Question about Pride Mobility Revo 3 Wheel Electric Scooter Floor Sample

2 Answers

The motor on our brand new Revo 3 Wheel makes a ticking noise about every revolution of the wheels. This is our second Revo, the company exchanged the first one due to the same problem that they could not fix. Everyone says it sounds like the bushings. Can you help with advice on how to fix this without going back to Manufacturer a second time. Trent Moore

    hi, it can be that the main worm gear is worn or if it's new badly engineered, I do recommend putting in some grease around the main Worn gear and the spindle that connects to the motor regards GeWiz

This is a bushing problem in the transfer case. I've had several of these units with the same noise for several years now. I too have complained to a point where it is now white noise. Just like accepting the rattling noise in my Ford. One thing that will exasperate the noise is increasing the weight on the vehicle.

Trent I had this with another scooter and it turned out to be a cut or piece missing from one of the tires. Check all the tires carefully for any little defect or gouge. If you find something fishy take a piece of tape and cove the defect and the drive the scooter and see if you still hear the ticking sound. If that doesn't help block the rear of the scooter off the floor and have your wife run it slowly carefully listen to both rear tires to see if you can find the one making noise. If you can't hear the noise block up the front tires spin them to listen for the sound you are hearing. Hope this helps and let me know what you find Good Luck

I have a 325i 1993 bmw my windows and sunroof went out barly work all i hear is this ticking noise behind the steering wheel so i buy a new muti purpose relay and plug it in brand new one and its still...

They sold you a turn-indicator relay!!!!
(Sorry- sick joke) ;)
The ticking noise you hear will be the relay contacts repeatedly closing and opening, like somebody flicking the lights on and off.
This should not happen.
Have somebody check your on-board computer and wiring.
Does this help you?

Rubbing noise rear end but not all the time

Hi.Most scooters use a steel key in each rear hub to drive the wheels. These often get noisy. As the wheel turns the weight is put on the key and then comes of as the wheel keeps turning making a noise each revolution of the wheel. To repair remove the rear wheels and wipe a thin smear of grease onto the axle and key. This will reduce the noise. Hint, loosen the bolts holding the wheel on before raising the rear end to remove the wheels. If you place a support or block of timber under the machine, be careful of the motor brush holders.
Other noises could be gearbox gears worn.
Good luck. Neil.

Toshiba model number 62HM95 62' makes grinding noise

SORRY, This is from the authorized Toshiba parts center:

"The color wheel, lamp fan, lamp fan holder are parts of the LIGHT ENGINE only." It means the wheel is not sold separately and there is not even listed in the breakdown for the set a part number.

A replacement light engine (optical light engine) retails for 456.00 list and is sold on an exchange basis only.

Wheels- knocking noise in the right wheel

Hi. If the knocking noise happens with each revolution of the wheel, it is probably the square key in the axle that drives the wheel. Remoce the wheel and wipe a light smear of grease on the axle and key where it fits inside the wheel. As the wheel normally rotates, the weight comes on to the key and off again, causing the noise. The grease allows it to move without making the noise. Sometimes also caused by a stone in the tread, but most likely to be a dry key.Good luck. Neil.

I received my Pride Revo 3 on Friday and noticed a clicking noise to the rear of the scooter (sounds like it's around the right wheel arch). It's a sound which happens in motion and is quite...

Is it a fast clicking or does it sound like a stone in the tyre? If its the latter, it will just be a dry axle. Remove the wheel (be careful not to lose the hub key!), put grease on the axle and replace the wheel again. This should solve the problem. If its the former, it is normal for this noise to occur but its not usually very load and can sometimes be curred by removing the brake from the motor and 'Re-Seating' it. Either way, it should be nothing to be too cercerned about.

Sticking in and out of gear

Hi. When you say in and out of gear, does it free-wheel or just not drive? The jerking could be caused by faulty motor brushes. Fitting new brushes or getting the motor overhauled would probably fix this.
If you gave a better description of the fault, we might be able to give you a better solution. good luck. Neil.

Revo 3 wheel: will not hold constant speed; batteries recently replaced but did not fix problem

hi, there could be a number of issues,

First check the speed pot, try moving the throttle lever in the upwards or downwards direction while going forward, if the scooter starts to pick up again then the speed pot is worn and needs replacing.

if the motor has brushes check them, make sure they can move freely, some times they stick and cause intermittant speed problems, check the battery conections and make sure they are tight.

If this helps please vote.

Ticking noise, grinding noise when turning, front wheel looks off

For the occasionally turning sound:
Sounds to me like you may want to check your CV boots for cracks. If water and other debris has got up into the boot then it could have damaged your cv joint which is a swivel joint to allow turning on front wheel cars. The boot is right at the point where your axle meets the wheel assembly.

The second problem with the transmission: with that kind of miles on the car, you may want to change the transmission fluid and filter and then add a container of TransX, used for older transmissions. Then see what happens. The TransX additive helps with seals and such... or you could just add the TransX to your transmission while its warm , drive it about 100 miles and hopefully see the effects.

Right rear wheel

You may need to be sure all the bolts are tight on the wheel, and that there is nothing stuck in the tread. is it a metallic or rubbery tick?
