    The lift/elevator is/was stuck.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    The verb "to stick" is an irregular verb, stick, stuck, stuck. "Stuck is the past and past participle of the verb, "stucked" doesn't exist.
