Sedgwick Residential Elevators Parts and Maintenance



A discussion started in 2001 but continuing through 2018

(2001)

Q. I own a home that has a residential elevator (drum type). It is a Sedgwick brand elevator, and I have been unable to find any information on this brand. Most elevator maintenance companies in my area (Phila.) typically refuse to do maintenance on elevators that are not their own or are limited to the brands that they install. I can use some help on any information on parts or companies that handle old elevator parts.

I appreciate any help!

A. Hi William.

This site is primarily about industrial metal finishing, so it tends to cover finishing and refinishing of elevators rather than parts and service--but here is your inquiry and we'll see if anyone can help. Good luck.

Q. I have one too and have the exact same problem. It takes no.2 worm gear oil in the transmission. Where can I get the oil? Where can I get it inspected? Please let me know if you get any info. Thanks. Steve.

A. Try the major elevator companies. Otis, Shindler, ThyssenKrupp Elevator.

A. There is a reason that the major elevator companies won't maintain that equipment. I STRONGLY recommend you get a new elevator installed.

A. If anyone has a Sedgwick, you may want to try contacting Peelle. They bought Sedgwick.

A. If you can provide me with more information (pictures,plans,brief description) maybe I can give you any advice about what you have to replace or repair in your elevator.

A. Sedwick elevators are just like the rest. The main thing is that you should have a set of electrical drawings present.
Most parts are interchangeable with other manufacturers and service is minimal.
Any real elevator person can generally service and repair your units.
If you lack drawings-Look for a contract # inside the main controller and contact Quality elevator for assistance.They can get you a copy of your original prints with that contract #

Q. I have an old Sedgwick hydraulic elevator. It got stuck on second floor. It won't come down even the power is on. I can't lower it manually either although it has an emergency lower knob. Anyone knows how to lower it manually?

Q. I have Sedgwick elevator- 87-16187. My programmable controller- SYSMAC S6 is showing CPU- ERR. What should I do. Can I get a Sedgwick programmed S6. Where can I get Schematic Drawings. My elevator guy said- replace the entire Control Unit. Sounds crazy and expensive. Please help

A. Hi Joe,
Omron made the Sysmac S6 and you can buy used units online inexpensively. I have a copy of the schematics and manual and would be happy to email you a copy. You can alternatively try downloading from

Q. We are looking for the schematics for a two-floor roped Sedgwick elevator installed at the church in late 1991. Does anyone out there have a copy?

thumbs up signHi Carl. With luck you'll find out in which farmer's field of haystacks you should look for that needle. Sorry, but it doesn't sound promising :-(

Q. Hi. Our church is being asked to prove (for city fire inspection) that we have a Lift vs an elevator, We have the schematics for our Sedgewick LULU LIFT but they are difficult to read. The Microprocessor Controller was installed in 1988 ,model #88-16504. In our records the term "elevator" is generically used. I tried calling the Poughkeepsie , NY numbers but they are out of service. I do have the contract number on the schematics. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A. Hi J. I would have expected the State to have clear guidelines for what constitutes a lift vs. what is an elevator, rather than relying on which piece of slang a vendor employs -- because sellers will use whatever words make something easier to sell in each individual situation :-)

My community clubhouse has a vertical device, open to the air from waist height or so, that can take a person or chair up or down one floor. As an amateur, I think of this clearly as a lift because a person could climb out in an emergency, and even if the person were disabled they would be visible, not trapped out of sight. My understanding is that LULA means Limited Use Limited Application, and is actually acknowledged as a hybrid between a wheelchair lift and a commercial elevator, rather than being either one or the other.

You and I aren't fire inspectors, are untrained and unfamiliar with fire hazards, and we certainly would not want to feel guilty if there were an accident, so I'd say let the trained fire inspector figure out what inspections are prudent but unburdensome based on what he sees :-)

Good luck, and regards,
