Broken Garage Door Spring

When you find yourself with a broken garage door spring, the first thing I can say is BE CAREFUL. The springs are what lift the entire weight of the garage door. So if you do have a broken spring, then the door may be under its full weight. Also do not use your automatic garage door opener with a broken spring, it could permanently damage the motor. Disconnect it using the emergency release cord as long as the door is in the closed position only, or just unplug it so that nobody accidentally uses it.

Trying to open the garage door is dangerous, but if you need to get your car out, you can try lifting the door slowly with a couple of other people and you can use the opener to help lift the door up, although this is not recommended.

Replacing a broken spring is a job that should be left to a garage door professional. There may even be a second spring that is still ok, but it is under a great amount of tension. The tension on garage door springs and the weight of the door can lead to major injury if things go wrong. So please, unless you know what you are doing, don’t mess with the springs.

Balanced Garage DoorOver time, garage door springs tend to relax and weaken a little bit. This means that you may have an unbalanced garage door. You always want your garage door balanced for optimum operation. If your door is heavy, then it can put a strain on your automatic garage door opener. Obviously this can burn out the opener motor and lessen the life of your opener dramatically, or even permanently damage it. Also it can become dangerous, because the door can just free-fall with a lot of weight, which could cause major injury or even death.

To test if your garage door is balanced properly, follow these few steps.
1. Bring your door to the closed position
2. Pull the emergency release cord.
3. Slowly lift the garage door manually
If the garage door is hard to lift or it comes up too strong, then it needs to be balanced. Your garage door should stay in place when the door is opened halfway, without falling or opening.

For help with balancing your garage door, Garage Door Kings can help. Please contact us at 909-440-0305 to schedule an appointment or visit us at

Safety Photo Eye SensorsTime and time again, we get service calls for a very simple garage door repair problem with an even simpler solution you can do yourself. The garage door is not closing  all the way with the garage door opener.

In many cases, the issue is the safety photo eyes sensors are out of alignment. The photo eyes transmit an invisible beam from one photo eye to the other across the width of the door. It is a safety feature, that when the beam is broken, the garage door will not close, and will reverse to the open position.

Now many times, a person will accidentally bump the photo eye with their foot, shovel, etc. Obviously, this will misalign the photo eyes. Most photo eyes have a little LED light that is lit up when it is properly aligned, otherwise the LED will not be lit or flashing. All you have to do is adjust them so that they are transmitting and receiving the invisible beam, then your garage door should close properly. Doing this yourself will save you money, instead of calling a garage door technician to come out and do it for you.
