Hi Steve, it is not a pressure pad, it is a ground loop, which is just a wire going a few times in a loop that can pick up the magnetic mass of your vehicle. This 'change' in field is then fed to the control box when the car enters the field and the control box need to react on this. So it can be the ground loop wire or connections that are not working anymore, since it can be damaged by heavy vehicles, or the control box is not handling the information correctly. I would get a specialist to check this for you. Good luck.

SOURCE: The outgoing gate has a positive stop on it, but

Well it seems that their could be a limit switch problem. also if someone has replaced the limit switch they could have not connected the wires back up correctly. if your wiring and switch are correct than you have a bad circuit board. my opinion is to not even fix it and replace the whole opener with a gto-pto gp sl50 They are the most reliable opener out so far and come with all the features that elite charges extra for like a battery backup for instance.

SOURCE: my sl 3000 ul gate wont open unless I help it out

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

SOURCE: i have an elite robo swing r900 gate opener. gate

first check you battery and make sure it is putting out 12v dc then if you have a solar power system check the red and black wire comming from the panel and make sure it is putting out 24volts. if you panel is not putting out the volts it caused your battery to die so replace your panel and battery and all should work fine. if your using a trickel charger do the same check power its putting out and make sure its correct and also check the 120v ac comming in to the charger. Follow the steps it deffinatly sounds like a power issue.

Gate will open pushing open button but cant use remote


General answers only, sorry. Look for loose or corroded connections, especially where wire nuts were used. Reprogram the remote receiver. Disconnect power to the receiver for a short time. Reconnect and reprogram. I hopes that any of this helps. I have operators to the much like witch craft, a black science!

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.

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. :)
