One of the problems that we are dealing with, nearly every day while servicing garage doors in Los Angeles County is a snapped garage door cable.
The impact of a snapped garage door cable over the door is a door that can’t be opened, closed, used or even unbalanced, the symptoms are almost identical to the symptoms of a broken garage door spring. The metal wires, which are part of the garage door mechanism, is what connect the spring system and the overhead door, and since without the cables the tension of the spring get lost, and since the garage door wires carry the weight of the garage door; if the cable break, the door shouldn’t be operated until a new cable will be supplied and installed. When the metal cable snapped, it result with garage door that should not be used, since the door is out of balance. Just as if the garage spring breaks, when the wire snap, the door is not being supported on one side and in many cases the door is not safe for use anymore.
Please pay attention: Sometime the door’s wire snap, but the door still open up, even if it is not as smooth as it used to. One might mistakenly assume that he can go on and use the door like that, but that will be a dangerous mistake. As we just explained, the entire weight of the door will be on the cable which did not snap, and it can easily break as well, resulting a dangerous situation of a heavy overhead door which connected to nothing to hold it from crushing into the floor. And one more thing: Using an automated garage door with a defective mechanism can result with a burned garage opener. If you know motor driven overhead doors, you know that what lift the door is actually the spring system and not the motor.
The best thing for you to do will be to get in touch with a local garage door company in Los Angeles, to come and fix the garage door for you by replacing the snapped cable.
