Spring Replacement is a simple job for professionals
Before you start changing your garage door springs you need to know how your garage works. This way it can be safer for you to change it by yourself in case you decide to do it yourself and not hire a professional since they tend to be very expensive.
When you have a single spring system you should always change double spring system during Spring Replacement San Clemente. To check if your spring is working correctly you should lift the door about 3 feet from the ground, if it drops by itself and is too easy to lift up the spring is not working correctly. Normally single springs need to be changed more often, double springs last longer and work better.
Unwinding the springs, you need the winding bars and the 7/16” wrench. Stand with the ladder facing against the spring so prevent an accident. With your wrench loosen the 7/16” bolts that are on a side of the spring and slowly start unwinding the spring. The unwinding of the spring should be repeated about 30 times or when it is loosed up to about ¾ turns. You will know the spring is loose because cables on the side of the door will be completely loose. Never take apart the springs if there is tension on the cables at the time of Spring Replacement San Clemente.
Safety always comes first so you need to get a ladder and make sure some other person is working with you in case you fall off the ladder. You also need to unplug the motor to make sure no one comes home and accidentally activates it, this is to prevent an accident.
