Question about Invacare Pronto M51 Power Wheelchair
It seems that there has been a damage to few of the cables.There are always few unshielded cables in most of the motorized Invacare wheelchairs.
The only fix is to disamble the machine and then you need to fix the cables.This problem occurs when you use joystick or if you tap it. Because all the movement of the wheelchair is maintained by a set of cables.Any damage to that would cause a loud noise and later on you might face an issue with the movement of the chair ( if the cables are seriously damaged ).
I hope the above solution would be able to assist you in fixing the problem.
Thanks for using Fixya.

Powerchairs have electric brakes on the motor drives that automatically engage and disengage when the joystick is activated, or released. A solenoid "clicks-in" releasing the brake, then clicks back to lock the brake. This clicking should have been noticeable before you tried the bump, and it is normal. If it is clicking while the chair is in motion, this is a whole different animal. It could be caused by damage to the gear assembly, or to the electric motor, or to the coupler which connects the two. In this case, you should refer it to a qualified technicial for repair.
Usually, scraping the motor/gear assembly won't cause damage, unless you whack it real hard cracking the gear casing, the frame holding the assembly onto the chair, or bending an axle or wheel.
