How do I tell if the garage door spring is balanced properly?

Disconnect the operator using the red release cord. Pull the door open half way by hand and let go. The door should pretty well stay in the same position. However, some slight drifting may occur, so adjust the garage door spring tension if necessary.

If the door wants to drop or if it opens on its own, it is a sign the spring tension needs to be adjusted.  Garage door springs should always be adjusted by trained and experience garage door repair professionals. Call John's Garage Doors and we'll make it right for you.
