SOURCE: battery power on mobility scooter

The Hand Control has probably bent in from use. ( Where she Pushes the throttle Control )
Grab a hold of it and bend it out towards you slightly
The part about the indicator going down when she moves and back up when she stops is normal

SOURCE: AXS Mobility scooter loses battery power quickly.

hi , two problems can cause this,

1. batteries are weak, is the charger ok ? just because it 's green does not mean the charger is ok, can you validate the charge, try some other batteries ?,

2. Brake be activated or on at all times,
The best way to prove this is to remove the brake mech from the side of the motor completey now try the scooter, if the problem goes away then check the resistance of the brake, is it open or shorted ?
If you feel the brake, batteries and charger are working ok then the controller must be activating the brake and this is the fault but please double check the voltage on the brake leads.

Regards
GeWiz.

SOURCE: Invacare Zoom 220 mobility scooter will not run

Hi. When the machine is on, does it display a flashing light or LED on the display for a fault code? Is the free-wheel lever switch operating correctly?
You might have a sticky brush in the motor. Take the brushes out and check their condition. If the brush caps are not tight enough then the current arc's on to the side of the brush, and it jams in the brush holder.
Check the resistance through the motor before touching the brushes. Check motor and battery connectors for continuity and any sign of heat or melted plastic. Check operation and resistance of the brake unit. Most controllers in mobility scooters are quite reliable, so always eliminate all other possibilities before looking at the controller. Good luck. Neil.

SOURCE: Scooter stops intermittenly

Hi. Does the machine stop suddenly, or does it slowly stop as it normally would? Does this happen on hills or slopes?
A lot of scooters have a self-resetting circuit breaker connected to the battery leads. If the machine draws to much current ( amps ) then the circuit breaker trips out. After a few minutes the circuit breaker will reset and you can continue.
This could mean that the circuit breaker is faulty or that the motor is drawing to much current, or is burnt out.
Some machines have a very light duty circuit breaker, and these can trip out often. I have changed many of these circuit breakers for this reason.
Check all your battery leads are secure and tight.
If it is still a problem, get a serviceman to check the motor current is what it should be.
Good luck. Neil.

My srtrider will only go for a few feet then comes to an abrupt stop its abit like the back wheels jam..but then it will go for another couple of feet then come to a stop again there are no warning lights...


If your batteries are running very low, this is the most likely source of your problems. 80% of my scooter repairs involve batteries. The fact that your scooter runs is a good thing. The fact that it runs only a few feet and gives you no error code when it stops indicates the electronics have no battery power to indicate a flash code. The back wheels jamming probably relates to a no power condition causing the brake to lock (it takes power to release the brake and turn the motor)
This scooter uses two U-1 batteries that last between 1 and 2 years. From your description, I would replace the batteries first and make any further determination of any problems, if any,after that. These batteries are available locally at a large discount (between $50 and $160 each) and can be installed with basic tools, saving you money on the labor charge.
Shop around for the best price. Charge the new batteries fully before use. Enjoy.
Hope this helps.

The motor or transaxil lock up and stop the


Hi. Sounds like the circuit breaker ( over load switch ) is tripping out. If you let it sit for a few minutes, does it start to work again? Does it stop when you are driving onthe flat ground, or when you drive up a slope.
I have had cases where this happens to scooters going up a slope, usually because the circuit breaker is rated to low. Sometimes a faulty or burn't out motor will cause this fault.

Also check that the brake solenoid ( free-wheel )is releasing properly. Can you push the scooter when the brake is released?
Good luck. Neil.
