When Should Garage Door Drums Be Replaced? Do Garage Door Drums Go Bad?

replace garage door drums when edges are serrated.

Serrated edges are like a sharp steak knife that can cause your garage door cables to fray as the cable spools onto the damaged garage door drums. Garage door drums can go bad for several reasons. cheap parts, poor installation, age and pressure over time. Once a torsion drum is bad there is no repair or maintenance and the garage door drum will continue to wear out at a faster rate with each passing year. This picture is a picture of a garage door drum that has flattened grooves and serrated edges.

flattened grooves on the garage door drum

I am always amazed when i hear people say. “I called another garage door company and they told me that drums don’t ever go bad.” Seriously if you hear that. Run!!! Kick them out of the garage they do not know what they are talking about.

Garage door drums are made out of a soft metal from a mold.

  • On light garage doors they last longer but over time the garage door torsion cable grooves will flatten out and the drums should be replaced to avoid cable failure.
  • On heavy garage doors the process is faster due to the weight that is placed on the garage door torsion drum.
  • Over time the garage door cables will rope and since there is no way to contain the cable the grooves will flatten. Then the cables will begin to cut themselves as they lay in the drum. Cables will become frayed this increases the risk of complete garage door failure. Garage door cables and drums should be replaced together.

Many companies will replace the drum and not the cable because the cable is in the beginning stages of failure “roping.” and it is easy to change the drums with a spring job but changing the garage door cable takes more effort. This is wrong. The old cable will quickly deteriorate and continue wearing the garage door drum. Change your cable.

burrs on the garage door drum surface

Burrs are small cuts in the garage door torsion drum that are usually caused by the garage door cable. We recommend replacement in order to avoid potential fraying.

broken drums

Broken drums can destroy your cables. Probably already did. Although very rare a broken drum can fail to support the weight of the garage door and cause the garage door to lose tracking.

The top three reasons a garage door will lose cable tension and fall off track. Rollers, end bearing plates, and springs.


If a cable comes off the drum, do not try to fix it yourself. We can fix this problem for very little more than a door service $98.00. Therefore, let a garage door pro do the work. Garage door off track situations above stage 5 are almost always caused by the home owner trying to fix the garage door problem themselves.

How do customers prevent a garage door off track condition? Garage door service and regular maintenance can prevent garage doors from coming “off track. Garage doors service and garage door inspection should be done twice a year according to most manufactures. A professional garage door service should be done any time

  • The door does not balance properly.
  • A noisy garage door is a good reason to get your garage door serviced. Noisy garage doors can be a good indication that a problem exist but is never in and of itself a cause of failure due to its subjective nature.
  • If your garage door opener is reversing then its probably because the sensitivity is being engaged. This is a warning that a problem exist. Never turn up your sensitivity to over come a problem.
  • Make sure your sensitivity is reversing properly. This is in your user manual of most garage door openers and it recommends checking it on a regular basis. If you don’t know how call us for a door and opener service and we will show you.
  • Excessive clutter in a garage can cause your garage door to come off track. Anything that binds the garage door can cause it to come off track.
Failing garage door openers put your garage door at risk for failure.

Garage door openers are built with sensitivity settings that are designed to alert you of potential problems. Older openers made it really easy to adjust the garage door opener “force” settings.

The opener force settings should never be turned up in order to overcome a problem with the garage door that should be resolved with a garage door service or repair, but home owners and un- professional garage door technicians alike used the force settings as a quick fix to cover up a bigger problems.

Ultimately putting the entire garage door system at risk for severe failure such as a garage door off track situation.

New garage door openers have addressed this problem. While still easy to adjust the settings in the opener when needed it is harder than just a thoughtless turn of a screw driver.

Garage door and garage door opener manufacturing companies recommend professional garage door and opener service at least once a year.

If you have an opener that is older than 10 years a new opener could be a good idea to remove the risk associated with older openers that have not been serviced regularly or properly.
