Do any of my fellow stairlift engineers have programming instructions for this model? I believe it can be done without a programmer.

Hi Ian, yes I did manage to get hold of a couple of them shortly after we were in communication earlier this year. If you send me your email I can send them to you. The only trouble is that they are still making changes on a regular basis including how to get into program mode.

Kriss, would you be able to share the Acorn 180 programming manuals? [email protected]

Did you see the post here by chaz?
Seem to be for the newer controller board I have (Acorn curved 180 T565 PCB control board).
My chair will run fine from the top to near the bottom, but it seem to think it’s at the bottom and slows and stops. It just needs to be programmed, but I can’t get it to the programming mode. The battery was unplugged for a few months, but the memory is supposed to be nonvolatile, so it probably has the old program.
My chair flashes j3 when I drive it below the top charge point. When I hold down all three safety switches on the footrest, it never advances to display U1. It just says E1 all the time. If I power it off and on, it will flash A1, but still doesn’t advance to U1 when holding down the three footrest safety switches. When it moves again, it goes back to J3.
I can’t get it to the P1, so I’ll probably have to have Acorn come program it for me. Frustrating.
If anyone knows how to get past this, please let me know.

Hello Chris, hello Jan,
I am struggling trying to find details how to program a chair Acorn 180. Not much support from the manufacturer , here in Ohio and other reps I spoke with are not allowed to share the info. I would gladly contact someone overseas that would walk me through the steps.
Thank you for any suggestions. Adrian
