Coastal Carolina Elevators LLC, formerly Seaside Elevator LLC, of Little River, S.C., has recalled about 240 residential hydraulic elevators. The elevator can operate while the gate door is open, posing a crushing hazard. This recall involves Elmira Hydraulic residential hydraulic elevators. The elevators were installed in homes with multiple floors. They have a manual accordion-style car gate door with vinyl laminate inserts and a control panel with up and down buttons, light switch, telephone, emergency stop button and power failure light. “Cambridge Elevating” is printed on the elevator’s push button panel.
Coastal Carolina Elevators has received three reports of incidents with the elevators, including one incident that resulted in a catastrophic brain injury to a 10-year-old boy from Baltimore, Md. This prompted the company’s recalling of the elevators.
The elevators were sold at Coastal Carolina Elevators through residential contractors and home builders, including DRHorton, in South Carolina from January 2006 through December 2009 for between $16,000 and $25,000. Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled elevators and contact Coastal Carolina Elevator for a free repair.
