I am having trouble with my Elite CSW-200-UL gate on my driveway. It has randomly been responding to the remotes and then I had to punch in the code to make it work. Now it is not responding.
The first place to look is your receiver. This is the device, often separate from the actual gate operator, that responds to your transmitter. Stand next to the gate operator and you should hear a small click coming from the receiver when you or someone else pushes the button.
You can sometimes find the receiver by following the antenna cable back to it. If it does not have an external antenna, look inside the operator box for either an antenna screwed into the receiver or a wire hanging from a plastic box.
If you hear the click and the gate does not open, the possibilities grow exponentially so we won't try to address every possibility here. If you hear a click when you are close, but not when the transmitter is triggered at a distance, check the antenna.
If you don't hear the click, then either the remote has lost programming (this often happens with rolling codes transmitters when they are not used for a long time), or the receiver is not working.
Check to make sure the receiver is getting plenty of power power using a meter. It should read at the recommended voltage or a bit higher. Usually around 24 volts but some receivers can work down to 12 volts. If it gets plenty of power and the remotes have been programmed back in, consider replacing the receiver.
