Torsion springs are only designed to operate on for approx. 20,000 – 30,000 cycles. These are a highly wound steel spring that once the cycle life has been reach, they snap. 

4 Signs Your Garage Door Spring Is Broken

Quite often when garage doors remain closed but you can still hear the motor turning, it’s because the torsion springs have had it!

  • Bouncing – Does your garage door bounce?
  • Jamming – Is your garage door jamming?
  • Sticking – Does your garage door appear to stick in certain places?
  • Noisy – If your garage door is noisy this means it’s not working at its full potential.

Why do Garage Door Springs Break? 

  • You have not had your door serviced regularly, meaning your springs have been under pressure.
  • They’ve been made from poor quality material, or aren’t manufactured well.
  • Age & weather conditions have deteriorated the materials used to make garage torsion springs. 
  • They’re at the end of their life cycle.



Garage door spring replacement is a dangerous procedure that must be done by a highly trained technician. Garage door springs are wound with high tension and can cause costly damage to your home and garage door, as well as serious injury to yourself or anyone else around. 


If you use your automatic opener to open your garage door while you have broken springs; it will put unnecessary strain on your electric opener and may potentially burn out the internal motor costing you more money to replace / repair.
