BFT rigel 5 and LUX FL-2B issues plymouth

Bought a house with the rigel 5 and lux rams, the previous owner didnt want to use them so they were disconnected.

Ive connected them up and replaced a fuse in the controller, initial tests opened and closed the gates fine but after half dozen goes one gate opens 10% and the other 50%.

I wondered if the fact that at close and open there is hard stops (wood blocks) thats the motors in the rams kept pushing against for a couple seconds before cut out.  ( I thought this would be ok as they would go to a solid point then cut out)

Ive tried looking through the menu on the contorller (downloaded manual) and cant see much that will help.

Only thing I can think next is to remove the ram and apply 240V direct to it and see if that moves it the length of the action.

Im in plymouth devon - if there are any installers/fitters down here let me know.

I also live in Plymouth and had a gate fitted a couple of years ago. By far the best company around in South West Garage Doors. Jon Burtenshaw is the owner. They are based in Bodmin and somewhere further down in deepest Cornwall but cover Plymouth and Devon regularly.

Very helpful and very professional.
