Jackie I looked on the Pride Website and threy showed them behind each drive wheel above the motor facing the rear of the chair. Lift to place in freewheel and push down to engage. I hope this helps you

Hi there, The free wheel on the jazzy 1121 is actually controlled be a lever at the back in the middle, if you look at the back of the chair there is a lever about 4-5 inches long right in the middle under the plastic I have uploaded a picture to help you find it:
there is a lever guard to stop it slipping position this needs to be lifted as you pull the lever towards to top of the chair, it should move about 2-3 inches, when in the free wheel position you can push the chair though due to weight of the chair it is not that easy.

You might also want to take out the motor brushes and clean or replace if needed.

If you need more help just ask.

take the freewheel levers and move them up and down a few times then leave them both in the up position. Turn on the chair and see if it works correctly The noise you hear are the motors or motor running because one or both levers are in freewheel.The clicking you hear is the electric brakes engaging when you move the joystick Hope this helps

My wife's Pride Legend scooter can not be placed into FreeWheel mode.

There a several solutions to this problem and all involve removing the seat and rear cover of the drivetrain. The brake and lever arm of the brake is located on the end of the black motor. Moving the brake lever up and down places the motor in freewheel or locks the motor/brake. There is a connecting rod from the brake lever to a ball that can be pulled up or down where it exits the back cover.
The connecting rod and brake lever may be bent making it difficult to work. Gently bend it back into alignment if you can. Be careful not to damage the brake and brake lever. The rod is easily reshaped. There is also a chance that the mechanism is binding and rusted or loose. You should be able to work the rod easily. See if you can move the lever right at the brake.
The more likely culprit is an overheated seized brake with the only solution replacing the brake. I have also seen the hexagon shaped nut which is secured by 2 set screws onto the motor shaft inside the brake housing come off. The set screws get loose and the nut gets lodged in the brake. Both of these solutions requires removing the brake with some allen wrenches after noting its position on the motor shaft. Hope this helps.

I have an older version od the 1121 but cannot find the lever for freewheel. I know where it is on a modern one

I believe the older versions had a release lever and cable system at the rear center. This was a 2 step, 2 handed on your knees process to release the lock on lever with your left hand and pull out and turn the lever with your right hand. This pulled on the cables to both motors to disengage the freewheel levers

My pride ledend classic xl8 continues to freewheel when the manual lever is in drive position. Stopping is therefore dificult

Hi. I have had a couple of similar faults on other brands. It is normally caused by a split brake disk in the freewheel unit. You will probably have to have a new brake unit fitted to fix it.
If you are using the machine as it is, and need to stop quickly, a bit of reverse on the speed lever will help.
Good luck. Neil.

Drive wheel locking up

Further to my above answer,
check all connector blocks and make sure they are clean and not corroded if they are clean with emery paper or replace as needed. it might also be the motor brushes that are not making contact properly, these are located on the sides of the motor under a small black cover about the size of a UK 1p these unscrew and the brushes pull out, there is a spring attached that pushes the brush against the motor, take them out (one on ether side of each motor 2 in total to each motor) and clean with alcohol or similar, be careful not to damage them, as they are out use a Hoover to suck out any dust particles out of the motor housings, just put the tube over the holes you removed the brushes from and suck. then back to the brushes, when they are clean and dry replace them back in to the slot you removed them from, do not force, they should slide back with ease you need to place the spring and the gold cap back in and hold it there as you place the cover back and tighten up the covers, you will need to turn the spring cap around until it slot in. see picture
