Electric Gate


My gate (Elite Miracle 1) will not open or close. I replaced the fuse to the motor which was blown and she opened ok. Second attempt - nothing. Again, the motor fuse was blown.

I greased the spindle which was pretty dry, but the same thing happened again.

Any ideas what could be the issue?

Thanks,

Tony

Short circuit or overload.

If possible disconnect the gate from the motor and see if it runs without any load. If it still blows the fuse then it's a short in the control panel or motor in most cases.
