Question about Health & Beauty
I've just bought a secondhand Prestige Explorer Compact 6. The previous owner doesn't know what's wrong with it and only charged me £25 for it so I took a chance. It looks in excellent condition but has been laid up for quite a long time. I know it needs new batteries, they are old and won't take a charge. The problem with it is that the scooter won't move in freewheel mode yet when I lift the rear of the vehicle off the ground the wheels turn quite freely. They move in opposite direction to each other which I've been told is normal. When I put it back on the ground it won't move. Help!!!

Hi. I have had a few scooters that have had this problem after sitting for a while. The brake lining is stuck to the body of the brake assembly. When the brake is energised by the controller, it can't release.
De-clutch the machine like you did, and try rocking the machine back and forth. If this doesn't work you might have to have a new brake assembly fitted.
The wheels turn in opposite directions, because the drive is through the differential unit in the rear axle. Even a car will do this if the driving axle is raised in the air.
I have also had a few cases of stuck motor brushes in these machines, but from your description, I would say it is the brake assembly.
Good luck. Neil.
