At Mobility123, we understand that experiencing issues with your stairlift can be frustrating and inconvenient. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of basic troubleshooting tips to help you identify and resolve common stairlift issues. However, if you’re unable to fix the problem with these simple tips, it’s crucial to schedule a service call with one of our trained Mobility123 technicians to ensure the safe and efficient operation of your stairlift.
Basic Troubleshooting Tips and Descriptions:
- Check the power supply: Make sure the stairlift is connected to a working power outlet and that the power switch is turned on. If the stairlift is battery-powered, ensure it has been charging and the battery is not depleted.
- Verify the key is in the ‘ON’ position: Ensure the key is inserted correctly and turned to the ‘ON’ position, allowing the stairlift to operate.
- Examine safety sensors: Inspect the safety sensors on the footrest and carriage for any obstructions. Remove any debris or objects that could be triggering the sensors and causing the stairlift to stop.
- Confirm the seat is in the correct position: Ensure the seat is in the riding position and locked into place. Some stairlifts will not operate if the seat is swiveled or not securely locked.
- Check the seat belt: Some stairlift models require the seat belt to be fastened before operation. Make sure the seat belt is securely fastened.
- Inspect the remote control: Check the remote control for any visible damage and replace the batteries if necessary. Ensure the remote control is functioning properly and sending signals to the stairlift.
- Review error codes: If your stairlift displays an error code, consult the user manual for information about the specific issue and follow the recommended troubleshooting steps.
- Reset the stairlift: Turn the stairlift off using the power switch or key, wait for a few seconds, and then turn it back on. This can sometimes resolve minor issues.
