Question about Electric Health & Beauty

1 Answer

Hi, I have a Quickie P200 elect. wheelchair. The power level is controlled by a potentiometer or rheostat. Everything works fine when the potentiometer is turned no more than half way up. But when I turn the potentiometer more than 1/2 way up (i.e. 3/4 or all the way up) the motors shut off within a millisecond of me pushing the joystick forward. What do you think may be happening? Mike

Mike you probably have a bad speed control pot. There is a broken wire after the center tap in the pot causing it to shut down. That shouldn't be hard if Quickie can get you the part. You could always chech at a local electronics store for a pot but it would have to be like the one on your chair Hope this helps

Batteries are charging fine but once you run the chair it drains the batteries

this is usually what occurs when the batteries are failing, much like a car battery as they age they charge fine but the amount of stored power is gradually reduced till eventually it will no longer start the car

I think you have locked your controller, or put it in "sleep mode". Turn on the chair again and push the joystick forward, then to reverse, then forward again and release. It should fire up. Let us know if that worked.

When you turn the chair on the light just binks

If it is just one red light blinking, then your batteries are below the level necessary to power the chair. Charge and see if they come back up, or replace if they won't.

QTRONIX joystick for a Quickie P200 wheelchair diagnostics

Any reputable dealer will have a PnG or Qutronix programmer that plugs into the chair in order to program the profiles. This dealer obviously does`nt know that. Call a different dealer.
