Escalator Factory Fujihd Help You Reduce Elevator Maintenance Cost (Basic 3 Ways). Because elevators have been used more and more in our lives, you need to know about some simple maintenance of elevators. After all, asking people to repair elevators is very expensive.

As a matter of fact, using some basic observations skills, many of these problems can be remedied without the expense of calling your elevator service provider. Some safe and easy solutions for these problems are given below.

1. Check for trash or debris at the bottom of the door in the door sill. The door sill guides the bottom of the door to keep it from being pushed into the elevator shaft. Guides fit inside a groove in the sill. The clearance in these grooves is nominal and it takes very little to jam the door so that it will not close properly. And if the elevator doors do not close completely the elevator will not run.

2. Check the door reopening device. All elevators have devices that detect if an object is in the door to keep the door from closing on a passenger. Some of these are mechanical, some are electronic with infrared beams, and some have a combination of both. The mechanical door detectors can get stuck in the retracted position causing the elevator to believe that someone or something is obstructing the door. The infrared detector lenses will get dirty not allowing the receiving unit to see the infrared beam. Be sure the detector lenses are clean and free of dirt. Both of these will cause the doors not to close or sound an alarm and close at a reduced speed, depending on the code restrictions in your area.

3. Check for stuck push buttons. Many times the elevator doors are not the problem at all. If a push button on the car or in the hall is stuck, the elevator will remain on that floor with the doors open. For example, if the door open button is stuck, the elevator will hold the doors open. If the 2nd floor button is stuck, the elevator will go to the 2nd floor and remain there with the door open. Many times you will be able to get the button unstuck by simply pushing it a few times. This is only a temporary fix. If this occurs, the button usually needs replacing and a technician should be called.

Doing the above simple things will help building managers reduce billable repairs, as well as, elevator down time. However, remember never attempting to gain access to the top of the elevator or open the elevator doors manually. This requires proper training. Elevators are electrical and mechanical devices. Great care should be taken when dealing with such devices.
