When a garage door spring reaches 10k cycles, it begins to wear down and eventually breaks, leaving your car stuck in the garage.

Door Out Of Track?
It is not uncommon for a garage door to fall out of track. It happens because either a garage door roller has fallen out or the garage door cables have come loose on one of the sides. It is recommended to have a trained professional put the garage door back in properly to prevent any further damage. Garage doors are typically heavy with lots of moving parts.
To perform this garage door repair safely, you should be trained in placing a garage door back in the track for operation. In our experience, homeowners who attempt this garage door repair on their own typically make it worse. We, in most cases, can save the garage door if you call us immediately. When we do this job, we reset the garage door cables, place your roller back in the track, and run the opener to make sure everything is functioning properly before we leave.
A garage door opener is the motor that works to move your door up and down. It can be located on the ceiling of your garage or to the left or right of your door. There are five primary types of openers: chain drive, belt drive, direct drive, jackshaft, and screw drive. Each of these function differently in terms of noise level and longevity.
To check the functionality of your garage door opener, see if the light is lit up on the side. If not, the issue might be your electricity. Try resetting your system and checking that everything is plugged in. If you test the electricity and the garage door won’t open, try opening it manually. If you can open the door manually, then your garage door spring is most likely fine; you need garage door opener repair. For garage door opener repair and replacement, please call 714-528-5670 for a free estimate!
Garage doors cables are located on the right and left sides of your door. They work with the counterbalance system of your garage door spring to open and close the door. Because there are two garage door cables, they work independently. This means one could break while the other still functions normally.
A good way to know if you have a broken garage door cable is if your garage door rises at an angle. Also, a broken garage door cable will often cause the garage door to make a loud grinding or squeaking noise. If you experience any of these signs when opening your garage door, please stop the cycle and call us to schedule a garage door repair.
Garage door repair cost varies depending on what exactly broke and what is required to fix it. To find out how much a garage door repair costs, you first need to find out what needs to be repaired. (If you already know the issue and it is not listed, please call 714-528-5670 to get info on pricing) Here is a list of things that could be wrong with your garage door:
1. Garage door opener won’t work:
In most cases, garage door opener repair is an easy fix. Chain or drive screw operated garage door openers that won't work may just need some lubrication to reduce friction. But if that isn’t the case, there might be an electrical issue, making it unsafe to use. This is when we'd recommend you call us to have our experts take a look at what might be the issue. We offer free inspections/estimates!
2. Grinding noises:
Shabby parts, loose hardware, or bent sections can cause the grinding noises coming from your garage door. Generally, if you hear a lot of grinding noises, it's because you need lubrication. In this case, simply apply grease (not spray) directly on the squeaky part.
3. The garage door starts to close then reverses:
If your garage door starts to close then reverses, there could be an issue with the alignment of your garage door’s photo-eye. These are the small plastic devices that serve as a safety feature and are located on both sides of the garage door. To confirm the photo-eyes are working correctly, look for a flashing green light, and rub off any dirt or debris that could cover the sensor.
