If you have 2 speeds, usually 8mph and 4mph there will be on the arm rest.
If you want to go slower there might be a dial on the rest which you can turndown. There are no online manuals for your NRS, so i hope this helps.

We have a hoverround that is not being used. We charge it frequently. But today we tried to move it and it is moving very slow. I know it was originally set to a slower setting. How can we speed it up?

Rev you would have to locate the provider that delivered the chair and ask if they can reprogram the chair for you. I don't remember the type of joystick the MPV 5 uses so I don't know what type of programmer would be needed to fix the upper speed setting. They could also check the batteries cause if they are 2-3 years old they could be a cause of the slower speed Hope this helps

Hello, changed a flat tire on hoverround and when i went to turn on to go....the lights were flashing on the left arm rest area?

Check the freewheel lever in the front of your chair If it is freewheel then thats the cause of the lights flashing other than that you don't give too much more info to be able to answer your problem Hope this helps

How can I get a manual for the Hoverround MPV5?

If the power chair was stored for a while, the batteries may have gone bad. There is a gel inside them that needs to be put on a current regularly or it will solidify. When you connect the charger, you get a green light because it senses the batteries are full; unfortunately they are full of crud, not power. Try replacing the batteries to see if that solves the issue. You can probably take them to an auto parts store or Interstate Batteries to have them volt tested. The type of battery you need is a U1, 12volt, 33amp and you will need 2 of them.
Good luck!

My hoverround got stuck and i was trying to get out and it shut off and now it will not turn back on

If one of the tires spun out, it may have cause a power surg/arc to one of the motors which caused the fuse to burn out. They are regular 10 amp car fuses, try replacing them to see if that solves the problem.

Have a hoverround mpv 4,do you charge with the controller on or off,when on i get a buzzing noise loud im thinking you charge when the controller is off need help thank you

Typically you will charge with the controller off, but it is not critical. The buzzing noise may be the fan on the charger, which is normal. Make sure the silver handle of the charger is fully inserted into the controller. If the light on the charger is on, you have kept the charger connected for 8-12 hours and still the batteries will not charge, there may be a problem with the batteries being bad and they need to be replaced.

I can not get the wheels to lock in the drive position on the Hoverround Teknique XHD

If you are lifting the manual brake levers up but they will not lock into place, there may be an issue with the motors. Check to see if the tires are leaning into or away from the center position, with can indicate a bent frame. If the axle is bent, the brakes will not engage and the motors and/or mounting brackets may have to be replaced.

Bought 3 yr.old MPV4 with dead batteries and flat tires. Can I put foam filled tires on the current rims, do it myself, and use the same rims? What size are the tires? where can I get a manual without...

You should be able to get batteries from the Company or a company that sells wheelchair batteries, as far as the tires, those type of wheelchair wheels are a lot smaller than standard wheels, I don't think you'd have much luck with that, they make tires that aren't foam filled, but are solid rubber wheels, and that would be more what you would need in that type of hoverround.. as for the manual, look online, go to their website, if not ask around. Good Luck
