Springs are usually mounted in pairs, and when dealing with a broken spring, we recommend changing both springs. Usually, springs installed on a garage door are the same age, when one brakes, it is safe to assume that the other one won’t last much longer. Another reason to replace them both at the same time, is that springs on both sides of the door should be of equal tension, this is needed to lift the door evenly, if not, it will wear and potentially damage the garage door motor.

Since they are responsible for the mechanics of lifting your door, and actually account for over 90% of the lift that is needed to raise a garage door, they handle a lot of weight and are under a lot of tension.
When garage door springs are working properly, your garage door will feel nearly weightless, but when one or both springs break, you will feel the full weight of your door, that could be over 200lb.
Garage door springs can be very dangerous!
Do not try to replace the springs yourself
Do not attempt to move the door manually, it could come crashing down with all it’s weight.
