What is the life of a gate limiter magnet?
Hi all,

I see a lot of quite technical threads here, fascinating actually, but mine is a little basic.

My gate motor (LDY, a Thai make) has been installed 5 years with no issues, but over the past months the motor has not been cutting out when the door has closed, and reverses unless I shut if off it manually with a remote. As the gate has been jamming shut more now I finally need to address this.

Can one of the magnets attached to the gate have reached the end of its life? If so do I need to buy my new pair from the manufacturer, or are they pretty generic?  

They look exactly like this:

Thanks for any help you can give!
