Elevators a common name which is seen in every commonplace such as malls, airports and railway stations,etc. It makes an easy move from one floor to another, but do we know if it wants any repair or maintenance than what would be the cost? Well, everyone looks for the ways to reduce the maintenance cost as it is much costlier than even we think, especially when overtime service is required. In this session of writing our purpose is to show you a mirror when dealing with an elevator shutdown to cost cut the repair and maintenance. It is clear that elevators are not designed to run open doors; doors must be properly closed and locked properly before making a move. Open door elevator will not run.
Check few points mentioned below and cost cut your repair and maintenance charges.
Stuck push button:
Well, in many of the times we blame the elevator doors,but somehow the problem is not of doors at all. While using the elevator if you push the stuck button elevator will remain on the same floor with open doors. People, many of the times to get rid of this starts pushing the button unstuck regularly for few minutes, which is a temporary fix. In such situations the button needs a technician to replace the button with a new one as the functionality of the button is disconnected.
Reopening door device:
Elevators have a sensor device to detect that if an obstacle is in the door to keep the door from closing. Today everything is electronic but few of the elevators have mechanical devices to detect,and very fewer of them have both. In electronic infrared beams detects, whereas in mechanical doors detectors obstacle stuck in a retracted position causing the elevator to obstruct door from closing. Make sure that detector lenses must be clean and free of dirty things. These small things not only obstruct the door to close but also sound alarmed and reduce the speed of the elevator.
Check trash or debris at the bottom of the door:
Check the door sill guides the bottom of the door to keep it stuck in an elevator shaft. Guides are fitted inside the grooves. Grooves clearance is quite nominal and takes a bit obstacle to jam the door such as bottle caps, screws, paper,etc. Remember if the door is not closed elevator properly will not run.
Considerable points related to doors:
- Doors of elevator seem to be closed,but the elevator does not move, at the same point check the door again.
- Elevator never closes the door self; you should have to come in front to do so.
Above writing, the session is quite a nominal way to clarify how to take care of small and silly things to avoid maintenance and repair cost of an elevator. But if you think that problem is not detected and resolved properly in such cases you can contact domestic elevator suppliers or technicians to get you out of the situation. Remaining everything needs safety while using.
