Double Spring Change in Delta – Broken Springs

Broken Springs in Delta Require Double Spring Change

This Monday started out with a double spring change in Ladner / Delta area.  Our technician on first inspection determined that both springs were broken.  A garage door motor with broken springs will start lifting the door and usually stop only when the door is lifted a foot or two.  If this behavior is what you are experiencing you most likely have a broken spring. When the springs are broken it is essential that you replace the springs before the motor is used.  If the garage door motor is activated when a spring is broken, the motor will attempt to lift more weight then what the motor is designed to lift.

You will see in the picture that the pickup bracket originally was attached to the door in a position that has very little strength. A couple heavy lifts will break the material around the pickup bracket. With continual operation of a door that has improperly configured springs, unwanted extreme stresses to parts that are not designed to take the weight of the door. Please call us if you have any concerns and we can arrange a technician to repair your door. Call 604-940-8918
