My Letron autogate is faulty and need to be repaired/serviced. The right side gate wouldn't open.

Would anyone know where I can get a reliable service support?

Kindly recommend someone who does a good awning installation job and charges reasonably.

Thanks to all who sms-ed or pm-ed and left message here. I contacted an autogate repair person and got my autogate motor sent for repair. Seems like the compartment was filled with water and that may be the reason for the fault.

Does anyone have the same problem? The repair guy said I can seal off the screw areas by welding to prevent it from being filled with rain water in future. However, it will be difficult to reopen the compartment to remove motor if there's any failure.

RUBBISH RECOMMENDATION! There's a neoprene gasket below the top flange which must be renewed and water seeps in somehow at the arm column area due to wear n tear over the years. The DC motor use carbon brushes that wear out resulting in a motor that doesn't move is another problem that crops up in good time. Its unavoidable as long as its a DC motor is implemented. Better to tell that mechanic to weld all the bolts in his engine rocker cover so oil won't seep out. A complete overhaul will cost dearly (few hundred bucks everytime). You overhaul or repair one unit, the other one will die in time. Change to some other model thats not embedded in the ground.

See even Sagamihara yen to see you back within minutes! How can you resist by the silent majority who wants you back? :confused:

As much as I was told and led to believe - usj.com.my/ is funded and forums shared in the interest of the public and not by a handful Harley or Ferarri. Views are shared without fears or favors. Unless Jeff decided to sell it, which is unlikely or unethical as it public funds were solicited to run this forum to individual, I would be joining you to yell ow somewhere else. In fact, I just did that just recently by joining datacity.com which is basically in USA interest. ( they dont banana you and sumore members can award you with "reputation" credential sumore. :cool:

Better stop now, for I would be banana again for hijacking this thread from gate repair to forumer return please. :eek:

Anyway, many happy returns. :)

Hello bslee,

i understand that you have stopped being active on the forum, but i'm hoping that you still check your messages here.

from one of your earlier postings some years back, you mentioned that you change the carbon brush of the motor on you autogate yourself. can you please tell me where do you purchase these carbon brushes from? as i've been looking for them everywhere to replace the one on my dad's autogate as the service fellas insisted on replacing the whole motor all the time! i really hope i can do this soon as he keeps having to get out and manually open the gates and he's quite elderly already

would really appreciate your help. thank you

There are 2 shops selling all kind of carbon brushes at Jalan Loke Yew, I would recommend Valee Industrial Supplies (a.k.a Valee Carbon). Open Google map and search this coordination 3.133585,101.706778

My auto-gate is suffering from massive paint peel off. Had repainting done twice but they didn't last. Was told that paint could not stick due (apparently) to the pre-purchase anti-rust treatment. Anyone has a remedy for this/ recommended painter/ service personnel? Thanks in advance!

P.S. I bought the gate from a shop in Taipan.
