Honestly I don't know if I can solve this problem, but, when do you get the buzzing sound, when your in motion? (in other words moving) what brand do you have? It shouldn't be making the noise unless you have the QLogic Controller that can make beeps when you move to a fuction... Let me know more...

You may have to put a few drops of machine oil on the motor shaft. There is a felt washer on both ends of the motor shaft that absorbs and stores the lubricant. It probably is dry.

Hi, Just replaced two batteries. Chair powers on but I just hear a click sound when I push the button to move chair. please help. thanks.


The fact that you just replaced the batteries indicates a battery problem that has been solved. Please make sure the new batteries are fully charged. The fact that the power wheelchair powers on is an indicator that the VSI controller (joystick) is working. When you move the joystick forward you will hear a click sound from the motors and electromagnetic brakes. The click is the brake being released by the electromagnetic solenoid. If you have a flash code on the controller and the chair does not move you can look up the flash code using the following link:
http://www.pgdt.com/scenter/diagnostics/diagvsi.html
This motor/brake problem is typical for the Aspire and can usually be traced to the large connector at the back of the power chair. Pull out to disconnect the 8 pin connector and disconnect the 3 pin molex plug. Inspect and clean with electronic contact cleaner the silver pins until they are shiny. Spray clean the plugs. Work the plug in and out to clean the inner contacts. If the chair now runs you have traced the problem to the main harness receptacle and the VSI controller plug. The only cost effective repair of the the main harness receptacle is to replace it. The VSI plug is can be cleaned several times before it needs to replaced or the controller rebuilt.
If you need to replace a motor/brake assembly you need to contact a qualified technician who can troubleshoot further with a PP1 programmer to read the fault code history log. The technician will also have a digital voltmeter to verify your motor/brake problem. In my experience, the motor/brakes can last up to 3 years depending on use. The wiring harnesses at the rear location are easily hit and are usually more problematic because of their location, collecting dirt, moisture, and corrosion. Hope this helps,

The wheelchair will only move when the charger is plugged in. Unplug and all lights are normal but no motor actuation. thank you fo4r your help


berry boy Not alot of information but when you say all lights are normal do you mean the battery level lights are all lit up and there are no flashes. Usually when this happens the battery level is too low to make the chair move. When you have the chair plugged up the charger gives enough power to make it move. If you have a digital voltmeter set it 200 vdc then plug the 2 test leads into the 2 outter charger port holes. You should be able to read the battery level and after a full charge should be reading 25-27 volts. Hope this helps

I think you have locked your controller, or put it in "sleep mode". Turn on the chair again and push the joystick forward, then to reverse, then forward again and release. It should fire up. Let us know if that worked.

Loud buzzing sound began on start up


It could be several things but the most likely are: Something is spinning around with the motor shaft. Unplug the motor and "blast" water through the vent holes to clear debris. Let it dry completely before returning to service. Something could be caught in the impeller. Remove the front end and check. Squeals, loud hums, heat and vibration are indications of bad bearings.

Manual wheelchair Hard to PUSH


Pull off the Big Wheels and see if you have Hair Wrapped around the Axel part of the wheel, sometimes when I used to have a manual wheelchair hair would wrap around it. If not, then it really could be your tires, especially if they have treads on them, you might have warn down the treads making it harder to push, so check both, if your treads are low, then you need new tires, you can either call the person who helped you get the chair, like a wheelchair Specialist or even try your local bike shop, I've gotten tires from them before, they aren't as good as the ones I get from my Wheelchair Specialist - Hudson Home Health Care, but they at the time were better than nothing.

Dryer makes a loud buzzing noise then quits working.


Sounds like the motor's done. That thing is probably the start-run switch. Not worth trying to fix on an old motor. I've found dryer motors to be fairly generic, you should be able to find a replacement. I use Repairclinic.com when I can't get parts locally.
