I have tried to locate a manual (as seen in the picture) on FAAC's website. The model number XF 433 turns out to be the code of the radio module.

enter image description here

At the moment the a swing leaf gate it controls is not responding. I suspect it is caused by a blown fuse due to a recent storm.

Where is the fuse and how can I replace it? Do I need to remove the radio module (XF 433) before I take of the frosty plastic cover?

    why don't you take off the cover and look for a fuse?

  • Do you mean the frosted plastic cover? I am not familiar with the unit, so I want some instructions. Jan 9 at 3:00

    it's not rocket science ... wiggle the cover ... look for latches or screws at places where the cover appears to bind ... otherwise, call a gate service tech

    Most of us won't have specific experience with a given piece of hardware -- but it turns out engineers who make hardware tend to follow patterns. We learn to identify those patterns. There are a red+black pair of wires going to the top, near where the frosted cover says POWER. Through the cover we see an array of cylinders with silver tops; both of these things are signs that the board's power supply is in that area. If the board has a fuse on its input that's the area where it'll almost certainly be found. Figure out how to remove the cover and have a look.

The fuse is located under the logic board. (see attached photo)

It is actually not necessary to remove the frosty plastic cover of the logic board. As a matter of fact, removing the cover incorrectly could bend and damage the pins of the radio module.

The fuse is a glass fuse T2A.


@Anthony Kong- There is a fuse. It may be resettable or replaceable. Here's your link for the maanual. Let me know what happens or if I can help.

    I'm not a downvoter, but link-only answers (which this is basically) are discouraged since links can die. I'd suggest going though the manual and transcribing the fuse information into your answer,

  • yeah it takes half a minute to copy a screenshot from a pdf or web page into an answer, less if you can cut and paste text.

  • @ojait Actually, I am correct. Here is a direct quote from the help page on writing answers: “ Always quote the most relevant part of an important link, in case the external resource is unreachable or goes permanently offline.”
