Question regarding Apollo operator not closing gate in weather below 45 degrees

apollo-635-250

Question: Tom has a small problem… I have an Apollo Gate Opener, with control board (model 635) which was installed a little over a year ago. The controller will not close the gate when the air temperature drops below 45 degrees. Please advise what I need to do to correct this problem?

Answer: It sounds as if one of your peripherals (photo cells, receiver, or other safety device) is acting up in the cold weather. Check that all photocells are clean and clear of moisture in the lens, other than that if you have a loop or any other device you may want to look at or even take a photo of your control board so we can determine which input is holding it open by the LED’s that are lit on your board.
