Pickerington Garage Door Spring FAQS:
-Broken garage door springs are very common. They simply wear out and break from metal fatigue. How can you tell if your Pickerington spring is broken? The metal springs above the garage door will be split and broken.
-The most common symptom of a broken garage door spring is that when you activate the garage door opener to open the door, it either doesn't open at all or goes up slightly and stops.
-Some makes and models of garage door openers will open the garage door even with a broken spring. The door may be moving slower or struggling to open.
-Springs act as the counterbalance to offset the weight of the garage door, without them you couldn't lift the door.
-Torsion springs are normally located on the wall right above the garage door and can be seen when the garage door is closed, unless you have a Wayne Dalton garage door. If you have a Wayne Dalton garage door the springs are located inside of metal tubes.
-A one car garage door usually has ONE torsion spring and a doublewide garage door usually has TWO torsion springs.
-Continuing to use your Pickerington garage door with a broken spring can cause damage to both the garage door and the garage door opener!
