If you have an automatic gate system at your residence or business, there will be times that your gate operator(s) will break down and need to be repaired. When your openers aren’t working properly, your electric gates won’t function as they should (if at all). This often causes frustration and could potentially jeopardize your property’s security.

Please do not try making repairs to your operator on your own! If you try to make the repairs yourself, you may end up making the problems worse or even causing significant damage to the operator unit itself.

Our highly-skilled technicians have substantial experience diagnosing problems and successfully servicing gate operators. Save yourself a potential headache and let us handle all of the necessary maintenance and repair.

Here are some common indications that your electric gate opener may be in need of repair:

  • Automatic Gate opens and/or closes slower than it should.
  • Automatic Gate is delayed in its movements.
  • Automatic Gate does not open or close at all.
  • Automatic Gate doesn’t open to or stop where it should.
  • Automatic Gate goes in the wrong direction /opens the wrong way.
  • Automatic Gate opens or closes when it shouldn’t.
  • Automatic Gate only works if someone is standing in front of it.
  • Automatic Gate locks are jamming.
  • Automatic Gate is making beeping noises.

These are some of the common reasons for gate operator malfunctions:

  • Chain is damaged or broken.
  • Operator’s circuit board is damaged.
  • Problems with the power supply.
  • Problems with limit switches.
  • Battery and metal component deficits due to cold weather.
  • Animals, debris and/or excessive moisture getting into the unit.

When you notice these potential problems, please contact us as soon as possible. It is best not to delay in getting your automatic gate system inspected and repaired. The longer the problems go untreated, the greater the chance that the system’s functioning will further deteriorate.

With this in mind, PSS Garage Doors & Gates offers cost-effective preventative maintenance performed every 3 months, 6 months, or 12 months.

There is no limit on the number of gates we can take care of for you.

When our technicians come to perform preventative maintenance, they will consult with you regarding any gate performance issues you may have noticed, and will also work through an extensive maintenance checklist to ensure that all components of your gate system are carefully examined and adjusted as necessary.
