QUICK GUIDE: DIP-Switches
See page 17 for more information about DIP-switches.
The two DIP-switches located on the circuit board are used to program the operator to operate in various modes and to turn on
or off various operating features. Whenever a switch setting is changed, power to the operator must be turned OFF and then
turned back on for the new setting to take affect. Check and review ALL switch settings prior to applying power to the operator.

ASTM F2200 Standard for 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; [email protected]; 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 6 feet (1.83 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 six feet (6’) 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.
• 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).
• Be sure you have instructed the owner of the gate operator about safe and proper operation and testing of the gate operator.

9510-065-W-5-18
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 people 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 on proper and safe operation of this gate operating system and about the basic functions of the required
reversing systems associated with your gate operating system and how to test them (see section 8). 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 6 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.
Opening device MUST be mounted a
minimum of 6 feet from the gate and
NOT accessible through the gate!
• 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.

1.7 Installation of Warning Signs
This DoorKing Slide 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. See page 3 for typical placement of signs.
• 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.

9510-065-W-5-18
SECTION 2 - AC POWER TO OPERATOR(S)
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!!

IMPORTANT: Ground wire shown without safety protection for clarity. Make sure ground wire is protected from being touched or electrical
shock could occur!
2.1 High Voltage Wire Runs
The 9500 draws significant power and each operator should have a “Dedicated” circuit breaker at 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 the NEC recommended maximum 3% voltage drop on the power line, plus an
additional 10% reduction in distance to allow for other losses in the system.
Never run low voltage rated wire insulation in the same conduit as high voltage rated wire insulation.
This table illustrates the high voltage AC power wire size and distance limitations for a single operator.

2.2 High Voltage Terminal Connection
• Route incoming AC power wire through the high voltage conduit and run wire in the operator electronic box as shown.
• Be sure wiring is installed in accordance with local codes. Be sure to color code all wiring.
• It is recommended that a surge suppressor be installed on the high voltage power lines to help protect the operator
and circuit board from surges and power fluctuations.
• Dual operators (Primary/Secondary) require AC power to EACH operator.

The two DIP-switches located on the circuit board (Upside-Down )are used to program the operator to operate in various modes
and to turn on or off various operating features. Whenever a switch setting is changed, power to the operator must be turned
OFF and then turned back on for the new setting to take affect. Check and review ALL switch settings prior to applying power to
the operator.
Switch Definitions
Typical Settings
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
SW 1 - Right 8 Switches
SW 1 is Upside-Down on Circuit Board.
ON
Switch 1 Motor direction switch - Must OPEN the gate upon initial AC power up and open command. If the open command
begins to close the gate, turn AC power off and reverse this switch.
Switch 2 Turns the auto-close timer on or off. Can be adjusted from 1 to 23 seconds to close gate.
Switch 3 A device wired to terminal #4 (Switch 3 ON) is a normal full open input. The output wired to terminal #4 (Switch 3
OFF) becomes the output of a plug-in loop detector that is installed in the EXIT loop port of the circuit board (Which must be
installed for the “OFF” setting to function). A jumper wire is needed to open and close gate(s). Terminal #4 jumpered to #5 is
used for partially opening an automatic exit loop using a single channel plug-in loop detector for a single gate operator (Page
24) OR terminal #4 jumpered to #2 will fully open bi-parting gates using a dual channel plug-in loop detector (Page 28).
Switches 4-5 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. If a magnetic lock is used with the gate operator, these switches must be set for magnetic
lock operation which limits the relay to activate only when the gate is opening and full open.
Switch 6 Warn Before Operate, When set to the ON position, the internal alarm in the operator will start sounding 2-3 seconds
prior to the gate starting and continue throughout the gate’s cycle.
Switch 7 Determines if an input to terminal #6 (Photo Sensors) AND/OR reverse loops will reverse OR stop a CLOSING gate.
A tailgating vehicle can activate terminal #6 (Photo sensors) and/or reverse loops while the gate is in the closing cycle from the
previous vehicle’s authorized entry:
If switch 7 is turned OFF (Reverse), the closing gate that gets activated by a tailgating vehicle will reverse back to the open
position, possibly allowing the tailgating vehicle unauthorized entry while the gate is reversing back to the open position.
If switch 7 is turned ON (Stop), the closing gate that gets activated by a tailgating vehicle will stop, partially or completely
blocking the pathway, NOT allowing the tailgating vehicle to enter without proper authorization. The gate will not move until all
sensors are clear, usually forcing the tailgating vehicle that activated the sensors to back away from the gate. The gate will then
continue until closed, helping prevent the tailgating vehicle from unauthorized entry.
Switch 8 Turning the quick-close feature on will cause the auto close timer to close the gate after 1 second, regardless of the
setting of the auto close timer potentiometer. This will also cause an opening gate to stop and reverse when the reverse loops
and/or photo sensors are cleared. This feature, along with turning switch 7 ON above, is useful to help prevent tailgating
vehicles from unauthorized entry.

