Question about Razor E100 Electric Scooter

1 Answer

I have just purchaed a used E100 Electical Scooter from a private seller. I had my daughter push start it but won't take off, I looked underneath the scooter gave the back wheel a spin and it was spinning but when you put the scooter on the ground the wheel stops moving, the electricals seem to work but not sure why it won't take off when you push start it when my daughter is on it?

    Thanks for your reply. I gave a full overnight charge and tried it this morning with my daughter, she gave it a good push starts for a very long way but it still didn't work. The motor does kick in when you pick up the scooter off the ground and give the back wheel a push but when you put the scooter back on the ground the motor cuts off? please advise

    Thanks again. I spoken to the private seller, she said, her son said it was working ok before I bought it from them? I'll see if they will take it back and get my money back.

This scooter you have to be pushing it a certain speed before the electric motor will kick in. Also be sure it has a good charge before trying it. I know these have to be moving a certain speed before they will engage the motor. hope this helps have a wonderful evening.

    Well I have done some investigating into this issue and the news I have for you is not something you probably want to hear. Although my experience was the same as yours with the same scooter my some had that was left out to the weather I assumed this was why his died. But after my investigation on your behalf the news is not good these scooters only last about two mounths the batteries die from the charger overcharging the 24 volt batteries with a 41 volt ouput that fries the batteries and the motor switch. I am very sorry to tell you but you but a piece of junk that will cost more to repair than it is worth. You are welcome to do the research yourself and you will find the same results I have. i hate to be the bearer of bad news especially when it comes to a childs gift. I wish I could have given you better news.

    You are very welcome and again I wish I had better news for you.

Razor Scooter ground fOrce go cart wont go


The E100 is a Kick Start scooter, the Rear Wheel has to be Spun for it to start. This scooter will not start from a motionless position.

Could be the battery.
Put the Scooter on a block so the rear tire is raised. Remove the standing plate to reveal the battery compartment.
Charge the Unit completely

1. Using a multimeter measure the voltage across the batteries. If the voltage is below 20 volts batteries are dead - Replace batteries.
2. Now for a running test. Turn the throttle and spin the rear tire to preform a kick start. Still measuring the voltage. If the voltage is Below 20 volts or if the voltage drops quickly batteries are dead - Replace batteries.
3. If the voltage is remaining around 24 volts for a long period - then you could have connector problems, clean and tighten all connectors.
I use a fiberglass electronic cleaning brush, as contact cleaners leave residue that interfere with electrical connections.

The control module is simple and can be replaced with only a 24 volt relay without the kick start feature or Brake. If you want the brake then you can use two 24 volt relays still no Kick Start.

For those of you who know electrical, below is circuits I developed to replace the controller. This diagram will also give you a better understanding on the Razor circuit.

NOTE : This is not a schematic diagram of the Razor E100 Control Module. I designed this circuit. for my Great Nephew's Scooter.

1. The Brake is a normally closed switch that opens when you squeeze the Brake handle.
2. The throttle is two normally open switches that close when you turn the throttle.
3. The Kick Start circuit is described in the Diagram below.
4. The resistors values may need to be tweaked for best performance.

How to reset the razor E100 ?


There is a reset button by the on/ off toggle switch I believe. Also, the e100 needs to be pushed to about 2.5 mph before it will go on its own power.

Have an e100 razor electric scooter. it has not been used since I bought for a couple of years. I got a new e100 charger and tried to charge but I noticed that the charger's does not activate either red...


Most equipment running on rechargeable batteries have one thing in common: if you let the battery sit there for long periods of time without recharging, the charger is not made to bring the battery back up to spec. The battery pack, if it is still good, needs a "kick" or "boost" from some other strong supply to get it started.
The other solution would be to replace the battery pack all together. If you have a friend with a similar scooter, you can try your new charger on his scooter to see if it works. Hope this helps!

E100 scooter wont run. Battery fully charged, 24v across terminals. Motor runs fine when connected directly to battery power. On-off power switch, breaker switch, brake unit switch, accelerator all checked...


It is possible the new controller is defective, however just because the voltage is showing 24v it may not be outputting the correct amount of amps so don not rule out batteries before checking the following:
To test a battery you need to 'load test' so (with help) connect the battery directly to the motor when weight is on the scooter to see if it will still pull.
Please also remember that you do have to push the e100 to 3mph before starting (many users do not know or forget this step)

Charges and light comes and sounds like it engages but does not move


in order for the scooter to go you must already be walking with the scooter. so hold down the throttle and start to push (kick) the scooter.

Hi... My son hasnt used his Razor E100 for nearly a year as couldnt find the charger.. I finally found it and as soon as I plugged it in the plug was showing green light as that it was fully charged... When we turn the unit on it lights up but its dead... Where can I get the cheapest battery (and does it have 1 or 2)? Or you mention a reset button? Many Thanks...
