Question about Golden Technologies Golden CompanioN II - 3 Wheel

1 Answer

My Golden Companion II scooter is fully charged & it won't go

Forward OR back.... around a week ago I started smelling some kind of an electric burning smell...no it won't go ANYWHERE
when I put it in "disengage"mode, it seizes up upon being pushed
I bought this new in February This is a new battery (as of May)
I'm really quite frustrated at how limited the time is for holding a charge

Hi.Sounds very much as if your brake unit has burnt out. If you bought the machine new in Feruary, then it is probably still under warranty.
Get your supplier to fix it for you.

When you say the charge is limited, how far do you travel? Also what sized batteries do you have in your machine? Bigger batteries mean you can travel further. Batteries last best if they are not run more than half flat while you are using the machine. You should work on half the distance that is printed in the pamphlet for the distance you can travel.
Do you always charge your batteries overnight after each use.
Hope this helps. Neil.

    I have the same problem and can get no answers of what is causing this problem. Mine as soon as you plug it back in with a min. it takes off again until it acts like the batteries are dead but they are not. You can't buy a new transaxel for it you have to take it to a dealer.

Sounds like the motor cables are in reverse at the controller. Check that the red is in the positive and the black wire is in the negative on the controller.

John count the number of flashes by the green light and it will be the fault code indicating the problem Your owners manual should list the fault codes to be able to determine what the problem is. Ie 4 blinks pause 4 blinks pause. The clicking you hear is the electric brakes being engaged. Hope this helps

Axle makes a noises going forward only sounds like a bad bushing


there is no bushing on my rear wheels axle albeit an older scooter...wheel runs metal to metal on the axle and so...remove wheel and clean an grease the axle an replace the wheel.... probably wouldn't hurt to run a greasy rag back and forth through the wheel a time or two too...Sometime next week. The Maintenance Dude here @ Big Muddy River Apartments will be correcting a dry rear wheel on my old ole Golden Companion II. I had just acquired the thing and almost immediately after I sat on it to take it for a spin. The left rear wheel started acting up. Lucky my power chair guy does scooter repair too, and he told me no bearings in the back wheels. Its metal to metal and removing the wheel an greasing the axle should take care of it, and I havt'a say that was really admirable of him cause he could have clipped me for a service call and a grease job.....the end

Suspect the charger is shot on a seldom used like new Companion II. The batteries are at 3 volts but the charger red light wont illuminate when plugged in. Green light comes on, but not the red. I did see...


MStrong The charger will not charge batteries that are reading that low Replace the batteries and try the charger again. Remember to always charge before use and never charge longer than 12-16 hours. Get into the habit of charging overnite on scooters used everyday and once a week on seldomly used scooters always sore the scooter fully charged and if storing for a longer time remove the batteries and store fully charged. ope this helps you

How long does it take to fully charge Golden Companion II bATTERIES?


Hi. Charging batteries is dependent on how far you travelled, the size of the battery, and the type of charger you have.
The best rule is to charge the batteries overnight after each use.
If your charger has an LED to show when the batteries are nearly full.
This LED is a guide only, and most batteries still need a few more hours of charging after the LED turns green.
Charging batteries is not like filling up a jug of water. Its a chemical reaction in a battery, and it takes time to charge them fully.
Good luck. Neil.

How long does it take to fully charge Companion II batteries?


Hi. Always charge your batteries overnight after each use. Do not charge your batteries for days or weeks at a time unless you have a good quality automatic charger.
Most 4 amp chargers, charge the batteries up to approx 28.5 volts, and will maintain this voltage forever if left on. This will eventually shorten the life of the batteries.
The Invacare 8 amp charger is a fully automatic charger. It will take the batteries up to about 28.5 volts, it will hold this voltage for a few hours, and then drop the voltage to 27.6 volts ( 13.8 volts across each battery ). These chargers can be left on for weeks at a time.
Good luck. Neil.
