Your gate operatorr can or could be malfunction for several different reasons. Here are a few things that you can check for prior to having to calling a gate repair technician.

Here are some actions you can try to do on your own, for you do it yourselfer type people:                                   

  1. 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 slide gate operator or electric swing gate operator and removing the object or obstruction.
  2. If you have a LiftMaster LA412UL or any other type of solar powered gate openers, check to see if the solar panel is receiving full sunlight and free of any debris.
  3. 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.
  4. What the LED’s on a LA400 board indicate:
  5. Alarm – This LED will illuminate when the gates gets a double obstruction. Will flash 3 times if batteries are low.
  6. 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.
  7. Gate 1 – These are the open/close relays. These LED’s will illuminate when the board is providing 24VDC to the motor terminals.
  8. Gate 2 – These are the open/close relays. These LED’s will illuminate when the board is providing 24VDC to the motor terminals.
  9. Accessory Ovld – This LED will illuminate when there is more than 250 mA being drawn or a short across the accessory power output.
  10. Ovld – This LED will illuminate when there is more than 250 mA being drawn or a short across the switched accessory power output.
  11. Power – This LED will always be illuminated when there is AC or DC provided to the board.
  12. Chgr Ovld – This LED will illuminate when there is a short across the AC input.
  13. 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. 
  14. Motor(s) need resetting when: (SL3000UL)
  15. Reset Motor LED light flashes once, THEN System ON LED will flash rapidly.
  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Audio Alarm ON: (SL3000UL)

Probable Cause:

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

Solution:

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

  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. 9a. Inspect the batteries to ensure they are free of any type of corrosion.

9b. If corrosion is built up on the batteries or on or around the terminals and cable connections.

9c. You should disconnect the battery from the connection terminals and clean the     corrosion off both the batteries and connection terminals.

9d. Then reconnect the terminals onto the batteries and see if that works.

  1. You can do this by simply pressing your gate opener remote control button to ensure that you hear that the automatic swing or slide gate operator, solar swing or slide gate operator, battery backup swing or slide gate operator, or electric swing or slide gate operator is making a clicking sound.
