Garage door springs act as a counterbalance when the door moves up and down. When these components break down, it can cause major issues with the entire system. If your garage door springs stop working, you may wonder if you can use the system at all. Here are some tips that can help answer that question.
Although some garage doors are equipped with openers that can move the door up and down, you should not use them if the springs are broken. If you do, it could damage the operator and panels. Here are some examples of what can happen in this situation.
It is not recommended that you open your garage when the springs are broken. But, if you need to, there are steps you can take to do so manually. Before you do this, keep a few things in mind. You should always have at least one other person to help you, most garage doors are quite heavy, and you will need some tools to assist you.
