Common Garage Door Cable Repair Questions

What is causing my garage door to be on an angle? 

Garage doors that close or open unevenly may indicate that you have snapped garage door cables. Sometimes you get gaps below the door when it closes in position, the garage door is unbalanced and shaky, or the garage door goes off-track, indicating the same issue.

Can I use my garage door with broken cables? 

Using a garage door with a broken or loose cable is strongly discouraged. If a cable is broken, the door may come off the track and the counterbalance may be out of position. This places an enormous amount of pressure on the remaining cables, which can snap and cause the door to fall on anything or anyone below it. Therefore, it is important to avoid using a garage door with broken cables.

The Purpose of Garage Door Cables

Garage doors cables, together with the springs, are important for the smooth movement of your garage door. If one cable breaks, the other will suffer additional stress, which will cause it to break as well.

The cables are connected to the torsion spring shaft at both ends, and as the spring turns, the cables wrap around the drum. This process enables the garage door to move up and down, with the spring winding up when the door is lowered.

When one cable breaks, the door becomes uneven, causing strain on other components such as the rollers and tracks. It is therefore essential to replace the broken cable promptly to prevent more costly issues from arising.

Garage Door Cable Repair FAQ

Do these common garage door issues sound familiar? A service technician is always available to help.

You most probably have a broken garage door spring and need it to be replaced before attempting to operate the garage door again. It is very dangerous to try repairing it on your own if you have no previous experience doing it as the spring holds a lot of tension and is the key component responsible for lifting your heavy garage door. A garage door spring has a limited number of cycles and needs to be replaced once it reaches its capacity. Changes in weather conditions and high frequency of door opening and closing (wear and tear) are the main contributors to broken garage door springs.

If your garage door is only opening half way, it is likely that your garage door opener is not functioning properly. It is possible that your automatic garage door opener has reached its limits and it is important for an opener technician to diagnose the issue and assess whether the opener can be repaired or replaced completely.

If your garage door is hanging on an angle or on one side, it is most likely due to snapped or broken cables. The garage door cables are responsible for lifting and lowering the door, and if they become damaged, it can prevent your door from functioning properly.

If you are locked out of your garage, you can always give us a call to help you open it securely. It is important to install a lock on garage doors that have no side entrance if the only way into your garage is through the garage door. Consult with one of our expert technicians to understand your options regarding your garage security.

This issue is one of the most common ones we get when clients reach out for help. When your garage door is not closing or starting to close and then going back up, it is most often due to faulty sensors (also known as photo eyes or safety eyes). You may want to check that your garage door sensors are clean and properly aligned to point at one another. You want to make sure that you see two solid green lights to confirm this.

If your garage door opener is making an operating sound but the door is not moving, make sure that your door is not set to manual. To do this, look up at the hookup arm to see whether it is disconnected. If it is, reconnect it and it should start operating properly. If the issue persists, you may want to call a professional garage door technician to advise you whether it makes more sense to repair the opener or replace it. In some instances (such as gear or motor issues), it may make more sense financially to completely replace the opener.

If your garage door is making a lot of noise, it might be a sign that it is time for maintenance. Garage Door Beasts recommends that you lubricate your garage door with Jigaloo (can be purchased at Canadian Tire) to maintain the door and avoid friction while operating that can cause harm to the entire system. If the lubrication doesn’t work, reach out to us so that we can take a look and fix that issue for you.

The changing weather conditions in Canada can cause issues to our garage doors. You have a few options when it comes to dealing with a garage door that is frozen and stuck to the ground. The first is to heavily salt the ground area near the bottom of your garage door until it melts and is able to open again. The other option is to replace your garage door bottom seal with a thick rubber that is specifically designed to avoid freezing. These anti-freeze rubbers can only be installed on thick and sturdy garage doors, so depending on the type of your existing garage door, you may want to consider replacing it with a new one.

If your garage door keypad or remote controllers have stopped working, try to change the batteries first. If that does not solve the problem, you can try searching for tutorials on YouTube on how to properly program your garage door remotes and keypad. You can also give us a call and request one of our experts to do it for you.

Some think that replacing individual garage door panels are more cost-effective than replacing the entire garage door, although oftentimes it is not the case.
