Question about Health & Beauty

Open Question

I have a FreeRider Kensington-s mobility scooter. When traveling on flat ground i hear a soft skweek and a low rumbling sound. This sound isn't there when going up or down hill only on the flat. At first I thought it might be wheel bearings but these seem to be OK. Could this be a problem with the gear box? In the 5 years I have had the scooter I know that the grees in the gear box is OK. I had a thought that the sound MIGHT be from the motor ? Could it need new brushes. I don't travel more that 5 miles a week in it so I think it must be a gear box problem. Thanks Lionel

Look carefully , you will find a fuse , gently pull the wires around the seat stem , sometimes it can get buried under the power leads from the battery.

SOURCE: i have power in to the control panel but no output

The Dynamic DS100 is not a sealed unit but is usually a replacement part. Unfortunately there are very few people in the UK that actually repair them. If you would like to open up the box to have a look at it yourself, the procedure is as follows:

Remove the 4 visable screws from the bottom of the box
Remove the smaller of the blue rectangular stickers from the bottom of the box
Remove the screw that was hidden by the sticker
Remove the 4 screws from the front of the box (where the plugs fit in) and pull away blue plastic part
Lift off the bottom metal cover
Remove the 3 screws that hold the lower PCB in place
Gently lift the lower PCB upwards to reveal the upper PCB
Remove the 3 screws from the middle of the upper PCB
Lift upper PCB out to access the top of the board

Hope this has been of some help to you.

Good Luck!

SOURCE: need a manual for a freerider kensington S

most scooters are equiped with a seat that can be turned through ninety degrees so that it i eaier to get on and off the scooter if this is the cae for the scooter you have and own then turn the scooter seat ninety degrees so that the seat is side on to the base then grab a hold of the base of the seat and lift you sould find the scooter seat is easily removeable and can be then replaced in the same manner in some cases you have to hold down the lever that enables the seat to be turned to do this and lift the seat at the same time once you have turned it through the ninety degrees this is the case for almost all mobility scooters now however there are a few exceptions failing this then read te manual you should of got with your scooter when you purchased it however you may not have one if you purchased the scooter second hand but if this is the case you can usually find the appropriate soloution by entering the name and make and model of your particular scooter into a web search engine you may have to visit several web sites before you find the manual you are seeking but most of them are out there in cyberspace somewhere good luck and best wishes I hope your scooter brings you many hours of joy and freedom

Mayfair freerider mobility scooter - keeps losing power, especially on slow speed

ok, sounds like the speed pot,

Can you move the throttle lever up and down, try going along at a constant speed (losing power ?) then move the lever up & down ?

does it improve response ? if so replace the speed pot.

Does the Freerider kensington have oil in the drive motor? if so how do I check it and what type and quanity does is it use? Also does anyone have a workshop manual for this

No Oil but you do have a grease nibble located on top of the gearbox, get hold of a grease gun and give it three squits of grease.
