Repairing a garage door spring is a dangerous job because it holds a lot of friction.
Your overhead door’s springs are responsible for raising the weight of the door.
The coils that generate friction are pushed down when the door is lowered to the ground.
The springs make it a lot easier for the opener to raise the entire garage door as needed because resistance is present.
When your spring breaks, you will most likely hear it.
But if you don’t feel it right away as the spring breaks, you’ll know you have a cracked spring if your door does not lift when you press the opening button or manually raise it.
