Nick Might first thought is that you have a brake problem well not so much that its not working as that the brake pad is stuck because of little use. Over time moisture can get the brake pads sticking to the motor case and it will cause the motor to get hot trying to turn. If Medicare paid for Mom's chair then they will pay for most of the repair. You can contact her provider(where she got the chair) or one of the 2 repair services that I list in other posts Hope this helps you

My power chair sat for 5 years after having been used for only a couple of years. Now the batteries will not charge at all. Where can I find new batteries for it?


You will need two U1 category batteries for this wheelchair.

The installation instructions can be located in the User manual available at this site.
http://www.invacare.com/doc_files/1125085.pdf

You could pick up the batteries at Walmart depending on where you live.

Hello, After fully charging my mother's Jazzy power chair overnight, the rear battery indicator/pointer shows zero meaning it's fully charged. I leave it unplugged all day and then by 5pm when I check...


Sorry but it sounds like weak batteries. I would replace both batteries and after installation fully charge before use. Then ask Mom to use the chair more each day so you can charge them overnight each day for the next 20 days. It will break in the batteries and get them operating at 100%. If you can get her to use it more and charge it overnite and always put it up at full charge the batteries should last 2-3 years Hope this helps

My question is related to an Invacare-Nutron R51.Production date 1-7-03,joystick[MKIV R11] flashes red 1 time, than green 5 times repeatedly? Can you please tell me what this means.?


Ranch well the red flash indicates a low battery and the 5 flashes indicate a bad left brake. Now try charging the batteries until you get a green light on your charger then turn on the chair it shouldn't flash the red if the batteries are accepting the charge. If your batteries are 2-3 years old it could be time to change them. If Medicare paid for your chair then they will pay most of the repair costs. You can contact your provider for help or a service company like Roadrunner Mobility @ 1-800-467-2668 or Repair Xpress @ 1-877-581-3733. If Medicare did buy the chair then you are eligible for a new chair every 5 years and yours is almost 8 years old. Contact a local provider that you trust to check into getting you a new chair. Hope this helps you

What is the proper way to charge the Pronto M51


Eduardo After using your chair and the battery level lights are down with yellow or red lights showing just plug the chair into the wall socket and let er rip. Now really after using your chair during the day and you are ready for bed just plug in the charger and let it charge over night. In the morning unplug the charger and you should be set for the day. If you don't use the chair everyday always put it up with a full charge and about once a week plug it in and let it charge overnight. Never leave the chair plugged in all the time and never leave it for more that 24 hours. The charger has two lights on it one red and one yellow or green that are hard to see because they are under the rear cover. When the chair is fully charged the yellow light turns green and you can unplug the charger and you should have a full charge. Hope this helps you

Someone gave me a pronto m51 sure step motorized wheelchair but no manual was given..my question is: Is it safe to charge the battery overnight? Is there any danger of overcharging? If anyone knows for...


Jo, nope you are safe. Most of the chargers are designed to cut off and go into trickle charge once they sense that the batteries are fully charged. The problem with overcharging comes after 18 hours or so. You should never leave the charger plugged into the chair for more than 24 hours. On the M51 the charger is built into the chair so just plug it in when you go to bed and unplug it when you get up and you'll be ok. You can check for full charge by looking at the charger there should be a red light and a green light when fully charged. Hope this helps

I don't know where my moms wheelchair was purchased, to see if it is still under warrantee


DJ, Did Medicare purchase your Mom's chair? You can contact Sunrise Medical at 1-800-333-4000 and ask if the chair is under warranty. You will have to give them the chair's serial number.

If the chair is less than a year old then all the parts are under warranty except the batteries. If it is not under warranty and Medicare purchased her chair contact Repair Xpress at 1-877-581-3733 to get it repaired medicare will cover 80% of the repair costs Hope this helps you

I have a pride go chair that is only one year old. I USE IT INSIDE MY HOUSE ONLY A COUPLE OF TIMES A DAY AND CHARGE THE BATTERIES EVERY NIGHT. The off board charger has already been replaced once under...


The small batteries (17 Amp hour I believe) are notorious for lasting a year and often much less. I consistently replace the original OEM batteries supplied with this chair at the 6 month point. The manufacturer warrants these sealed gel lead acid batteries for only 6 months. Try the AGM (advanced glass mat ) batteries and you should get better life out of them. They might be more expensive at retail pricing but your insurance should pay for the better batteries in my experience. Make sure the charger replaced under warranty is the correct amperage for these small batteries otherwise the output could burn the battery plates.
