Hi, sounds like it's due a service , that should involve the brushes being inspected and replaced if required and making sure the brake is releasing okay...

Need more info then contact via my website...

SOURCE: I HAVE A CELEBRITY DX SCOOTER,

Hi John.
The problem could be a worn throttle pot ( wig wag ). Next time you are driving the scooter, try moving the ends of the speed lever slowly up and down, instead of in or out as you normally use it. If the throttle pot is worn, moving the lever this way will make the machine speed up or slow down.
Another cause might be a faulty battery lead connector or a faulty motor connector.
Good luck. Neil.

SOURCE: hi do you need to turn on key to charge up battery

No, you don't need to turn on the key to charge. Just plug in the charger and turn on the charger if there is an on/off switch on it. The charger indicator and the scooter meter will read full when the scooter is fully charged. Hope this helps.

I have a pride classic xl8 i will be go along at top speed and then for no apparent reason it starts to go slow then quick then slow


This could be something to do with the HI-LOW speed switch or the connections on it or back to the control unit. Check for loose connections first. If you have a meter, check the resistance across the Hi-LOW switch.

I have a 2002four wheel Legend Mobility scooter.


Hi. A lot of scooters have a seperate switch to select a high or low speed setting.
This switch is sometimes labeled indoor/ outdoor.
I have had a few scooters with a similar fault, and the wires that connect to the high/low switch have broken of the terminals on the rear of the switch.
It could also be a faulty speed control pot.
Check these and good luck. Neil.

The scooter runs but super slow, I purchased two brand new batteries but it continues with the same problem.


hi,

Is there any change speed when you change from 4mph to 8mph ?

if not first check the controller under the seat, normally a black box, make sure that all connection onto the controller are clean and tight,

Check the motor brushes, undo the screw caps carefully,these can be brittle , remove the brushes clean , make sure the brushes move freely within the motor,

Check the brake on the side the motor, this normally has a freewheel attached to it,

Remove the brake unit but do not disconnect the two wires, and test again is the brake clicking when you power away, if not it's not releasing hence the slow speed, check the brake for open or shorted connection.

Very slow go go scooter


hi, Sorry but those scooters are not stable at higher speeds,

the controller and battery fitted to those scooters cannot be made to give more power hence more speed, there is a number of reasons, the motor draws power from the controller and the controller gets what it requires from the battery, if you put on higher amps batteries , the scooter will go further not faster,

you would need to upgrade the motor to make it go faster, now the controllers are norrmally overrated so it could handle the extra power required, I would say it's impossible to upgrade the motor.

So another mobility scooter would be required,.

Don't get me wrong, there are lite scooters that go 8mph , I think TGA do one.
