Broken springs for garage doors are frequent cause of cars getting stuck in garages. If your spring is broken it means that the weight of the door will be unbalanced and it will not be able to resist gravity. The top panel may begin stretching and the door could slide off track or tilt. It can also place a lot of stress on the suspension system.
