What Are Common Garage Door Cable Problems?

  • Wound around the drum
  • Pulleys get worn out
  • Cables wear and tear
  • Break because of rust



In many cases, garage door cables will snap due to rust that occurs in the
bottom brackets of the door. The cables are held in the bottom bracket with
a pin that will get rusty with time and the grinding of both will get the cables
to snap.

If you live in a cold place, you will see the accumulation of water and snow
in the bottom sides of the door. It is highly recommended to clear them out
and make sure they will not get to the tracks and brackets. Other cases will
just be old doors and regular ware and tare of the door.

Replacing your garage door cables takes specialty tools and knowledge. The
replacement of cables includes high tension of the springs and cables.
Installing the cables by yourself is not recommended.

Cables cost can vary based on the size and weight of the door.
A specialist
can determine that once arriving to the site.
Although the concept of
replacing the cables is similar, the same job can get complicated in different
doors due to their condition.

Yes. Highly recommended. Both cables have the same life cycle, so you can
understand that the “good one” is about to snap soon anyway. You might as
well save time and money and replace them both. Aligning the door properly
should be done with a set of new cables.

Due to the heavy weight of garage doors, the cables are made of steel.

Yes. In most cases only one cables will snap, which means the door will fall
partially and will look crooked. If you are having a bad day and both cables
snap while the door is open – the door will fall. This is the reason why you
should always call a specialist once something happens to you garage door.
