Question about Electric Mobility 4 Wheel Heavy Duty Mobility Electric Power Scooter
Beep,every second speed pot renewed + controller al was ok for a couple wks,then same again,except the scooter either went forward or reverse slowly on its own,then was told to renew speed pot,now left with the beep i previously described,its so frustrating it was a scooter repairer who looked at it,be honest he said i needed the last thing the speed pot & i would be back on road,plus im thinking did i really need the new controller im thinking of having the other 1 tested.please can anyone help.
Hi. This sounds difficult. I have had a few scooters move slowly forward or in reverse, but not both. Normally if the speed pot ( wig wag ) is not exactly in the central position, they can do this.
It is possible for a scooter to have your problem, if the speed lever is binding or rubbing on the housing. Normally the lever is returned to the middle by a spring around the speed pot shaft. If this spring is loose or broken, then this could also cause the problem. Sometimes a small spot of oil or grease will help.
To check the speed lever is in the middle, slowly move the lever for forward untill you hear the brake solenoid release. Now release the lever and slowly pull it for reverse untill you hear the brake solenoid release. Make sure that the speed lever moves the same amount for forward as it does for reverse. If not adjust it with the key off.
If you get the machine to drive properly, then change the controller to see if it is OK.
As for the beeping, a lot of machines will go into an error mode if the speed lever is not in the central position when you turn the key on. This is a safety precausion.
Good luck. Neil.
