What's wrong?!?! Garage door only goes up a few inches when you try to open it with your remote or wall button. You try again. Same result! You pull the red release cord attached to the opener arm and if the door is still a few inches off the ground it's either hard to pull or it does release and the door slams shut! When you release the opener and try to lift the door manually. Forget about it! Way too heavy! Very likely a broken spring. Most doors have torsion springs coiled around a pipe mounted above the door. Often two mounted back to back. A broken spring will have a one and a 1 and 1/2" to 2" gap between the coiled wire.
