There is no internal clutch for the linear actuator gate motors... only a mechanical limit switch(micro-switch) which is only relevant in the arm-retracting motion, and a sight-wheel & eye which is used for electronic limits in the arm-extending motion.

I replace the mothrboard on elite slidding gate but the batery loses power

Since you have a battery and it is a sliding gate, I will assume you have a Roboslide model by Elite. The battery has to be charged in order for the gate to work. The charging comes from a transformer or a solar panel. Check to make sure these have power coming out of them. Most gate operators use a transformer and if the two wires providing the voltage touch each other, it will blow the transformer. If you have a volt ohm meter you can check this. You might need to use the AC setting as well as the DC since some are 18 volt DC and others are 25 volt DC. You can do the same for a solar panel but only use the DC setting.

If this is not your issue, then make sure it is your battery draining and not something binding in either the motor or the gate. Finally, it could be the motor going out. Simply hook the charged up battery directly to the motor to check it. It should respond strongly. Reverse the leads to make the motor go the other way.

Good luck.

My nice sliding gate only closes with the fob and will not open

There are several possible causes, but the first to check is the limit switches. When the gate opens, it is supposed to trip a limit switch that tells the mechanism that the gate is fully open. If the switch is not tripped, it will not respond properly to a command to close. It may think the gate is running into an obstruction and then just shuts down.

Have a BFT Phobos BT gate opener. The problem I am having is my gate won't close all the way. There is a small gap. I tried to set the limit switch by removing the screw but it isn't...

The opener may have been mounted improperly or may have slipped from it's original mounting location. You may not be able to make an adjustment because the arm is already fully extended.
You may have to re-position the gate opener.

Hi Mary, do you have more than one remote for the gate? Your remote needs to be paired with the gate receiver. Normally you need to push a certain button on the control panel to enable learning mode then you press the remote button you want to use. You will have to follow this learning process for your device. Please keep in mind that just any remote will not work with your gate, it needs to be on the same frequency and use the same modulation mode.
Hope this helps.

My gate starts to open but then stops

Need more information.
Firstly, engage the manual release inside your motor and then operate gate by hand. Pay attention to any spots that are hard to push, this would indicate some sort of mechanical obstruction causing the motor to stop. Try remove obstruction.
Secondly, measure the voltage on your battery while trying to operate the gate. If your battery drops below 11.5V the control board will shut down. If so, replace battery.

My elite gate won't close. the charge ok led light is not on. checked everything and it's ok. switch limit switch on both sides works fine except when trying to close, it won't run.

If you disengage the motor does the gate slide easily? if not that could be the problem, most gate control boards have a sensor that detects the current drawn by the motor, if the gate hits an obstruction or is jammed the motor draws more current and the sensor stops the gate moving. It could also be a problem with the safety sensor, to check this locate the safety sensor input on the control panel and bridge the 2 contacts if the gate then works the safety sensor is the problem.

Hi, My electric gate RAMSET 100 turns but does not pull the chain to close or open the sliding gate. What do you think it's wrong with it? Thanks in advance.

Look for a broken or missing shear pin that connects the drive sprocket to the motor. the pieces should still be in the sprocket and motor shaft if it is a roll pin, which I would expect, and will need to be punched out with an appropriatly sized drift pin punch, It's usually easier to drive out the pieces if the sprocket is removed from the shaft so the holes don't have to be matched up. Replace the pin with one of the same size if available, a soft steel bolt and nut may be used in a pinch but should be replaced with the proper roll pin as soon as possible.

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
