Common Reasons Why A Garage Door Crashes

There are a variety of reasons why a garage door can crash. Sometimes the cause is as obvious as someone backing into the door or closing the door on an object.  Other times it is not so apparent.  Below are some reasons why your door can fail:

Torsion or Extension Springs

If your spring is failing to keep proper tension on your cables (particularly when your door is open), it may be time for replacement. Springs can fatigue to the point they are not conducive for continued safe operation of the door. This can occur even without them breaking. Other times, it may not be as obvious. If your springs have not been adjusted for some time, it is possible that all they need is a bit of fine tuning to restore proper balance and tension to your counterbalance system.

Improperly Adjusted Motor

Your garage door opener has a few different settings on them, and none is arguably more important than its force settings. The force settings on a garage door motor dictates how much force (or pressure) your opener will use to both open and close your garage door. If this setting is improperly set, it will limit your systems ability to realize that it is closing on an obstruction. If this occurs, it may continue to close the door regardless of what it has hit and cause the door to come off the track. This is not to mention potentially causing significant damage to the door and whatever your door has come in contact with!

Photo Eyes

As many refer to them, your photo eyes, or safety sensors, are there to prevent the door from closing on something during operation. If they are not correctly installed or not properly working, they can allow the door to close on an object/obstruction, causing the door to dislodge and crash.


The cables on either side of the garage door are responsible for carrying the entirety of the weight of your door. These cables can fray or rust with age, causing them to become brittle and snap. When this occurs, your garage door will only be tied into your counterbalance system on one side, causing the door to crash and turn diagonal in your garage's opening.

A crashed garage door should be immediately looked at by repair professionals. If handled improperly, you can get hurt while opening or closing it. Therefore, we urge you to call for a qualified professional immediately and have it inspected and repaired.
