Yep! What happens is a "T" shaped metal piece that is "screwed" into the spring and serves as an adjustment of tension tears or bends and falls out of the spring(s). Usually one at a time.

If you are clever you can rebend and strengthen this piece and adjust the tension to normal.

Access this by removing the panel below the door where the toe kick is.

The cause of the problem will be obvious and one side will probably still be intact so you can see how they are supposed to be.

Oven door not closing properly


If it is a drop down door with hinges on the bootom of the oven door, then it is likely to be weak door hinge springs, the usual solution is to replace both hinges.
If it is a swing open door, then the problem is related to a worn or broken door catch, or worn striker pin.

Garage door not opening properly.


Check the springs on your garage door. If one is broken, the opener will not have enough power to raise up and it will stop like that.Or the up and down limit settings have gone off or bad.

Hi there. I have a Chamberlain Whisper Drive


I just had that problem this morning and the cause was that the springs that help hold the weight of the garage door were broken. This caused the garage door opener to raise the garage door a fe inches and then drop again. We called in a professional and $200 later we had new springs and everything works fine now.

Check your door springs. One of them is most likely broken and is what caused your drive gear to strip in the beginning.

Door opens beyond position parellel to floor


Hi dougisommer

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your question is: The door springs seem fine but when we open the door and wheel out the lower dish rack, the door drops further and the rack rolls down to the floor. Reading other postings, it seems like a good name for this is a broken "door catcher." How can I fix this?

You may need a sevice tech for this. The 'door catchers' on the sides of the unit can only be accessed after removing. Not a job for the inexperienced.

Feel free contact me again!
