Why Is the Electric Gate Not Closing?

03/19/2014 Back To Blog

When you have an automatic gate, you get the best of both worlds - the highest level of security and great convenience. You can expect a good quality model from a reputable brand to work perfectly at all times, but there can still be issues from time to time. One common problem is the electric gate not closing. Learn more about it and its causes.Electric Gate 24/7 Services

Identifying the Gate Operation Problem

The first thing which you need to do is to inspect the pathway of the door for any obstruction. Gravel may have stuck into the tracks or under the gate when you passed through it. Obstruction can be caused by leaves and other vegetation debris as well. Both swing and sliding structures suffer from this issue with the obvious exception being roll up gates. In the case of obstruction, all you need to do is to remove the culprit or culprits.

In many cases, the problem comes from the safety sensors. In order to confirm that this is the case, you need to turn the power off so that the opener stops working. In this way, the call box will simply release the gate and it will get back into its place. Then you need to turn the power back on and see if there is a light indicating an issue with the sensors.

It is easy to identify the sliding gate safety sensors. Similarly, the swing gate safety loop sensors are clearly visible. You will be ably to identify damage or obstruction straight away. In some cases, small animals looking for a warm place cause the issue. Moisture and misalignment can also be the causes of the problem.

It is all possible for the problem to come from the fact that the gate clicker is not working properly. It may have run out of battery. It may have got damaged.

Once you know what is preventing the gate from closing, you can take the right action to fix the problem.
