Richmond Overhead Side Extension Spring Damaged
Garage Door in Richmond with Damaged Overhead Side Extension Requires Repair
In Richmond a garage door was not opening properly because of a damaged Overhead Side Extension spring. You will see in the picture that the spring steel broke away from the bracket resulting in the motor not being able to lift the door all the way open. A motor that attempts to lift the door with a broken spring will error out with the door only lifting about a foot or two up. Please do not try to open your door with a broken spring, the door is in a dangerous state and requires a professional to repair it.
Repairing Side Extension Springs
Once the spring was repaired the door was able to be lifted with the automatic garage door motor without any risk of further damage.
