Types Of Issues
Stairlift Keeps Stopping When Going Upstairs
The most common type of stairlift issue is when it keeps stopping when going upstairs, sometimes it can be the case that both upstairs and downstairs it’s cutting out every few seconds.
Generally you just go again with the joystick until it stops a few inches later and keep repeating until the stairlift has reached it’s destination.
This points to the high possibility that your stairlift batteries are in need of replacement.
Stairlift Is Running Very Slow
Instead of just cutting out, your stairlift can run at an obviously slow speed and takes longer to reach the top of the stairs. It can sound like the lift is under pressure and before cutting out itself it can generally just become very slow when ascending the stairs.
This is another sign that your stairlift batteries may be in need or urgent replacement as the longer the problem remains the more depleted the batteries will become.
Stairlift Is Constantly Beeping
If your stair lift is beeping all the time, then it’s quite likely that it’s either not on a charge point or the charger is unplugged. Failing this then it’s most likely a faulty charger that needs replacement.
Most stairlifts charge at the bottom or top of the stairs, ensure your stairlift is in it’s normal position at the top or bottom of the stairs. Even if the stairlift looks like it’s parked where it’s supposed to be, still try and send the lift up / down further depending if you’re trying to park at the top or bottom of the stairs.
Also check the wall outlet where the charger for the stairlift is located, ensure it’s switched on and if in doubt about the wall outlet being used then get an extension lead and run an extension cable to the wall outlet location and try plugging the charger into the extension lead instead.
There’s many other potential stairlift problems that can cause your stair lift to break down. It’s always advised to check your user manual for a full list of faults and home remedies.
