Instructions.Things You’ll Need:
2 Vice Grips
3 Inch Wrench
New Cable
Step Ladder
Gloves
Safety Goggles
1First, if your cable is off on one side you must be careful because all the spring torque has transferred to the opposite side of the torsion spring assembly. This commonly results with the door lifting from the ground and wanting to be crooked within the tracks.
2Step on the high (lifted) side of the door with foot and push down, applying pressure to move door down to a level position. Secure door down with two vice grips to level the door.
3Remove damaged cable and it will need to be replaced if frayed or kinked. You should never reinstall a cable because they will continue to spool off. Replacement parts are available at your local door dealer, such as Overdoors of Illinois.
4Attach new cable to bottom bracket, run the cable behind the hinge, up to the cable drum. Loosen the set screws on the cable drum and run the cable into the drum to match the opposite side, tighten the set screws.
5Raise and lower the door to make sure the door is tracking evenly and resting flat to the floor.
6Minor adjustments to one or both cables may be necessary to ensure proper operation.
