Common Problems with Swinging Gates

11/10/2013 Back To Blog

You have a swinging gate that allows for access to your driveway and, ultimately, your home. It offers a level of security and privacy that you would not otherwise have. Everything is great until you run into a problem. Here are some common problems with this type of device.

It Will Not Open

The most common problem that you will encounter is the electric gate not closing. There are a variety of reasons this may occur beginning with the power source. Check to see if the power is out. You should check your electrical mains inside your home and also the circuit breakers and make sure everything is switched on. If it still won't open, it could be that the problem is with your remote control.

Remote Does Not Work

If you have noticed that your door does not open and you have checked the power, the problem may be with your gate remote. Try operating the device manually. Enter your codes into the access panel. If the opening takes place, then the problem is more than likely with your remote transmitter. Check the batteries and make sure they are functional.

Door Hits the Ground

When the door swings open, it hits the ground. If you have an upward sloping driveway, this condition may occur. You will need a driveway gate adjustment to solve the problem. The gate can be hung on a higher post which will allow for more clearance on the bottom. Another fix is to have the door swing in the opposite direction, if possible.

Sensor Problems

When opening and closing, the safety features do not work. With swinging door models, the swing gate safety loop sensor is common. When a vehicle is on top of the sensor, the gate will immediately reverse so as not to hurt or damage a vehicle, person, or pet. Similarly, a sliding gate safety sensor works much the same. Check to make sure the sensors are working properly.
