Thanks for the info, and I would not attempt to fix anything as I am no expert on these things, especially since it is not my stairlift! On further investigation, the problem seems to be with a relay – there are 4 on the PCB and when you hold the switch down, one of the smaller relays starts clicking, the clicking gets more rapid and louder then the motor suddenly starts up. Makes no difference whether I use the lever or not. Seems to go upstairs OK but gets stuck at the top sometimes, but when running, the thing works very well.
If it is just a faulty relay then can you still get parts for these old stairlifts and is this a fairly easy fix? Or is the system toast and not worth bothering with?
