Description of Operation
3.1 Charging Your Stairlift
The Stairlift batteries are recharged from charging points when the Stairlift is in its parked
position at the top and bottom of the stairs. The charging points are connected to the
mains electricity supply through a transformer.
If there is a mains electricity supply failure, or if the supply to your Stairlift is switched off, it
will continue to operate for several journeys. However, the batteries will eventually lose
their charge and the Stairlift will not operate.
If the batteries are not being recharged you will see this flashing symbol,
on the fault indicator, and hear a bleep alarm.
To ensure that the batteries are kept fully charged, the mains electricity
supply should always be switched on and the Stairlift parked on its charge
If the batteries have lost their charge because the mains electricity supply
has been switched off, or interrupted, allow them to recharge before using
the Stairlift. This symbol will stop flashing when the Stairlift is ready for use.
