Sometimes stairlifts can break down. A lot of the time it’s something minor and can easily be fixed. When a stairlift breaks down it isn’t usually a cause for concern, but we understand that it can be frustrating especially if you rely on your stairlift to move around your house.
Here are some of our helpful tips on what to do if your stairlift breaks that should mean you can get back to what you need to do as soon as possible.
What To Do If Your Stairlift Breaks?
If your stairlift breaks down then there are a few things you can do to try and fix the problem and get the stairlift up and running.
Here are our helpful tips on what to do if your stairlift breaks.
Try and See What The Problem Is
Often when a stairlift breaks down it is something very simple that you might have overlooked. In most cases, it’s simply a problem with the power.
Make sure your stairlift is plugged in, switched on and getting enough power. If you are using a remote control to use your stairlift, check that it is fully charged or that the batteries in it are working.
Low power is often the cause of that beeping noise you sometimes hear when a stairlift breaks down.
Check there is nothing obstructing the stairlift. Stairlifts are designed to have sensors for safety reasons. If something is blocking the way is the stairlift will stop short of it to make sure that nothing gets stuck in the mechanism and to ensure no one gets hurt.
Sometimes a build-up of dust can trigger the sensor so if there is nothing obvious in the way then it might be that you need to give your stairlift a wipe so that it can run smoothly.
