What are the Most Common Problems With A Stairlift

, by Richard Spafford, 1 min reading time

Here are some of the most common problems that can occur with stairlifts:

  1. Stairlift not moving: If your stairlift is not moving, it may be due to a power outage, a blown fuse, a dead battery, or a malfunctioning motor.

  2. Strange noises: If your stairlift is making strange noises, it could be due to worn or damaged parts, such as the motor or gearbox.

  3. Slow or jerky movement: If your stairlift is moving slowly or jerking during operation, it may be due to a loose or worn drive belt or track, or a faulty control system.

  4. Battery problems: If your stairlift runs on battery power, it may experience issues such as a dead or weak battery, or a charging problem.

  5. Obstruction detection issues: Stairlifts are equipped with sensors to detect obstructions on the track, and if these sensors are not functioning correctly, it can cause the stairlift to stop unexpectedly or refuse to operate.

  6. Track alignment issues: If the track of the stairlift is not aligned properly, it can cause the stairlift to operate poorly or stop moving altogether.

  7. Control system issues: If the control system of your stairlift is malfunctioning, it can cause a variety of problems such as incorrect movement or a complete failure to operate.

If you experience any of these problems with your stairlift, it's best to contact USA Medical Supply of West Springfield, MA. We sell, service, and warranty all stairlifts purchased through us.
