Garage door won't open - even manually

9 years ago

Our garage door won�t open - the motor works, the chain moves, but it goes up 6" and stops. It acts like it is binding up on something. (And no, the lock isn't on)

Even when the door is released from the chain drive it is impossible to raise manually - it feels like it weighs 500lbs.

No idea what�s going on, but maybe it's the spring on the RH side that's broken? How difficult it that to replace?
