Gate Construction
Vehicular gates should be constructed and installed in accordance with ASTM F2200; Standard Specification for Automated
Vehicular Gate Construction. For a copy of this standard, contact ASTM directly at 610-832-9585; service@astm.org; or
www.astm.org.
Important Safety Instructions
WARNING - To reduce the risk of injury or death:
1. READ AND FOLLOW ALL INSTRUCTIONS.
2. Never let children operate or play with gate controls. Keep the remote control away from children.
3. Always keep people and objects away from gate. NO ONE SHOULD CROSS THE PATH OF THE MOVING GATE.
4. Test the operator monthly. The gate MUST reverse on contact with a rigid object or stop or reverse when an object
activates the non-contact sensors. After adjusting the force or the limit of travel, retest the gate operator. Failure to adjust
and retest the gate operator properly can increase the risk of injury or death.
5. Use the emergency release only when the gate is not moving.
6. KEEP GATES PROPERLY MAINTAINED. Read the owner's manual. Have a qualified service person make repairs to gate
hardware.
7. The entrance is for vehicles only. Pedestrians must use separate entrance.
8. SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS!
Instructions regarding intended installation:
• Install the gate operator only if:
1. The operator is appropriate for the construction of the gate and the usage class of the gate.
2. All openings of a horizontal slide gate are guarded or screened from the bottom of the gate to a minimum of 4 feet
(1.22 m) above the ground to prevent a 2 ¼ inch (57.2 mm) diameter sphere from passing through the openings
anywhere in the gate, and in that portion of the adjacent fence that the gate covers in the open position.
3. All exposed pinch points are eliminated or guarded.
4. Guarding is supplied for exposed rollers.
• The operator is intended for installation only on gates used for vehicles. Pedestrians must be supplied with a separate
access opening. The pedestrian access opening shall be designed to promote pedestrian usage. Locate the gate such that
persons will not come in contact with the vehicular gate during the entire path of travel of the vehicular gate.
• The gate must be installed in a location so that enough clearance is supplied between the gate and adjacent structures
when opening and closing to reduce the risk of entrapment. Swinging gates should not open into public access areas.
• The gate must be properly installed and work freely in both directions prior to the installation of the gate operator. Do not
over-tighten the operator clutch, pressure relief valve or reduce reversing sensitivity to compensate for a damaged gate.
• For gate operators utilizing Type D protection:
1. The gate operator controls must be placed so that the user has full view of the gate area when the gate is moving.
2. A warning placard shall be placed adjacent to the controls.
3. An automatic closing device (such as a timer, loop sensor, or similar device) shall not be employed.
4. No other activation device shall be connected.
• Controls intended for user activation must be located at least ten feet (10’) away from any moving part of the gate and
where the user is prevented from reaching over, under, around or through the gate to operate the controls. Outdoor or
easily accessible controls should have a security feature to prevent unauthorized use.
• The Stop and/or Reset button must be located in the line-of-sight of the gate. Activation of the reset control shall not
cause the operator to start.
• A minimum of two (2) WARNING SIGNS shall be installed, one on each side of the gate where easily visible.
• For gate operators utilizing a non-contact sensor:
1. See the instructions on the placement of non-contact sensors for each type of application.
2. Care shall be exercised to reduce the risk of nuisance tripping, such as when a vehicle trips the sensor while the gate
is still moving in the opening direction.
3. One or more non-contact sensors shall be located where the risk of entrapment or obstruction exist, such as the
perimeter reachable by a moving gate or barrier.
4
6300-065-K-9-08
• For gate operators utilizing contact sensors:
