    This sounds like a classic bearing problem. When there is no load on the wheels, they will turn fine, when you add weight to the chair by sitting in it, this is when the problem comes back. Get with your local Tech and have them replace the castor/fork bearings. I always carry a set of these on my truck because it is a common problem.

Have you completely disengaged the wheel locks? Check for worn wheel bearings.

Yes, the main controller module can be very expensive to replace. I would take it to a reputable dealer if the battery replacement does not help.

Hi. your problem could be a couple of faults. Have you checked that both tyres have the same pressure in them? Problem could also be a faulty motor or brake unit. When these motors have done a few years work they build up carbon and copper dust from the brushes and the commutator. the motors can be tested for this if you find a clever serviceman. The motors should also be tested to see if they are both drawing the same current ( amps ) when in use. In answer to your last question, the answer is probably no. Good luck. Neil.

What the lights moving right to left on jazzy select 6 power chair


If you are moving as soon as you turn on the chair, the lights will move from right to left. Try waiting a few seconds and see if the lights stop moving. If they do stop, then you can move forward. Hope this helps.

What does my tss300 power indicater keep flashing left to right but won't move. batteries are fully charged and reset is set?


The chair is more than likely in free wheel. There are two levers under front of the seat (yellow). Pulling them forward should place the chair in freewheel and pushing the levers back should place the chair in drive. Once in drive mode, turn power on to reset joystick.

How to move dead electric wheel chair


There are two levers, one for each motor, you have two. Depending on model either right under your knees (M51) usually, or under the rear, near the back casters. Typically black rubber on a metal rod. Move both in opposite directions, either both out, both in, or some types, both up, or both down. Sometimes they need wiggling, turn the chair OFF then try moving it in each position, (both in or both out). Google the manufacturer, your case invacare, they have detailed instructions there.

Sounds like you need to replace the left electric brake. The brake is on the opposite end of the motor-gear assembly from the motor. Remove the screws holding the brake on to the gear assembly, unplug it and replace with new brake.

How to push the jazzy wheel chair when power fails''


There are two levers located on the base of the chair on the left and right sides. Depending on the model, they will be located on top of the base on the front section of the chair base, or on the rear or on the lower sides. Most rotate 90 degrees to disengage the gears so you can manually push the chair. Others are moved up and down, or in and out. Return them to the locked position when done.
