Do the casters swivel? If not, make them loose.
Are the tires properly inflated? If not, inflate them.
Does the silver post part of the joystick move up and down at all (if it does it's shot)
Has it been exposed to outside moisture? If so your motor brake may be ceased and needs to be disassembled and cleaned.
Hope this helped.

Hoveround won't move.


Double check to be sure drive levers are fully engaged. Go down and up a few times. If problem persists have Hoveround come and check it out. One of the drive motors may have shorted out when you continued driving with gravel in the wheel.

How do you get the seat too swival on my mvp-4 hoveround power chair


There should be a lever under the seat, left side near the rear. Push the lever toward the rear of the chair to unlock the position. You may require some lubricant, WD-40, if it is stuck.

How do you get the seat too swival on my mvp-4 hoveround power chair


Hoveround manual:
Took the answer right from the manual. If you would like a digital copy of the manual, the link is posted below.
[The swivel seat permits the seat to pivot from the forward facing position through 90 degrees in either the left or right directions. The seat will lock in each of the forward, left and right facing positions. This feature is provided to make side transferring easier. The swivel release lever is mounted on the left side in the standard
position]

My uncle left my hoveround chair out in the rain is this the end of my chair? when i plug in the charger the light on the charger lights up green but the chair wont come on


Angel the charger light should only turn green when the chair is fully charged. If you know the chair isn't fully charged then there is a problem with the charging system. if the circuit board in the joystick got wet then that is a serious problem. If you have a voltmeter you can check the battery voltage thru the charging port located under the front of your joystick Set the meter to 200 volts dc and plug the leads into the 2 outter holes of the charger port. Fully charged you should read 27-30 volts if you aren't getting any reading then the batteries are completly dead or there is a problem with the charging circuit (the reason you are getting a green light on the charger) The joystick will have to be replaced sorry If Medicare paid for your chair then they will pay 80% of the repair costs to get your chair working again If they did contact Roadrunner Mobility @ 1-800-467-2668 to get it fixed thru Medicare Hope this helps

The speed control light goes back and fourth on the console.


If the lights are chasing left to right then you are in inhibit mode meaning a charger is attached or there is a problem in the joystick with the inhibit functio. Right to left chasing I think means you are in freewheel. Turn the Power off and reset the levers in front on the chair then turn the power back on and hope the lights are steady and the chair will work. If this doesn't do it maybe you are in lockout mode. If you have the manual for this chair it should explain how to get out of "lockout". If not try turning the power on and within 10 seconds push the joystick straight forward and hold until you hear a beep then immediately move the joystick to the rear and hold until you hear another beep then release joystick to the center. This should get it out of "lockout" Hope this helps!!! Of course you could always call Hoveround and ask for tech support to help with this. Checkout their website for phone number Hoveround.com

You will need tie downs to the power chair. It is a metal piece the fits over the chair post and sits under the seat and had two metal loops to hook on to. The Hoveround field technician will install it for you.You need to order the tie downs from Hoveround, your insurance will most likely NOT cover the cost.

Hoveround steering


You may want to check the bearings in the casters, that can cause a scrubbing noise and cause the chair to not turn well.

If there is a chirping noise, that may indicate a motor failure. There is a left and right motor, so if one is not working well, it can cause the power chair to not drive straight.
