Question about NRS Hoveround MPV 5 - Used Power Wheelchair

1 Answer

How can I get a manual for the Hoverround MPV5?

We don't know how the Hoveround MPV5 that was given to my wife should be operated. The 2 batteries were charged at a gas station because looks like the MPV5 charger is not workin but still it does not turn ON.

    Are there any blinking lights on the controller? How long has it been since the power chair was able to be operated properly? have you checked the fueses in the battery cover?

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!

How do you change batteries on hoveround mpv5 ?


Disconnect cables going from battery boxes to the control box. There is probably a catch that needs to be squeezed in, then pull and wigglt the connection block until it disengages. Release the straps over the battery boxes then remove batteries and covers. Lift up on the cover (you may need to push some cable back into the box) and put cover aside. Disconnect cables from batteries and attach to the new batteries. Same procedure, in reverse, gets you back to an operational MPV5.

My hoverround barely turns left and makes weird noises when it goes


This is almost certainly either bad motor brushes on the right motor, a bad right motor connection, or a bad right motor itself. Check the motor brushes, if the look good(good springs, no discoloring, etc.) Then you need a multimeter to check the motor connections to isolate the problem.

You will need to take it in for repair. 8 bar flash usually means you have a bad joystick/controller. They can sometimes send it in to the manufacturer to have it repaired. Find a reputable dealer and relay this info to them.
