A faulty PC Board is a likely cause of a gate motor not working. A good indication if this is probable is to determine if the break-down occurred after a lightning storm.
Another electronic component is the remote control receiver. It could form part of the main PC board (newer motors). It is an add-on unit in many of the older motors.
The safety beams connects to the main PC Board. A faulty beam will allow a gate to open, but not to close.
Gearboxes on gate motors can get damaged. The most common cause is when the weight of the gate becomes too heavy. This happens mainly when the wheels becomes worn and not replaced soon enough. Regular maintenance inspections should pick this up.
Sand particles can damage the wheel bearings. Keep the gate area clean from sand build-up. Replace (or have them replaced) before it’s too late.
Just in case you wondered about the meaning of these words:- the rack is the teeth running at the bottom all along the gate. The pinion is the gear protruding at the back of the motor that engages with the rack to make the gate move. Keep your hands and fingers clear from this area!
It may be necessary to replace or adjust the rack and pinion due to wear. You know that it needs attention when the pinion (gear) turns without the gate moving.
Battery; A gate motor repair could involve the replacement of the battery as well. A gate that becomes sluggish or seems not to have enough energy to complete the full opening cycle probably needs new batteries.
Every situation is different which makes it impossible to predict the life expectancy of a battery.
It is good practice to change to a bigger battery where frequent power failures are experienced. Have the batteries changed every two to three years.
