Gate Motor Repair or New Gate Motor Installation?

  • This is one of the most important question to ask any repairs company!
  • It depends on how old the gate motor is and,
  • It depends on what is broken

If it is a very old installation, you will generally get far better value for your money to replace. However, if you are on a tight budget, we will try and meet your budget constraints and advise you the best options for your electric gate repair.

Gate Motor Maintenance

Both the gate and the motor need to be maintained. When it comes to the gate, you must keep the gate rails and the wheels clean. Always remove any debris from that area. For examples, soil, leaves, stones, sand etc. You may find that you need to build a retaining wall or add special drainage so that soil is not washed to the gate area and also so that water does not collect around the motor.

You need to make sure that the wheels are running smoothly all of the time otherwise the gate motor has to work harder and will not last as long.

The main maintenance required for your gate motor is to make sure that no animals or insects get inside. No gate motor is completely sealed, so it is easy for them to get in and damage the electronics. In order to protect your motor you need to treat it with insect and, especially, ant repellents.

Do not grease any part of the gate motor as dirt will stick to it and it will cause problems with the mechanics.

Maintaining your gate and gate motor can increase the life of your gate motor and delay the need for a new gate motor installation.
