ELECTRIC GATE REPAIRS FROM CM GATES & BARRIERS

Noise and alarms

If your gate is making noises that are new or sounds like there could be a fault with the opening and closing mechanisms, then contact our team. We provide servicing and repairs to both electric swing gates and electric sliding gates and work with both commercial and domestic customers.

Gate Won’t Open or Close

This usually occurs due to power outage. Automatic gates require constant supply of electricity to operate properly. Power outages and failures will prevent your automatic gate from working. If your gate is not opening or closing, then you should check whether there is a power outage. If there is no power outage or any other electrical problem, then test your automatic gate manually to identify any operational issues. Hire the help of a professional if you can’t identify the cause of the problem.

Faulty Remote Control

A faulty remote control is another common automatic gate problem. The remote control needs to be kept in good working condition if you want to make sure that it will be able to open and close your electric gate without any issues. Usually, the batteries of the remote control start to fade. You should check and replace the batteries and try again. If the problem is not solved, then replacing the remote is the only solution.

Stuck in Manual Mode

Sometimes, the gate becomes stuck in the manual mode and does not open and close automatically. There could be a problem with the batteries in the remote or with the gates opening mechanism. It is recommended that you check both problems to figure out why the gate is stuck in manual mode.

Worn Track

If the opening and closing movement of your automatic gate is not fluid, then it is recommended that you physically check your gates functionality. If the gate jerks along or gets stuck when opening and closing, then it is a sign that your track is worn.
