    hi, i changed one of the broken spring of my garage door ,its. Was working fine after i put the new spring,the next morning it open but on closing,it went down only about a foot. Both cables were off the drum and both torsion springs are unwind. I thought i go ahead rewind them and this time i extra thigthen the set screws on both springs and drums. It didnt work ,both cables are off the drums and torsion springs unwind again.
