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.

No display, won't charge, dead, after cold storage


hi, you say the voltage is 3 volts each, then it never work , remember it's requires at least 18 to 20 volts to light up.


if a battery measure's below 10v it's normally impossible to charge again as a lot of chargers will not go below this level, you could try a car battery charger to bring the level up however do this with care and don't leave on charge

HI Scooter is on charge full time and used daily after 30min i loose the first green light that is OK but if i dont use it for one or two days i loose the first green light only after 10min can you...


well it could be that you overcharged the batteries. You should not leave the scooter on the charger full time. you should charge the scooter nightly while you sleep unplug from the charger when you get up in the morning. the charger should not be on the scooter more than 12 hours per day and that rare. Whenever you have a red and green light on the charger the scooter is fully charged and can be unplugged. Always put it up fully charged and then charge after each use. Your batteries need to be replaced and charge the new ones before use then charge overnight each day that you use the scooter. If you don't use it for a few days you should still be fully charged than charge after use Hope this helps

Check that you are not in freewheel. If you can push the scooter easily and the rear wheels roll then you are in freewheel. Move the lever to drive postion and turn the scooter on to see if that fixed the problem Hope this helps

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:

http://www.monsterscooterparts.com/

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.

Battery shows 24.8 volts no power


Yes, your batteries are trashed. You need to replace them. Or take them off the chair and put them on a car charger,slow charge. They need to be up over 24VDC. If they fall under 24VDC the charger won`t recognize them and won`t charge.
