FOR YOUR SAFETY
• Read and understand the operating instructions, and all safety precautions prior to
using the SRE-2750.
• Be sure stairs are clear of objects before operating the stairway elevator.
• Always be aware of the surface onto which you are stepping as you get on and off the
stairway elevator.
• Avoid carrying items with you on the stairway elevator which could hinder movement
of the elevator up and down the stairs.
• Do not wear LOOSE clothing that could interfere with elevator movement.
• Fasten your positioning belt before operating the stairway elevator.
• Make sure the seat is locked in the correct riding position.
• Be certain the seat swivel is locked in place before attempting to get on or off the
stairway elevator.

SRE-2750 Operator 03-19-2007
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 is equipped with obstruction sensors which stop the carriage if an obstacle is
encountered on the stairs.
If this should occur, press the opposite side of the UP/DOWN rocker control switch (on
the armrest) to run the carriage in the opposite direction. Clear the obstacle from the
stairway or rail then resume travel in the desired direction.
Your SRE-2750 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) and unplug the power
supply from the wall outlet to conserve battery charge.

CIRCUIT BREAKER
The SRE-2750 includes an ON/OFF switch
with a built-in circuit breaker 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
The seat assembly on the SRE-2750 is
designed to swivel (with standard armrests)
and to lock at 0, and 67 degrees.
Bruno offers, as an option, the capability
of setting a lock position at 90 degrees.
Lifting up on the swivel lever on either side
of the seat 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.
To lower the seat assembly from a folded,
up position, simply lower the seat to the
riding position.

OPERATION
1. Position yourself in the seat.
The SRE-2750 includes a
“soft-start” feature which
prevents the unit from moving
abruptly the instant the
UP/DOWN switch is pressed.
2. Fasten the positioning belt.
Press and hold the switch for
a moment to begin the gentle
acceleration of the stairway
elevator to operating speed.
5. R
elease the seat swivel lever to secure
the seat in that position.
A safety switch prevents operation of the
SRE-2750 unless the seat is locked in
position at right angles to the rail (the
“riding” position).
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.
©2007,2005 Bruno Independent Living Aids, Inc.®
3. Raise and hold the seat swivel lever.
4. R
otate the seat so that you are at right
angles to the rail (with your back to the
stairway wall).
6. P
osition both feet securely on the footrest and place your arms on the armrest
cushions.
7. P
ress and hold the rocker switch (located
on the front edge of one of the armrests)
to travel UP / DOWN the rail.

OPERATION
8.Once you have reached the top or bottom landing, release the rocker switch.
Two (2) remote call / send
transmitters enable you
to move the carriage to or
from either end of the stair
rail.
9.Raise and hold the seat swivel lever as
you rotate to the position for transferring
from the seat.
10.Release the seat swivel lever and allow
the seat to lock in this position.
11.Unbuckle the positioning belt and carefully exit the seat.

CHARGING
Keep the batteries charged t o ensure optimal operation
of your SRE-2750.
The batteries are charging whenever the carriage is parked
tightly against the brackets at either end of the rail. Whenever the carriage does not contact the upper or lower charge
bracket, the batteries will slowly discharge.
Failure to keep the batteries charged, or allowing them
to fully discharge, will significantly shorten the life of the
batteries.
Therefore, when the stairway elevator is not in use, park the
carriage at either end of the rail, making sure it touches the
charge bracket contacts.
If your application prevents parking the carriage at one or
the other end of the stairs (for example, a door at the top of
the stairs), ALWAYS use the call/send transmitter to move
the carriage to the end of the rail where the carriage can
contact the charge bracket. Using the transmitter, call it
back to the other end of the stairs when needed.

MAINTENANCE
Your SRE-2750 is designed to provide many years
of reliable service with minimal maintenance.

• Keep the rail channel clean and free of debris.
•A
lways park the carriage at one end of the rail so
that the batteries charge when the elevator is not
in use.
•K
eep the power supply plugged into a live outlet
at all times.
•A
t least once a year, have the elevator examined, cleaned and lubricated by a qualified,
authorized Bruno service technician.
Transmitter Battery Replacement
9V battery
To replace the battery in the call/send transmitters,

TROUBLESHOOTING
Your SRE-2750 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?
• 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?
• Power supply. 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
until the unit contacts the upper or lower charge bracket.
Partially charged batteries will run the carriage down, but not up.

SRE-2750 Operator 03-19-2007
TROUBLESHOOTING (CONTINUED)
• Power supply (continued). C
onfirm that the power supply is plugged into a live
outlet and wait for the batteries to charge.
Is the power supply plugged into a functional outlet? Do
not use outlets which are controlled by a wall switch.
Is the power light on?
• Visual check. D
o you notice anything about your elevator that is different or out of
place?
If your SRE-2750 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-2750 will remain unused for an extended period of time, turn off the circuit
breaker and unplug the power supply from the wall outlet.
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, reconnect the power supply to the wall
outlet and wait until the power supply LED’s indicate that the batteries are fully
recharged.

CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, WHETHER SUCH DAMAGES ARISE FROM CLAIMS
BASED ON CONTRACT, WARRANTY, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), STRICT LIABILITY OR PRODUCT LIABILITY. Some states do not allow the exclusion or

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

physical damage, modifications not made by Bruno, damage in shipment, or repairs
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