Check the polarity: Position the gate half way open. Give open command
and while gate is opening, activate the appropriate limit switch with your
finger. Gate should STOP. If it does not, activate the other limit switch. If
this STOPS the gate, AC power wires must be changed (Reverse the
connection of any 2 wires and re-check limits).
3.3 Limit Switches
Adjust Limit Nuts
Important: Turn power OFF and set AC module to
maximum speed before adjusting limit nuts!
1
Push and hold the lock plate down where shown to adjust the
Open and Close limit nuts.
2
After adjusting the limit nuts, be sure that the lock-plate is
engaged in the slots on the limit nuts to prevent them from
rotating.
3
The slow-down limit assembly will move up or down 3/4 inch.
DO NOT remove the slow-down limit assembly from the 3/4
inch slot and re-attach it in the partial open adjustment rail to
gain further adjustment. This will cause mechanical damage
to the switch assembly when the operator is activated.

3.4 Inherent Reverse Sensors Adjustment
This vehicular gate operator is equipped with an inherent adjustable reversing sensor (Type A) used as entrapment protection
according to UL 325 standards. The gate will reverse direction after “physically” encountering an obstruction in either the
opening or closing gate cycle.
If the Auto-Close Timer (DIP-switch SW 1, switch 2) is ON and the gate physically encounters an obstruction during the
CLOSING cycle, it will reverse to the open position and HOLD the gate at this position (Soft shutdown condition). Another input
command is needed before the gate will reset and close again.
If the Partial Open Feature is being used and the gate physically encounters an obstruction during the CLOSING cycle, the gate
will only reverse to the FULL open limit switch setting and NOT the partial open setting.
For the reverse system to function correctly, the gate must be properly installed and work freely in both directions and the limit
switches must be properly adjusted before adjusting these sensors. The ideal adjustment will allow the operator to move the
gate through its entire travel cycle without reversing, but will reverse upon contact with an obstruction with no more than 40
Lbs of force. This force can be measured with a gate scale.

CLOSE
LED lights up and the gate reverses direction. Rotate the CLOSE reverse sensor back counterclockwise approximately 1/8 turn to decrease the sensitivity (LED will turn off). The gate will
assume a soft shutdown and the OPEN button will need to be pressed to cycle the operator.
5
Cycle the gate a few times to be sure that it cycles completely. The current sensor may
need to be adjusted (9530 - 208/230 VAC models only) if gate will not reverse properly
(See 3.5 below)
Reverse Sensors
1 Press the OPEN button on the 3-push button to open the gate. OPEN
2 After opening gate reaches full speed, slowly rotate the OPEN reverse sensor clockwise until the
LED
Note: Each operator must be
individually adjusted if dual
operators have been installed.
Test the operator reversing sensitivity:
Place an immobile object along the gate path, allowing the gate to strike it while in the open and close cycles. The gate must
reverse direction after striking the object. If it does not, increase the OPEN and CLOSE reverse sensitivity (steps 2 and 4 )
and repeat this testing until the correct sensitivity has been achieved in BOTH directions. The operator will assume a soft
shutdown after striking and reversing the gate which will require a OPEN or CLOSE button command to cycle operator again.
3.5 9530 - 208/230 VAC Current Sensor Adjustment
The 9530 - 208 and 230 VAC gate operators use a current sensing device to detect any obstructions in the path of the opening
or closing gate. The current sensor uses a sensing coil with a given number of turns through it to monitor the current flow into
the operator. Each time the wire passes through the coil, it is considered a turn. The number of turns through the sensing coil is
dependant on the operating voltage of the operator, the speed of the gate and the weight of the gate.
In general, light weight gates may require additional turns of wire through the current sensor, while heavier gates may require
less turns. In addition, the speed of the gate can affect how the current sensor works. Gates running at a higher speed may
require less turns of wire through the sensor. CAUTION – HIGH VOLTAGE: Be sure power is turned OFF before changing the
number of wire turns to the current sensor. If you are setting the reverse sensors (section 3.4 above) and reach the full sensitive
position without activating the reversing function, add an additional turn of wire through the current sensor. If you are decreasing the sensitivity and the gate will not run properly, reduce the number of turns through the current sensor.

