In Anoka, MN we had a customer that had a broken spring but had continued to run her Garage Door Opener, by doing this with a broken spring it can either break or grind down the Gear and Sprocket Assembly inside the Garage Door Opener itself.

Often times you have to take the entire Garage Door Opener apart including the motor just to get at the gear. Although it is a slow process the experts at Garage Door Repair Company can accomplish this in a timely fashion and within the same day if needed.

There are a few different ways to identify whether or not this is a repair you may need on your Garage Door. If the opener motor makes a noise as though it should be working but the arm attached the door does not move at all then the Gear may be stripped. If the door goes down but then when you try to run the door up it jerks back and forth then the Sprocket may be broken. There are a few other ways to identify this but it is best to have a trained expert check it out to make sure it is the proper fix.
