Why is the garage door cable so important?

The garage door safety cable acts to support the springs against the extreme weight of the door. The cable will help keep it aligned but is also an important buffer that will keep a broken spring from becoming an absolute catastrophe. For safety, security and optimum operation, you should keep a close eye on the cable’s condition.

Why is it that my garage door opener hums but doesn't move?

The garage door opener is comprised of electronic and mechanical components. One of the main parts of the motor that help translate electrical energy into mechanical energy is the drive gear.