SECTION 4 - ENTRAPMENT AND SAFETY PROTECTION
External Entrapment Protection Devices:
In addition to the inherent reversing sensor system, this operator has a UL 325 terminal for the connection of photo sensors-Type B1 and/or
reversing edges-Type B2 entrapment protection required by UL 325 standards. Entrapment Protection must be provided for the gate system
where the risk of entrapment or obstruction exists. The operator will not run without one or more monitored type B1 or B2 entrapment
protection devices. Install these devices where the risk of entrapment or a safety hazard exists, examples of which are shown below and the
next 2 pages. Specific installations will vary.

4.3 Loop Detector Wiring
To help protect the operator from accidentally closing on vehicles in the gate’s path, DoorKing highly recommends that loops
and loop detectors be installed. Loops are laid underneath, cut into asphalt or concrete driveways or buried beneath gravel and
earth driveways. A loop detection system will sense a vehicle like a metal detector and send a signal to the gate operator
preventing the gate from automatically opening or closing on a vehicle when it is in the gate’s path. DoorKing recommends that
a licensed installer perform this work.
DoorKing offers a free “Loop and Loop-Detectors
Information Manual” PDF located at Doorking’s
web site for more information. www.doorking.com
Reverse Loops
Reverse loops are placed on each side of the gate to
prevent the gate from closing on a vehicle in the gate’s
path. They will stop or reverse the cycling of the gate
while a vehicle is in or near the gate’s pathway.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
This vehicular gate operator is designed for Class III and Class IV applications only. All users of this gate operating
system MUST be trained on the proper and safe operation of the system and must made aware of all hazards that
may be associated with the system.
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.

6.2 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 external 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 external or inherent device was activated. The automatic
close timer will not close the gate.
• Example 3 - Vehicle arrives at exit loop and gate runs towards the open position. If the inherent entrapment protection
gets activated during this opening cycle, the gate reverses and runs back to the closed position. After the inherent
entrapment protection is cleared, If the vehicle is still present at the exit loop, a soft shutdown condition does not
occur. The exit 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 (Alarm Activated)
A hard shutdown condition occurs when: (1.) The inherent entrapment protection system (Type A) gets activated TWO
consecutive times before the gate completes the open or close cycle. (2.) The reversing edge (Type B2) gets activated
and reverses but before the gate completes the reverse cycle the inherent entrapment protection system (Type A) gets
activated.
• Example of a Hard Shutdown - 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
sound and all standard inputs are shut down (including open commands, safety commands, loop inputs, etc.).
– To silence the alarm, press the reset button or after 5 minutes, the audio alarm will shut off but will “chirp” every 5
seconds. This indicates that the operator is in a hard shutdown condition (The reset button must be pressed to reset the
operator and stop the alarm “chirping”).
Resetting a Hard Shutdown
The operator is in a hard shutdown condition when the audio alarm is sounding OR “chirping” every 5 seconds.
• 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.
The audio alarm will sound for five minutes, or until the operator’s reset button is pushed. After (5) five minutes the
alarm will “chirp every 5 sec.” and the hard shutdown condition will remain in affect until the reset button is pushed.
Once the operator 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 automatic exit loop. Activation of a close command will run the gate to the closed position.
Note: DoorKing operators have a built-in alarm reset push button mounted on the operator (See previous page for reset button location).
Activating this button will return the gate operator to normal operation, but will not cycle the gate operator. A remote alarm/reset station
(P/N 1404-080) can be mounted external of the gate operator provided that it is installed in the line-of-sight of the gate and gate operator.

