    Hi, I got the manual from Are you referring to #38 (1/4"-20 Socket Head Screw) on page 15?
    Also, how do I reset the code on the gate and the remotes?

    That's weird that your gate turns but the chain doesn't open or close it. It may be that a wire isn't properly connected or something like that. A professional would probably be able to figure out the problem fairly quickly and fix it.

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.

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.

Hi,, i have a SL3000UL slide gate opener that stops half way.

well it seems like you have checcked almost everything. there are two things that come to mind that might be your problem, check the backup battery, messure it while on charge with a multi meter, the reading should be between 13.4v and 14.0v. if this is fine then if you have beams or loops installed try replacing them as they might be faulty.

How to wire a photo eye to a Ramset

Ok, so you only want the Ramset to receive power at night?
Or you want to reverse photo-eye operation and only have Ramset receive power in day?

Are you working with household single-phase, or commercial three phase?
If this is at your home, what voltage are you working with 120V or 240?
What size circuit breaker controls power to this unit. Is it a single breaker for 120Volt, or double breaker for 240Volt. Look for power line coming from circuit breaker box.
For household wiring (non 3-phase), the power line from breaker box will have 2 wires, plus a ground.
The additional wires you have are probably for reversing motor, but I can't see the wires.

Copy following link to get started. And then add a comment, or re-post with more details, for example if you have link to the product manual with wiring diagram.

Gate will not completely close.

Most likely your chain is not going to be your problem. When you pull the cover off of your SL 3000 there will be a little rectangle box on top. There is either one or 2 screws holding the lid down...loosen the screws and take the lid off. Inside there will be a long screw drive with 2 plastic nuts with teeth.At either end of the screw drive you will find a switch that one of the nuts should be resting on. (these are your limit switches that tell the motor when to stop) Run the gate open and closed...when you run it closed see if it is hitting one of the limit switches when it stops. (turn off the power) If so, hold back the plate keeping the nut in place and move the nut further away from the limit switch.(don't move it too far so that you don't slam the gate too hard into the catch post and hurt the post/gate/motor) Turn the power back on and run it again. Repete this untill the gate is stopping where you would like it too. e-mail me with any further questions
