    Default Situation: Elevator can't go up

    Hi,

    I live in a condo with two elevators. One day, I walked in an elevator and pressed my floor but the elevator wouldn't go up.
    So I came up to the doorman and told him that the elevator can't go up. He asked to repeat, so I thought I put it wrongly.
    Can you please tell me phrases that would best describe this situation.

    Thanks,
    Alex.

    The elevator is stuck.
    The elevator is broken.
    The elevator won't move.
