first of all check for at least 6 volts from the battery and the charger, you can test this using a multimeter, if the battery doesn't show any volts, lift up one side of the plastic housing on the top and verify that both the positive and negative wires are plugged in

Train won't move. The sounds work great, and it used to move, but now it doesn't.


the sound runs from a different battery source, you'll need to remove the screw on the fron t of the seat and then lift the seat up and charge the battery with the supplied charger

I just bought a playskool ride on (around) train with tracks, and i was wondering if the 3 AAA batteries that go in the steering wheel are the only batteries or if there is another battery compartment. its...


Hi Erin, I have the same train and tracks I am getting ready to sell. Yes, there is a black plastic box type thing under the main part (seat) of the train. If I remember correctly, it snaps off the train and there is a place for "D" batteries to go. The box comes apart from the train and there is a lid that comes off the box which holds the batteries. I hope this helps. My kids had lots of un with this train. Good luck!

Brio remote control express doesn't move anymore


I wish I could help - I have exactly the same problem! Train opened Christmas Day, worked ok. Batteries seemed to gradually die 2-3 days later. Replaced all 3 sets of batteries twice, but nothing. Initially I got sounds, but nothing now.

Music will play but train will not move or do any other function


I'm not spending money for asking if there is a button to push to make the train go around the track! That is a simple "yes" or "no" answer! I can promise you that I will not buy another product from your company and will tell all my friends about my experience with your product!

Our playskool train will not move forward please could you advise me how to solve this - thanks dee


Had the same problem - the train at first stopped moving, but still rotated the balls, then later stopped rotating the balls at all. The music still played, though. I found the issue to be a small belt that transfers the motion from the electric motor to the gear system. The belt is tiny (think small rubber band) and lost tension, finally detaching from the system altogether. Getting to it is the difficult part... mind you that taking it apart carries a very high risk of breaking the plastic, so be prepared to scrap the whole thing and buy new.
To fix, start by removing the 7 outside screws to essentially split the train body in half. You'll have to pry off the large green wheel that's opposite the screws (right side of train) - this part carries the highest break risk. Be mindful of a spring (about 1/2 inch diameter) that may go flying - that one goes on the outside of the little inside wheel that moves the balls around.
Once the train is split in half, remove all screws you find, which will allow you to remove the mechanical sections, which includes the battery pack, electric motor, on/off switch, and gear system, including the wheel that moves the balls around. By the time this entire section is lifted off the train body, you'll see where the gears (they're a bit greasy) are attached to the motor towards the bottom of the gearbox. The gearbox itself has 3 or 4 screws to address that will reveal the entire gear system.
I had to take the lower (smaller) gears apart in order to replace the gear belt.
Replace the gear belt with a small rubber band (you'll likely need a small screwdriver to wrap it around the wheels), then re-assemble the gearbox and system. i recommend constantly running the toy with every step to make sure everything's still connected.
with a healthy rubber band/belt in place, the rest of the gear systems will fall into place with enough torque to drive both the train movement and the ball wheel.
good luck

New Bright Model #183 - how do I make the train go? The light works when the engine switch is in forward and reverse, but the train doesn't move (wheels do not turn). The music plays from the coal are -...


This train set is very particular and getting it to work each Christmas is a family tradition in frustration. First you must make sure that all the pieces of track are connected properly and that the track is perfectly symmetrical and flat. We double-check the battery positions every year and find one in wrong. There are + and - signs, but they're hard to see; use a flashlight. There is a black toggle switch below and behind the red stack that toggles forward (to make the train go forward) and backwards (reverse); straight out perpendicular to the train is the "stop" position. Also, you have to start at a stop/switch station. One other note: behind the red stack, there is a smaller black stack. If you turn this, you can make smoke come out of the stack. I think I remember someone suggesting a drop of cooking oil. Hope this helps!!! Hope you get it set up for Christmas!!!

Hi

Have you tried keep pressing the right hand button down. When you press the button down and hold the press, then the sounds are finished, the trains starts driving. When you release the button the train stops at once.

I cannot promise that this is the problem, but this is where mine was broken, and you may be able to fix yours this way.

I was able to remove the plastic around the tender and access the motor. Using alligator clips, I was able to connect the battery directly to the motor, bypassing the circuit board. The motor functioned, therefore the only component that seemed to be defective was the circuit board, located behind the speaker in the engine unit.

As far as I know, the only place to buy a replacement circuit board is from www.tigerimports.com. Search for part number MEVA0024. Cost is around $15 + shipping (around $6 or so).

I should be receiving this part by the end of the week and will report if it fixed the problem.

Thanks for using Fixya. If I didn't help your situation, please DO NOT label this advise as "inappropriate".
