SRE-3000 Operator 09-24-2012
FOR YOUR SAFETY
Each stairway elevator is designed to descend the stairway at a slightly slower speed
than is the case when travelling UP.
The footrest and carriage are equipped with obstruction sensors which stop the carriage
if an obstacle is encountered on the stairs.
If this should occur, press the UP/DOWN rocker control switch (on the armrest) in the
opposite direction to run the carriage away from the obstruction. Clear the obstacle from
the stairway or rail then resume travel in the desired direction.
Your SRE-3000 is battery powered and will continue to operate for some time during a
power outage. The length of operation will depend on the battery condition, the length of
the stairs and the weight of the rider.
Only in the event of a prolonged power outage (more than one hour) will it be necessary to
turn the power off (circuit breaker switch on the carriage).

CIRCUIT BREAKER
The SRE-3000 includes a circuit breaker with
built-in ON/OFF switch located on the
carriage.
The circuit breaker protects the battery,
controller and motor circuits in the stairway
elevator carriage.
It is unlikely that this circuit breaker will trip
during normal use. However, if the elevator
becomes inoperative, check the circuit breaker
as a first troubleshooting step. Reset it, if
necessary.
Possible causes of circuit breaker tripping:
• foreign object jamming the rail or gear
rack;
• exceeding the rated weight capacity of the
stairway elevator.

SEATING
UP/DOWN
rocker control switch
The seat assembly on the SRE-3000 is
designed to swivel and to lock at 0, 67 and
90 degrees.
Pushing down on either side of the swivel
lever allows you to swivel the seat to a
convenient position for transferring into or
out of the seat.
Once you release the swivel lever, the seat
will lock at the next available position.
To lower the seat assembly from a folded
position to the riding position, simply push
down on the seat.

OPERATION
The SRE-3000 includes a
“soft-start” feature which
prevents the unit from moving
abruptly the instant the
UP/DOWN switch is pressed.
Press and hold the switch for
a moment to begin the gentle
acceleration of the stairway
elevator to operating speed.
Depressing and holding the
rocker switch will cause the
carriage to move until the
carriage stops automatically at
the upper or lower end of the
stair rail, or until the switch is
released.
©2012 Bruno Independent Living Aids, Inc.®
1. Turn the keyswitch to ON.
2. Position yourself in the seat.
3. Fasten the positioning belt.
4.Depress and hold the seat swivel lever.
5.Rotate the seat so that you are at right
angles to the rail (with your back to the
stairway wall).
6.Release the seat swivel lever to secure
the seat in that position.
A safety switch prevents operation of
the SRE-3000 unless the seat is locked
in position at right angles to the rail
(the “riding” position).
7.Lower both armrests completely.
NOTE: If the armrests are not completely
lowered, a safety switch disables the
rocker switch and the stairway elevator
will not operate.

SRE-3000 Operator 09-24-2012
OPERATION

footrest and place your arms on the
armrests.
9.Press and hold the rocker control
switch (located on the front edge of
one of the armrests) to travel
UP / DOWN the rail.
10.Once you have reached the top or
bottom landing, release the rocker
switch.
11.Depress and hold the seat swivel
lever as you rotate to the position for
transferring from the seat.
NOTE: The seat will only swivel at the
top landing.

CHARGING
Keep the batteries charged t o ensure optimal operation
of your SRE-3000.
The batteries are charging whenever the carriage is
parked anywhere on the rail.
Failure to keep the batteries charged, or allowing them
to fully discharge, will significantly shorten the life of
the batteries.
Occasionally check the battery charger LED to make
sure the stairway elevator is being charged correctly.

MAINTENANCE
Your SRE-3000 is designed to provide many years of reliable service with
minimal maintenance.
For best service life:
• Keep the rail clean and free of debris.
• Keep the battery charger plugged into a live outlet at all times.
• At least once a year, have the elevator examined, cleaned and lubricated by
an authorized Bruno service technician. A complete list of annual maintenance
operations appears in the installation manual available from your Bruno
dealer.
Seat Upholstery Cleaning
All seating and operator contact areas are fabricated of common materials
without a history of causing operator reactions or irritations. The SRE-3000 has
been designed assuming that the operator will be wearing clothing covering the
torso and footwear. If the user has special sensitivities, normal clothing
precautions are suggested.
For day-to-day cleaning, use a mild soap and water solution and a soft, lint-free
cloth. Do not use vinyl conditioners or protectants.
For more difficult stains, use an all-purpose cleaner such as Formula 409® or
Fantastik® and a damp, soft cloth or sponge. Rinse with clean water and dry
with a lint-free cloth or towel.

TROUBLESHOOTING
Your SRE-3000 is not operating correctly. What should you do?
Before calling your Bruno dealer, refer to the solutions listed below. This could save you
an unnecessary service call!
• Seat swivel. Is the seat locked in the riding position?
• Barrier arms. A
re both arms completely down (rider in seated position) when
pressing the rocker switch?
• Footrest. Is there an obstruction on the stairway that the footrest is contacting?
• Carriage safety panels. I s there an obstruction on the stairway that the carriage
safety panels are contacting?
• Main circuit breaker (or fuse) panel of residence. H
as a breaker tripped or a fuse
blown?
• Battery charger. A
discharged battery will cause the carriage to move more slowly
until the voltage drops to the point where the controller will shut off.
If this should occur, pause for a moment, then run the carriage
down.
Partially charged batteries will run the carriage down, but not up.

SRE-3000 Operator 09-24-2012
TROUBLESHOOTING (CONTINUED)
• Battery charger (continued). C
onfirm that the battery charger is plugged into a live
outlet and wait for the batteries to charge.
Is the battery charger plugged into a functional outlet? Do not use outlets which are controlled by a wall
switch.
Is the power light on? See Diagnostics, page 13.
• Visual check. D
o you notice anything about your elevator that is different or out of
place?
If your SRE-3000 continues to function improperly or not at all after completing the
preceding checklist, contact an authorized Bruno dealer to perform all required service,
repair and maintenance operations.

VACATION AND LONG-TERM STORAGE
If the SRE-3000 will remain unused for an extended period of time, turn off the circuit
breaker (ON/OFF switch) on the carriage.
NOTE: T
he batteries may require recharging before normal use if the stairway elevator
remained unused for an extended period of time.
To recharge, simply turn on the circuit breaker and wait until the battery charger LED
indicates that the batteries are fully recharged.

CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, WHETHER SUCH DAMAGES ARISE FROM CLAIMS

ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING ANY WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR
FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, ARE LIMITED IN THEIR DURATION TO THE

undertaken by anyone other than Bruno factory employees or authorized distributors. The
“original purchaser” of a Bruno Stairlift that is leased or rented shall be the person or entity
