Question about Peg Perego Gaucho Superpower

1 Answer

My Thomas 6v Ride -On Train works, but VERY slow. It sounds like its really struggling to go. I have TWO fully charged batteries so I know its not the battery. Everything else on it works great (music/light). What could the problem be/is it fixable?

It sounds to me like your battery needs to be replaced. The batteries lose their ability to hold a full charge after some time (especially if they've sat for a long while without a charge). You can get the battery tested at a trusted shop, but it might be more econimical to just replace the batteries with fresh batteries and see if that solves the problem. New batteries will charge much better and hold the charge much longer.

SOURCE: have lost charger 4 ride

Hi,

It looks like the charger has a specific plug terminated on the end so I would suggest buying the manufacturers replacement part. It can be purchased in the UK from the below links for around £35 or slightly cheaper form ebay but from a seller in the USA (third link below).

The charger model number is MECB0037.

What's wrong: Thomas ride on music is working moves a bit then stops


Hi, Batteries tend to fail on charging if not used for a while- try a really long charge and see - if it still fails to hold a charge - the re-chargable battery will need replacing.

Hi

Have you tried keep pressing the right hand button down. When you press the button down and hold the press, then the sounds are finished, the trains starts driving. When you release the button the train stops at once.

I cannot promise that this is the problem, but this is where mine was broken, and you may be able to fix yours this way.

I was able to remove the plastic around the tender and access the motor. Using alligator clips, I was able to connect the battery directly to the motor, bypassing the circuit board. The motor functioned, therefore the only component that seemed to be defective was the circuit board, located behind the speaker in the engine unit.

As far as I know, the only place to buy a replacement circuit board is from www.tigerimports.com. Search for part number MEVA0024. Cost is around $15 + shipping (around $6 or so).

I should be receiving this part by the end of the week and will report if it fixed the problem.

Thanks for using Fixya. If I didn't help your situation, please DO NOT label this advise as "inappropriate".

It could be a bad switch or the music board has a bad contact.
