There are two commonly used garage door spring systems.

 

Torsion:

 

Which is mounted to the wall above the door.

 

Extension:

 

Two spring (one on each side) runs perpendicular to the door, along the tracks.

 

Clopay also offers a special "ez-set" version of both type of spring to facilitate adjustment.

 

Has this problem always existed or is it something new?  If it is new, then it's possible a spring has broken.  Springs also wear out and may need to be replaced.

 

What kind of spring system do you have?
