ELEVATOR PRINT READING AND FAULT CODES
Given all the various makes and models of elevators even the best elevator person can be stumped by a confusing print. In the Print Talk forum you are invited to ask your questions about the specific circuit or operation that has you stumped. Most likely, at least one member can walk you through the tough part and get you back to fixing your elevator.
Also, bring your fault code questions. Depending on the equipment that you are working on, fault codes are not always available in the controller books. Sometimes the manufacture will add codes that are not clear or will steer you in the wrong direction. Here based on what the elevator is doing and the fault codes our members will help you get back on track.

Make sure you try to get a shot of the controller data plate.
