Why is my Garage Door Stuck?
Without troubleshooting the cause of a broken garage door, it’s difficult to say what caused it to break. There are a number of reasons why a garage door can get stuck, including an obstruction on the track, a broken spring, or just bad weather. Extremes in temperature can cause cables and components to become brittle, and ice can build up in the springs and mechanisms of a garage door, causing it to fail.
It’s tempting to look for the cause of your broken garage door yourself, but if you don’t know what you’re looking for it can be difficult to know what’s broken.
When your garage door is jammed, it’s safest to turn off the opener and call an expert. If you can unhook your door from the opening mechanism and close it manually then do so, but if you feel any resistance when you try to move the door, stop immediately to prevent further damage.
Hire a Professional to Fix Your Broken Garage Door
It’s tempting to search online for how to repair a stuck garage door, but doing a DIY garage door repair is never a good idea. Garage doors are large and heavy, weighing up to 400 pounds, and if you can’t support a door properly during maintenance you risk doing even more damage. A simple mistake can lead to a very expensive repair bill, or even result in the door having to be entirely replaced.
Garage doors are moved using torsion springs, which are always under pressure when working correctly. In fact, the pressure of a torsion spring is equal to the weight of the garage door, meaning there are hundreds of pounds of pressure just waiting to explode. If you try to fix your garage door on your own, you risk releasing that pressure. Broken torsion springs can cause serious bodily injury or even death, which is why we always recommend leaving any garage door repair to the professionals.
