I assume you are referring to the caster tire, not the drive tire. You will need to check to see if the rim is a split-rim or a solid rim. A split-rim will have 4 or more bolts holding the two halves of the rim together. If you have flat-free tires i.e., foam-filled solid tires, evidenced by the lack of a valve stem which is used to inflate non-flat-free tires (pneumatic), you would remove the wheel from the caster by rermoving the center bolt acting as the axle. Then remove the bolts holding the rims together. Reposition tire on top of one of the rim halves, then place the other rim half on top so that the bolt holes in the top one line up with the holes in the bottom one. You need to buy a couple of bolts that are about 3/4 in or more longer than the bolts that you removed, as you now must press the two halves back together and the stock bolts probably won't reach through. Put the two longer bolts in opposite of each other in two holes and tighten down. When the rims are pressed together, then put the stock bolts in, remove the two longer ones and replace with stock bolts. Place wheel back on the caster. If you have pneumatic tires (requiring air), make sure to always deflate the tire completely before attempting to loosen the bolts holding the rim-halves together. The same process is used for drive tire replacement. If the rims are not split rims, then it is easiest to buy an entire new wheel and tire as getting it back on is quite a chore requiring a press and lots of tequila! It's easy to break the rims. Good luck.

Check the cable leading from the joystick control to the base of the chair. You more than likely disconnected that cable.

I have a jazzy 1107 power wheel chair the back wheels are leaned outward i dont think the back wheels should be leaned outward i think this is what is causing me not be able to be able to turn properly....


Have some one check out that the section has not become loose or broken. IF the wheel rubbers are damaged then you will have trouble regardless of what you do. I consider it paramount that the chair is in top condition for your needs. Have the manufacturer's service agent fix it for you.

Golden compass power chair


Each wheel is run by a separate motor. This looks like either bad controller box, or bad motor. If it starts out working fine, then the one wheel stops after a short period of time, then it is probably a controller at fault. However if the motor is overheating due to mechanical binding such as a brake failure (the parking brake) or lacks lubrication causing excess power consumpltion, then the controller will shut down at some poiunt to avoid damaging itself and/or the motor. have a helper put the chair up on cememnt blocks, or woodne boxes etc, so you can observe it running. Listyen to the motor by doing left full and right full turns. The motors should be equally quiet and run at the exact same speeds. Dragging noises indicate a problem. be sure your parking brakes are disengaged. Now with the chair off, rotate eaach wheel by hand. They should need the same amount of force to move. if the bad wheel is harder to turn then it may need replacing or has bad brushes, brakes binding or in most cases dried up grease in the gearbox.

Jazzy select is swaying side to side when going forward like it has too much play in the joystick


Check your tire inflation and treads to make sure they can grip the floor/ground without slipping. Make sure that any keystock/keylock needed is installed on the axle, sometimes they slip out. Are your batteries fully charged and in good condition? Are you over the weight limit for the power chair?
Is there any noise or vibration coming from the power chair as you operate it? A grinding sound may indicate bad bearings in the caster wheels and cause problems in steering. A chirping sound may indicate a bad motor, they may be losing power and are not able to move the power chair evenly.
If your insurance purchased the power chair for you, they may also cover the repairs; contact them for information.
Good luck!

I tire on chair that went flat the wheel has a plastic cap for a valve stem how do I put air in the tires?


Rob if you can't find a air stem then you probably don't have air in the tire and it was a foamed filled tire. It doesn't happen often but the foan can break down and cause a "flat". Now look at the other wheel and see if it doesn't have a stem. The parts manual for your chair indicates a solid rubber rear tire so going flat shouldn't happen I would contact the dealer and ask for help with this one sorry I couldn't give you a precise answer. Good Luck

Chair not holding charge


It's your batteries. If they charge at all, your charger is okay, if not at all, new charger is in order.

Don't run your batteries down past half-disharge if you can avoid it. Charge daily or even more often if you are a road warrior, but try to keep them topped off. They don't have a memory.

Batteries aren't charging up. Chair want go.(Golden Compass)


That`s most likely your problem. When left uncharged for that long of a period,the batteries will discharge below 12 voltDC. The charger only recognizes 12 volts and up. So the charger can`t bring your batteries back up over 12 volts.  You will need to get them on a slow charger,like a car charger or have them replaced. If you know someone or have a voltmeter,set it on DC and check each battery.  If it is below 12 VDC,they need to be put on a slow charger or replaced.
