When does your gate motor need a service or repair in Springs?
When you look closely at the gate motor there should be no oil leaking from any where if you see oil it means the oil is leaking from the gearbox and the gears could be running dry.
On some gate motors the oil leak can run over the pick up sensor and make the gate loose its place so you will find the gate opens and closes in the wrong place or bangs in to the end stops.
If you see oil its time to service the gate motor, we would remove the gate motor open up the gearbox clean out the old oil and what ever is in side and close up again using new seals on the gearbox and re filling with oil.
When the gate motor starts running slow this could either mean the gate motors batteries are running low or are busy packing up. This can be tested by the customer just go buy a battery replace the old one and see if this sorts out the problem or not.
Batteries can last a short period or a long period its depending on the quality of the gate motor battery and the movement of the gate but batteries could be changed as frequently as every 6 months.

Getting a professional out in Springs to weigh your sliding gate and measure pulling force will make choosing the right gate motor a lot easier, as well as calculating the amount of cycles your sliding gate will be running daily as well as any other accessories you will be running, all these are factors that should be taken into consideration when purchasing a gate motor or “gate operator”.
Residential sliding gate motors or gate operators are only guaranteed up to a certain amount of running cycles per day and should not be used for complex gates, residential gate motors are usually up to 100 cycles per day some even 50 cycles per day if you run the motor more than that the guarantee expires.
Make sure the weight of your gate does not exceed the recommended weight for the gate motor all makes.
If the gate is to heavy for the gate motor suggested pulling load it will strain the gate motor and cause costly repairs.
Industrial or commercial sliding gate motors or “gate operators” are used for heavy duty or high cycle applications for example doors opening 10 000 times a day can even be light doors like at hospitals or shopping centers.
All sliding gate motors should be installed or repaired by a gate professional and most definitely by some one trained in that field.
