Garage Door Won’t Open

Broken Garage Door Torsion Spring

If you push the button on the remote control and the door doesn’t open, it might be a broken spring. Most doors weigh 150-300 pounds and the springs lift all the weight.

If a spring breaks and you need to open the door immediately, you will have to lift that weight yourself because most garage door openers are not strong enough to do it.
