Rather than repair the Waupaca defective elevators' components directly, allegedly Waupaca decided to find another solution. The company allegedly pushed their authorized dealers to increase the routine maintenance of their products in an effort to keep the Waupaca defective elevators from failing. However, this plan was ultimately unsuccessful as the maintenance procedure allegedly did not contain any explicit evaluation of the defective gearbox in the Waupaca defective elevators.
Their next solution for the Waupaca defective elevators was to push for the installation of an aftermarket brake device that would prevent the elevator cab from crashing if the system failed. However, this product was also faulty and allegedly did little to prevent harm. When Waupaca became aware of the danger, they issued a warning to their customers allegedly containing factually inaccurate information regarding the symptoms of a potential crash including falling unexpectedly to the bottom in these Waupaca defective elevators.
