Glitches

These are some glitches found in the Asia Pacific version of Schindler 3300 elevators (3300 AP), it is unknown if these glitches are also found in other versions. Some of these glitches were found by some elevator enthusiasts while filming these elevators.

  • After car calls have been registered by the controller, the floor buttons lamp would go off by itself. This glitch is so far the most common and often happens when the elevator is about to perform a third trip after the doors have closed[4], but sometimes it may happens randomly[5]. Some elevator enthusiasts believes this glitch to be an anti nuisance feature.
    • Also when this glitch happens, the arrow on the floor indicator will not appear when the car stops, no matter if the floor buttons have been pressed again or not.
  • On some elevators with car call cancel feature, a car call often cannot be cancelled[4] especially when multiple car calls have been registered.
  • When a car call is cancelled while the doors are closing, the doors will reopens.
  • Sometimes the elevator went out of service itself without the building owner's knowing.

Trivia

  • There is both hall and car call cancel feature and it is possibly only available on the 3300 AP elevators as optional feature.
  • Some countries like the United Kingdom have banned the use of capacitive FI GL 100 Line buttons due to disability reason.
