Common questions about automatic gate motor problems in Darwin and Palmerston

We’ve repaired and services automatic gate openers for many years and there are three really common questions we get all the time. Here they are.

What are the problems with gate motors in Darwin ?

The most common problem we come across up here, is the use of undersized batteries and solar panels for solar powered operators by other companies. We always upsize everything to cover you in a monsoon. And we’re sure you’ll thank us for that when you’re getting home nice and dry while a neighbour is caught in the rain. 

Why has my automatic gate motor has stopped working?

More often than not, we find a lot of gate motors suffer from the power surges we get up here. Because we have a solid, electrical heritage, we know how to get gate motors “done right”, and part of that is the installation of surge diverters, to help your gate motor combat the effects of storms and their power surges.

Why does my automatic gate open after closing? How can I fix it?

This is primarily due to a possible obstruction. If it is an automatic sliding gate opener with remotes, check the wheel track for any twigs or rocks. Such things can cause your gate motor to go into fault mode. If it’s an automatic swing gate opener, this problem can be due to force margins, whether it’s a single gate or a double swing gate.
