Signs It's Time to Inspect Your Torsion Springs

As torsion springs age and wear out, you may notice your garage door is becoming more difficult to open and close. Lifting the door takes more effort than usual or it may start creeping back down once pulled up a few inches. Older springs lose their ability to properly support the weight of the door over time. Periodic inspections can catch worn springs before they snap.

Torsion Springs

You Hear Unusual Noises

Loose or broken cables, pulleys or rollers will produce clunking or banging sounds as the door moves. A hissing or crackling noise from the torsion springs themselves is also a warning sign. Integrity Garage Door Repair in Franklin recommends inspecting all components if you notice new or abnormal noises during operation. Damaged parts may need replacement for safe use.

There are Visible Signs of Wear

Look for broken or loosened cables, rusted springs or pulleys, cracked roller guides or brackets that are no longer stable. Any sign of visible deterioration means the system has worn past the inspection stage and likely needs repair or replacement of failing components. Integrity can assess the system and advise on necessary repairs.

The Door Won't Fully Open or Close

Problems with springs, rollers or hinges may prevent your door from raising or lowering completely. This can lead to being stuck partially open or closed. Incomplete travel could also be due to misaligned or damaged sensors for automatic openers. A technician from Integrity will thoroughly inspect all parts to find the cause.

It's Been 10+ Years Since the Last Service

Even if your door still functions normally, the torsion springs were only rated for 10,000 to 15,000 cycles of open/close travel before signs of wear appear. It’s wise to get systems professionally checked every 5-7 years, especially in cold weather climates where corrosion can accelerate damage. Integrity offers reliable garage door inspections to catch any issues early.

Your garage door is too important to gamble with worn or failing springs.


Torsion springs are designed to last 10,000 to 15,000 cycles of open/close travel before replacement is recommended. Cycle life depends on factors like material quality, installation, weather conditions and maintenance history. Integrity technicians can help estimate your springs’ remaining useful life during an inspection.

No – our certified garage door pros are fully trained to inspect springs without putting undue stress on them. Visual checks and gently manipulating components will not cause harm, even to springs that still function normally. However, we do recommend replacing any springs that show signs of deterioration for safety reasons. An inspection is a non-invasive procedure to evaluate the system thoroughly.
