ANSWER: The answer to your question originally appeared in the Oct. 17 Sun Spots so you may just have missed it. I’m printing the answer again for your convenience and for anyone else who is looking for this service.

Maine Accessibility Corp. (MAC), https://www.mainestairlifts.com/, in Gorham repairs those chairlifts. You can reach them at 767-5690.

MobilityWorks in Gray, https://home.mobilityworks.com/, may be another option. The number is 1-877-275-4903.

There are also YouTube videos online for troubleshooting and repair purposes. Just remember, if your chairlift is still under warranty and you have someone other than an Acorn technician repair it, the warranty will no longer be honored. Either of these companies listed above can walk you through your questions about that if applicable. I hope everything is all better for you and your chairlift very soon.
