The service manual for this scooter is available at this link:

http://www.goldentech.com/pdf/support/ride/gb101-service-manual.pdf

Page 3 and page 8 has the wiring diagram for the battery connections.
This error code indicates a problem with the throttle potentiometer or speed potentiometer.

The paddle potentiometer is the paddle that you use to control the speed of the scooter when driving. The paddle is attached to a shaft on an electronic control which when turned sends an electrical signal to the controller to speed up or slow down the scooter in forward or reverse. When this control wears out from constant turning the electrical signal goes bad or is distorted.
The speed potentiometer is under the round speed knob and controls the speed by turning it by hand. These 2 controls are connected together electrically. I usually replace both controls when I get this error code.
When the speed pot knob is on slow the throttle paddle can only work in this slow range. When the speed pot knob is on fast the throttle paddle works in the fast range.

Page 12 and page 16 has the procedure for replacing the throttle potentiometer. You should obtain new parts from Golden Technologies: 800-624-6374 before taking the console apart.
You can try to clear the error code by zeroing out the control paddle (even it out) with your left hand and turning the scooter on with your right hand. By trial and error you may be able to get this to work. This is only temporary until you get the new parts installed. Hope this helps.

Error 22-23-26


Precor Error Code 23
Error Code: 23 Manufacturer: Precor
Model: All Models
Error Description: Error 23, Motor Pulses Missing after Start Up - Indication that the speed sensor signal was lost while the unit was in operation. Possible Reason:
  1. The line of sight between the speed sensor and the speed sensor target is obstructed.
  2. Incorrect gap between the speed sensor and the speed sensor target.
  3. Incorrect adjustment of the speed sensor potentiometer (when equipped).
  4. Intermittent connection of speed sensor or drive motor wiring.
  5. Badly worn drive motor brushes not able to make proper contact with drive motor commutator.
  6. Faulty lower PCA.
  7. Faulty interconnect cable between upper and lower PCA.
  8. Faulty upper PCA.
Recommended Action:
  1. Using a static safe vacuum cleaner, carefully vacuum out the drive motor compartment. Be sure to thoroughly clean the area between the speed sensor and the speed sensor target.
  2. Inspect the gap of the speed sensor to the speed sensor target. Proper gap is 3/16" and the speed sensor photo eye should be aimed at the larger portion of the targets wedge shaped section. If unit has a magnetic speed sensor, the gap between the end of the sensor and the flywheel tooth needs to be 3/16".
  3. Locate the speed sensor potentiometer (when equipped) on the lower PCA. Set the speed sensor potentiometer to mid-range. Start the treadmill and increase speed to 6 mph. Carefully adjust the speed sensor potentiometer until the treadmill is operating the smoothest. Increase the speed to full speed and again adjust the speed sensor potentiometer until the treadmill is operating the smoothest. These two adjustments are typically small and are generally only a matter of fine tuning.
  4. Test all wiring and wire connections of the speed sensor and drive motor. Replace or repair necessary wire connections or wiring.
  5. Inspect and replace drive motor brushes if necessary.
  6. Determine if the lower PCA is bad by swapping with a known good lower PCA.
  7. Determine if the interconnect cable is bad by swapping with a know good cable.
  8. Determine if the upper PCA is bad by swapping with a know good upper PCA.
Precor Error Code 22
Error Code: 22 Manufacturer: Precor
Model: All Models
Error Description: Error 22, No Motor Pulses at Start Up - Error indicates that the display has sent a command for the drive motor to start, however, the speed sensor has not returned the signal acknowledging that the drive motor has started. Possible Reason:
  1. The line of sight between the speed sensor and the speed sensor target is obstructed.
  2. Badly worn drive motor brushes.
  3. Incorrect gap between the speed sensor and the speed sensor target.
  4. Incorrect adjustment of the speed sensor potentiometer (when equipped).
  5. Inoperative speed sensor.
  6. Faulty lower PCA.
  7. Faulty interconnect cable between upper and lower PCA.
  8. Faulty upper PCA.
Recommended Action:
  1. Using a static safe vacuum cleaner, carefully vacuum out the drive motor compartment. Be sure to thoroughly clean the area between the speed sensor and the speed sensor target.
  2. Bady worn drive motor brushes cannot make proper contact with the motor commutator, therefore the drive motor will not start when voltage is applied. Inspect and replace drive motor brushes if necessary.
  3. Inspect the gap of the speed sensor to the speed sensor target. Proper gap is 3/16" and the speed sensor photo eye should be aimed at the larger portion of the targets wedge shaped section. If unit has a magnetic speed sensor, the gap between the end of the sensor and the flywheel tooth needs to be 3/16".
  4. Locate the speed sensor potentiometer (when equipped) on the lower PCA. Set the speed sensor potentiometer to mid-range. Start the treadmill and increase speed to 6 mph. Carefully adjust the speed sensor potentiometer until the treadmill is operating the smoothest. Increase the speed to full speed and again adjust the speed sensor potentiometer until the treadmill is operating the smoothest. These two adjustments are typically small and are generally only a matter of fine tuning.
  5. An inoperative speed sensor will allow the drive motor to start and run briefly before the error appears. If able to access the speed sensor wiring, measure the DC voltage between the speed sensor leads. Two of the leads will always read about 5 VDC. Two will toggle between 0 and 5 VDC as you slowly turn the speed sensor target. If both measurements are not seen, the speed sensor needs replaced. Some units have the speed sensor mounted on the lower PCA and the lower PCA needs replaced.
  6. Determine if the lower PCA is bad by swapping with a known good lower PCA.
  7. Determine if the interconnect cable is bad by swapping with a know good cable.
  8. Determine if the upper PCA is bad by swapping with a know good upper PCA.

Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

Circulator blower runs continuously. No furnace operation. Integrated control module diagnostic LED is flashing SIX (6) flashes.
6 FLASHES
1 Rollout limit circuit is open.
2 Flame rollout. i? Misaligned burners, blocked
flue and/or air inlet pipe, or failed induced draft blower.
3 Loose or improperly connected wiring.
4 Check burners for proper alignment.
5 Check flue and air inlet piping for blockage, proper length, elbows, and termination. Correct as necessary.
6 Check induced draft blower for proper performance. Replace, if necessary.
7 Tighten or correct wiring connection.

Turn power OFF prior to repair.
i? See i?Vent/Flue Pipei? section for piping details.
i? Ensure the correct pressure switch replacement is used.

THIS IS A GAS PRODUCT, INCORRECT REPAIR CAN CAUSE A EXPLOSION, AND DEATH CAN OCCUR. IF YOU DO HAVE THE PROPER TOOLS SUCH AS MANOMETER AND LEAK DETECTORS, I SUGGEST YOU CONTACT A SERVICE COMPANY

Hello, The green battery lights seem to go out rather quickly, and then the speed LED's flash on/off and the chair slows way down. After recharging it fully last night, the speed lights started flashing...


It sounds like a battery problem more than anything. If it were a fuse, the chair would not move at all. When batteries are stored, they need to be kept charged by charging every couple of week or so (ideally). There may be other problems causing this, such as a short somewhere or a problem with one of the motors/brakes/electronic componets draining the batteries, but I feel this is unlikely given what you have described. I would have the batteries checked at a dealer with a proper battery tester. Preferably have the charger checked at the same time. We use a specific battery/charger tester in our shop that is connected to a computer and will give a graph of the battery/charger condition. This way there is no arguments as to whether the batteries or charger is faulty. Hope this has helped.

Companion II. The light blinks 7 times over and


7 light error refers to paddle or speed
potentiometer problem, if you feel confident taking the covers off then check that all the connections are nice and firm, also on other scooters if the paddle is not located in the neutral position when you turn the scooter on the control box will detect this and "lock out" the scooter, you can fix this using trial and error but it can be very fiddly! (yes iv had to do this before!) if all the connections seem quite solid and on the control box this would possibly suggest that either the potentiometer has failed and will need replacing (which would mean reconfiguring the paddle when its in) or there is a fault in the control box, if you dont feel comftable/cant fix this problem then obviously i would reccomend taking it to an authorised repair shop, i hope this helps you if i can be of any furthur assistance then my email is rick @ lxrixta.co.uk (remove the spaces!)
