Question about Health & Beauty

1 Answer

I have a Quickey Apire M11 Power Wheelchair and I got caught in the rain. I let it dry out for 2 days, but all it would do is give a constantly 9 light flashing. Next day it worked for about an hour

Drying out for 2 days, check all wiring, pulling out the rods in back to disable motors so I could push it, return rods to normal position=no differance

    Funny, it works, it doesn't... Now when it doesn't work the speed lights flash! Go figure. It's in the shop, probably cost me both arms! Ha! (no legs-Vietnam).

    Actually the joystick controller box is completely vented all around on mine.

    Well, took it in ($65 to check it out). Turns out the batteries I bought for $120 a month and 6 days ago... were BAD! Wouldn't hold more than 8V after charging overnight! Asked for a refund. They asked for pictures of a multimeter checking each battery after a full charge, butr now tell me they can only ship me replacements!!! Why would I want new batteries from them that wear out in a month??? The new ones I got coat $130 each but are guaranteed for 3 years!!! Go figure. At least my purchase was guaranteed by GOOGLE. I guess that is my next step. I will update for those interested. Thanks for all the clues friends!

Check the controller for water. There is no drain hole in it so rain water can enter and short out the components that control the motors.

    I guess they got smart and vented it. They used to fill up with water abd destroy the electronics. $700 for mine Bien Hoa in 66 here.The rods release the brake, so if there was no difference with them in or out tells me the brake circuit is acting up.

    Did you keep your old batteries? If you did...try this. Discharge them and put them in the freezer over night. Let them come up to room temperature before charging. Now use a regular (not automatic) automotive battery charger and charge them up individually. This may take a half day or so depending on the amp rating of the charger. Check the voltage. If it's up to 11v or so then connect them up in series and use the 24v charger to top off the batteries. Trying to charge a depleated set of batteries with the 24v charger won't work.

Water got in the controller and shorted out a lot of components. It will have to be replaced or repaired. It's expensive either route you choose.

My wife and I were headed on vacation and got caught in a rain storm for a good part of the day. The next day was better, but we got caught in rain again. We thought luck was on our side when we finally...

Hi, Paul some bikes can handle moisture better than others depending on age and 99% of the ones that don't start after getting wet just need a little time to dry out then they are good to go. WD40 works wonders when sprayed in critical electronic areas, ie. coils, spark plugs, safety switches etc.

I was riding in the rain and now my Invacare power wheelchair isn't working properly. Is there a way to reset it, dry it out, or get it working properly again?

Sorry the joystick doesn't like rain or coffee or wet conditions and you will have to have it replaced. Next time carry a wally world bag with you and put it over the joystick to keep the moisture out. you can still steer and use the buttons through the bag Hope this helps

Caught inthe rain lights just blink

Not good- water and electronics don't mix! The problem will depend on how many lights are blinking. Here is a link for more information:

If the joystick got wet the only try would be to take it apart and try to dry it out. If that doesn't work you'll have to get a new joystick. If Medicare paid for the chair the you can have it repaired and Medicare will pay for most of the repair cost. Contact Repair Xpress at 1-877 581-3733 for info and more help

I was running in the rain and when I tryed to chrage it it didnt

I dropped my at&t phone in the lake a while back, I took the battery off and stuck onthe dash of my vehicle to allow the sun to bake the phone for a day or two. It still works to this day. Do not try to power up wet electronics, that's what burns thtme up. give a good drying before ever trying to charge. After a good drying you might try a new battery if drying fails. Good luck.
