Without seeing it, I would say it could be the Wig-Wag. This is the lever control you press to go forwards or backwards. It could be the potentiometer inside it breaking down. Also check all electrical connections are tight as this can give you similar problems.

SOURCE: I have a pride victory xl8. Problem - was running

All scooters have a protection system built in to prevent burning up the motor, and the user, should the scooter overheat. It sounds like yours overheated. If the temp. outside was warm to hot, and your weight is near the weight limit for the scooter, and you are taxing the motors over a hill, or unstable terrain, then the scooter goes into "limp home mode", or just enough to get you a bit aways, and then it will turn off. After a few minutes to cool off, it will go again, but shut down fairly quickly because it takes a spell to let the whole transaxle-motor assembly to get cool.

Check your weight, and anything else you may be carrying with you on the scooter. Check the terrain, and incline you are going against. Throttle down for all these occassions. If you overloaded the system at some point, then you may have overheated the brushes. Remove them (2) with a standard screwdriver and see if the copper coil is still flexible and springy. If not, replace it/them.

The damage may already be done, so it may need a new motor/transaxle assembly. An expensive proposition I'm afraid.

SOURCE: Mayfair freerider mobility scooter - keeps losing

ok, sounds like the speed pot,

Can you move the throttle lever up and down, try going along at a constant speed (losing power ?) then move the lever up & down ?

does it improve response ? if so replace the speed pot.

My mobility scooter keeps slowing down & nearly stops


There are many possible answers, we should narrow down the problem 1st. Make and Model of the scooter makes it easier to figure out your difficulties. Your brake maybe getting hung up and cause this if someone can check if the brake is getting hot when you slow down. That would mean your brake is the problem. If your batteries are loosing power and causing you to slow down that the batteries could be the issue. try my app to help you narrow down the problem. Scooter Doctor App

My 4s tga breeze keeps slowing down when I use it any ideas . Please help

hi, okay what happens to the battery indicator when this happens ?

Some points to note : the brake could be coming back on , check the brake by carefully touching it after use , take care because they can get very hot..if's it hot ,,, then it's not releasing fully or coming back on due to a brake issue, controller issue or simply a bad connection..

1. Battery & the charger.. Batteries may be fully charged however that does not mean they able to contain the load you place on them .

2. Brake...

3. a worn throttle pot... (WigWag, the go forward lever is attached to one )

At Worse a controller fault.

I offer a free controller test service..

I have got a tga breeze mobility scooter. I charged the batteries as it was not used for a while the display showed up grey put in the key. The indicators & lights etc didn't work but the scooter would...

If the scooter functions OK backwards & forwards and drives the distance you require, then i would hazard a guess at the PCB in the tiller head, paired with BDI (Battery Display Indicator).
Batteries on the Breeze are most likely 70-100ah, and ideally must be kept charged, either after use or at least once per week if you are not using it. Failing to do so will end up costing a lot of money :-)

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.
