The stairlift starts as normal but the power quickly diminishes (you can physically hear the power loss) at this point it stops with an error code 2 which relates to battery charge. The display when charging displays a code of 5 with either a solid or flashing dot next to it which is normal (fast/trickle charge). The LED on the charger is green while it is on the charging point and a basic tester shows in the region of 33V being provided on the rail charging contact point. There is no rail hinge. I have’nt tested the battery charging current as yet but will do, do I measure this directly from the battery terminals whilst on charge? What should the expected current values be?
Many thanks to Northern Mobility for supplying the info above, it is really appreciated. From what’s detailed here it does after all look like a task which I can do myself, although I’m not an engineer I am technically minded and am more than happy to give this a go. Can I just ask when replacing the batteries is there a technique in doing so which will preserve memory etc? (i.e. do you replace one battery at a time so as to keep some power to the chairlift?). Once complete I take it that I then perform the actions you describe on your previous reply (#10), from what you have stated it seems like a simple reset is required and the speed, bends data etc is still retained (i.e a full re-program is not required?). Sorry to sound stupid (not familiar with all the terminology) but what is involved in checking both the top & bottom stops & final limits? Is it just a case of taking the chairlift to the top & bottom of the track to check the stop points? What is required if they do need adjusting. As always your help is very much appreciated.
