4.0 LIFT MAINTENANCE GUIDELINES
4.1.1
OPERATIONAL INSPECTION OF THE MECHANICAL SAFETY
SYSTEM
INSPECTION 1
This 2 post lift is equipped with an electrically activated linear solenoid that is used to
disengage the mechanical safety dog from the lifting carriage. This inspection is required in
order to ensure that the electric solenoid is adjusted within its operating range and all
components are present.
NOTE: This inspection must be performed without a vehicle on lift.
1. Ensure that the lift is at its lowest position.
2. The safety mechanism is located under the black plastic protective housing
approximately half way up the towers. Remove the two retaining screws and remove
the cover to gain access to the safety system.
3. Inspect the safety system for any missing or damaged components, pay close
attention to the mounting bracket hardware and stop bar. (Compare with Figure 1)
4. If the stop bar does not exist, insert the roll pins supplied.
5. Verify that the solenoid mounting bracket hardware is tight.
6. Verify that the jam nut on the solenoid is tight.
7. Press the safety release button on the hand control and observe the motion of safety
release mechanism. The electric solenoid should smoothly pull the safety lock dog to
contact the stop bar for full disengagement of the lock. IF THE SOLENOID DOES
NOT DISENGAGE, CHECK THE VOLTAGE AT THE SAFETY SOLENOID AS
INSTRUCTED BELOW
• Using a voltmeter set to inspect 24VDC, record the voltage at the terminal
strip connector in the vicinity of the safety release solenoid. A minimum of
21 VDC is required at this connection.
• If voltage at the solenoid is lower than 21V, an electrician is required to
review input voltage to the lift and electrical setup from the main panel.
Adjust the solenoid as instructed in the “ADJUSTMENT OF ELECTRIC
SAFETY RELEASE SOLENOID” and recheck the operation of the release
solenoid.
• If the voltage is 21V to 24V then adjust the solenoid as instructed in the
section “ADJUSTMENT OF ELECTRIC SAFETY RELEASE SOLENOID”
8. Repeat operation inspection for opposite tower.
9. If any of the components are damaged, broken, missing or out of adjustment,
discontinue using the lift immediately until repairs and/or adjustments have
been completed.
35
Figure 1: 2 post safety system identification of components
Damage may occur if the solenoid and/or mounting bracket have not been installed
correctly or if adjustment is required.
Damage resulting from incorrect installation or adjustment will not be considered as
warranty under the terms of the warranty policy.
INSPECTION 2 : VISUAL INSPECTION OF CARRIAGE LOCK CUT-OUTS
NOTE: This inspection must be performed without a vehicle on the lift. Extra care must
be taken to ensure that the safety dogs are clearing the carriage prior to lowering the
lift, it is highly recommended that INSPECTION 1 be completed first and any
adjustments or fixes occur prior to performing this inspection.
1. Remove the black plastic protective housing approximately half way up the posts to
access the inspection windows.
36
2. Locate the inspection windows on either side of the safety mechanism. (Refer to figure
2)
3. While pressing the up button on the hand control, use a flashlight to look inside the
tower windows to inspect for any visible deformations on each carriage safety position.
Pay close attention to safety positions 1, 2 & 3. The visible surface of the carriage
must be flat without any dents or deformation.
4. Record all findings.
5. To lower, raise the lift until the safety dog has cleared the carriage. Press the safety
release button to activate the release solenoid, visually confirm that the safety dogs
have released to their maximum position as identified in INSPECTION 1.
6. Press the down button to lower the lift while holding the safety release button.
7. Repeat inspection for opposite tower.
8. Once inspection is complete, re-install plastic housing onto tower.
