Your electrical gate is incredibly useful on a daily basis. It’s convenient, practical and beautiful. However just like with any other form of brilliant technology, malfunctions or breakdowns can prove to be incredibly frustrating. Common malfunctions with automatic gates can include a delay in responsiveness, complete disablement, catching or stopping during movement and being excessively noisy. It is possible to correct all of these issues without having to purchase an entirely new opener system.
Problems with electrical components
A delayed response can be caused by an electrical supply issue. In cold weather the battery can lose its ability to create sufficient electrical charge to power the system on first instruction. It can take a few attempts at activating the system before the battery warms up enough to function. If your gate refuses to open at all, one of the most common causes for this is a sensor issue. For safety reasons the sensors prevent the gates from activating when they detect the presence of an object it the way. They could be misaligned, and this would prevent them from allowing the gates to move at all.
Sliding gates that run along a track can be halted and reversed if their tracks become filled with objects or dirt. The tracks will naturally become filled with dirt over time if they are not cleaned regularly. This dirt can be compounded by the weight of the gate each time it travels over the track until it becomes too dense at a certain point to allow the gate to pass. Tracks can also be dented and damaged, which if not corrected early can lead to far more demanding gate repair processes in future.
