Common Issues For Residential Stairlifts

In order to give you the repair services you need, you have to know common issues stairlifts face and if there is anything you can do to fix it. By knowing these prevalent but easily fixed issues, you will be taking great care of your residential stairlift.

Key Switch: A stairlift’s key switch is a common problem area when it is in the incorrect position. If the user fails to turn it properly, or if curious grandchildren decide to play with the key switch while you’re not looking, it can seem like a more serious operational issue than it is. Locate the switch and test your stairlift by turning the key off and then back on.   

Power Supply: This may seem like an obvious feature to check when you’re having issues, but many forget about it because it is so simple. Confirm that your stairlift’s power supply is plugged into a functional outlet. If your stairlift still doesn’t work after testing a couple of power outlets, call the trusted Seattle stairlift repair service right away.

Battery Disconnect Switch: A stairlift’s battery disconnect switch can cut off the power supply to your stairlift. This switch is typically located in an area of the stairlift that would make it difficult to accidentally hit or nudge it.

Home Chair Lift Safety & Wheelchair Lift Care

Stair Lift Maintenance & Repair Starts with Great Care

 Having a lift in your home can be life-changing. It can make movement from floor to floor easy and safe for those who many have mobility issues, or need some extra assistance.
While an in-home lift can make life much easier, it’s important to make sure that regular maintenance on your lift is vital to keeping it running safely and functioning properly. Lifts are pieces of machinery and they should be treated with an appropriate amount of respect and care. At JWS Elevator, we are dedicated to providing lift maintenance services Seattle residents need, but we believe that you should know how to the proper tips to avoid repairs and servicing whenever possible.

Not only do we want your lift in great condition so that you don’t have to pay unnecessary service fees, but we want you to be as safe as possible when using it. Avoid dangerous situations by knowing these important safety tips:

  • Choose an experienced contractor: This may seem like an obvious tip, however it is one that cannot go overlooked. While a lift may not travel a very long distance, the security of the user is of the utmost importance. Keeping safety a priority before a lift is installed is the most important thing you can do to keep your lift safe from day one.  
  • Make sure it has a power backup: In case of a power outage or fire, the lift needs to have a backup battery or generator that functions. These power sources will allow the user to get out of the lift if they’re in it when a power outage occurs, or to use the lift in case of fire.  
  • Keep the area clear: If you live in a home with other people, especially children, it is important to make sure that the area is clear when you use the lift. Many lifts may be located next to a home’s stairwell. In these cases, it is very important to come up with a system to make sure that no one uses the stairs while the lift is in motion.  
  • Learn to recognize when your lift needs repair: When your lift is being installed, it is a good idea to ask the contractor about common issues that home lift owners deal experience. That way, when any strange sounds, like squealing or squeaking happen, you know that it’s time to call. When it's time to seek lift repair services, doing so immediately when you notice something is wrong will save headaches and money in the long run.
