Setting the open and closed positions on the motor
If you come across a motor with LL on the display this generally means that the motor hasn't done and initial travel set-up. This could be due to having no power on-site at time of installation or the circuit board has lost the settings.
Make sure the door is engaged into the motor.
Press the green confirm button once and the door should start to close. This initial close cycle will press hard into the ground and then open to the full opening height. It will then travel down into the closed position with a soft finish.
Once the door has finished the LL on the display should go out, which means the travel limits have been set.
NOTE: If you have had to put more tension on a door after its initial installation, you will need to reset the motor so it can re-learn the weight of the door again. You can do this by opening the door half way with the motor and once you have the door in this position you will need to press and hold the red learn button until LL appears on the display. Once LL appears, release the red learn button and then press the green confirm button and let the door go through its set up. Once finished setting up the door is ready to be used as normal.
E9 on the display stands for a hall sensor fault. This means replace the circuit board / replace fuse. SERVICE REQUIRED.
E5 / E6 on the display means that the door is not balanced correctly. It either has too much tension or not enough tension. SERVICE REQUIRED.
