Question about Elite Sl 3000 Ul Sliding Gate Operator
I have an Elite Miracle One that has been working for years. After a recent rain storm it no longer slows down before the positive stop. Do you think this is a controller board issue? I also noticed that the red and brown brake wires that are connected to the swing arm lead to a shorted connection inside the motor. Is this normal? Or could there be a short inside the swing arm? I wish I had a schematic so I could better understood how the brake functionality works.
Take a look here for an exploded parts diagram
and here to download the manual
The shorted out section sounds like it might be the problem. But comparing this with the installation manual and diagrams for wiring should help you
Thanks for using FIXYA

This would be either a control board or power supply/power suppply board. The supply would be the first thing I would test with a voltmeter. There should be a label on the unit that says the DC Voltage Output on it to match the voltmeter's reading.

Hello. As you probably know this is the cadillac of gate openers. That said, a shorted connection is never a good sign and always the first place to look deeper. Here is the manual http://www.amazinggates.com/Do_It_Yourself/web/Manuals/Elite-SL_3000-manual.pdf

Above is your manual, this has much information. From what you describe, I would think "Sensor" or "Drive" for the sensor. IF there was a Short, I don't really think, it would actually go? What you need to do, is use the manual and perform the troubleshooting steps, and check all sensors switches, etc. If the windings are shorted, then accordingly the "Drive" too, well, that would most likely be destroyed.. if it is so, you will need to check that too.and replace it.
