This recall involves LEV II, Volant and Rise residential elevators. The elevators were installed in residences with three or more floors.

The model/serial number is printed in the owner's manual and at the top of the elevator's controller, which is mounted at the top of the elevator in the hoistway or shaft.
Consumers should stop using the elevators immediately if they see an "E3" or "E8" error code displayed on the elevator. Even if there is no "E3" or "E8" error code displayed, contact the firm to arrange for a free software upgrade for the elevator. The firm's dealers are directly contacting consumers who purchased the recalled elevators.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risk of injury or death associated with the use of thousands of types of consumer products. Deaths, injuries, and property damage from consumer product-related incidents cost the nation more than $1 trillion annually. CPSC's work to ensure the safety of consumer products has contributed to a decline in the rate of injuries associated with consumer products over the past 50 years.
Federal law prohibits any person from selling products subject to a Commission ordered recall or a voluntary recall undertaken in consultation with the CPSC.
