Question about Home Fencing
The first place to look is your receiver. This is the device, often separate from the actual gate operator, that responds to your transmitter. Stand next to the gate operator and you should hear a small click coming from the receiver when you or someone else pushes the button.
You can sometimes find the receiver by following the antenna cable back to it. If it does not have an external antenna, look inside the operator box for either an antenna screwed into the receiver or a wire hanging from a plastic box.
If you hear the click and the gate does not open, the possibilities grow exponentially so we won't try to address every possibility here. If you hear a click when you are close, but not when the transmitter is triggered at a distance, check the antenna.
If you don't hear the click, then either the remote has lost programming (this often happens with rolling codes transmitters when they are not used for a long time), or the receiver is not working.
Check to make sure the receiver is getting plenty of power power using a meter. It should read at the recommended voltage or a bit higher. Usually around 24 volts but some receivers can work down to 12 volts. If it gets plenty of power and the remotes have been programmed back in, consider replacing the receiver.

It appears your load balance sensor has failed in this instance.
For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...
FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.
PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.
If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.
Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.
If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Hi, Thanks for posting your Question.
When it comes to automatic usage of equipment or gadget that work with remotes sensors..It always malfunctions when water enters into it's electrical area..
Issues like this are have to be checked by an experienced Elite SL3000 sliding gate repairer..Water has enter either the coil area or the magnet that control the opening and closing function of the Gate..
It's not from the remote. That is if the battery of the remote still functions properly..
It needs to be serviced to clean the water inside and after cleaning it up, it will be ok..
Please make sure someone who has the experience should handle it. Thanks
Good luck ..
