Do you see any loose wire hanging on any side of the garage door? Or is your garage door moving fast? If you face any of such issues, chances are your garage door cable has got damaged.
Like other moving parts of the garage door system, the garage door cable is also an important part of the functioning of the door. If even one cable breaks, it will increase the tension on the other cable and other parts of the garage door.
However, identifying a broken garage door cable can be difficult. Homeowners are well acquainted with other garage door parts like garage door springs, rollers, openers, and panels. While they may not be able to identify a damaged garage door cable because they keep on serving fault in other parts.
Without garage door cables, you won’t be able to open or close your garage door. These are the cables that transfer the energy from the springs to the garage door.