1. One or more contact sensors shall be located where the risk of entrapment or obstruction exist, such as at the
leading edge, trailing edge, and post mounted both inside and outside of a vehicular horizontal slide gate.
2. One or more contact sensors shall be located at the bottom edge of a vehicular vertical lift gate.
3. One or more contact sensors shall be located at the pinch point of a vehicular vertical pivot gate.
4. A hardwired contact sensor shall be located and its wiring arranged so that the communication between the sensor
and the gate operator is not subjected to mechanical damage.
5. A wireless contact sensor such as one that transmits radio frequency (RF) signals to the gate operator for
entrapment protection functions shall be located where the transmission of the signals are not obstructed or
impeded by building structures, natural landscaping or similar obstructions. A wireless contact sensor shall function
under the intended end-use conditions.
6. One or more contact sensors shall be located at the bottom edge of a vertical barrier (arm).
Important Notices
Vehicular gate operator products provide convenience and security. However, gate operators must use high levels of force
to move gates and most people underestimate the power of these systems and do not realize the potential hazards associated with an incorrectly designed or installed system. These hazards may include:
• Pinch points
• Entrapment areas
• Reach through hazards
• Absence of entrapment protection devices
• Improperly located access controls
• Absence of vehicle protection devices
• Absence of controlled pedestrian access
In addition to these potential hazards, automated vehicular gate systems must be installed in accordance with the UL-325
Safety Standard and the ASTM F2200 Construction Standard. Most lay persons are unaware of, or are not familiar with,
these standards. If an automated vehicular gate system is not properly designed, installed, used and maintained, serious
injuries or death can result. Be sure that the installer has instructed you on the proper operation of the gate and gate
operator system.
Be sure that the installer has trained you about the basic functions of the required reversing systems associated with your
gate operating system and how to test them. These include reversing loops, inherent reversing system, electric edges,
photoelectric cells, or other external devices.
• This Owner’s Manual is your property. Keep it in a safe place for future reference.
• Be sure that all access control devices are installed a minimum distance of 10 feet away from the gate and gate
operator, or in such a way that a person cannot touch the gate or gate operator while using the device. If access
control devices are installed in violation of these restrictions, immediately remove the gate operator from service
and contact your installing dealer.
• Loops and loop detectors, photo-cells or other equivalent devices must be installed to prevent the gate from
closing on vehicular traffic.
• The speed limit for vehicular traffic through the gate area is 5 MPH. Install speed bumps and signs to keep
vehicular traffic from speeding through the gate area. Failure to adhere to posted speed limits can result in
damage to the gate, gate operator, and to the vehicle.
• Be sure that all persons who will use the gate system are familiar with the proper use of the gate and gate
operator and are familiar with the possible hazards associated with the gate system.
• Be sure that warning signs are permanently installed on both sides of the gate in an area where they are fully
visible to traffic.
• It is your responsibility to periodically check all entrapment protection devices. If any of these devices are
observed to function improperly, remove the operator from service immediately and contact your installing or
servicing dealer.
• Follow the recommended maintenance schedule.
• Do not allow children to play in the area of the operator or to play with any gate-operating device.
• To remove the gate operator from service, operate the gate to the full open position and then shut off power to
the operator at the service panel.

