Hi everyone I just restored my AFM and when I turned it on it says the left gate stuck closed so I looked at it and I had the wires back words so I changed them the right way but it still says left gate stuck closed but when I put it in the test for it everything works fine ,any ideas guys ?

Go into switch test and roll the ball over the orbit switches on the right side and check for consistency. You may need to adjust the switch arms and the switch base for alignment with ball.

So are you saying the switchs works the gates?

Yes. There are 2 switches on each orbit that let the cpu know to trigger the coil for the gate.
This is the tweaking part.
Sometimes the switch is intermittent and needs replacing. Sometimes it's the actuator arms that need to be fiddled with for optimal performance.
Hold the ball against the ball guide and see where the wire contacts the ball. Should be on the very bottom of the sphere.
