Easy Maintenance for Your Gate

11/10/2013 Back To Blog

If you have had a new gate installation, you want to make sure that you extend its life. Maintenance service is necessary and is paramount in keeping your unit functioning properly. Here are some easy maintenance tips that you can follow to help keep your device working for a long time to come.

Check for Obstructions

If your gate isn’t opening or closing correctly, the problem may be as simple as something obstructing its path. With a swinging version, walk along the opening and closing path and see if there may be something in the way. Remove it and then test by opening or closing once again. You can also check a swinging model by waving an object in the path of the gate and listening for a clicking sound. If you hear the click, you have an obstruction. Sliding models may have a sliding gate safety sensor, so you would simply walk along the path looking for any impediment.

Check the Remote Controls

Just like a garage door opener, your gate remote will have a transmitter that signals it whether to open or close. If you notice that nothing happens when you use the remote, you may want to check the batteries. Most units will have a light indicator which tells you if the remote has power. If the light is out, you know you need to change the batteries. You can also check the access panels to make sure they are functional by keying in your codes.

Check To Make Sure There Is Power

One of the first things you might want to check is the power to the gate. If there are other electrical items installed, you can check those. If they are not receiving power, it is highly likely that the gate is not either. Check inside your home for the electrical mains. Make sure they are switched on. Next, check the individual circuit and make sure that it is also switched on.

Check Motors

All residential gate openers have a motor that is responsible for opening and closing it. No matter the type, swinging or sliding, if the motors are operating correctly, there will be problems. If you notice something that does not seem right, the motor may need repaired or replaced.