Never run high voltage and low voltage wires in the same conduit.
• The conduit requirements are for a typical swing gate operator installation (the secondary operator is shown for
those applications where a secondary operator may be used). The conduit requirements for your application may
vary from this depending on your specific needs.
• Use only sweeps for conduit bends. Do not use 90° connectors as this will make wire pulls very difficult and can
cause damage to wire insulation.
• We suggest that minimum 3/4-inch conduit be used to protect wires from the elements.
• Be sure that all conduits are installed in accordance with local codes.

1.8 Installation of Warning Signs
This DoorKing Swing Gate Operator is shipped with two warning
signs. The purpose of the warning sign is to alert uninformed
persons, and to remind persons familiar with the gate system, that
a possible hazard exists so that appropriate action can be taken to
avoid the hazard or to reduce exposure to the hazard.
• Permanently install the supplied warning signs in locations so
that the signs are visible by persons on both sides of the gate.
• Use appropriate hardware such as wood or sheet metal screws
(not supplied) to install the warning signs.

SECTION 2 - WIRING
Before attempting to connect any wiring to the operator, be sure that the circuit breaker in the electrical panel is in the OFF
position. Permanent wiring must be installed to the operator as required by local electrical codes. It is recommended that a
licensed electrical contractor perform this work.
Since building codes vary from city to city, we highly recommend that you check with your local building department prior
to installing any permanent wiring to be sure that all wiring to the operator (both high and low voltage) complies with local
code requirements.
THIS GATE OPERATOR MUST BE PROPERLY GROUNDED!!
2.1 High Voltage Wire Runs
The distance shown in the chart is measured in “Feet” from the operator to the power source. If power wiring is greater
than the maximum distance shown, it is recommended that a service feeder be installed. When large gauge wire is used, a
separate junction box must be installed for the operator connection. The wire table is based on stranded copper wire. Wire
run calculations are based on a 110 VAC power source with a 3% voltage drop on the power line, plus an additional 10%
reduction in distance to allow for other losses in the system.
This table illustrates the high voltage wire size and distance requirements.

Switches 1-2 These work in conjunction with each other and determine when the relay on the board will be activated. This relay
can be used as a switch for various functions such as illuminating a warning light when the gate is moving, or turning on a
green light when the gate is full open. This relay is NOT available for these uses if it is being used for the shadow loop function.
Switch 3 Determines if the output of the loop detector (DoorKing loop detectors only) plugged into the EXIT port will be sent
directly to the microprocessor to open the gate, or if the output is directed to Terminal 4 where it can then be connected to other
input terminals.
Switch 4 Turns the auto close timer on or off. Maximum time that the close timer can be set for is approximately 23 seconds.
Switch 5 This switch enables the 4502 circuit board to be used in either a swing gate or slide gate application. Some older
DoorKing slide gate operators did use the 4501 circuit board for control. This switch is here to allow use of this board on these
older products.
Switch 6 Sets up the circuit board for single button or 3-button (open-close-stop) logic (DoorKing 3-button control stations
only). Keep this switch in the ON position for single button control.
Switch 7 Sets up the circuit board for single or primary / secondary (dual) gate operation.
Switch 8 If the gate is forced open, the tamper-protect system will start the motor in the close direction when the operator
senses the forced open condition.

Switch 2 Sets direction of the secondary operator so that the operator cycles open upon initial power up and open command. If
the operator begins to cycle close upon initial power up and open command, turn power off and change the setting on this
switch.
Switch 3 This switch is a self-test feature that checks various functions of the circuit board and is used for bench test only.
Do not run this test with the operator connected to the gate.
Switch 4 This switch applies high voltage motor power to the secondary operator motor terminal located at the top of the board.
If a primary / secondary system is in use, this switch should be ON and the secondary motor wires connected to the secondary
operator motor terminal. For single gate applications, this switch can be turned OFF.
Switch 5 This switch sets the input at Terminal 15 to act as a normal reverse input or to act as a shadow input. A shadow input
will only hold the gate operator in the open position once it is in the full open position. A shadow input will not reverse the
direction of the gate operator once it begins its close cycle.
Switch 6 Used in primary / secondary applications, turning this switch ON will cause the start of the primary operator to be
delayed 1-2 seconds. This allows the secondary gate to reach the full closed position prior to the primary gate, which is
desirable when the gates are constructed with an overlap or if a magnetic lock is used to secure the gates.
Switches 7 and 8 Spare switches, leave in the OFF position.

