Ok, sounds like the speed pot,

Can you move the throttle lever up and down, try going along at a constant speed (losing power ?) then move the lever up & down ?

does it improve response ? if so replace the speed pot.

Hi, my wife's freerider Mayfair mobility scooter keeps going slow, have turned speed control down but still seems to loose power, doesn't stop just slows then reverts back to the speed set.

there are four possible reasons why a mobility scooter loose power including the user weight (vs. max weight of a mobility scooter), the weather condition, the riding routine and the battery age. You can check those factors to figure out the root cause.

How do I get to the batteries on my mayfair freerider

Lift the seat off. remove seat mount by removing pin or screws. Lift plastic cover off carefully but mind cables going to lights. These can be unplugged. And there should be your batteries.

I have mayfair freerider and every now & then it stops then goes again there are no green light flashes.

hi, does it just cut out ?, if so there is one fault that can cause that, worth checking, try pressing the lever in the upwards or downwards direction while going along, if it doesn't cut out , the throttle pot needs replacing ... it's worth also checking the battery and controller connections making sure they are a good fit and tight...

Other causes:

Battery voltage dropping too low...
Brake breaking down..

I have a mayfair 4 weel scooter and the problem is when i switch it on it gos ok going backwards be going forward it goes on a slow pace and makes a clicking noice

Hi, where's the clicking sound coming from ?

Is it from the back of the scooter ? remove the rear cover under this to located the sound if it get quieter at the rear then it must be related to the front control panel; that houses the speed pot or throttle control whatever you want to call it,

it may be the speed pot is faultly and as you say not lot of power , I suggust to try moving the throttle lever in the upward direction while going forward , if this improves things then that the fault,

Freerider mayfair, no life at all in scooter

Look carefully , you will find a fuse , gently pull the wires around the seat stem , sometimes it can get buried under the power leads from the battery.
