Think it's your garage door opener opening and closing your door???? Think again........Counterbalance springs are how your door is actually lifted and closed. It is not the opener that actually lifts and closes your door. That just provides the push to get the door moving. It's actually the springs, which are wound tightly when your door is closed. As the door moves up, the springs unwind, which provide the force necessary to lift the door. As the door closes, the weight of the door actually winds the springs back up until it closes completely. At this point the springs have their full tension again. These springs are normally exposed and when they are under full tension, can be extremely dangerous.

A non insulated door is much lighter than it's insulated variant so due to that the opener will still be able to open it. In the long term the door will likely become damaged due to the stress that the opener exerts at the bracket that attaches it. That's something that you'll need to get checked and fixed to prevent damage to your door.
