Have the controller looked at . The speed knob may be the culprit too.

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.

Sounds like you have a bad throttle pot. You`ll need to check the resistance on it or take it to a dealer.

Hi, That sounds like the speed pot is faulty,

When going along push the lever in the upwards direction as well as forward , does it speed up ? does it response ? if so then that's the problem.

There could be a issue with the metal key making a good contact when inserted.

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.

Tim, the batteries on my Legend XL gave out last Fall, so I replaced them with two new recommended batteries, and now it will only run in top speed for the first hundred feet, then it slows down to a


If it is actually speed pot related, then removing the speed pot
and spraying down the shaft of the speed pot (from the top)
with electronic contact cleaner, may help to make clean
the pot resistive element and that should fix that. If it's
not a speed pot issue and happened after replacement of
the batteries, assuming they are 35/37 AH AGM batteries,
check the batteries for current delivery at the rated current.
It could be just a battery that is not providing the rated current
to the motor after 50 feet.

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....

Panther lx4 runs irregularly .batteries are brand new. ride well for 10 minutes after it starts to slow down then accelerate then slow down etc...


Most scooters have only a rheostat to control speed. Over time, the carbon will wear and cause erratic control.

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.

Had a similar problem with my shoprider te888's there are 2 possible solutions that I have found.
1. dirt had been picked up in the pad that acts as a brake, causeing the motor to drag and speed up, found this after almost burning my hand on end of motor with brake. disassembling the brake and cleaning with an alchohol soultion fixed this one.
2. Loose wire to battery post, or corrosion on battery connectors can cause this too. found loose terminal on battery by tightening nut where wire attached.drove me nuts for days till I decided to tighten with wrench rather than finger tight... On my scooter it would slow down do to excessive current draw because of bad connection and controller would shutdown, which meant ubrut stop. Showed up mainly when climbing long grade up driveway.
hope this helps
