Double Spring Change in South Delta – before and after

South Delta Double Spring Change

With this service call we were working with a double spring change in South Delta. Our customer called in saying that they were unable to open their garage door but they could still hear the motor engaging but nothing was happening. Right away we knew that it must’ve been a broken spring because the motor was still engaging. As you can see in the before picture, the spring on the right has a little gap in the middle. That gap that is visible in the springs length is what you do not want to see. Springs do have a Rating of 10,000 cycles, which on average is about 6-8 years of garage door use. When you have a door with two springs it is always recommended to change them both because both springs have the same cycle count.