3.4 Automatic Limit Adjustment
The FIRST time the operator is cycled, it will automatically set the open and close limits. The arms MUST be in the
correct closed configuration (See 1.7 on page 14). DO NOT cycle the operator until the arms are in the correct configuration.
The gate open and close positions are determined by the physical stop “flange” on the elbow assembly (See 1.6 on page 13).
Activate an open device (or momentarily jump across terminals 11 and 20). The gate operator should begin to cycle to the
OPEN position. If the gate operator begins to cycle the gate to the CLOSED position, turn AC power switch OFF, change the
setting of the DIP-switch(s). Primary or single operator, change SW 2, switch 1. Secondary operator, change SW 2, switch 2.
After the gate cycles to the full OPEN position, the clutch will slip for approximately 2 seconds and shut off. Activate a keying
device to close the gate (or allow the timer to close the gate if it is turned on). When the gate cycles to the full closed position,
the clutch will slip for approximately 2 seconds and shut off. The operator limits are now set.
Note: During this initial cycling, be sure that the operator clutch does not slip while the gate is in mid-cycle. If the clutch
slips during mid-cycle, the limit setting will not be correct. Tighten the jamb nut and retry, see below.
Cycle the operator again. Operator will reach the open and close positions and shut off without the clutch slipping.
3.5 Entrapment Sensing Adjustment (Adjustable Clutch)
This vehicular gate operator is equipped with an inherent adjustable clutch (Type C) that is used as the primary entrapment
sensing system. The clutch will slip upon sensing an obstruction during the open or close cycle and gate will reverse direction.
For this system to function correctly, the gate must be properly installed and work freely in both directions. A good set of roller
bearing hinges is essential for proper swing gate operation.
1. Be sure AC power switch is turned OFF whenever adjustments to the clutch are being made. Loosen the upper jamb nut to
“un-lock” the lower jamb nut. Loosen the lower jamb nut.
2. Manually move the gate so that it is positioned approximately half way open.
3. Tighten the lower jamb nut finger tight then tighten it ONE turn with a wrench. Re-tighten the upper jamb nut.
4. Turn AC power switch ON and momentarily jump across terminals 11 and 20. When the gate begins to open, determine if the
clutch is slipping. If the clutch is slipping, turn AC power OFF and tighten the lower jamb nut one more turn. This process may
have to be repeated several times to get the clutch adjusted correctly. Always start the gate from the half open position when
adjusting the clutch.
Jamb Nuts
Test the Clutch: Obstruct the gate while it is in the OPENING cycle.
The clutch should slip with no more than 40 Lbs of force for approximately 2 seconds,
then the gate should reverse direction. If the clutch does not slip, it is too tight. Repeat
step 4 and re-adjust the clutch. Note: After the gate has reversed, the operator will be in a
“soft shutdown” making it necessary to initiate the cycle again by momentarily jumping
across terminals 11 and 20.
Obstruct the gate while it is in the CLOSING cycle.
The clutch should slip with no more than 40 Lbs of force for approximately
2 seconds, then the gate should reverse direction. If the clutch does not slip,
it is too tight. Repeat step 4 and re-adjust the clutch. Note: After the gate has
reversed, the operator will be in a “soft shutdown” making it necessary to
initiate the cycle again by momentarily jumping across terminals 11 and 20.
Note: The ideal clutch adjustment will allow the operator to move the gate
through its entire travel cycle without slipping, but will slip upon contact with an
obstruction with no more than 40 Lbs of force. This force can be measured with
a gate scale, DoorKing P/N 2600-225.
Clutch
3.6 Secondary Entrapment Protection System
In addition to the mechanical slip clutch, this operator uses an inherent entrapment sensing system (Type A) to further reduce
the possibility of injury should an entrapment occur. The secondary system (Revering sensor) is completely automatic and will
be activated if the clutch fails to slip when an obstruction is sensed during the open or close cycle. This feature requires no
adjustment by the installer or end user.

SECTION 4 - OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING - To reduce the risk of injury or death:
1. READ AND FOLLOW ALL INSTRUCTIONS.
2. Never let children operate or play with gate controls. Keep the remote control away from children.
3. Always keep people and objects away from gate. NO ONE SHOULD CROSS THE PATH OF THE MOVING GATE.
4. Test the operator monthly. The gate MUST reverse on contact with a rigid object or stop or reverse when an object
activates the non-contact sensors. After adjusting the force or the limit of travel, retest the gate operator. Failure to
adjust and retest the gate operator properly can increase the risk of injury or death.
5. Use the emergency release only when the gate is not moving and power has been shut-off.
6. KEEP GATES PROPERLY MAINTAINED. Read the owner's manual. Have a qualified service person make repairs to gate
hardware.
7. The entrance is for vehicles only. Pedestrians must use separate entrance.

