What is the problem?

The elevator's door can unlock and open at a landing with no elevator car present, exposing the elevator shaft and posing a fall hazard to consumers.

How can I tell if I own this product?

The elevator's four-digit model number is part of the longer serial number. Model numbers included in this recall are "RLWL" for the LEV II, "RLGL" for the Volant and "RLRC" for the Rise. 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.

These items were sold new+ at Elevator dealers from December 2010 through August 2012 for between $16,000 and $26,000 installed.
