SOURCE: Have Zoom 220 HMV 3 wheel scooter. Charged battery

It is possible the the battery could be damaged after being stored for that length of time. If it was wasn't completely charged before storage, or if it was exposed to extreme temperatures (even for a short amount of time) you may need to find a replacement battery. should have the battery you need.

SOURCE: The battery takes a charge, but will not power scooter

This scooter require two batteries, not one. It is usually a good idea to replace both batteries at the same time, even though one is obviously bad, and the other "seems" okay. These 12 volt DC batteries (VDC) work in tandem to produce the 24 volts that the scooter operates on. In a perfect world, they would both live a long and happy life, but reality is that some die young, others old. Since they are joined together, the one that's going out saps the life out of the other one, so take a bullet and replace both batteries. Make sure you completely charge the scooter when you get the new ones in. Verify that your charger is working properly. To properly charge the 24 VDC system, the chargers have to have an output of about 26-28VDC. The output must be higher than the rated voltage of the two batteries put together to charge. While you have the shell off the scooter, you can see if the charger is working by measuring across the terminal on each battery with the charger off. Note the meter reading. It should be 12-13 VDC. Put it on the charger and retake the reading, and each battery should show an increase in the voltage due to the boost from the charger. After three hours, each battery should show about a 13.5 VDC reading which should hold above 12 for a good 8-10 miles. Always charge your batteries overnight, and if not in use, disconnect them completely with a full charge on the batteries.

SOURCE: I have purchased new batteries for my mobility

The control seems to be the issue. I have rewired so many scooters. When you have power and it wont go, it is usually the control. If you cannot afford the part right away, you can rewire it or have it rewired direct

Does this contactor switch, means that the broiler element stays on when you...

If you have ever experienced your electric oven not shutting off, then you know what it is like to have the oven overheat. It can be a very scary experience. If this happens to you the only thing that will turn it off is unplugging it from the wall outlet or turning off the circuit breaker. Either one of these actions will totally turn off the power to the oven. This will make sure that the oven will no longer heat.

Now, the question is. What happened inside your oven to cause this problem? The problem is with a device called a contactor. This is just a very heavy duty switch that turns the current on and off to the heating element in your oven. Every time this switch opens and closes a small spark or arc happens. Every time this spark happens a small piece of the surface area is melted. After this happens thousands of times the surface of the contactor becomes very rough and the two surfaces do not connect very well. When this happens the surface becomes hot enough to melt a large area of the surface. This melted surface then “welds” together. Now the contacts cannot pull back apart and your oven is on continuously.

The only fix for this problem is to replace the contactor. This is not a hard task and can be done by most handy persons. Just make sure that you have the correct replacement part and that all the power is removed from the stove/range/oven before you attempt to replace it.

If this problem does happen to your oven and you did not realize it for a long time, you should also expect to have other problems after you fix this problem. The excessive heat will cause other problems such as burnt wires, terminals, burnt fuses, and a number of other problems that would be heat related.

My Toshiba Laptop Satellite Pro computer is about 7yrs old.

Yes., stop using it and have to backed up to a new drive as quickly as possible. This is what Toshiba drives do right before they die.

Poor cleaning leaving deposits,dishes feel dirty

The problem for the spots is hard water. There is a new product out at that solves this problem once and for all. It is a small filter that goes under the sink and filters out the hard minerals that cause these spots from the water before they enter the dishwasher. It is very affordable (like 70 bucks) and even has a money back guarantee. After just one load you will be amazed how your dishes look.