4.2 Shutdown Conditions
Under various entrapment conditions the operator will assume either a soft or hard (alarm) shutdown. To determine what
type of reset action is required, you will need to understand how the different entrapment conditions affect the gate
operator.
Soft Shutdown
This occurs in various situations where the inherent or secondary entrapment protection devices have been activated.
In a soft shutdown condition, the operator will not respond to any input that was present when the entrapment
protection device sensed an obstruction. If the gate stops at the open position, the operator will not respond to the
automatic close timer.
• Example 1 - A time clock keys the gate open in the morning and an entrapment protection device senses
an obstruction prior to the gate reaching the full open position. If the entrapment is sensed by the inherent
system, the gate will reverse and run back to the closed position. The time clock input is still present, but
the gate will not re-open.
Note: In some systems, the time clock input comes from the telephone entry system relay. This same relay may also
provide open commands for a card reader, MicroPLUS transmitters and the visitor telephone entry. If so, these devices
will also be disabled in a soft shutdown condition.
• Example 2 - If the gate is closing and an entrapment protection device is activated, the gate will either stop
or reverse and run back to the open position, depending upon if the secondary or inherent device was
activated. The automatic close timer will not close the gate.
• Example 3 - Vehicle arrives at open loop and gate runs towards the open position. The inherent entrapment
protection is activated. The gate reverses and runs back to the closed position. If the vehicle is still present
at the open loop a soft shutdown condition does not occur. The loop input provides an immediate reset of
the operator and the gate will again run to the open position.
Resetting a Soft Shutdown
In some conditions, a soft shutdown will reset as soon as the entrapment condition clears. For example, if a
non-contact sensor (photo cell) is sensing an obstruction, the operator will stop the gate and assume a soft
shutdown condition. When the photocell clears, the operator will return to normal operation.
When the operator is in a soft shutdown, activation of any "intended input" will reset the operator. An "intended
input" includes any command, any standard safety input and any loop input. Activating any of these inputs will reset
the gate. At that point the gate will return to normal operation. If the gate is open, the automatic close timer will
then time out and close the gate.
Hard Shutdown
A hard shutdown condition occurs when the inherent entrapment protection system has sensed two consecutive
obstructions before the gate reaches the full open or closed position.
• Example - The gate is closing and the inherent entrapment protection system senses an obstruction and
causes the gate to reverse direction. As the gate begins to run in the open direction, a second obstruction
is sensed prior to the gate reaching the full open position. Once the second obstruction has been sensed,
the operator will stop, the audio alarm will be activated and all standard inputs are shut down (including
open commands, safety commands, loop inputs, etc.).
Note: The audio alarm will remain activated for a maximum of five minutes, or until the operator receives a reset input.
The hard shutdown condition will remain in affect even if the audio alarm shuts off after five minutes.
• After 5 minutes, the audio alarm will “chirp” every 5 seconds. This indicates that the operator is in a hard
shutdown condition and the reset switch must be activated to reset the operator and silence the alarm.
Continued on next page
6300-065-K-9-08
27
Resetting a Hard Shutdown
When the operator is in a hard shutdown condition (audio alarm activated or audio alarm “chirps” every 5 seconds),
the only way to reset the gate operator and return it to normal operation is to activate the alarm reset input
(auxiliary terminals 2 and 3). An alarm-reset switch can be mounted external of the gate operator provided that it is
installed in the line of sight of the gate and gate operator.
• Before resetting a hard shutdown, determine why the shutdown occurred. Inspect the gate for any
obstructions along its path that could have activated the inherent entrapment sensing system. Inspect
the gate and gate hardware.
Note: DoorKing operators have a built-in alarm reset push button mounted on the operator above the power ON-OFF
toggle switch. Activating this button will return the gate operator to normal operation, but will not activate the gate
operator.
Once the gate has been reset, an open or close command is needed to start the gate operator. Most activating
commands will cause the gate operator to cycle to the open position. This includes activation of a key switch or
open command and activation of an open loop. Activation of a close command will run the gate to the closed
position.
Note: The gate operator will not lose its limit settings when a hard shutdown occurs.
4.3 Manual Gate Operation
This operator is equipped with a manual release system that will allow the gate to be pushed open in the event of a power
outage or equipment failure.
Never attempt to manually push open any gate with an operator attached to it until you have verified that power to the
operator has been shut-off.
Emergency Vehicle Access Conditions
The automatic vehicular gate system must be designed to allow access to emergency vehicles under different operating
conditions.
1. During normal powered operation, emergency vehicles access the gate by use of the emergency vehicle
access device installed on your gate system. The type of device that is used in your community is dependent
on your city codes. These devices may include (but are not limited to) Fire Department lock boxes, Click-2Enter radio receivers, strobe light sensors, siren sensors, etc.
2. In the event of a power failure, the emergency vehicle access device may not be functional because the
gate operator is un-powered. If the gate operator is equipped with a convenience open system, this system
will automatically open the gate when primary (AC) power is removed. NOTE: DC convenience open systems
are optional and your gate system may or may not be equipped with one. Check with your installer to
determine if your gate system is equipped with a convenience open system.
3. In the event of a primary (AC) power failure and a back-up system (DC) power failure (low charged or
dead batteries for example), the system must have a release system to allow the gate to be manually
operated. The release device must be accessible from either side of the gate and must be present so that
emergency personnel can gain access through the gate under this condition.
28
6300-065-K-9-08
Fail-Safe Manual Operation
The FAIL-SAFE manual operation system is the most reliable and safest method for placing an automated gate in
manual operation and is the preferred method of emergency gate operation under worse case conditions by many Fire
Chiefs and Building Inspectors and is typically used in CLASS I and CLASS II applications. This system requires no
keys, cranks or tools for manual gate operation and is completely automatic. This prevents any delays for emergency
vehicle access in the event that a power outage has occurred.
• When AC power is removed (power failure or switch power off), the operator "FAILS" in a "SAFE" condition
allowing the gate to be manually pushed open without the need of any tools, keys, cranks or other devices.
This assures emergency vehicle access under the worst-case conditions.
• For manual fail-safe gate operation, turn power to the operator OFF. If a backup power system is in
use, be sure that this power is turned OFF also. Once power is OFF, the gate can be manually operated.
1. Pull the gate crank arm (arm that is attached to the operator shaft) away from
the gate so the arms are not in a straight line.
2. Go to the end of the gate and pull it open.
Note: If an attempt is made to
force the gate open under normal
operating conditions (AC power
present), a tamper protect circuit
will detect the forced entry and
will start the motor to return the
gate to the closed position. If
Gate Tracker reporting is in use, a
forced entry attempt transaction
will be sent to the DoorKing
access control system at this
time.

