Common garage door malfunction, and why do they happen.

There is no doubt that at some point you will have to repair your garage door, at this point, you will have three options 

  1. Call a garage door company 
  2. DIY it
  3. Leave it broken

either option you decide to go with, we have listed the most common garage door malfunctions and what involves getting these issues eradicated.

What tools, time and cost would require to complete the repair 

Broken garage door spring – This is the most common garage door malfunction. 

How to diagnose a broken spring – When torsion springs break or snap, they produce a loud bang sound. 

When trying to use the electric motor, the garage will not open entirely and, in most cases, will lift several inches of the floor.

 Try disengaging the garage door from the opener via the emergency release cord, if the garage door is heavy and it is almost impossible to lift manually.

Why did it break – spring break due to metal fatigue, rust and normal wear and tear 

Tools and parts checklist – 

  • Impact driver.
  • 7\16 and 6/9 sockets. 
  • Winding bars or a spring winding device.
  • A pair of vice-grip pliers.
  • Gloves.
  • Safety goggles.
  • Metal-bearing or nylon bushing. 
  • Garage door lubricant.
  • Spring gauge. 
  • Levelling device
  • Spring(s) matching to the old one
  • Ladder

Cost – when it comes to cost, a standard size spring would range anywhere from 145-225.

Time to complete – 30-60 mins

DIY risk level – 10/10 out of all the repair this is the one we do not recommend a loaded spring can cause real harm and severe injury or even death

The verdict – We recommend calling a professional garage door company for this task. The reasoning behind it is due to the many points to make mistakes and the high-risk involved when dealing with big springs. 

Broken Cables – A common malfunction that occurs when the torsion cable either breaks or snaps 

How to diagnose a broken garage door cable – The best way to identify a broken, snapped or of the drum cable would be a visual inspection.

Check both cables for proper tension on the two sides by the sidetrack, also when the door is entirely closed, inspect the cable drum and make sure the cables are correctly wrapped on the drum. 

Why did it break – Torsion cables can break or snap due to various reasons the main ones are:

  1. An object that was caught in the way of the door while it was cycling with an electric motor.
  2. Wrong size springs.
  3. Unbalanced garage door. 
  4. Worn out cable drum
  5. Accidental damage to the garage door
  6. Worn out torsion tube 
  7. normal wear and tear or rust 

Tools and parts checklist – 

  • Winding bars or a spring winding device.
  • 7\16 socket and wrench 
  • A pair of vice-grip pliers
  • Gloves.
  • Safety goggles.
  • Garage door lubricant.
  • Ladder
  • torsion or extension cables in the same gauge

Cost – Garage door cables can cost anywhere from 125-150

Time to replace – 20-40 mins

DIY risk level – 10/10 almost identical to the spring replacement risk the only difference you are not required to disconnect the springs 

The verdict – We recommend calling a professional garage door company for this task. As this task is almost identical to a spring replacement and involves parts that are under an immense amount of tension that can cause a severe injury 

Hinge and roller replacement – Rollers and hinges wear out with time and need to be inspected periodically 

How to diagnose broken or worn-out rollers and hinges – the only and the best way to inspect damaged or worn out rollers and hinges is by physically and visually inspect the rollers and hinges one by one for worn-out ball bearings and broken or cracked hinges. 

Why did it break – Hinges and rollers break and wear out either due to a hit to the garage door, sagging sections or normal wear and tear.

Tools and parts checklist –  

  • 7/16 socket and wrench 
  • impact driver or drill
  • identical hinges to the originals
  • same size rollers as the originals
  • replacements nuts 
  • replacement self-tapping screw
  • replacement trough bolts (wooden doors 
  • hammer 
  • pliers 
  • vice grips pliers 
  • ladder 

Cost – the cost for a hinge for a residential door would be anywhere from 20-40

the cost for a roller would be anywhere from 15-40

Time to replace – 10-15 mins 

DIY risk level – 3/10 the risk level is minimal and can be performed by the average DIYer just keep in mind not to remove to bottom fixtures as the torsion cables are connected to them, they are under high tension 

The Verdict –  Even though we recommend using a professional garage door company for any work related to a garage door, a hinge or a roller replacement can be done with mild risk to injury and without any special tools needed. a well-sutied task for a DIY enthusiast with basic knowledge with power tools and readily available tools

My old garage door opener failed on Saturday afternoon. I called Titan Garage Doors in Coquitlam and was amazed to... learn that they could have someone available to look at it that day. Technician Adam was at my door shortly after 6:00 pm. An hour and a half later, I had a brand new opener installed, the spring rebalanced, and door joints lubricated. I was very pleased with the prompt and professional service. Titan will be my “go to” for all of my garage door needs going forward.read more

One of our two, relatively new, garage door springs broke after about 5 years. So googled and found Titan Garage Doors... to fix it. They turned up same day within 1.5 hours to fix it. Alex, the technician was a super nice and super skillful guy, and it was obvious he had done the job countless times. He had to work in cramped conditions because the cars were struck in the garage, but he did a great job. The final price for two new springs was C$420 including tax. I'm only taking a star off because the person on the phone initially -- not Alex -- said a different price range; $150 to $250 ish. They must replace pairs of springs all day long... so why not just quote the real prices charged over the phone? Summary: Loved Alex. Hated the phone person in retrospect.read more

My garage door spring snapped. Called these guys first thing in the morning. When the mechanic arrived 30 minutes... later, I was anticipating getting ridiculous quote like those locksmith scam (paid $260 for 1 minute of job because locksmith knows you are desperate about getting locked out). Later I realized garage door repair isn’t the same as locksmith. I was given a reasonable quote for one hour of labour and it includes the price of the spring. After the mechanic got the door fixed, I was able to pay by credit card and was given a receipt. And on top of that, there is warranty for their repair work. I hope I don’t have to called them any time soon, but if I have to I will. Highly recommended.read more

Very prompt service. The technician, Eli, was pleasant, courteous and professional. He assessed the problem that we... were having with our garage door opener, opened the unit up and showed me the parts that had failed. Upon my approval of his price quotation, he went to work replacing the defective/failed part which I was pleased to find out that he carried in his vehicle. Very happy with the experience and highly recommend this technician and the company.read more

I would NOT recommend this company! We called Titan to come and do a service, maintenance and any necessary repair on... our garage door. The technician showed up, spent maybe 10 minutes at our place, balanced the door, took his $120 bucks and basically that was it. We asked if there was anything else that needed to be done and we were told no. Our installer arrived the next day and we were told that some of the rollers and hinges would need to be replaced prior to the installation of our new garage door opener. We were not told by Titan that any of this needed to be done. Titan returned the next day to give us a quote for the rollers and hinges... They quoted $40 dollars for each hinge, and $15 per roller. We have 12 hinges/rollers! At this rate, we'd be better off buying a whole new door! We had another company come in and replace only what was broken for a fraction of the cost and they did an amazing job I would not recommend this company, unless you have money to burn and want to overspend!read more

I am very happy with the service. Adam from Titan Doors did a great job fixing my garage door. He found the problem... right away (broken spring) and replaced the part quickly which he already had with him. Arrived within half an hour of me calling at 9 in the morning and fixed it all before 11am! Garage opens smoother and quieter than it did before! Thank you!!read more
