Handicare Stairlift Fault Codes are provided on all Handicare stairlifts. Whether you have a Handicare 950 Simplicity straight stairlift, a Handicare 950 Simplicity Plus straight stairlift, a Handicare 1000 straight stairlift or a Handicare 2000 curved stairlift, they are all now equipped with an extensive list of diagnostic fault codes. These Handicare stairlift fault codes are now universal and standard across their full range of stairlifts, straight and curved. These codes show the current status of the stairlift to the user or engineer. These can be used so that any operating issues can be resolved easily and quickly.
Use the table below to identify the current code displayed on Handicare stairlifts and view the solution to resolve any issues. These fault codes could help prevent the user from incurring a callout charge from a stairlift engineer having to attend.
Where necessary, the table will indicate whether the fault requires an engineer to attend or not. This will be apparent where it informs that a part is required or if the fault does not clear. If you are unsure or not confident in fault finding then we can arrange for a stairlift engineer to visit.
NOTE: If the display is showing anything but the diagnostic codes listed then it requires resetting.
To do this, drive the stairlift away from the top or bottom stop. Turn off the power supply at the wall. Turn the main switch on the unit off for 10 seconds and then back on again.
