Do you hate the way in which your gate trembles and makes noises while it opens and closes automatically? The good news is that this issue can usually be resolved perfectly in little time. In many cases there is a need only for driveway gate adjustment. Find out how to deal with this problem effectively.

Proper Automatic Gate Troubleshooting

Restoring the Operation of a Shaking GateYou should start by checking the mechanical parts of the opener connected to the gate. Inspect their condition closely. It is best to clean them especially if the lubricant has got dust and dirt stuck to it. If you notice any damage to the components, they must be fixed or replaced right away to avoid further problems in the near future. It is better to replace sliding the gate chain when you notice that it is worn rather than to wait until it gets broken. Tighten the bolts of all components that appear loose. If the bolts are damaged or rusty, you should replace them with new ones of the same type and size.

You should follow the exact same steps with the metal parts not connected to the opener. Some parts are more important than others, however. In case of swing gate hinges, you should pay very close attention to their welding. If there is any damage to it, it must be repaired immediately to prevent the unit from collapsing completely. Keep in mind that hinges become worn more quickly than the other parts. That is why they require more frequent replacement. In case of sliding gates, you should look carefully at the wheel and rollers. If the sliding gate rollers make popping sounds, this indicates that they have gotten completely worn and require timely changing.

Whether you simply tighten the bolts or have new components installed in the place of the old ones, you must lubricate all of the moving parts to ensure smooth gate performance and to reduce the rate of wearing.
