As recommended by DASMA, Precision always performs a balance test on your door to determine whether your door is balanced correctly. If the door is not balanced, it'll exert an excessive amount of stress on the opener and strip the garage door opener gear (a new gear is pictured below). The balance test is simple, and you can do it yourself by watching the short video below.
A common cause of an unbalanced garage door is having the wrong size spring(s) on the door. The opener sprocket (pictured) can be stripped if the door is heavy. Do not hesitate to call us today at any of our locations to learn more about our openers. We will be happy to answer any further questions.
