Garage door cables have an important job. Cable drums on either side of your door maintain even tension on door cables, ensuring proper operation of your garage door. If one cable breaks, you will know right away. Broken garage door cables are a safety hazard and replacing them is even more so. If you suspect your garage door cables are broken, stop using your garage door and call Blue Jay Garage Doors for professional garage door repairs.

Signs of a Broken Garage Door Cable

Both torsion cables and extension spring cables are made from heavy-duty galvanized wire. Most homeowners will get years of use from their springs. Other times, sudden or gradual effects can cause springs to break, resulting in damage and potentially serious injury.

Look for these signs of broken cables:

The Door Stopped Working

A broken garage door cable drum or cable can trigger safety features, preventing the door from moving until the repairs are performed.

The Door is Uneven

Frayed or damaged cables can become loose, leading to uneven garage door operation. If you notice your door slanting to one side, it’s likely due to loose garage door cables.

The Door Moves Too Fast

Cables keep garage door operation smooth and constant. If your door is closing faster than expected, it might be due to broken cables. Years of exposure to the elements and severe weather can lead to cable corrosion. Cables are also subject to wear from other garage door components. Broken or worn pulleys, cable drums and springs can cause damage to your garage door cables.

If your door is acting funny, call for a diagnosis. You might need garage door cable replacement. Give us a call at 931-346-7235 or schedule an appoint online at

Types of Garage Door Cables

There are two primary types of garage door cables:

Torsion Cables

Torsion cables run from the door up through cable drums. Torsion springs are mounted along the center, above the garage door.

Extension Spring Cables

Extension spring cables attach to the extension springs— long springs running along either side of your garage door track. They attach to a pulley at the end of the spring.
