Signs You Need to Call Stanley Elevator

Stanley Elevator has been one of the most trusted Maine elevator repair companies since 1951. In addition to delivering exceptional service, we educate our customers to recognize elevator problems, so they can contact us for timely repairs before their problems become serious.

Elevator problems are inevitable. However, they can progress quickly if they aren’t taken care of right away. Over time, they can shorten your service life and lead to injuries, expensive lawsuits, and costly repairs.

Here are some serious warning signs that you need to look out for. If you have any of these problems, then you should call Stanley Elevator immediately.

Malfunctioning Door Operators

Elevator doors should close within 2 1/2 to 3 seconds. If they take longer to activate, you may need to call our technicians to recalibrate or replace your door operators.

Overheating Motors

Elevator motor performance declines noticeably over time. The mechanical connections and bearings begin to break down, which forces the motor to work harder to carry the same loads. They may begin to overheat, which can lead to permanent damage.

Check the manufacturer temperature safety limits. If the motor temperature rises above this tolerance, then you should call us right away. We may need to replace the winding insulation or fix your ventilation system to prevent long-term damage.

Excessive Wait Times

Compare wait times against the manufacturer baseline. High wait times could indicate the relay is defective or drive system is beginning to fail. If the problems aren’t taken care of, the elevator could stall or the cables could snap, which will lead to service disruptions or possible accidents.
