The adjustable end stop you are describing is an old type that caused a lot of problems with broken limit switches, they replaced it with a plastic spring type one which is a lot better. I would contact your local dealer and buy two and also get a replacement limit switch from them
I’m not from your area but if you can’t source them locally let me know and I could post some

Replacing a limit switch on a 950 is not a simple plug and play job but that said you can buy the switches you want from any electronics supplyer (eg maplin). The ramps you will have to get from a dealer as Handicare won’t deal direct. They will like any manufactur want nothing to do with a self installed stairlift or lift not installed directly by them. Its a liability thing.

iirc The microswitch wiring is soldered on as well.

As these are limit switches, they are not just simply a Micro switches.
The type of switch to be fitted should be a failsafe-positive break switch. This offers protection in the event of contacts becoming stuck or welded together.
I have a large volume of these (several thousand) for supply to any prospective suppliers if required.

Ooooooh does anyone have the U83160.7 or equivalent? if so how much would we owe you for one plx…. I have a pic of one that looks like ours but no idea on size there ot tech spec I need and ours is black…. http://hegemon.co.uk/index.php/hegem…-micro-switch/
saying that… the one pictured there looks a lot smaller than the one in the chair and ours has a sort of longer arm on it but… the principle id there. also do we need to replace the 2 end stop ramps for the plastic ones?

It would be quicker and easyer for you to just get an engineer in to sort it. Any good dealer will have these as standard van parts.

With the help of VERY kind helpful people on this forum we have it sorted now…… my parts are in sort of transit…. im LOADS wiser now, the chair is now working perfectly, The help offered on this site has sorted it all for us, the detailed help to change the fuse, the realisation that it was all caused by ourselves because we put those 2 stop bars in the wrong slots, THANK YOU ALL for the time and shared knowledge that did this all for us.. 🙂 🙂 The true meaning of A Help Forum….. the parts I am getting are just standbys 🙂 in case…
