Signs of broken/damaged cables in the garage door in Los Angeles

The cable provides protection when the door spring breaks. For your safety, it is best to recognize the sign to replace the door cable.

Both the torsion cord and the extension spring cord are made of sturdy galvanized wire. Most homeowners use springs for years without replacing them. Also, sudden or gradual effects can damage the spring, resulting in damage or severe injury. These broken cable signs include:

  • The stuck Door: A broken garage door cable or drum can activate safety features and cause the door to get stuck until repairs are made. In this way, these cables work as safety guards.
  • Door unevenness: Damaged or Frayed cables can cause the garage door to behave erratically. If you notice that the door is tilted to one side, the garage door cable may be loose.
  • The door moves too fast: The cable keeps the garage door moving smoothly and steadily. If the door closes faster than expected, there is a possibility that the cable may be broken.

Cables can rust when exposed to elements and harsh weather for years. Cables can also wear from other garage door components over time. Broken or worn pulleys, cable drums, and springs are other things that can damage garage door cables. If your garage door is acting weird, it’s the right time to seek help from a technician for inspection. You may need to replace or repair the garage door cable.

Types of cables for garage doors

Primarily there are two types of garage door cables.

  • Torsion cable: The torsion cable extends upward from the door through the cable drum. The torsion spring is mounted on the garage door along the center.
  • Extension Spring Cable: The extension spring cable attaches to the extension spring; it is a long spring that runs along both sides of the garage door track and attaches to the pulley at the end of the spring.
