    The MyBB pay it forward thread

    I had my keyless chuck (on a brand new PSB650 I believe it was) replaced for a key chuck by BOSCH in JHB CBD a few years back for a few hundred R. I'm not 100% clear on what the problem is with the above unit, but hope this helps.

    Centurion gate motor troubleshooting

    +1 - they're extremely efficient and professional at Centurion. Also, check the voltage on the motor when the relay "clicks" - presumably it is 0 if the motor works when directly connected as per your test. That then points to a problem with the controller or a fuse.

    It sounds like the motor is not getting the power to engage. Try connecting the battery directly to the motor and see what happens.