SECTION 5 - OPTIONAL CONVENIENCE OPEN ADJUSTMENTS
The optional convenience open system installed in your vehicular gate operator is designed as a convenience enhancement only.
It is not designed or intended to provide continuous gate operation during a power outage. Its sole purpose is to provide a
method to open the vehicular gate to allow unimpeded traffic flow when the gate and access control system is without power. If
your access control system requires 100% power backup and continuous operation when primary (AC) power has failed, a
power inverter / backup system, such as DoorKing’s Model 2000, is required.
• The convenience open system cannot provide continuous gate operation during a power outage.
• The gate will cycle (Manual or Automatic Mode) to the open position ONE TIME ONLY after
AC power failure.
• The convenience open system requires testing on a monthly basis to insure the batteries are fully charged and that the
system is operational.
• The convenience open system uses two 12-volt, 3.0 amp-hour gel-cell batteries. These batteries should be replaced
every two years on average, or sooner if required.
• Batteries are affected by temperature. Cold temperatures will reduce the effectiveness of the batteries. High temperatures
will result in a shortened battery life.
• Batteries are not covered under warranty.
5.1 Circuit Board (2340) Setup
Timer: MUST be adjusted so the gate stops approximately six inches from the full open position. Clockwise increases the
DC motor run time, counter-clockwise decreases the run time. Do not allow the DC motor to run long enough to slip the
operator clutch or stall the DC motor. Damage to the circuit board may result from this condition!

