Where to locate the Garage Door Springs
When a torsion spring is broken, the door isn’t going to lift. You aren’t even going to be able to manually lift the door without help because the door is very heavy. Plus, it’s not recommended to try and manually lift a door that has a broken torsion spring because of the risk of injury.
If you aren’t sure whether the garage door spring is broken or not, look at the spring that is around 12 inches above the top of the garage door when it is closed. You will see two long coil springs that are either black or silver. If either of the springs doesn’t look right, chances are you have a torsion spring issue and the door isn’t going to lift. The function of the spring is to balance gravity and the weight of the door against each other so the garage door opener doesn’t have to use a lot of pull to open the door. When the springs are compromised, gravity wins and the door won’t raise. When the springs are working, the door feels lighter than it actually is.
