Default scissor lift stops after going up 9 feet

scissor lift stops after going up 9 feet, it is supposed to go up for 16 foot

I ordered a scissor lift from you one year ago

It was working fine until two weeks ago It goes up for 9 feet, Then it stops.
I do not know what is the cause
Do I need to add more hydraulic fluid? If so then how to do it?

The lift is operated by 110 V
Attached is some pictures

I tried attaching pictures but it is asking me to enter URL

Sounds like a tilt sensor but, I would have someone come out and do the maintenance and "recertify" it unless is some kind old very old junkyard rescue.
If its worth keeping, its worth professional maintenance.

Make sure nothing is underneath the very bottom of lift so the guards can protrude toward ground (they are the length of lift on each side on bottom sides, and protrude when lift goes up) .

Check the blinker fluid. Happens to me all the time and I once thought about moving to Alabama, so maybe that's why.

Most, if not all, lifts have tilt sensors. These are to prevent you from going too high when parked on a slope and thus, tipping over.

They go bad sometimes and the lift won't go over a certain height.

I think the problem is with the hydraulic oil
I notices that the reservoir is low in oil
What type of oil I need to add?
Do I need to adjust anything else after adding the oil?
Anyway to post pictures here?

You need to read your owner’s manual. If you don’t have it, find it online.
