Question about Shoprider Sprinter XL4
I have a shoprider sprinter xl4. It has been laid up for about 4 months.
Have charged the batteries but all we get is a click from the rear like a relay switching in.
Have pushed the circut breaker but iI don't think it had tripped.
The graph shows that the battery are fully charged but I wonder if this is a false reading
It was working perfectly before its rest. The scotter was not touched in the time it was laid up HELP PLEASE
Hi. Sounds to me as if you have a sticky carbon brush in the motor. Each brushe is held in the motor by small black plastic or bakealite cap that screw in the outside or the brush holders. If these caps are not tight enough then the brush or the spring will arc from the side of the brush holder. This causes the brush to become jamed, and does not contact with the commutator on the armature.
You need to remove the brushes, check that they slide freely in the brush holders, fit new springs if neccessary, and reassemble. If the brushes are too tight, the file very carefully on the sides to allow them to move freely. Do not tighten the black plastic caps too hard or they will break, but they have to be snug. Be carefull.
Good luck. Neil.