The system will NOT automatically open the gate after loss of
AC power. A manual input is needed (Remote, push button or a
key switch) to open the gate from one of the “Manual Mode
Devices” physically wired to the 2340 circuit board (The timer will run the
DC motor). Any control devices wired to the 4502 main terminal will NOT
function after loss of AC power.
Note: If the gate operator is controlled by a DoorKing access controller
(Models 1833, 1835, 1837 or 1838), the “Manual Mode” will NOT function
during a power outage.
Restart Options once AC Power is restored,
Switch 3
Once AC power is restored, the system’s control board can be
set to “automatically re-key” the gate operator (switch 3 ON)
to establish normal operation, or can be set to require a
“manual input” from the 2340 OR 4502 circuit board (switch
3 OFF) before the operator resumes normal operation.

SECTION 6 - MAINTENANCE AND TROUBLESHOOTING
Inspection and service of this gate operator by a qualified technician should be performed anytime a malfunction is observed or
suspected. High cycle usage may require more frequent service checks.
6.1 Maintenance
When servicing the gate operator, always check any secondary (external) reversing devices (loops, photo eyes, etc.) for proper
operation. If external reversing devices cannot be made operable, do not place this operator in service until the malfunction can
be identified and corrected.
Always check the inherent reversing system when performing any maintenance. If the inherent reversing system cannot be
made operable, remove this operator from service until the cause of the malfunction is identified and corrected. Keeping
this operator in service when the inherent reversing system is malfunctioning creates a hazard for persons which can result
in serious injury or death should they become entrapped in the gate.
When servicing this gate operator, always turn power OFF!!

6.2 Troubleshooting
Have a good VOM meter to check voltages and continuity. A Meg-Ohm meter capable of checking up to 500 meg-ohms of
resistance is necessary to properly check the integrity of the ground loops. When a malfunction occurs, isolate the problem to
one of three areas: 1) the operator, 2) the loop system, 3) the keying devices. Use caution when checking high voltage areas:
terminals 1 through 6, the motor capacitor and the motor.
1. Check the input indicator LEDs. They should only come ON when a keying device (card reader, push button, etc.) is
activated. If any of the input LEDs are ON continuously, this will cause the gate operator to hold open. Disconnect the
keying devices one at a time until the LED goes OFF.
2. Check any external secondary entrapment protection devices. Any short or malfunction in these devices can cause
the gate operator to stop or to hold open.
3. A malfunction in a loop or loop detector can cause the gate operator to hold open, or to not detect a vehicle when it is
present over the loop. The LEDs next to the loop detector ports on the operator circuit board will light only when the
loop has detected an object above it. If the LEDs stays on after the object has gone, then the loop detector has malfunctioned. Pull the loop detector circuit boards from the loop ports on the operator circuit board. If the malfunction
persists, the problem is not with the loop system. For more information on trouble shooting loops and loop detectors,
refer to your loop detector instruction sheet and to the DoorKing Loop and Loop Detector Information Manual.
4. Check to be sure that there are no shorted or open control wires from the keying devices to the gate operator. If a
keying device fails to open the gate, momentarily jumper across terminals 11 and 20 on the gate operator circuit board.
If the gate operator starts, this indicates that a problem exist with the keying device and is not with the gate operator.
5. If a three-button control station (open-close-stop) is connected to this gate operator, check for proper wiring. Only a
DoorKing three button control station (P/N 1200-006) can be used with this gate operator. Others will cause a malfunction.
6. Check the high voltage supply. A voltage drop on the supply line (usually caused by using too small supply voltage
wires) will cause the operator to malfunction. Refer to the wire size chart in section 2.1.
Symptom
Possible Solution(s)
Operator will not run. • Check that power to the operator is turned ON.
Power LED is OFF.
• Transformer may be overheated. Turn power off and allow board to cool for several minutes then
retest. Check for low 115 VAC power and low voltage shorts.
• Check for 115 VAC at terminals 2 and 3. If voltage measures OK, check the terminal strip or
replace the circuit board.

