As usual it is always in the best interest for you the homeowner and consumer, to repair or have repaired any minor issues that may arise from your automatic swing or sliding gate operator. Your automatic swing and slide gate operator could be malfunctioning for several different reasons.

Here are a few simple things you can try to do on your own if you’re a do it yourselfer type person.                                  

  1. Note: If it is a solar powered swing or slide gate opener you will need to check the batteries to ensure that they are fully charged and connected correctly at the terminals. 3a. Inspect the batteries to ensure they are free of any type of corrosion.

3b. If corrosion is built up on the batteries or on or around the terminals and cable connections.

3c. You should disconnect the battery from the connection terminals and clean the     corrosion off both the batteries and connection terminals.

3d. Then reconnect the terminals onto the batteries and see if that works.

  1. Just 1 10th of the solar panel being blocked from direct sunlight can cause the batteries not to fully charge, thus causing the solar powered swing or slide gate operator not to function properly.
  2. Inspect the surrounding area to ensure there is nothing physically interfering with the movement of your automatic, electric, battery backup, or solar slide gate operator, such as an object or obstruction on the “V” track or an object interfering the in gear or belt mechanisms compartment. If you find an object that is causing the interference, sometimes it can be as easy as powering off the automatic, electric, battery backup, or solar slide gate operator or swing gate operator and removing the object or obstruction.
  3. Verify that your automatic swing or sliding gate opener, solar swing or sliding gate opener, battery backup swing or sliding gate opener, or electric swing or sliding gate opener has electrical power going to it.
  4. You should check the breaker that the automatic swing gate operator or electric slide gate operator is connected to by switching the breaker off and switching the breaker back on again.
  5. What the LED’s on a LA400 board indicate:
  6. Alarm – This LED will illuminate when the gates gets a double obstruction. Will flash 3 times if batteries are low.
  7. Maglock – This LED will illuminate while opening and closing and be off when the gate is on a limit. This will only happen as long as Dip #2 (Mag) is On.
  8. Gate 1 – These are the open/close relays. These LED’s will illuminate when the board is providing 24VDC to the motor terminals.
  9. Gate 2 – These are the open/close relays. These LED’s will illuminate when the board is providing 24VDC to the motor terminals.
  10. Accessory Ovld – This LED will illuminate when there is more than 250 mA being drawn or a short across the accessory power output.
  11. Ovld – This LED will illuminate when there is more than 250 mA being drawn or a short across the switched accessory power output.
  12. Power – This LED will always be illuminated when there is AC or DC provided to the board.
  13. Chgr Ovld – This LED will illuminate when there is a short across the AC input.
  14. Fuse Open – This LED will illuminate when the fuse is bad. The fuse will blow out if there is a short on the batteries or if the batteries are bad. 
  15. Motor(s) need resetting when: (SL3000UL)
  16. Reset Motor LED light flashes once, THEN System ON LED will flash rapidly.
  17. Audio Alarm ON: (SL3000UL)

Probable Cause:

8a. Gate has encountered two consecutive obstructions while trying to close or open.


8A. Any re-new command will resume normal operation but not a radio command. Check for obstructions.

8B. You can stop the alarm by using the built-in reset button

8C. You can stop the alarm by using an optional stop button

About Wylie, TX

Wylie is a city and northeastern suburb of Dallas, that was once solely located in Collin County, but now extends into neighboring Dallas County and Rockwall County in the United States of America, in Texas. Wylie is located on State Highway 78 about 24 miles northeast of the city of Dallas and is centrally located between nearby Lake Lavon and Lake Ray Hubbard.

Originally named Nickelville, supposedly after the name of the first store, it was organized in the early 1870s. The Gulf, Colorado, and Santa Fe Railway laid tracks one half mile north of the original townsite in 1886. The businesses of Nickelville moved so they could take advantage of the railroad within the following year, then the City of Wylie was incorporated in 1887 along the right of way. It was named for Lt. Colonel William D. Wylie, a right of way agent for the railroad and a Civil War veteran.

That same year, Wylie had given itself its name, established a post office branch, and incorporated, choosing an alderman form of government. Two years later, the St. Louis Southwestern Railway reached the town. The two railroads and the rich agricultural region of the Blackland Prairies contributed to the town’s growth. In 1890, Wylie had a population of 400 residents and the first one room schoolhouse was built. By 1900, Wylie had grown to a population of 773 residents. Before 1920, the community had over 35 businesses, including two banks, a schoolhouse, and a weekly newspaper.

Unlike many rural Texas communities, Wylie grew during the Great Depression years, reaching 914 residents by 1940. In part, this was a result of increased dairy farming to meet the demands of nearby city of Dallas. Following World War II, the population increase continued.

Onions were the town’s cash crop in the 1930s and 1940s. “Wide Awake Wylie” became the city’s nickname in the late 1940s and 1950s, a result of late night get togethers of its citizens and businesses that stayed open until midnight on some evenings.

Designed to provide water for towns in four counties, the construction of the Lavon Dam and Reservoir 5 miles north of town, and the selection of Wylie to house the offices of the North Texas Municipal Water District, pushed the population to 1,804 in 1960.
