If you have a garage door that has lost its cables, there could be multiple reasons why this could have happened. Among the list of possibilities is that one or both cables could be frayed, you’ve hit a large, overbearing obstruction and no, I don’t mean your mother in law; worn out rollers or worn out torsion system bearings could also be the culprit. A bottom bracket may have been nicked or cut causing it to peel. This makes the door close with one side higher than the other therefore binding the door which can cause the cable to fall off the drum. Other possibilities, for a cable to fall off the door, could be that the set screws have come loose or you could have a cracked or broken a cable drum. Regardless of how the cable has come off of your garage door, for your safety, please do not attempt to move or operate the garage door as this may cause you or a member of your family bodily harm. Often times, replacing parts may be just as expensive as, or even more so, than replacing the whole garage door.
