Garage door adjustment

we have a metal overhead garage door and it does not stay up when opened (no automatic opener). I am very handy and have adjusted torsion type springs but this door has extension springs and I need to know the correct procedure for adjusting. I am very experienced and prefer not to call a door contractor.

Check out this site about replacing door springs. It also covers how to adjust them.

I can assume that when the door was installed the door stayed up. If nothing was added to the door that would increase the weight, I would say that the present springs are getting old and weak. In such a case they need to be replaced. Springs last an average of 10 - 15 years before breaking.

And when they break STAND BACK
