Torsion springs operate above the garage door and they are what lift the actual weight of the garage door. Garage doors weigh between 160 to 275 pounds and can only be lifted with working springs. Serious damage could be the result of using the garage door opener to lift a garage door with a broken spring and even result in other parts damage.

BROKEN TORSION SPRINGS
BROKEN EXTENSION SPRINGS
Standard extension springs are used in the type of door lift that is perpendicular to the door. An attached bracket holds the horizontal track to the ceiling. The door will not operate properly if either are broken.
As these springs were out over time, it is best to replace the set in the event of breakage.
