Mobility Scooter Troubleshooting

Trouble Shooting Your Mobility Scooter

Here are some of the most common problems that can keep your mobility scooter from running. Most mobility scooters have a light that flashes and the scooter will beep to indicate a problem. Count the number of flashes or beeps to determine the problem.

Problem: Scooter power cuts off while using your scooter:
Solution: Check your breaker. It is a covered button that is in the front of the battery pack. Push it all the way in to reset the breaker. This may happen when going up a steep hill or in high grass. If you have a hill that you cannot get up with your scooter, you may need a more powerful model.

Problem: Scooter beeps or flashes once.
Solution: Batteries are very low. Charge batteries as soon as possible.

Problem: Scooter beeps or flashes twice.
Solution: Batteries are too low to operate your scooter. Charge batteries as soon as possible.

Problem: Scooter beeps or flashes 3 times.
Solution: Battery voltage is too high. This may happen if you turn on your scooter with the charger plugged in. Turn off your scooter. Disconnect your charger. Turn the scooter back on. If you still have this problem, you may have a charger or battery problem. Call your service provider.

Problem: Scooter beeps or flashes 4 times.
Solution: Scooter has timed out. This happens when the scooter is left turned on but not used for several minutes. Turn off your scooter and turn back on.

Problem: Scooter beeps or flashes 5 times and will not go. The power meter is on.
Solution: You have turned on the scooter while in neutral. Turn off your scooter. Move the drive/neutral lever to the drive position. Turn the scooter back on.

Problem: Scooter beeps or flashes 6 times and will not go. The power meter is on.
Solution: You are depressing the throttle when you turn the scooter on. Turn off your scooter. Make sure you are not pressing the throttle lever when you turn on your scooter. If you still have the problem, it is an indication that the throttle is not returning to the centre position when released. Call your service provider.

Problem: Scooter beeps or flashes 7 or more times. The scooter will not run.
Solution: You have an electronics problem. Call your service provider.

Problem: Lights come on. No beeps. Scooter doesn’t run.
Solution: You most likely have turned your scooter on with the charger connected. Turn off your scooter. Unplug the charger. Turn your scooter back on. If you still have the problem, call your service provider.

Problem: Scooter does not come on. No Power lights.
Solution: Make sure that your battery pack is seated securely on portable scooters. If you still have a problem, it is your batteries 90% of the time. Replace the batteries inside the pack.

Problem: Batteries will not last. You get less than a year on a set of batteries.
Solution: Scooter batteries need to be recharged after ANY use. Always recharge your scooter every day. The sooner you charge it after use, the longer your batteries will last. You can also get top line batteries from MK battery. You can replace the AGM type batteries with Gel batteries – which are the best. You will need a Gel charger to go with Gel batteries.

Pavement, Boot, Travel & Folding Mobility Scooters

Types of Mobility Scooters (prices subject to change)

With Pavement Mobility Scooters, you can use them to travel on pedestrian pavements and in shopping areas. These types of mobility scooters are called Class 2 scooters. If you live near a high street and you can get to your destinations by avoiding roads, this may be a good choice. Class 2 scooters are smaller, lighter and often cheaper than those designed for the road, and can have three, four or, in some cases, five wheels. Although some models are capable of much faster speeds, they should be driven at 4mph on pedestrian pavements and areas. Some pavement scooter models may also allow you to cap the speed level to this legal limit.

