Gate Motor Maintenance

The main maintenance required for your gate motor is to make sure that no animals or insects get inside. No gate motor is completely sealed, so it is easy for them to get in and damage the electronics. In order to protect your motor you need to treat it with insect and, especially, ant repellents. Do not grease any part of the gate motor as dirt will stick to it and it will cause problems with the mechanics. It is important to look after your gate motor battery.
