Question about Electric Health & Beauty

1 Answer

My husband's powered wheelchair has not been used for sometime due to illness. I had charged it up without using it, but the last time the power appears to be going through the charger -green light on, but nothing to the chair. Has the battery died? Both the battery and cahrger are just 1 year old.

Nick yes I would say that the batteries are too low for the charger to pick up and charge thats why you are getting the green light. If Medicare purchased the chair then they will pay for repair you can contact the provider that sold you the chair and ask them to come out and repair the chair or you can call Repair Xpress @ 1-877-581-3733 or Roadrunner Mobility @ 1-800-467-2668 to have it repaired Hope this helps you

Only the red light comes on jazzy select charger


Batteries must be stored on a full charge. For extended periods they should be disconnected. If your batteries are flat/dead the charger will not attempt to charge them. You should remove your batteries and check and try to charge them individually. Sometimes they will come alive, must of the time they won't. Charge them individually with a 12 volt 2 amp charger - no higher; or in series with a 24 volt 4 amp charger.

I had my wheel chair in storage for about an year, I have attempted to charge but when I disconnect the joy stick blinks yellow for low battery...How do I determine if both batteries are bad? If so do I...


Hi.Sounds like your batteries have sulphated plates, this happens when they sit for too long without being used. Your machine is a 24 volt system, so it needs both batteries to be working.You might be able to get a bit more life out of the batteries.
Try removing both batteries from the machine and connecting a light bulb across each battery and discharging them until they are flat.
Then using a 12 volt charger, ( not the charger for the machine, which is a 24 volt charger ), charge the 2 batteries in parallel. Sometimes it helps to charge them up the wrong way for a few hours, then discharge them again with the light bulbs. After this charge them again in parallel with the 12 volt charger, this time the correct polarity, a leave on charge for 12 hours.
You might have to repeat the charge, discharge cycle a few times.
The batteries will accept a charge after a bit of this, but they might not be as good as new batteries.
If you are unsure how to do this, get some help from someone who can do the work safely.
Good luck. Neil.

Chair was working just fine and now it won't move .....says battery is dead but was charged fully less than 48 hrs ago and has hardly been used in that time!


These chairs use Lead Acid Gel Cells and they do go bad after a while It is not unusual for them to be fully charged and loose the charge in just a few hours as the internal resistance of the batteries are compromised by warped plates due to heat generated by the charger. It also could mean that the connections have become corroded and just need to be cleaned. Check that first.

Hi when i charge my powered weelchair should be with power on or not?


When you charge your power wheelchair the power chair should be off. First of all, the charger will charge the chair without the power chair being on, since the charger works independently from the chair electronics. The chair electronics when they are on will drain a small amount of power and theoretically the batteries will take longer to charge.
Also, as with any electronic device or appliance it should be shut off when not in use for safety, longevity of the components, and conservation. There is no danger of the chair being driven off while the charger is plugged in because all power chairs have a built in safety feature disabling the chair when it is being charged. Hope this helps.

Yep It sure does Why didn't you charge the chair for 2 months? Charge at least once a week if you don't use it daily. Always break in the new batteries by using the chair daily for 10-15 days charging everynite then charge once a week if it sits for that long without use. Always put up fully charged. Do this and your batteries should last 3 -4 years Charge overnite if you use daily and never charge more than 24 hours Good Luck

I need to know how to charge a power wheelchair plse


You will need to connect the charger that was issued with the power chair to a working electrical outlet (do not use an extension cord or power bar/strip), turn it on and connect the other end to the power chairs' charging receptacle. Keep it connected for 8-12 hours or until the light on the charger indicates the batteries are charged.
If the charger indicates the batteries are charged but the charge does not last more than 1-2 hours, they batteries may have gone bad, are worn out and need to be replaced.
Good luck!

The chair will not do anything.It shows the battery as fully charged and and that is it. It was given to me by my mother in law when she passed away because I am also handicapped but had lostb the owners...


When you connect the charger, if the light goes to red to green within a few minutes and the battery power does not last more than 1-2 hours or less, it may indicate that that the batteries will not take a charge anymore and need to be replaced. This can happen if the power chair is stored without being charged for a while. Batteries retail $75-$150 each depending on the model and brand, you will need two of them.

Chair has no power after a full charge, only allows user to go oneway before it has to be pushed Batteries are good anf fuse has been checked and changed can you help us


Many a times batteries shows you full charged but due to some reason few of the battery plates are not working, and it will only work till the charged plates get discharged.

Batteries plates turns weak or get damaged due to non use of batteries, or expiry.
