Common Elevator Malfunctions

There are a variety of elevator problems that affect the regular operation on an elevator system. These include:

  • wiring malfunction and power failures
  • faulty doors that prevent safe passage in or out of the cab
  • problems with the elevator floor evenly leveling up with the lobby floor
  • excessive elevator speed or sudden elevator lurching
  • sudden stops and hard landings
  • Other malfunctions due to poor maintenance or repair

The cause of these elevator malfunctions can be determined when the elevator has been investigated by an elevator technician. Once a repair solution has been decided, the technician will make the necessary repairs that will minimize future risks to passengers.

What Causes Elevator Malfunctions?

Worn-Out Sheaves - The sheave is a pulley that is connected to the elevator hoist ropes or cables. In traction elevators, elevator sheaves are the pulleys that hold the elevator cables. These are responsible for the elevator’s traction and thus its lifting and lowering motion. Basically, it moves the elevator up and down between floors. With continued use, the grooves in the sheaves that hold the ropes become worn and affect the elevator’s safety and efficiency. Over time, as the sheaves will become worn, they put extra pressure on the ropes, causing an irregular ride. Sheaves can be replaced or re-grooved to repair this.

Contaminated Lubrication and Oil - Elevators rely heavily on lubrication system to smoothly move metal parts with minimal friction. Over time, there is a normal amount of friction that will invariably occur, causing metal shavings and particles to contaminate the lubricants. During an inspection, an elevator inspection of metal levels are checked in the oil and lubricants, and will be changed.

Bearing Breakdowns - Bearings are a metal component that can experience wear through time. If bearings don't work efficiently, they can create dangerous situation. A noisy motor can be an indication of worn bearings. An inspector can recommend installation of inductive absorbers or replacement.

Power Supply Failures - Elevators rely heavily on the power supplies from the building, and not so much from the elevator system itself. Regardless of the source, power failures have adverse effects on the electrical components that are powered by them, including doors, motors, lights and sensors. An inspector will make sure an elevator system is receiving the proper voltage.
