Question about Invacare Health & Beauty

1 Answer

Invacare wheelchair 9000XT seat came loose on left side; three of the four bolts broke off and are still inside the frame. I cannot find any company in this area that will do a repair. Research on the internet has not been helpful at all. Hilda, 93 years old, lives in Petaluma, (Sonoma County, California) She called the Petaluma Senior Center to help find someone to repair her wheelchair. I am trying to help this lady, as she can't use her wheelchair in its condition. Lorraine McEvoy

    I already spend days on the computer before I tried FixYa. I am back on the computer and still haven't found what I need. I have yet to try VA facilities, that's the next step. If that doesn't help me, FixYa was a waste of money.

There is a number for Invacare at the bottom of the following webpage:
If you don't get any help or suggestions from them, I would call around to some local applicance repair facilities and see if they could suggest someone who could help you repair this.
Local VA Facilities often have wheelchair repair personnel, and if you call them, they may be able to help.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

How do I adjust the seat height on a Pronto M51 with SPJ+ Joystick

The seat height can be adjusted by removing the seat and raising up the 4 seat pillars on the bottom frame. With the pivot seat model you can raise the center post seat pillar.

What to make a 18"

What you need is a new seat sling and back upholstery, the pair of 16" crossbraces plus link bars, and narrow footplates (the standard ones will overlap once you make the chair narrower) or trim them down.

Changing the crossbraces requires disassembly of the chair frames. There are tubes inside that connect the frame sections together, these do not need replacing but is a good time to put a little lithium grease on the tubes to keep the chair folding easily.

I have oil leaking onto the left side tire of my pronto m71 sure step invacare chair. why? thanks for your help.

Sounds like you have a blown seal on your left gearbox. The only permanent solution is to replace the left brake/motor gearbox assembly. Not exactly a do-it-yourself repair. to verify, you can pull the seat off to inspect with a flashlight or tip the chair up at 45 degrees on the right drive wheel to inspect.
In my experience this is a common problem. It may take some time for enough gearbox grease to ooze out and cause the gearbox to fail. If you run the chair inside the house it will get messy very quickly and the grease stains are difficult to remove. If the chair is upwards of 4 or 5 years consider replacing left and right motor/gearbox assemblies. Hope this helps.

I have a invacare wheelchair pronto91 wont move 2 red lights flash 3 times

The three light flash indicates a short circuit between the left motor(as you are sitting in the chair)and the battery. Check all the wiring from the control box to the motor and make sure it is not damaged in any way. If it is okay, you have most likely fried the left side motor. A new motor-gearbox assembly for this chair runs in the neighborhood of $1,400.00, or you can take the motor off and take it in for a full rebuild for about $250 or so. Unplug the joystick and remove the seat and cowl. Jack up the left side with both motors in gear. Remove the center nut cover and take off the nut holding on the wheel taking care to retain the key that slides into the groove on the axle. Disconnect the wiring plug to the motor and remove the six bolts holding the motor to the frame. Separate the gearbox from the motor and take the motor to a rewind shop for repairs. Reinstall and it should be good to go.
