The cables on the garage door play an important role in its operation. The cables lift the heavy door as it opens, and they also help to maintain a balanced weight distribution. There are usually two coiled cables on each side of the door, running from the bottom roller brackets up to the drums at the top. Whenever these have been broken, you should contact a specialist service like ours immediately. We can replace your faulty parts to ensure that your system operates properly and that it can be used safely.
What Happens If a Cable Breaks?
If you have a broken cable, the door will no longer be able to open or close. This is why it’s important to check these periodically for wear and tear and to have them replaced if necessary. When it comes to broken torsion and extension springs, again the system won’t be able to close properly either. If a spring breaks or cable snaps, make sure to contact a garage specialist for immediate part replacement. If any of these parts stops working properly, it is essential to get them replaced for your own safety and convenience.
Most Common Issues
There are several reasons why your system has issues. First and foremost, old cables. Over time, rust starts to build on the metal cables, which causes them to break. You can also get jammed cables when the wire comes off the pulley. In that case, it requires the unwound cables to be pulled out and properly put back in place.
Identifying broken cables is easy: commonly, the doors may start to shake during operation, resulting from a misalignment of the door. The lift system may also make loud noises when the garage door opens and closes, due to the motor exerting more energy than necessary.
