SOURCE: i have an xl8 mobility scooter that keeps cutting

ok, first take the control panel off, ( panel that has the battery power display etc ) take care in doing to make sure you don't pull any wires off,

first check the wiring on the ignition switch, check the speed pot by moving it up and down,

Check the connections to the battery follow the wires from the battery to the Motor controller, normally marked B+, B-, then follow from the motor controller to the motor again checking the connections.

Make sure the freewheel lever stays in position.

If you use the scooter every day then plug the scooter in each night for 8-10 hours.

SOURCE: Throttle does not cut off when released. Scooter keeps creeping f

ok, right the throttle lever has moved round slightly,

Look under the throttle lever where it connects to a stem, this stem should have a cross slot on it , you need to undo the throttle lever, two allen bolts inserted in the lever, move the cross head with a screw driver while holding the throttle lever still, you will need to experiment but it quite easy to sort, the cross slot should be nearly centre when looking under the throttle lever.

Hope that makes sense.

The diamond insert in the hub of the blade keeps falling out as soon as I start a cut. What is wrong?


1. switch off saw, remove cord from socket (positive electrical insulation)
2. lift table for maximum cut and check size of the washer holding the blade,
3. you should have holding nut with collar, collar is about 1 1/4 (32mm) diameter, then blade (diamond is actually universal reducing bush in some blades) and lastly you should have internal washer, again, about 1 1/4" (32mm) diameter. if your collar are smaller, you need to replace blade as not suitable for your particular model, albeit I am rather suspicious that you have wrong collared nut and internal collar. Please check if both collars are exactly this same diameter. Please check if collars cover diamond cut-out.
4. if you see discreptancy between description in 3, purchase suitable blade (external diameter is 7 1/4" (184mm), as you did not supply what model of your saw, therefore most probably shank is 5/8" (16mm),
5. mount internal bush (collar), will go correctly only in one way.
6. mount blade (pay attention to cut direction, cutting surface should be clockwise if you look at mounting shaft.
7. mount external flared nut
8. check blade for slippage and wobbliness
9. connect power cord and switch on/off
10. check saw blade againg for slippage/wobbliness
11. make test cut if 10 was correct
12. use normally

Do not forget that this is not a toy, it will cut through wood, ocassional nail and your fingers.

Opearating saw crate flying debris, always wear googles or facemask, you have only two eyes and there is no spares.

Please leave note how you go with this advice.

Celebrity XL4, when going up hill, power cuts out. turn key off and back on, scooter will go again for a couple of feet.

Sounds like Overload Cutout ??? Use a Higher Rating Cutout, as going up hill is very hard on Scooters and it also depends on your weight.
