Additional information:
The UK Chartered Trading Standards Institute (“CTSI”) reports the following Stairlifts are subject to this recall:

  • Minivator 2000 Stairlifts, with serial numbers starting with the following prefixes: 01022, 02022, 03022, 04022, 05022, 06022, 07022, 08022, 09022, 10022, 11022, 12022, 01032, 02032, 03032, 04032, 05032, 06032, 07032, 08032, 09032, 10032, 11032, 12032, 01042, 02042, 03042, 04042, 05042, 06042, 07042 and 08042

Please consult the photograph above for details of the Stairlift’s design and retail presentation.

According to the CTSI, an upgrade programme carried out on Minivator 2000 Curved Stairlifts manufactured between 1st January 2002 and 31st August 2004 may not have captured all units within the batch identified as requiring the upgrade.

All owners of Minivator 2000 Curved Stairlifts, therefore, including reconditioned second hand units, should examine their Stairlift to determine if the affixed serial number (see graphic above for placement of the serial number label plate) is within the upgrade batch. The serial number can be found on the label located on the top of the drive unit under the seat.

If your serial number starts with any of the number sequences listed above, please call the company’s 24-hour registration service on 0800 090 1581 to register your Stairlift. Minivator will then arrange to visit your Stairlift to confirm the upgrade has been completed, or carry it out the upgrade if required, free of charge.
