Garage door springs are under a lot of tension. They can snap with great force. Attempting to fix your garage springs without the proper safety gear and knowledge can result in injuries to the face, eyes, and upper body. Some springs hold the door up. Removing the wrong spring can cause the garage door to fall and cause more damage than there already was. It's better to find a professional to fix the door because they have the right tools and equipment to determine and fix the problem, without you having to guess what's wrong with it.
As pointed out, the garage door is heavy. Left to fall it can damage itself, the floor, wall, or your car. If someone happens to be underneath the door when it comes down, they could get seriously injured. Taking off the wrong hinges or parts can cause the door to fall down unexpectedly. A professional knows which parts of the door to remove to avoid this from happening. Give them a call instead of attempting to do it yourself.
A trip to the emergency room can be really expensive. Even if the wound is relatively minor, you could end up missing time from work. Getting on a ladder while trying to fix a garage door can put you at risk of falling. Springs can fly out and hit you unexpectedly if you don't know what you're doing. All of these problems are easily mitigated by having a professional come in to repair your door.
Garage doors are unexpectedly complicated. They require specialized knowledge in both repairing and safety in order to do the job right and safely. If you fix the wrong thing, you could find yourself with a hefty repair bill for things unrelated to the garage door, like your vehicle or your garage.
