Hi,

Is there any change speed when you change from 4mph to 8mph ?

if not first check the controller under the seat, normally a black box, make sure that all connection onto the controller are clean and tight,

Check the motor brushes, undo the screw caps carefully,these can be brittle , remove the brushes clean , make sure the brushes move freely within the motor,

Check the brake on the side the motor, this normally has a freewheel attached to it,

Remove the brake unit but do not disconnect the two wires, and test again is the brake clicking when you power away, if not it's not releasing hence the slow speed, check the brake for open or shorted connection.

Regards
GeWiz.

My electric scooter hesitates, then goes, hesitates, then goes without letting up on the throttle


Going and Slowing is usually a problem with the throttle pot. They are often easy to fix yourself with a bit of WD40 once you have found out where the throttle pot is on your machine. Sometimes they have to be replaced, but fortunately the part is quite cheap. You didn't say what brand your scooter is, but Pride scooters are known for throttle pot problems.

Most scooters have only a rheostat to control speed. Over time, the carbon will wear and cause erratic control.

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.

Scooter is running slow


Have the batteries tested with a load tester. Usually when it starts to move slow it means the batteries are going.
