1950's Armor Elevator Partsgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Elevator Problem Discussion : One Thread
I live in a building with an Armor elevator installed in the late 1950's. I donít know if it is hydraulic or not. I have seen the workings, which consist of a very large panel with switches and wheels.
We are having a problem with the switches. Sometimes the elevator stops on the wrong floor. We reset it by taking it to the top floor (10th), where it reads 9 and pushing 10 again. The door will open and shut twice and reset and that fixes the problem for a while.
My question is, are there parts available to fix this problem? We would like to keep the elevator we have.
Any information you can give would be most appreciated.

Dear Questioner, If this generation of Armor has a mechanical stepper this might be the possible cause of your problem. Sprocket and Pawl Blades wear-out. As far as parts go they are more than likely still available, contact a reputable elevator company.

If you have the Armor part #, you may be able to purchase them through Kone Spares Center 800-343-3344. Armor was purchased many years ago, and Since Kone now owns Montgomery's assets, they are where to go to get the parts. I purchased Armor parts from them within the last few years, so they should still be available. Good Luck! S.
