We were just standing in the kitchen talking and heard a loud noise in the garage. We have a door that leads from the kitchen to garage. I knew as soon as I heard the noise it was something breaking and the spring coming unwound. It's a fairly modern door. I installed in myself about 10 years ago. The opener is a Genie brand screw type. Not chain driven. The spring is like a long tube that is mounted above the garage door horizontally. I remember when I installed it I had to take a 4 foot bar and wind it up. There is a cable that broke that is loose hanging from the top of the door right now. So I assume there was a failure in the cable and it broke and the spring unwound. I assume that's what the noise was. Has anyone else ran across this problem? Do I just need to buy another cable and wind up the spring again? Thanks for any help.
