More Garage Door issues

I was opening the small garage door this morning, and some wire snapped. Here we go again with the goddamned garage doors! It looks like a thin wire embedded in the rubber ‘chain’ band that retracts and extends the door between the door itself and the motor’s gear. I assume it’s an embedded wire in the rubber to maintain the tension of the band or else the rubber alone may flex as it gets older? Anyway, door still works so far. Lou called Raynor.

Sam came at around noon. All he did was clip off the hanging broken wire, saying there’ plenty strands in the rubber belt to hold it. Shit I coulda done that! He charged for the drive to the house… he also gave me 3 spools of wire for the sensor wire runs in case we have more rat/disconnect issues and I can splice myself.
