Tip & How-To about Health & Beauty

Helpful Information when posting problems ith power chairs, scooters or lift chairs

If you are having problems with a power chair, mobility scooter or lift chair Give as much information as you can. Did Medicare pay for the mobility product? How old is the product? How old are the batteries? When you are getting flashing lights on the battery level indicator or light on scooter console. Count the number of flashes ie: 4 flashes pause 4 flashes pause etc. If the lights are scrolling are they moving right to left or left to right? As much info as you can give will help in telling what problem you are having and easier to help if possible.

In problems with lift chairs does to chair go up but not down? Will the chair move up or down at all? Do you have a red light visible on your transformer that is plugged into the wall socket?

I have a quickie electric wheelchair. The right axle was locked up. I turned the power on and now all I get is a flashing light. The batteries are new and fully charged. What could the issue be? The home medical supply company says medicare will not pay for repairs.

The right motor will need to be replaced. What reason did they give why Meduicare wouldn't pay for repair If the Aspire is your only chair then Medicare will pay. If you have received a new chair since the Aspire then Medicare will only pay for repair to the newer chair. You can contact a repair service other than the home Medical to get the chair fixed. You can contact Roadrunner Mobility @ 1-800-467-2668 for repair Hope this helps you

My Jet 3 has new batteries and they fully charge. When I am outside of the house the chair just cuts off like you turned of a switch. Leave be a while and it runs again. when you push reset button after it stops three red bars blink.

Alvin you have a left motor problem and it could be a loose connection Check that the left motor connector is tight and that if you move it the lights blink then there is a problem with the wiring to the left motor. If Medicare paid for your chair then they will pay for 80% of the repair costs contact your provider to see if they will repair it or contact a repair service like Roadrunner Mobility @ 1-800-467-2668 Hope this helps

put new batteries on and it wont move just flashes lights 4 times and then does nothing

Jesse the 4 flashes indicate a right motor problem. If Medicare bought your chair then they will pay for most of the repair cost. You can contact Repair Express @ 1-877-581-3733 or Roadrunner Mobility @ 1-800-467-2668 if Medicare paid for your chair. They will pick up your chair give you a loaner and return your chair repaired. If not then you will have to pay for the motor yourself and you can contact them to do a self pay repair. Hope this helps

This jazzy Select 6 chair battery light keeps flashing 7 times and will not function.

alaker the 7 flashes indicate a joystick problem. Make sure that the joystick is centered before you turn the chair on. If it is centered and you still get the flashes then there is a problem that can only be fixed by a new joystick. Sorry for the bad news. Did Medicare pay for your chair? If they did then they will pay most of the replacement costs. Check with the provider that sold you the chair or with Roadrunner Mobility (On the web) to get it repaired Hope this helps
