Lynx scooter full charge will not move

I have my Father's Lynx scooter, when he passed away I thought my Mother would need it but she never used. Thought to sell it, bought new batteries, charged fine reads full but the scooter won't move. I was tracing wires and playing around with the "neck" bending back and forth and it did start. Ran for a while, I put back in garage a couple days later won't move. It's in free wheel mode, wiring is like brand new only used for 2 weeks but is 12 years old. Any ideas?

Sounds like a wire has broken or come apart. If playing with the neck it starts sometimes that is the area that could be the problem.

SOURCE: My wife has an Invacare Buzz scooter - I have got

The Buzz breaks down into four pieces for transport. Electrical connections must be unclipped to separate it completely. It is possible that one of the connections isn't completely clipped together, so my first check (after you have made sure that you have it plugged into a working outlet!), would be to take it apart and then reconnect everything firmly. While you are at it, you should look for any other clip-connections and undo, then redo all of them. Even those that "look okay". Inspect the connections metal fittings for signs of corrosion or dirt that may be causing a high-resistance connection, and clean as necessary. Run you fingers along the wiring to check for any places that my have been damaged, breaking a wire connetion in mid-stream. Make sure the connections to the batteries are clean and free of any corrosion too. Be sure to check the fuses to make sure you haven't blown one, and also push in your circuit breaker. These sometimes trip while charging due to spikes caused by thunderstorms. If you do all this and it still isn't charging, you'll need to open the shroud at the head of the tiller and inspect the connections running up inside the tiller, and the connections going to the PC board located at the very top of the shroud where the thmb-paddles hook into the electrical system. There should be a fuse inside there too, so check that.

Good luck.

Check to see if the scooter is in freewheel mode. To know if the batteries are bad you need to charge them for 10 - 12 hours and then have them tested with a load tester.

Lynx l3 dead

hi, Are you sure then battery box is fitted correctly ? you need to make sure the battery box is supplying a voltage to the scooter, there is a fuse located within the box however it rare to blow this unless you used a higher amp charger , normally more than 5 amps, this type of charger would be for a 8 mph scooter etc.

IF you have access to a electrical meter plug the two probes into the outside pins of the charger socket , do not allow them to touch, measure the voltage, no voltage then the fuse has gone or a contact has come off the battery

IF you located anywhere near me SS16 then testing is free.

I have an invacare ride on . The battery charger failed after the storm. Are they repairable or do I need a new one. If so, how much do they cost

The battery charger for this scooter is available from:

I believe the original equipment charger from Invacare for this scooter was a 3 Amp off board or on-board charger. The charger is no longer available from Invacare. Monster scooter parts shows this as a 2 Amp charger for the Lynx.
It would be more expensive to repair this charger than to replace it since you indicate it failed after a storm power surge. You will be happier by replacing the off-board or on-board charger for a price between $50 and $150. The only cost effective charger repair is the cord or plugs.
If the charger was plugged in during the storm, I would check the power path on the scooter for burnt fuses and wiring. Hope this helps.

My Father in Law passed away and I am trying to get his Craftsman 5hp wood chipper running so that my Mother in Law can sell it. It has electric start. I assume with electric start there must be a battery...

You can visit the Craftsman website to get this info. You will need your Model Number and Serial number to download an owners manual. The manual should show you where the battery is.

Please I need a timer for a Potterton timer EP2003

Dear dm:
Sory to know about your father.
I think the best to do in this situation , if you can afford it, is to look for a certified electrician to take care of that timer . May be you will have to buy a new, "user friendly timer" to control your water system.
Hope this helps.
