Broken Garage Door Cable Help

Determine if it’s a broken garage cable.

Garage door cables run along each side of the garage door, and typically winds up on a pulley system which is located on top left and top right side of the garage door. It is attached to the main bar (see images for reference.) The signs of a broken cable can be mistaken for other issues, as most of them result in a none operating garage door, but we do have some tips and tricks that would help you determine if it’s a broken garage cable.

You can carefully approach each side at a time and visually see if the cable has been unwound or appears to have snapped. This will require professional help, as door balancing and spring repair may be required. Cables should be neatly wrapped around the pulley, if you hear a loud snap during an open/close operation that could indicate a broken garage cable.


Key notes:

1. Visually inspect cable pulley.

2. Listen for loud snap sound.

I had an issue with the garage door while I was out of town. My wife called me that the garage door fell off its track. When I got home the garage was a complete mess, the springs snapped the cables came lose and 2 of the rollers came off. I called Local and they had one of their experienced technicians out within 2 hours, the service call was only 20 as with other companies they were charging me 65. Well long story short my garage door was fixed they were very professional. I had no issues with them, and I am extremely grateful!
