We just completed wiring a new hangar door for a friend at Quahdi Field. Bifold Door works great. We have another older door in the old hangar which came from your company as well. Our problem is that when we try to run the door on the standby generator which is oversized for the hangar, the door brakes doesn't want to turn loose so the door can rise. Our voltage is correct at 215 volts These are single phase doors. 2 each motors. Everything else seems to work perfectly. We recently changed out 230 volt single phase service to 208 volt 3 phase and the actual voltage runs about 215 volts at the door. Any ideas??
