Question about Amigo Rd 3 Wheel Scooter with 33AH Battery Pack

1 Answer

Scooter will run at speed than **** and bog down.

Amigo Feista 1 scooter will run at speed than hesitate and bog down, after releasing lever it will again get up to speed and do the same thing after a little while. Scooter has new batteries and we replaced the pot 8 months ago and we just replaced the speed controller.(top cover with electrics) and that did not solve the problem. Any info would be helpfull.

SOURCE: pride victory Scooter battery charged won't run

Its probably too late to give my opinion, but here goes anyway.
I had a similar problem with my mothers scooter and it turned out to be a faulty connection on the wires leading to the motor. I simply pulled the plastic connection apart, cleaned and lubricated the contacts, refitted the connection and all was well.

SOURCE: little gem mobility scooter brake not working properly

The throttle part has slip round, a way to test this is to put hte buggy in reverse slightly and it shoud stop, meaning that how much the throttle has slipped round. Take the top cover off and there should be a allen screen on the throttle stem, undo and readjust.

hi, if the freewheel lever is jammed which is located on the drive motor, take the rear cover off and make sure the lever is not bent,

you will see how the freewheel lever is mounted under normally a rubber cover on the side of the electric motor ,

Hi. 7 beeps is fault code for a faulty speed potentiometer. Might also be a broken wire on the pot or a faulty connector. Most times, a new pot will fix the problem.
Good luck. Neil.

Are you getting any kind of flash code on the tiller? It could be the throttle pot or speed control pot. If Medicare purxchased your scooter contact Repair Xpress at 1-877-581-3733 they have techs across the country and will bill Medicare. If Medicare didn't buy your scooter and you can afford it call them abnyway to have a tech check out the scooter for you Hope this helps

Hi John.
The problem could be a worn throttle pot ( wig wag ). Next time you are driving the scooter, try moving the ends of the speed lever slowly up and down, instead of in or out as you normally use it. If the throttle pot is worn, moving the lever this way will make the machine speed up or slow down.
Another cause might be a faulty battery lead connector or a faulty motor connector.
Good luck. Neil.

I have a milan mobility scooter,turn the key & it sounds a low

Hi. This sounds difficult. I have had a few scooters move slowly forward or in reverse, but not both. Normally if the speed pot ( wig wag ) is not exactly in the central position, they can do this.
It is possible for a scooter to have your problem, if the speed lever is binding or rubbing on the housing. Normally the lever is returned to the middle by a spring around the speed pot shaft. If this spring is loose or broken, then this could also cause the problem. Sometimes a small spot of oil or grease will help.
To check the speed lever is in the middle, slowly move the lever for forward untill you hear the brake solenoid release. Now release the lever and slowly pull it for reverse untill you hear the brake solenoid release. Make sure that the speed lever moves the same amount for forward as it does for reverse. If not adjust it with the key off.
If you get the machine to drive properly, then change the controller to see if it is OK.
As for the beeping, a lot of machines will go into an error mode if the speed lever is not in the central position when you turn the key on. This is a safety precausion.
Good luck. Neil.

medical advice needed...... my blood pressure averages from 160-191 for instance the reading i took a few minutes ago was 181/107 and pulse reading of 112 this isn't unusual. what should i do? was referred to a specialist and have had various testing but they seem to have lost more results then i've had back these tests include ecg blood pressure monitoring for 24hrs scan chest xray and a 24hr water sample test something to do with the andrenalin glands may have tumoursl. i have had high blood pressure for 2yrs that i know of and the drs at hospital are no closer to findig out what it is then the first day i went. they are testing by the illimination process. in meantime i'm receiving no medication to treat the blood pressure as im told in will interfere with testing. I've told them from the beginning i believe it's circulation related. i suffer from white finger in all fingers but i've been getting it in the summer. my ankles go from normal to can't get a shoe on in a matter of minutes but sitting down with feet up makes it worse whereas if i get shoes on walk dogs by time i'm back there down again in a matter of minutes. the drs have witnessed this as they said it normally takes a lot longer for swelling also when my bp is up i know as i feel different dependeing on how high it is i'm left confused blurred vision can't walk more the a few steps generally hazy which i put down to the high pressure. recently rthough with the cold weather i cannot go out of the house. if i do i have to layer up on clothing as if the cold gets to me it hurts a lot it can double me over the pain can be unbearable until i warm up wwhich normally would need a shower or bath to bring it back to normal and stop the pain. In my opinion these symptoms could easily all be linked to circulation would u not agree. I've put a complaint in about the hospital and the treatment i haven't been getting and expressed my concerns about my health as i'm running on one kidney also. I've recently had an appointment to see another specialist on the 9th feb and i'm having to redo all tests before then. As they are all incomplete according to hospital. Can u offer me any advice please. i'm a single parent with a daughter who has a form of autism who depends soley on me and i'm frightened that my heart isn't going to hold out much longer if they don't find out whats causing it or what it is. thanks