SECTION 7 - 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.
7.1 Maintenance
When servicing the gate operator, always check any secondary (external) reversing devices (loops, photocells, 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!!
If gearbox requires oil, use only Mobil SHC-629 Synthetic Gear Oil. Do not completely fill gearbox with oil. Gearbox
should be half full only. Do not exceed this level.

7.2 Built-In Diagnostic Tests
This gate operator is designed with built-in diagnostics that will alert you to potential or existing problems that the microprocessor has detected. Specific fault conditions are checked and the operator will signal that a fault exist through the built-in alarm.
Constant alarm is heard when power is applied: This indicates that the limit switch wire harness is not
connected to the circuit board. In this condition, the operator will not run and the tone will continue until the fault is
corrected. Check to be sure that the limit switch plug is properly inserted into the limit switch plug on the circuit
board.
Constant alarm is heard: This indicates that the operator is in a hard shutdown condition (section 6.1 and 6.2
on pages 29 and 30). The tone will continue to sound for five minutes, and then will beep once every five seconds.
The operator-reset button must be pressed or power must be removed and then reapplied to return the operator to
normal operation.
Short “chirp” is heard every five seconds: This indicates that the operator has been in a hard shutdown
condition in excess of five minutes. This will continue until the operator-reset button is pressed or until power is
removed from the operator (section 6.1 and 6.2 on pages 29 and 30).
Operator runs for 1 second and stops, two short “chirps” are heard: This indicates that there may be
a fault with the current sensor circuit.
7.3 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
terminals, 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 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. 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 located on DoorKing’s
web site.
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, press the Key Switch or momentarily jumper across terminals 1 and 5 on the 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 or 007) 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 on page 13.

Symptom
Operator will not run.
Power LED is OFF.
• Check that AC power to the operator is turned ON.
• Transformer may be overheated. Turn power off and allow board to cool for several minutes then retest. Check for low VAC
power and low voltage shorts.
• Check for VAC at high voltage input terminal. If voltage measures 0, check the incoming power wires or replace circuit board.
Operator will not run.
Power LED is ON.
• Insure that a minimum of one (1) entrapment protection device is connected and the input it is connected to is enabled
(UL 325 DIP-switch is ON).
• If a photocell is used as a external entrapment prevention device, check to be sure that the beam is not blocked.
• Be sure that the chain is not too tight. A too tight chain may cause the operator to stall.
• Bypass circuit board and Check Motor: Turn power switch OFF and remove the circuit board. Place a jumper wire from
terminal #18 to #17. CAUTION – HIGH VOLTAGE. Turn the power switch ON. The motor should run. Turn the power switch
OFF and remove the jumper. With power switch still OFF, place a jumper wire from terminal #18 to #16. CAUTION – HIGH
VOLTAGE. Turn the power switch ON. The motor should run in the opposite direction. Turn the power switch OFF and
remove the jumper.
• 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, motor resistors, wire connections from the control board to the motor or a
bad control board.

Possible Solution(s)
•
•
•
•
•
•
Check the input LEDs. Any ON will hold the gate open and indicates a problem with a keying device.
Check the external 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 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 2 is ON and set timer open from 1-23 seconds.
Bypass circuit board and check motor as above.
• Operator may be in a “soft shutdown.” Check input LEDs. 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 1, switch 1. Go to above section if operator now opens but will not close.
• Be sure that the each LED on the control board lights when the keying device connected to the that terminal is activated. If
LED does not light, momentarily place a jumper wire from terminal 1 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.
• Bypass circuit board and check motor as described above.
Gate starts to close, then
reverses to open.
•
•
•
•
Re-adjust the reverse sensitivity.
Disconnect the gate from the gate operator and check that the gate slides freely without any binding.
Check the loop detector LEDs and input LEDs. Any that flash ON will cause the gate to reverse.
Continue troubleshooting.
Gate closes then
re-opens.
• Check for any input or loop detector LED’s that are ON.
• Check that the operator is running in the proper direction (see “gate closes but will not open”).
Alarm is sounding.
Operator will not run.
• Operator is in a “hard shutdown” condition. Reset button must be pushed to return operator to normal operation, see Section
6.2 Shutdown Conditions, page 30.
• Check the gate and gate hardware for any binding, correct where necessary.
• Gate may be too heavy.
Alarm chirps once every
5 seconds. Operator will
not run.
• Operator has been in a “hard shutdown” condition in excess of 5 minutes. Reset button must be
pushed to return operator to normal operation, see Section 6.2 Shutdown Conditions, page 30.
Alarm sounds when
power is applied and
operator will not run.
• The limit switch wire harness is not plugged into the circuit board. Check that the limit switch connector is properly plugged
into the limit switch plug on the circuit board.
Operator runs for 1
second and stops, two
short chirps are heard.
• There may be a problem with the current sensor on the circuit board. Replace the circuit board.
Operator has intermittent
functionality problems
that vary.
• The main terminal #3 250 mA power has been exceeded. Check total amp draw of connected device(s).

