Garage Door Cable Repair & Replacement

Replace Your Broken Garage Door Cables Immediately

Are you looking to repair or replace your garage door cables? All American Door will provide same-day cable replacement or repair service in Minneapolis and the surrounding areas. 

Cables are one of the most important components of your garage door unit. They help the device to operate properly. For example, if the extension springs of the garage door break, the increased energy will cause the door to move quickly and with great force. The increased energy can cause serious injuries. The force is so strong that it could damage your vehicle. 

Cables provide protection when the springs of your door break. For your safety it’s best that you recognize signs to replace your door’s cables.

What causes the garage door cable to come off?

Garage door cables can come off for a variety of reasons. One common reason is that the cable simply snaps due to wear and tear. Another reason is that the cable may become detached from the pulley system if it's not properly lubricated. The best way to prevent your garage door cables from coming off is to get regular garage door maintenance. Regular maintenance ensures your cables are properly lubricated and working without excess strain.

How do you release tension on a garage door cable?

There are two different types of garage door cables- torsion cables and extension cables. To release tension on a torsion cable, you'll need to adjust the springs on either side of the door. To release tension on an extension cable, you'll need to remove the pulley from the wall and lower the door manually. Both types of cables are under a lot of tension and can be dangerous to work with if you don't know what you're doing. If you're not sure which type of cable your garage door has, it's best to call a professional to take a look.

How long do garage door cables last?

Garage door cables are designed to last for many years with proper maintenance. On average, garage door cables last for about 10,000 cycles. However, this number will vary depending on the type of garage door you have and the weight of your door.

Common Garage Door Cable Problems

One common problem is for your door to stick when it is opened or closed. This could stem from a cable problem. To determine if there’s a cable problem or not, you’ll need to have your garage door inspected by a professional. This inspection is important because other issues can also cause the door to stick. 

A remote control garage door opener can also cause problems with your garage door. It’s important to check the batteries and sensors on your garage door opener. If the door is not operated with a remote, you can check the wheel track for any visible obstructions. Weather, like humidity or changes in temperature, can also cause sticking. If your garage door is sticking and it’s not one of these problems, there’s a good chance the problem is with your cables. 

Another common problem is that your door lowers too quickly. When this happens this could cause injury to someone opening or closing the door. This problem should be repaired as soon as possible as it could be caused by a broken cable or weak springs.
