Can’t electricians work on elevators up north?
Only the power to them can be done by electricians. Elevator mechanics do the rest.

I had a call where there was no power to the elevator. Found 2 blown 90 amp fuses. Fuses do not blow without reason very often so I expected something wrong with the elevator equipment. I Supplied 3 new fuses but told them I won’t energize my side unless I could first disconnect the elevator equipment (the load) but it is their equipment so they need to do it.
elevator guy was coming later and told them all he needed was the fuses and I could leave.

Couple hours later they call and say the elevator guy energized, the motor blew up and the elevator guy was trying to blame me. Good thing I did all the work with their maintenance watching/ helping and I had documentation of what I did.