8.3 Gate Operator’s Monthly Checkup
Caution:
Make SURE gate area is clear BEFORE testing the gate operator!
DO NOT repair or adjust gate systems yourself. Contact a trained gate systems technician with any questions
or to make any repairs or adjustments. If you feel uncomfortable performing any of these inspections or testing,
a qualified service technician will perform the visual inspections and testing for you.
You can find a trained service technician at DoorKing’s “Dealer Locator” at www.doorking.com
Visual Inspection
Visually inspect the rollers, fasteners, brackets and other gate hardware for proper alignment, proper tightness, and signs of
damage, breakage, looseness, rust or wear. Moving parts should be lubricated and should not be squeaking.
Visually inspect wiring for fraying or exposure. If a malfunction is found, contact a trained service technician to make
adjustments or repairs.
Test Built-In Reversing Sensor
Begin with the gate in the fully OPEN position. Stand just outside the path of the gate and close the gate (typically auto-timer
will time-out and close gate automatically). As the gate is closing, firmly press a solid object against the end of the gate
frame in the direction opposing the travel of the gate. The gate should stop within 2 sec. and reverse to the OPEN position.
Another input command is needed before the gate will reset and close again. Repeat this test while opening the gate. Start
from the fully CLOSED position. While opening, gate should stop and reverse to the CLOSE position. If gate does NOT
respond like it should in either direction of gate travel, contact a trained service technician to make adjustments or repairs.
Test Photo Sensors
If the gate has a photo sensing device protecting the path of a closing gate, perform the following test. Begin with the gate in
the fully OPEN position. Stand just outside the path of the gate and close the gate (typically auto-timer will time-out and close
gate automatically). Pass an object across the path of the closing photo sensing beam. The gate should stop within 2 sec.
and reverse to the OPEN position. Typically the auto-timer times out and gate closes again.
If the gate has a photo sensing device protecting the path of a opening gate, start from the fully CLOSED position. OPEN
gate. Pass an object across the path of the opening photo sensing beam. The gate should stop, the gate will resume opening
when the beam is clear. If gate does NOT respond like it should in either direction of gate travel, contact a trained service
technician to make adjustments or repairs.
Test Reversing Edges
If the gate has a reversing edge(s) protecting the path of a closing gate, perform the following test. Begin with the gate in the
fully OPEN position. Stand just outside the path of the gate and close the gate. As the gate is closing, firmly press a solid
object against the reversing edge in the direction opposing the travel of the gate. The gate should stop within 2 sec. and
reverse to the OPEN position (typically auto-timer will time-out and close gate automatically). If the gate encounters another
obstruction before it is closed, the gate will stop and reverse to the OPEN position again. A input command is needed before
the gate will reset and close again, auto-timer will NOT close gate (Typically, press your remote button for input command).
If the gate has a reversing edge(s) protecting the path of a opening gate, starting from the fully CLOSED position.
Stand just outside the path of the gate and open the gate. OPEN gate. As the gate is opening, firmly press a solid object
against the reversing edge in the direction opposing the travel of the gate. gate should stop and reverse to the CLOSE
position. If gate does NOT respond like it should in either direction of gate travel, contact a trained service technician to make
adjustments or repairs.
Note: This gate operator uses high levels of force to move the gate and most people underestimate the power of these
systems and do not realize the potential hazards associated with this system if NOT maintained properly.
Scheduled maintenance visits are offered by most qualified service technicians to MAINTAIN your gate operator system.
