Question about Elite Sl 3000 Ul Sliding Gate Operator

Sliding gate will not close

Our sliding gate, which is operated by the Elite Sl 3000-UL system, keeps returning to open position when we tried to close it with the remote. It will close about halfway in its track, but then slides back open. We can close the gate by pushing it manually, but when in closed position, you can actually push it open. The gate also have a photoeye sensor. Any suggestions to fix the problem will be greatly appreciated!

    I had the same problem. Moisture, ice or dust on the photo eye can cause this. Clean it very thoroughly. The photo eye could also have moved and may not be aligned properly. Ice and rain was my problem I am looking for a product that will keep ice and rain from sticking to my photo eye.

    Mine does the same thing and it is spider webs and spiders in the sensor (photo eye) box. Cleaned it out and gate works fine.

Check track for obsticles, Does it slide smoothly or does it hand have way and get more difficult, Clean any sensors you can see with a clean rag. Let me know what you find.

Gate opens and closes randomly on its own. why


Hmm, this sounds spooky! ;-) No, seems you have radio interference from another source, you will have to see a specialist to work on another code or frequency.

Hope this helps.

Eagle slave gate not opening with master


Switch leads for master and slave to see if its a wiring issue. if the same gate fails to operate, it may not be your controller.

1. I have an elite slide gate opener it will open all the way and after a few sec will close. 2. With the remote the gate will not stop and stay in the open position.


the auto close has been set or the motor has been set up in reverse and it is auto reverseing,make sure the gate is opening up all the way, if it is not just help it along and see what happens.

My sl 3000 ul gate wont open unless I help it out after i press button on board I have to turn motor shaft and push on gate and then it will catch and opne/close. Is it my motor or my worm gear?


if the motor cant rotate the shaft by itself, its likely a burned coil in the motor, but if the motor is running but not moving the gate then its a broken gear

the elite does not have that function, your are going to need to look for a time clock that holds open your gate...... the outside phone system or a programmable time clock that has been added to your gate...... oh this is an old post sorry. :)
