BFT Gate Opener not closing
#1
Hello,

since the weather has got a few degrees lower. My wife has been leaving for work around 7:30, opens the gate and leaves. The gate should close on its own accord after 15 seconds. I leave around 8, come outside and the gate is open. Then I try to close to gate and it appears to be stuck in a loop, moves a bit and goes back to stationary position. sometimes it goes halfway theĀ  goes back to stationary position. Surely this can not be because of cold weather? has anyone else experienced the same? does anyone have a solution to this? As i do not envisage it getting warmer anytime soon?

I have exactly the same problem, did you solve it?

Does the gate move though it's travel smoothly in manual override?

How long have the motors been installed for, are they lubricated regularly?
