Question about Estate Swing E-S 502 Classic Dual Swing Gate Opener Free Extra Remote
First make sure the transformer is charging the battery. This is the old, "Is it plugged in?" question, techs are told to ask first. Feel the transformer, (the box plugged into the outlet), and see if it is warm. If it is cold, check your outlet for electricity by plugging in something you know works. If you have electricity, either test the transformer or just replace it.
Most common problem after the power supply, is the battery getting old. They need to be changed every three to five years. The battery is easily changed. Just make sure you keep the polarity (the red and black wires) the same as the one you are taking out. Should you lose the polarity, put the red on the positive terminal and the black on the negative terminal.
After replacing either the power supply or the battery, give the operator a chance to recharge the battery. About two hours should do it for a single test run. Then let it charge up overnight.
The third issue is usually the gate is hanging up on something as it is opening and triggering the reverse mechanism. These work by detecting a surge in motor voltage as the motor begins to strain against whatever is slowing it down. There is a reverse sensitivity screw (potentiometer) on the board. Turning will either increase or decrease the reversing action.
If you have had the battery for five years, change it and see if the issue goes away. You need to do this anyway. If it is less than three years, try adjusting the sensitivity screw.

Check the units for something jamming the joints which causes them to cease automatically and return to their original stance.
