Hi what happening to the battery power indicator while this happens ?

if you are sure the batteries are okay , look at the connections to the rear axle, making sure they are a good clean connection, you be amazed the problems with those connectors...

1. Motor breaking down.. ( Resistance changing ), Brush less motor otherwise check the brushes...
2.Brake coming on so slowing the scooter down.
3.The output stage of the controller is breaking down....

Why did the oval black insert pot of my everstar slow cooker lose the entire bottom of the pot while cooking?


no reasonable explanation as it is very unusual
could have been cracked or a fault in manufacture
check for warranty and if covered take it back
if not buy a different brand

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.

Invacare meteor, keeps slowing down, then speeds up again, can you help.


usual cause of this is the throttle (wig-wag ) controll potentiometer has worn out.to test put the scooter against a wall and get a freind to lift up the rear of the scooter and put 2 large blocks of wood underneath it so the back wheels can rotate
carefully advance the throttle 1/2 way then with wheels turning.keep in same position and gently move the throttle lever up and down .if there is a lot of play and the speed varies drasticaly then pot replacement reqd .you can get a dealer to order the correct one or get one off the internett but when fittinf if thr pot is not set to exact center with multimeter scooter will not move and produce off center error code

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.

Hi. Did the machine used to operate properly in the past? Sometimes previous owners or technicians have changed the programme for owners for different uses. What you describe sounds like a faulty throttle pot ( Wig Wag ). I have changed many throttle pots for this reason.
Also check battery and motor connectors.
Do you have another switch on the machine for controlling the speed, such as an indoor/outdoor switch? Good luck. Neil.

My shoprider cobra loses speed when I am on top speed.


Hi. Does the machine do this more soon after removing the machine off the charger? When a mobility scooter is going down hill, the controller feeds the voltage generated by the motor back into the batteries. When I an testing machines here at the workshop, I have seen cases where 10 to 12 amps is going back into the batteries on a down hill run. If the batteries are fully charged or unable to take much current, the controller slows the scooter right down to limit the higher voltage generated.
It might pay to check the battery leads and connectors as well, and get the batteries tested.
While you are driving along, try moving the speed lever slowly up and down, not in and out as you normally use it. Sometimes a faulty speed pot ( wig wag ) will cause the speed to change.
Good luck. Neil.

hi, first you need to check the connections to the batteries then to the motor controller, and don't dismiss the speed pot, disconnect the speed pot and try a normal 5K pot inplace of it, if the scooters responds you find the problem just a case of getting the right speed pot. Check the freewheel switch, normally it located on the motor side.

Wiper Speed changes from slow to fast then back to slow without moving switch!


the reason for your wiper speed change is due to the rain sensor which controls the speed of your wipers,determined by how much rain is comming down.the rain sensor is located behind your rear view mirror.
