Question about Pride Mobility Products Casual CL30KD Lift Chair Chestnut

2 Answers

Chair will not go up or down

I hear a clicking sound in the control box when the paddle switch is pushed up or down but the motor does not try to operate.  The up or down operation was sluggish or weak for a while and then operated okay for a while. This sluggish operation repeated a couple of more times but now the chair will not move at all.  I checked the 9 volt batteries and they are okay.

The clicking is the mechanical part of the switch, but the electrical part may still be bad. In all the chairs I have serviced, it has always been the switch. The switch itself goes for about $25 plus labor to change it, and the whole control unit retails for about $100. the best test is to take the controller apart and short out the center wire to either side and check the chair for movement.

The solution that was posted, that the hand switch probably was bad, was correct.  I tested the chair by shorting across the switch leads as suggested and the chair worked.  In took the switch apart and cleaned the contacts and the chair now works as intended.  I really appreciate the help.

Lights flashing when turned on, replaced batteries,fuse, in drive position

the amount of flashing lights will give you a Flash code. If the the lights are going up and down, you may have a locked joystick. one method is to turn on and (within 10 sec.) push the horn button twice. Push the power button then push the joystick forward until there is a beep sound then back until you hear a beep sound to unlock.

Manual brake switch

Chair motors sometimes do not have brake switches. It relies on the gear ratio keeping the chair from moving while not under power. The freewheel lever disconnects the gear box from the motor.

Blinking yellow wrench light on pride jazzy 614 HD

Your version has a Dynamic Controls model controller and joystick.
Unplug the charger and engage the motor/brake lever so the chair is no longer in free-wheel mode (con't push by hand)
Turn the chair off, wait 5 seconds, turn the chair back.
If chair still does not run and your wrench is flashing you have a problem. Count the wrench flashes - the flash count indicates the error detected. 3, 4, 5, and 6 flashes indicate and error with the motors.
3=Left motor fault
4=Right motor fault
5=Left brake fault (may not be engaged)
6=Right brake fault (may not be engaged)
Any other fault code usually means the electronics or wiring is bad and not worth fixing.

An 8 Bar Flash on the controller of a Teknique FWB indicates: Possible Control System Trip
A control system trip is indicated. Make sure that all connections are secure. This means that one of the wires attached to the junction box, or the umbillical, may have come disconnected.

Is your power chair equipped with an optional power seat lift? If not, raising or lowering the seat will not restore function to the power chair. Have you tried doing a brake reset just to see if that will help? The manual brake levers are under the bottom front of the chair base; turn off the controller, pull the levers down then push them back up until the pop into place. This reset will clear many issues.

If you are able to check the wiring for the junction box and wish to remove the seat, you can do so, but the Teknique series is terribly difficult for the average end-user to work on and is recommended that a Hoveround Technician do it. Hoveround will not even ship batteries for self-installation to owners of any of the Teknique power chairs because they are such a pain to work on. The seat must be fully removed to gain access to the batteries under the motor cover and most power chair owners do not posses the kind of strength and dexterity needed to do it.

The seat post can be removed by removing a bolt underneath the seat, you will also need to unclip the black umbilical cord leading from the controller to the motor cover so that you do not yank it out when you remove the seat. The motor/battery cover can then be unbolted to allow you access to the batteries and junction box. I cannot give you details on how to do this, because as a Hoveround Tech Support Rep, we are instructed to dispatch a technician for the customer's safety and I have never done it myself or even seen it done.

If your Hoveround was purchased via your Insurance, they will most likely pay for the repair, but it may take time to schedule the appointment if the Insurance requires documentation or verification before allow the repair to take place. If you are in need of additional assistance, please contact Hoveround Tech Support at 800-964-6837 on Wednesdays or Thursdays when the call volume is lower. It's worth a shot.

Good luck!

What would cause my lift chair to move extremely slowly and stop altogether?

I am going to say the motor or the control switch have gone bad. Most of these chairs are made without relays to control the motor. A switch will wear out due to the current goin across the contacts if a relay is not used. Check the switch in the control. If this is helpful, please leave feedback. Thanks,SnugglePants

Switch Wireing Diagram

The motor operates on low voltage DC current Robert. You will have a negative and a positive, like a car. The center connector is a common, meaning that it will be connecting to the motor whenever you switch is activated to make it go, and the other two are positive and negative to control either up or down. These should be color coded red and black and will go to the outside connectors and the remaining wire will go to the center common connection. Hook it up and then test the chair lift button. If it doesn't lift, you need to reverse the two outside wires for correct polarity, or just use the switch controls opposite; up for down, down for up.
