I’ve just installed an old Stannah 230 after converting it from right to left hand. All was working well but I accidently ran it too close to the end before I fitted the buffers on the track (stupid – I know).
The lift is now “locked”/stuck at the end of the track and I can’t manually wind it and I can’t even turn the motor fly wheel by hand.
The second problem is that there are no lights/power at all after the incident. Mains power is getting to the PCB. I’ve changed the two PCB fuses. I’ve tried wiring around the trailing flex, that runs along the track, just to eliminate a damaged cable but still get no lights/response.
Any help/ideas would be appreciated.

Sounds like the osg has fired and jammed. Which trips a m/sw which cuts all power. From a dim memory of these Didn’t think u could rehand the carriage. Only the seat could be changed

On a call out similar atm, lifts dead, getting 26v to the board, I did find a break in the OSG cable at the back where itâ€™s cable tied tightly to the top trunnion loom. on connections CP1+2 now Iâ€™m getting continuity but lift still isnâ€™t powering up

What lift is that? Doesnâ€™t find like a 230? More like a Minovator 2000? They have trunnions
As as for the dead 230 sounds like the OSG/ safety gear has come in? Where is the carriage top or bottom of rail?
You say you rehanded it? How? Bet you didnâ€™t swap the thrust rollers over?
Personally Iâ€™d weight it in, 230â€™s were good in their day but now you will struggle to get bits for it and Iâ€™m surprised the rail is still in one piece! Iâ€™ve condemned several of them recently due to the center uprights where the thrust rollers run cracking and breaking off, had one customer glueing the bits back in when they fall off!
