BFT two gate system - left side suddenly refuses to close
Hello all. Hope someone might be able to give me some pointers.

We’ve recently moved to a house with a BFT hydraulic gate system.  Double gates with LUX-FC-2B arms.

Last night the left hand gate refuses to close. You can hear activity from the motors but it will not move. I assumed it might be jammed somewhere but this does not look to be the case.

The only odd thing which I wondered “might” cause an issue is from the EBP-24 unit which is attached to the bottom of this side. I think the electric cable which runs to this may have become detached.

If this was the case would the gate refuse to move?

Secondly, I’ve read there is a triangular key to override the arm in cases like this. Of course, we have no such key! Is there a part number (and is this something EasyGates can help with)?

Cheers Tom.
Hi Tom,

When you say the gate refuses to move, can you hear it humming? Humming could be caused by one of two things.

1. Capacitor has disconnected or failed.
2. The oil is low, check to see if theres an oil leak or if it requires more oil
Kindest Regards,
