You would probably have to contact a service tech for the product. This is usually a service call item unless the chair still works and the arm is just broken. You might be able to just get the arm. Some manufacturers require the whole assy to be replaced. That would require a tech unless you want to do the repair yourself. The manufacturer would not warrantee the part if you broke or damaged it while doing the repair yourself. They would for a certified tech.

Just beeps when wig wag pulled but wont move

It could be the Wig-Wag needs replacing. But are there any fault bleeps or flashing lights. If so count how many and check in the trouble shooting guide of your user manual to tell you what the fault is.

My scooter shut down as I go forward and power indicating lever goes haywire?

Sounds like Wig-Wag control needs replacing. Common fault.
You will need to take to a service centre for replacement and setting up for safety reasons.

Why is my Invacare leo mobility scooter stopping and starting

It could be the wig-wag at fault and need replacing. A loose or bad connection on batteries or drive system. Speed pot worn.

Are the batteries old? May need load testing.

My rascle388xl mobility scooter keeps stopping and there is a bleep noise coming from the back, can you help please

Sounds like the wig-wag is at fault. That's the lever you push to go forwards or backwards. if the lever is very loose, it needs replacing.

Why when mobility scooter not moving when engaged but when disengaged moving slightly

The unit is not made for "medical approved" market and does not have a POST (Power On Self Test) to confirm wig-wag (throttle) is in neutral when it first turns on. SOLUTION: Put the scooter up on blocks so the drive wheels are off the ground. With the SPEED KNOB turned fully clockwise, adjust the wig-wag (throttle) so the cart will not run and the brake is engaged when the cart is in neutral. There are usually Allen screws in the wig-wag handle that can be loosened and re-tightened once the wig-wag pot is properly centered for neutral.

What does the 7 beep code mean on my Pride Victory 10 scooter mean when I turn the key on ?

This is a speed pot or throttle control problem (wig-wag) have you had some speed issues with the scooter before this happened, if so the wig-wag needs replacing. Make sure it is in the centre position at rest and switch the scooter on again.

Amigo problem

I had this problem similarly on an older trike I owned and still do.
If it stutters as it goes forwards, there is probably an intermittent connection between the wig-wag (the part you push to make the scooter go) and the rest of the electronics. It could be as simple as a loose wire or the whole wig-wag might need replacing. I'd recommend you take the scooter to your local dealer and have them reproduce the exact problem you're having and hopefully they'll be able to recommend a fix.

Is it possible to reverse the drive lever on the invacare lynx scooter as my dad only has use of left arm. At the moment he has to push lever towards him very awkwardly. It would be much easier to simply...

Hi Mark.

Reversing the polarity:There are 3 wires on the Wig Wag Assembly. (reverse the wig-wag function) simply de-solder the 2 outer wires & swap their position & re-solder.I would seek a price for doing the job from an approved scooter repairer,unless you are comfortable doing the job yourself.I hope this has helped,Colin
