The Acorn 180 with T565 was moved from the old house to the new house. It needs programmed to the new straight stairs (old had a 90 degree) and the added length.
How do I enter programming mode on the Acorn 180?
If anyone can direct me to the manual for sale or for free, I’d be very appreciative.
We also get an H7 after leaving the top charge point and going over the angle to go down the stairs.

H7 is tilt fault, lift is not liking its new rail and needs programming, acorn wont talk to you, their engineers are cagey about the programming, I think that’s due it being complicated and you looking like a sexual deviant when you do it! the old manual is available online but you will struggle to find the new one, trust me I’ve looked, called in favours with ex acorn engineers who know someone who know someone and they will ring you back……. I’m still waiting
the manual is available to buy, but its not cheap! and he says that looking for the link and its no longer listed!
I do how ever have a copy deep in my emails somewhere, I’ll see if I can dig it out and sort out the programming section

Thank you Fredt, that would be very helpful. That has been my experience, Acorn would not even tell me who originally installed the stairlift. None of the local shops I’ve found will service Acorn.
The H7 triggers right after the vertical bend when leaving the horizontal section with the top charging point. When we lift on the downstairs side, it is level enough to move under its own power again. I agree, reprogramming is in order.
Do you recall how to enter programming mode? Do I hold in on the up and down obstruction sensors on the carriage and press in somewhere on the footboard?

The carrier appeared to jerk a little then stop. It happened on a straight section of rail, no seam. Like you unplugged the battery, no error code, no beeping, the key does nothing, no movement. Is there a manual reset switch that Iâ€™m not seeing?
