1 Answer


I assume the actuator you are speaking of is the electric actuator which is about the size of a cigarette pack. Check the manufacturer instructions. Some have to be installed with the gear all the way one way or the other with the door in a certain position. Some of the actuators only turn a certain amount when activated. If not installed correctly, the door will only move part way.
