Repair & Installation

automatic gate part replacement san diegoAutomatic gates have increased in popularity over the last several years mainly because of the extra security, protection, and convenience they offer. They have also become quite affordable. However, automatic gates require maintenance from time to time. There are some automatic gate parts that malfunction and need replacement more often than others. You should know about them so you can properly maintain your automatic gate and make sure that it keeps working as it should.

Following are 6 automatic gate parts that most often need to be replaced:

1. Power Supply

This is one of the parts of an automatic gate that often malfunctions but some people don’t check. If there is a problem, you should first check the circuit breakers. Look at other equipment such as keypad or intercom to see if the lights are on. If the circuit breaker keeps tripping, then you may need to call an automatic gate repair service and have it repaired/replaced. Sometimes, replacing the battery is the only reliable solution.

2. Remote Control

If the remote control of your automatic gate ceases to function, then you probably just need to replace it’s batteries. However, sometimes there is another issue and replacing the batteries doesn’t help. If that is the case, then you will need to buy a new remote control. You should contact the company that installed your automatic gate in order to get all the information you need to buy a replacement remote control.

3. Gate Motors

Gate motors are one of the most important parts of automatic gates. Motors can be damaged by pests, water, and other items. Elements inside the motor such as wires and transmitter can also malfunction. In case of a motor malfunction, it is recommended that you contact your gate professional to have a look at it. Sometimes they require minor repairs but if the problem is severe, then you may need to replace the motor entirely.

4. Tracks

If you have an automatic sliding gate, then you may face a problem where your gate is not sliding smoothly or it gets stuck at certain points along the track. Twigs, stones, and other debris can damage the tracks and wheels of the gate. Call your local automatic gate expert to learn about what type of replacement parts or service you will need to fix the problem.

5. Keypad

Sometimes the keypad of the electric gate does not work as it should. If you find that access codes are not working properly, then you may need to reset your codes. However, if the problem persists, then you will need to call in a gate expert. There may be an electrical malfunction or a wiring issue that is preventing your keypad from working properly. Sometimes, replacing the keypad is the only reliable solution.

6. Light Sensors

Light sensors are a very important part of many automatic gates. Often, these sensors fail to respond correctly due to dust and other factors. If the issue is occurring because of dust, then you will simply need to clean the sensors off. However, you may need to replace them if the issue is not resolved.

I have to say that the service at Superior Gate Services was fantastic. Cindy first took my call and was super helpful and friendly.  We just bought a home that has an electric gate and we wanted it repaired and serviced.  She managed to get us into a slot the next day and called that next morning to give us a time range. Great follow-up! Our technician Sean (I hope I remembered his name correctly) was awesome and went through the repairs,  and gave several operating and home maintenance tips to my husband.  This company aims to please on all counts and delivers !!  We will be using them again and would definitely recommend them.

I got a quote the same afternoon I inquired, had the gate installed within a week, and Scott and his crew have always gone above and beyond to help out, even reconnecting my garage wires that the dog ripped out when they were just quoting me on the gate. If I've ever had any trouble, they go out of their way to come out promptly and help in anyway they can... Obviously without ever charging me for a visit. Highly recommend!!

Nothing but positive things to say about this company. I had called them last week first when my automatic gate stopped working but then remembered that I had a home warranty so told them never mind but then it ended up not being covered. So I emailed them back and they called me the next business day and came over within an hour! Scott came out and told me it just needed some tuning up and the actual opener was in good shape and one of the best ones. So he did a tune up and he helped me change the code for my gate opener!

Called these guys off their positive yelp reviews after getting the run around from another contractor. They took my first service call and responded quickly and took care of the problem and worked around my schedule. Since that first call uv had two other properties needing their services and just like the first call no hassles. Show up take care of it and reasonable prices. They don't hit you with extras like some others do they fix the problem and then they do a full tune up and cleaning on the gate at the same time. My other contractor would charge extra to do the tune up. That's dumb. Just make it happen. That's what they do. They just make it happen without taking you to the bank. Thanks superior for being on the team, your a great asset.
