Ctm scooter slows down all by it self and stops but I still got full battery life it's like the breaks are coming one bye them selfs


Raj,
There are a number of causes for this. What is happening is an interruption in the signal going to the controller. One of the first things to check is if the throttle is self centering, the spring maybe broken, or more likely the throttle is sliding on the pot it is attached to. A wire maybe broken in the tiller harness. Loose connections to the motor can do this. Scooter Doctor App

Invacare meteor, keeps slowing down, then speeds up again, can you help.


usual cause of this is the throttle (wig-wag ) controll potentiometer has worn out.to test put the scooter against a wall and get a freind to lift up the rear of the scooter and put 2 large blocks of wood underneath it so the back wheels can rotate
carefully advance the throttle 1/2 way then with wheels turning.keep in same position and gently move the throttle lever up and down .if there is a lot of play and the speed varies drasticaly then pot replacement reqd .you can get a dealer to order the correct one or get one off the internett but when fittinf if thr pot is not set to exact center with multimeter scooter will not move and produce off center error code

Even on a full charge my classic xl8 slows down and speeds up again any sugestions please


Pride scooters are known for this problem, as I found out when it happened to mine.

You need to replace the Throttle Pot. Either take it to a mobility shop and let them do it or buy the part and do it yourself. It simply involves unscrewing the old one and screwing the new one into place, and there are diagrams to help you on the internet.

This throttle pot problem has happened to my Pride scooter three times already.

I HAVE A CELEBRITY DX SCOOTER, IT IS 4 YEARS OLD. I HAVE HAD NEW BATTERIES FITTED, BUT THIS LAST 3 MONTHS THE SCOOTER RUNS FROM NORMAL SPEED TO SLOW AND SLUGGISH THEN BACK TO NORMAL EVERY FEW MINUTES.CAN...


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.

My scooter sometimes seems to slow down for no reason on full power. It is like something it holding it back then all of a sudden it is working fine.


Hi. Could be a couple of faults. The throttle pot ( Wig Wag ) could be worn. While you are driving the machine, try moving the ends of the lever up or down slowly, ( not in and out as you usually do for driving ), and see if that makes the speed vary.
Another problem could be faulty battery or motor connectors. I have replaced or removed many battery connectors because of this. Also check battery or motor wirs where they connect to the controller.
If you feel unsure about checking the connectors, get a good serviceman to do it for you. Good luck. Neil.

New battery. hooked up correctly. But, scooter will still barely go in reverse super slow. forward speed slow .can throttle cable be problem/ when I push inside of speed lever it moves faster. pushing ends...


Hi. Did the machine used to operate properly in the past? Sometimes previous owners or technicians have changed the programme for owners for different uses. What you describe sounds like a faulty throttle pot ( Wig Wag ). I have changed many throttle pots for this reason.
Also check battery and motor connectors.
Do you have another switch on the machine for controlling the speed, such as an indoor/outdoor switch? Good luck. Neil.

My Pride Legend will slow down (barely move) after awhile of running. When it cools off, It will run ok again. What causes this?


The battery is probably overheating. Is this an original or older battery? Check the owner's manual for what kind of battery you should have and see if a replacement doesn't solve your problem.

Mayfair freerider mobility scooter - keeps losing power, especially on slow speed


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.

Regards
GeWiz.

Battery power on mobility scooter


Most scooters show a drop on the battery level meter when in use, as long as it is`nt slowing down it should`nt be a prob. I mean,when you engage the throttle you ARE putting a load on the batteries,so it`s only par for the course that the indicator would drop a bit.

Rally PRIDE 3-WHEEL SCOOTER


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