are many sizes of torsion springs. And we are doing our best to carry most sizes with us. But to carry all sizes of torsion springs is simple impossible, since the options are endless. With so many types and weights of overhead doors in New York, it is almost impossible to carry everything. But what we do, is carrying a large amount of springs, to fit most of the overhead doors in New York.
Unlike the extension spring system, torsion springs do not need safety cables. But what they do need is more careful when a spring break. Trying to use a garage door with broken spring can be both dangerous, and may lead to a bigger damage.

Here is an example of a broken torsion spring:

Do it yourself spring repairs

We are often beings asked: “Can I replace the spring by myself”? We try and avoid answering the question directly, because the garage door services, whether it is a garage door in the Bronx, or a garage door repairs in New York, can get complicated from time to time. It start from the type and the size of the door, through what exactly the problem is, and ending with what part do you need. And this is just for the door itself. But you and your knowledge and equipment is also an important variable in the equation.
But at the same time, the garage doors in New York often effected by the extreme weather, and it may cause to problems that can be easily repaired by doing it yourself, and with a basic set of tools. BUT, spring replacement is not a repair we would recommend to do by yourself, unless you know exactly what you are doing, you have the right part, and the right tools.
And we would like to make it clear, you may find a garage door supplier in New York to sell you a spring, but many springs may look alike to you, when they are actually different from each other. So make sure that you have the right spring for the job, since a spring that looks the same, or which is almost the same is not enough.

It can be a garage door in the Bronx, garage door in New City, or garage door in Todt Hill, if your overhead door went out of the tracks, do not use it, and call a garage door specialist to repair it for you.

There are many garage door problems, which can prevent garage door from working properly. It can be a spring that snapped, a cable that snapped, or a panel that snapped. But one of the most dangerous problems, that we deal with almost every day while repairing garage doors in New York is out of tracks garage door. Whether it is a garage door in Brooklyn, commercial garage door in Pelham Manor, or out of track overhead door in Westchester County. If you will look at your garage door, you will find that what hold overhead doors in NYC on the tracks are the rollers. When the roller jump out of the track, the door cannot, and shouldn’t be operated, until a garage door expert will put it back on the tracks. You may consider pushing the roller or the rollers back into the tracks, and not using a qualified garage door technician in Westchester County to do the repair, but that will be a mistake, since when garage door in New York is out of tracks, there is a reason for that, and the reason should be taken care of before the door can be used again. If you will not address the issue, the door can come out of tracks again, and the next time can be even more dangerous, since the overhead door can fall completely out of the tracks.

But that doesn’t change the need for a strong and reliable garage door opener.

The safety sensors installed on each side of the entrance (Close to the tracks and no more than 6 inches above the floor), they are facing each other, in order for the laser beam between them to work efficiently. Whenever the automated overhead door is in movement, and someone cross the laser beam, the garage door will stop its movement and reverse. This way, whatever it is that crossed the beam and entered the door’s path, whether it is a person, a pet, a car, or any other thing, is protected from being hurt by the door.
