Scooter Problems.

 

Problem:

My mobility scooter has not been in use for some time, and there appears to be no life in it at all. What is the probable cause of this?

Problem:

Cyclic batteries used on mobility vehicles should be charged and preferably used regularly. Failure to do so will often result in having to replace the batteries.

Solution:

 

 

  • Firstly push the reset button to reset, if the scooter has one, you can find out if it has in your user manual.

  • If you are still experiencing this sort of problem please contact us where we will be available to give you more advice.

 

Problem:

Motor runs but scooter does not move.

 

  • Freewheeling lever at transaxle is not engaged

  • Free wheel lever is slipping on shaft

 

Solution:

 

  • Engage lever; turn off scooter using the key and switch back on to reset.

  • If you believe the lever (brake) is slipping on the shaft please contact us where we will be able to give you more advice.

 

Problem:

Scooter is pulling to one side when driving forward.

Possible causes:

 

  • Uneven pressure or worn tyres (usually front)

  • Wheel bearings possibly worn

  • Steering linkage out of alignment

 

Solution:

 

  • Check for wear on the tyre, usually on the front as these are more prone to wear due to turning.

  • Check the required tyre pressure (usually stated on the tyre).

  • If you cannot determine if there is a problem with bearings or the steering linkage, please contact us where we will be able to give you more advice.
