Double Spring Change in Delta – Broken Springs
Broken Springs in Delta Require Double Spring Change
This Monday started out with a double spring change in Ladner / Delta area. Our technician on first inspection determined that both springs were broken. A garage door motor with broken springs will start lifting the door and usually stop only when the door is lifted a foot or two. If this behavior is what you are experiencing you most likely have a broken spring. When the springs are broken it is essential that you replace the springs before the motor is used. If the garage door motor is activated when a spring is broken, the motor will attempt to lift more weight then what the motor is designed to lift.
