Broken bft gates
Hi all,

I am new to this site, so please be kind

This morning my bft swing gates openedĀ fine, but now they will not move!

I have read other posts and the display in the main box says phot

When I press the open button the display changes from phot to strt then straight back to phot

I have cleaned the 4 sensors inside and out and am at a loss

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated

Many thanks


i would recommend removing all cells and running short leads from the cells directly to the panel.

this most likely will be a short on the cable causing the cells to go open circuit.

if not possible please bell out the cables for a continuity check.
