Hey Garage Door Fans. I’m Chris Wilke with C&W Canada Garage Doors and today we’re gonna be talking about the balance of your door. In order to test the balance of your door, the first thing you want to do is pull down the emergency release here on the opener. Then, you want to locate the handle (usually found on the side of the garage door) and lift the door up to about this level. It should stay put. If for some reason it goes too fast or if it falls to the ground or doesn’t want to open at all, there’s something wrong with your spring and you need to contact a professional as tampering with the spring can result in injury or death. So remember, when your door’s in trouble, you call C&W!
