Question about Jet 3 Ultra Power Chair

1 Answer

Jet 3 Ultra won't charge

The batteries charged fine last month. For some reason when we need it this month the batteries won't charge. The ammeter never registers above 0 after charging. The power lights will come on but when removed from the charger the chair won't turn on.

Any ideas why it quit? where I can find a repair? I have a problem with the chair not turning on after charging. The yellow lights on the botton line flash but the chair will not do anything. no dealer will help me.

Indeed, you need to find a repair shop. Try a google search for power chair repair, or ask your local hospital or if you can find one a power chair store. Most likely, you have a mechanical failure of the wiring, the battery themselves, or corrosion on the battery posts. Since the chair lights up when the charger is in, it is unlikely that the charger is broken. You may have a failure of the controller board, but that is also unlikely. And batteries do not usually suddenly fail completely; they typically fail slowly, losing the ability to completely charge.

I assume that you did not see a great deal of fluid leaking out of the battery container; you might look in the container and check to see if a battery is cracked or missing fluid.

You can find the Fuse behind the foot rest. Take the pin located under the foot rest, and the casing will come off exposing the fuse.

Does the jet 3 ultra need to be plugged in when not in use


You should charge the batteries overnight every day you use it and every few days if not using to get the most life. If it is not going to be used for weeks or months you should charge the batteries then either remove or unplug the batteries from the main control box if possible.

I have a waterpik ultra cordless dental water jet that is 15 months old and will not hold a charge.


Contact the manufacturer for a replacement product, if it is not holding a charge the battery is dead. which is a defect in the product. Nothing else you can do.

Jassy 1103, will not start charging the battery.\r...


the 1103 uses an onboard charger. Charger's life span is about 3 years; some fail in 6 months, some in 6 years keep in mind. You can charge the 1103 using an offboard charger which are available for about $50.00 on Ebay. Search for electric wheelchair charger. You want one that has a 4 to 6 amp rating.

The offboard charger has a 3-prong connector on one end and the other plugs into a grounded wall outlet. Plug the charger into an outlet and the three prong connector into the female three prong connector located at the bottom front of the joystick. Give it a good overnight charge and it should be back up to snuff in the morning.
