The most common issue with a garage door that will not move up and down properly is a problem with the garage door spring system. Garage Door Springs are instrumental to a working garage door as they generate most of the heavy lifting and controlling the balance of your garage door; Whether they be torsion or extension springs.
Eventually, the garage door springs will break. When this happens we urge you not to continue operating your garage door as well as replacing the springs yourself.. It can become hazardous to you and can cause more damage to rest of the garage door components.

Garage Door Cable Repairs:
Cables on the garage door play a role similar to the sensors. They increase the safety of your garage door. Cables do this by keeping your garage door from not swinging wildly should the springs break. In other words, they keep the garage door balanced. As your springs begin to wear down over time the cables are a very useful instrument for your safety.
Garage door cables can and do break on occasion. One reason the cable might break is simply aged. Cables experience wear and tear just like any other working part. Over time, the cables can weaken, rust and eventually snap. Rust can corrode the cable, and unless you catch it in time, the rust will have eaten through the cable.
Fraying is another problem that causes garage door cables to snap. Garage door cables work the same way as a rope. A lot of little wire cables are wound together to make a stronger, thicker cable. If one of these little cables breaks, it could fray the other little cables around it until the whole thing eventually snaps. No matter the cause, a broken cable is a big problem and warrants a call to Overhead Door of Southern California.
