Broken Garage Door Cables?

Nobody really thinks about or notices their garage door cables – until they break. Then it’s important to replace them quickly because they are essential to your safety and crucial to the smooth, easy and effective operation of your garage door system. Cables keep the door from falling down, and worn or broken cables are a serious safety hazard. The Precision team leads the garage door industry and can quickly and easily get your door operating smoothly again. Because we use American-made cables that are the highest rated in the industry, you’ll have many years of trouble-free garage door operation to come. And we back that up with the industry’s leading warranty, The Precision Promise.

What You Should Know About Garage Door Cable Repair and Replacement

Danger: Do Not Attempt to Repair Broken Cables Yourself

A broken cable is an urgent problem that could quickly lead to a full-system failure or lead to injuries and damage. Don’t wait to replace your broken garage door cable. If you notice poor performance or see a broken, worn, rusted or frayed cable, contact Precision immediately. If a cable is broken, your garage door cannot operate. And definitely don’t attempt to do repairs yourself; over 20,000 injuries occur each year from people who aren’t qualified attempting to repair their own garage door. Stay safe and rely on a professional.

What Do Cables Do?

A garage door cable is similar to what’s often called “aircraft cable.” It’s made of many strands of stainless-steel wire that are twisted together but remain pliable. Cables carry all of the weight and tension to raise and lower the door.

Is it Time to Replace the Cables?

Think of how many times your garage door opens and closes each week. Over time, all that up and down motion will wear on the cables, and they’re an integral part of your garage door system. How do you know when it’s time to replace them? Our experts have put together some telltale signs to watch for:

See visible issues? If you do a visual inspection of the cables and see visible signs of rust, corrosion, fraying or excess wear, that’s a sign that you should get your cable replaced before it fails. Another telltale sign is the spiral effect, where a strand looks like it has “bumped out” from the group.

Notice slack when the door is open? When the door is in the open position, the cables should stay tight between the drum and the bottom of the door. If there is any slack on one or both cables, it could mean that the cables have stretched or that the spring is wearing.

Garage door won’t open? If you press the button on your garage door opener and it doesn’t open, it could be a number of things, but it may be a sign that your cable has broken.

Door making loud noises? A certain level of noise is to be expected when you open and close your garage door. But a sudden increase in noise could be an indication that a cable is broken or not working properly. Remember, if you see a broken cable, contact professionals to replace it. If it’s not done properly, it could be dangerous.

Why Choose Precision to Service Your Garage Door Cables?

There are many reasons to have Precision handle the replacement of your cable:

  • We use only stainless-steel cable, which lasts longer than galvanized wire and does not transfer rust.
  • Our highly trained technicians are available 24/7 so we can act quickly and keep a potentially dangerous cable situation from causing any harm. Our quick response ensures your peace of mind and your family’s safety.
  • We use only the highest quality parts to ensure your door will continue performing well for years to come. See our Parts Comparison Guide to learn more about how Precision premium parts will outperform the competitors’ parts.
  • Because garage doors come in all weights and sizes, we install the right cable for your door to ensure proper balance and operation. 
  • To maintain a safe environment for our customers, we thoroughly inspect each part of your garage door to make sure all the hardware and moving parts are in good working condition and meet safety standards. Since the hardware was probably installed at the same time as the cables, it’s possible there are worn mechanical parts on your door that are in an unsafe state. We think of cable failure as a symptom of a possibly larger problem with your door.
