All garage doors in Canada and USA have the spring coil system in order to function.
The full weight of the door is lifted by the springs, everything else is just parts to keep the door in place or on tracks, but the spring system is what lifts the full weight of the door.
Some single garage door repairs require one spring only, the bigger ones or double sizes require 2 springs. The spring system works in an amazing way, we apply tension to the springs depending on the weight of the door, when the door is closed, the spring is on full tension, and when the door is open, the springs are loose. Every spring has a lifespan depending on the thickness of the coil and the diameter and length of the spring. Some have 20000 cycles some have 35000 cycles and some commercial ones have over 100000 cycles, every cycle is open and close. These springs eventually lose tension by time and eventually break.
When the spring is broken, the full weight of the door is help by the opener, and most residential openers often break if attempted to lift the door without the springs in place, the garage door opener only guides the door up and down, it is not supposed to lift the full weight.