• Remove circuit board. With power ON, momentarily jumper terminal 3 to terminal 4 with a
14 AWG insulated jumper wire. CAUTION – HIGH VOLTAGE. The motor should run.
• With power ON, momentarily jumper terminal 3 to terminal 5 with a 14 AWG insulated jumper wire.
CAUTION – HIGH VOLTAGE. The motor should run in the opposite direction of the above step.
• If the motor runs in both steps above, replace the control board. If the motor does not run,
or runs in only one direction, problem can be a bad motor, motor capacitor, wire connections
from the control board to the motor or a bad control board.
Secondary operator
motor will not run.
• Check that SW-2, switch 2 is ON.
• Remove circuit board. Momentarily jumper terminal 3 to one of the secondary motor terminals,
then to the other secondary motor terminal with a 14 AWG insulated jumper wire.
CAUTION – HIGH VOLTAGE. The secondary motor should run one way, then the other way as
power is applied to each terminal.
• If the secondary motor runs in both directions, replace the control board. If secondary motor does
not run, or runs in only one direction, problem can be in the wiring from the primary to secondary
operator, bad secondary motor or motor capacitor.

Symptom
Possible Solution(s)
Gate opens a short
distance, then stops
and reverses.
• Check that the clutch is adjusted properly and is not slipping.
• Disconnect the gate from the gate operator and check that the gate swings freely without any
binding.
• Check the PULSE LED on the circuit board. PULSE 1 should blink as the primary (or single) operator
is running. PULSE 2 should blink as the secondary operator is running. If either PULSE LED is not
blinking as the respective operator is running, check that the magnetic sensor is within 1/32 inch of
the magnetic counter ring.
• Replace the magnetic sensor.
• Replace the circuit board.

• Check the input LEDs. Any ON will hold the gate open and indicates a problem with a keying device.
• Check the secondary safety devices. Any activated will hold the gate open and indicates a problem
with the safety device.
• Check the loop detectors. Any activated can hold the gate open and indicates a problem with the
loop detector or ground loop.
• Operator may be in a “soft shutdown.” Activate any keying device to determine if operator returns
to normal operation.
• If automatic close is desired, be sure SW-1, switch 4 is ON.
• Check motor as described on previous page.
• Operator may be in a “soft shutdown.” Check input LEDs on terminals 11-13. If any are ON,
momentarily disconnect, then re-connect the wire going to the respective terminal. Operator should
open.
• Check to be sure that the operator is running in the proper direction. Turn power OFF, and then back
ON. Activate a keying device. Operator should run in the open direction. If operator runs in the
close direction, turn power OFF and change direction switch SW-2, switches 1 and/or 2. Go to
above section if operator now opens but will not close.
• Be sure that the respective LED on the control board lights when the keying device connected to the
respective terminal is activated. If LED does not light, momentarily place a jumper wire from
terminal 20 to the input terminal being checked. If LED lights and gate opens, problem is with the
keying device. If LED does not light, replace control board.
• Check motor as described on previous page.

If a shadow loop is used, check for proper wiring. A mis-wired shadow loop detector will cause the
gate to reverse.
Check the PULSE LED on the circuit board. PULSE 1 should blink as the primary (or single) operator
is running. PULSE 2 should blink as the secondary operator is running. If either PULSE LED is not
