The torsion spring(s) that powers your garage door’s counterbalance system is a crucial part of its operation. Torsion springs take the burden of the door’s weight off the motor. If a spring breaks or isn’t coiled properly, it’ll put undue strain on your motor leading to burnout or other issues. Affordable Garage Doors is standing by to make sure you get the garage door spring repair you need to keep your overhead door functioning efficiently.
We travel throughout Scottsdale, AZ, tending to garage door springs of all sizes and types. Our trucks are fully stocked with different springs, ensuring your door gets the proper coil to support the door’s size and heft, and to unburden your garage door motor.
Signs of a Failing Torsion Spring
The most common sign of a broken torsion spring is a garage door that just won’t open. The weight of the door overpowers the motor, which means you’ll hear the motor trying to raise the door, but it won’t move. If this is happening to you, go into your garage and look up over the closed door, where the spring is located. If it’s broken or loosely coiled, the problem will be easy to see.
Sometimes, torsion springs will begin to fail due to wear or improper installation, and won’t necessarily break. Here are a few signs of a faulty spring that’s on its way out:
- Springs loosen over time, causing the door to raise slowly
- Squeaking or squealing when the door is in motion
- If your door has two springs, one side of the door may sag while raising

We service doors throughout Scottsdale, AZ, bringing springs in all sizes and thicknesses with us to every jobsite.
