As part of the ETL certification process the water tightness of our gate operators have been fully tested. When installed correctly the inner workings of the operator will be protected from the elements.
Even with this rigorous testing we have had a few reports of leaking covers on the CNX product line. The root cause has been traced to improperly installed covers. Please review the below information and insure your cover is correctly installed.
Per page 23 of the Programming and Operations Manual the back cover must be placed so that the tab is within the cover. See diagram below.
The hardware that holds the back cover on aids alignment and rigidity. All 10 of the screws on the back cover must be installed in the locations noted below.
For a SWINGSMARTCNX install the top cap shield by attaching it to the underside of the arm, per page 24 of the manual.
Align the hooks on the front cover with the hex head bolts and slide it into place.
Place the top cap on operator and install the hex head bolt to secure it.
