General service and maintenance to your door will help keep it in great shape and pinpoint any parts that are wearing and may give you problems in the future.
We recommend you get your door and opener serviced every two to three years or at the first sign of any problems.

Frayed, loose or kinked cables on a sectional/panel lift garage door.
If the cables are starting to fray or are kinked, they likely need replacing as soon as possible.
If left unattended cables can break whilst the door is operating and this can be extremely danged.
The door could fall from open position with all it s weight.
Cables – Sectional garage doors / panel lift garage doors.
Cables on sectional/ panel lift garage doors are part of the lifting mechanism of your door. They wind up into the cable drum to help lift your door. If your door has rear mounted springs, there will also be pulleys.
Every time you open and close your door the cables are winding and unwinding under tension and the weight of the door. They are a vital part of your door and if they are frayed, kinked or loose they may cause issues with your door operation.
Cables have come off your sectional/panel lift door.
When your garage door is not operating check that the cables haven’t come off or have broken. If the cables have come off it is generally because either the springs have lost tension, or you have operated the door on manual and have lifted it too high causing the cables to pop off.
Our trained technicians can sort out all these issues for you and make sure your door is operating safely.
You can avoid many problems by regularly servicing your door and opener and visually checking every few months that all looks ok.
Springs – Sectional Garage Doors / Panel Lift Garage Doors
Springs play a crucial role in the smooth and balanced operation of your garage doors, and a malfunctioning spring can lead to inconvenience and potential safety hazards. Our team of skilled technicians is well-versed in identifying and addressing spring-related issues, whether it’s a broken spring, worn-out components, or tension adjustments. With years of experience in the industry, we use only high-quality replacement parts and modern techniques to ensure long-lasting and reliable solutions for your garage door springs. Don’t let a faulty spring disrupt your daily routine; trust Eastern Garage Doors for professional spring repair services that will restore your garage doors to their optimal performance in no time.
These springs sit above the door or sometimes they are rear-mounted and will be at the back of the garage. You may not realise that your sectional panel lift door springs are broken, but you will have the following issues.
- The opener will not be able to open the door all the way and may close with a thud.
- When you put the door on manual it will be too heavy to lift.
When you find you have a broken spring for safety reasons it is best to stop using the door and opener immediately. If you continue to use the opener you will cause undue stress on it and require repairs to the opener also.
It is recommended that both springs are replaced at the same time on a Sectional door as the second spring will generally break within a short period after and your door and opener should have both springs working efficiently with the same tension.
If you can provide us with the following information it will help us to provide the right size springs for your door. Generally, we can help you on the same day but in some instances, custom springs will need to be manufactured.
- Height and width of the door. Ie. 4800 mm wide x 2200 mm high
- The brand of the door is known.
- We may ask you to send us a photo of the back of the door including the springs.
Give us a call and we can help you usually on the same day with new sectional garage door springs for your panel lift door.
