GARAGE DOOR OFF TRACK
There are practical reasons why a garage door springs would break though none of them seem to be O.K. First, wear and tear. Either the spring was made from poor metal or the quality of the spring was weak. A torsion spring operates on spring tension and when the spring cannot withstand the tension then the spring usually gives. This kind of break of a tension spring is normally a problem in large industrial garage door off track that need to withstand repeated high amounts of tension thousands of times a year. Secondly, as mentioned earlier if the amount of tension found in each garage door springs on the door is in an unbalanced state then this may be a cause of the spring breaking sooner than it would under normal conditions.
