Troubleshooting Checklist: Identifying and Resolving Stairlift Faults

Use this helpful checklist to identify possible faults with your Stannah 600 Stairlift and determine the appropriate steps to overcome them. If the checklist does not resolve the issue, refer to the displayed code and take the necessary action:

 

 CODE 1: Charging/Battery Fault 

If your stairlift displays Code 1 for a charging or battery fault:
Ensure that the wall switch is in the ON position.
Check if there has been a power cut or interruption in the electrical supply.
If the problem persists:
Verify that the battery charger is connected properly.
Check the battery status using the user display panel.
Contact your Stannah supplier for further assistance.

 

CODE 2: Normal Operation Mode - No Faults Found 

If your Stannah 600 Stairlift displays Code 2, it indicates that the stairlift is operating normally and no faults have been detected. This is a positive indication that your stairlift is functioning as intended.

 

CODE 3: Obstruction Detected around the Footrest/Carriage

Check whether there is anything obstructing the safety edges. If there is, the stairlift is still on and can be moved in the opposite direction to allow you to remove the obstruction. You can then continue to go up or down the stairs

CODE 4: Power Key or On/Off Switch Issue

If your Stannah 600 Stairlift displays Code 4, it indicates a problem related to the power key or the on/off switch. Follow the steps below to address this issue:

Check the Power Key:

Ensure that the power key is inserted correctly into the designated keyhole on the side of the chair.
Verify that the power key is fully inserted and securely positioned.
Check the On/Off Switch:

Locate the on/off switch, typically located on the armrest or control panel of the stairlift.
Confirm that the on/off switch is in the 'on' position.
If it is in the 'off' position, switch it to the 'on' position.
Test the Stairlift:

Once you have verified that the power key is inserted correctly and the on/off switch is in the 'on' position, test the stairlift to ensure it is functioning properly.
Press the appropriate controls or use the arm control to initiate movement and confirm that the stairlift is operational.

CODE 5: Downside arm not lowered. 

Ensure downside arm is fully lowered.

CODE 6: Immobilizer Seatbelt Not Fastened Correctly (Optional)

If your Stannah 600 Stairlift displays Code 6, it indicates that the immobilizer seatbelt, if equipped, is not fastened correctly. Please note that the immobilizer seatbelt is an optional feature on some models. Follow the steps below to resolve this issue:

Verify Seatbelt Fastening:

Check if the immobilizer seatbelt is properly fastened and securely engaged.
Ensure that the seatbelt is properly inserted into the buckle and tightened to provide a secure fit.
Adjust and Retest:

If the seatbelt is not fastened correctly, adjust it to the appropriate length and ensure it is properly secured.
Retest the stairlift to confirm that the Code 6 has been resolved.
Please note that the immobilizer seatbelt is an optional feature designed for added safety during stairlift use. If your stairlift does not have an immobilizer seatbelt or if you are unable to fasten it correctly, you can proceed without using the seatbelt. However, it is generally recommended to utilize the seatbelt for enhanced safety and security.