Folding and Travel Boot Scooters These are small mobility scooters that are also to be used on pavements only and can be folded or taken apart for transporting. They can also be referred to as ‘boot’ scooters. If you can drive or have access to a car and you’re looking for something to take you short distances, perhaps to go shopping in a town centre or for a day out with your family, a travel/boot mobility scooter is a good choice. There are two types: folding and dismantling.
Folding mobility scooters allow you to reduce them to a compact shape and size, allowing you to wheel them, like a wheelie case. This makes them particularly convenient for air travel.
Dismantling mobility scooters are made up of four or five sections that have to be taken apart for travel or put together before they can be used. Despite their portability, all models tend to be heavy to lift, so if you’re likely to need help lifting yours in and out of a car buy a car hoist or arrange for someone else to do it for you.
Folding versus dismantling mobility scooters Weight is a particular issue with folding scooters, as you normally have to lift them as one piece. Removing the battery and armrests would reduce their weight by a couple of kilograms, but they will remain heavy to lift.
Sometimes the disadvantage of their weight can outweigh the benefits of easy folding and unfolding.
We also found that lightweight scooters can be less comfortable to ride, as they’re not as good at absorbing the bumps on uneven surfaces unless you choose a more modern model with all round suspension. Lighter folding scooters can feel more flimsy and less secure than dismantling travel/boot scooters. In contrast, dismantling scooters allow you to lift each component separately. But you do need to reassemble dismantling models before riding them, which you may find inconvenient.
Boot scooters are less powerful than those that can be driven on the road, which makes them better suited to short journeys of less than 10 to 15 miles. They are light and manoeuvrable, and can be used indoors, but their smaller, less-padded seats often mean they’re not as comfortable as larger models. Their wheels may also struggle with shallow kerbs. The ease of lifting a scooter in and out of a car, and how they handle on kerbs and different terrains.
Mobility scooters for the road are Class 3 vehicles. They are larger and heavier than their Class 2 cousins. You can drive them on any roads except motorways or dual carriageways that have a speed limit of 50mph or above. The maximum speed at which you can drive your scooter on a road is 8mph or at 4mph on the pavement. Being more powerful, with bigger batteries, means they are suited to longer journeys up to 25 + miles, and can cope better with hills. Road mobility scooters must have front and rear lights, indicators, hazard lights, a rear-view mirror, brakes and a horn.
They tend to provide a more comfortable ride than some of the smaller scooters. Choosing a mobility scooter: top five things to consider
1/. The types of journeys you plan to make on your mobility scooter.
2/. The types of terrain you’ll cover on the scooter.
3/. Your storage facilities.
4/. Your body weight and size.
5/. Your budget Types of journeys and terrains.
When you’re trying to decide on the type of mobility scooter you want, think about the sorts of journeys you’re likely to make in it. Will they be short, everyday journeys on mainly smooth terrain, such as trips to the local supermarket or to visit a nearby friend or relative? If so, a Class 2 mobility scooter will probably be right for you.
Will you mainly be using the scooter for days out with friends or family? If so, a Class 2 boot scooter that can be easily taken apart or folded and transported by car is likely to suit you.
Do you want to make longer journeys, perhaps to visit a neighbouring town, or do you live in a particularly hilly area? A Class 3 scooter that you can take on the road might make more sense.

Mobility scooters; some top tips for first time buyers.

If it’s your first time purchasing a Mobility Scooter for yourself or a loved one, it can be a daunting task. A mobility scooter will likely be a major element in maintaining independence, so it’s essential to make the right choice when buying one.

We urge you to purchase a scooter from a showroom. The staff will be experts in mobility, and will know each model for sale in detail. It can be tempting to purchase a cheap scooter online, but you won’t receive the expert advice, peace of mind, and may even end up driving away with an absolute disaster.
Before you get buying, there are a few main things you’ll have to consider;
•    Your budget- a good-quality scooter will cost somewhere between a few hundred and a thousand pounds. As tempting as it may be, never purchase a ‘bargain’ scooter from an online site such as EBay; there’s likely to be a reason as to why it’s so cheap.

•    Your body weight and size- one of the many reasons why it’s best to test drive a scooter before you purchase it. Many smaller, lighter, and more portable options will have a fairly low weight capacity (think 15-20 stone). If you’re too heavy for your scooter, it’s very likely that it will become unstable. It’s also worth bearing in mind that purchasing a scooter with a recommended weight capacity of lower than your actual weight will invalidate the warranty on the scooter.

•    The types of journeys you’re likely to make- mobility scooters tend to be one of three types; Class 2, Class 3, or a boot scooter. Class 2 scooters are much more suited for shorter journeys, whilst Class 3 scooters are much hardier, and can also be used on the road. Boot scooters are the most portable of the three, and will most likely be fold-able.  If you’re only planning on using your scooter for regular, short journeys (visiting the shops, for example), a Class 2 scooter will be the most suitable for you. If you live in a hilly area, or if you plan to make much longer journeys, a Class 3 will suit you best. If you’re being accompanied on a day out by friends or family who drive, a boot scooter may be best.

•    Storage- portable scooters, and some smaller models, can be dismantled or folded, and will be ideal for those with a smaller living space. However, folding/dismantling the scooter after each use can prove to be inconvenient. Larger scooters will obviously require more room- ensure you have somewhere dry and secure like a garage or shed if you don’t have room in your home. For a much more convenient option, the battery of some scooters can be removed for charging. Don’t forget to take into account the width of the doors in your home or if you need to install ramps anywhere- many larger models may not fit through a regular-sized door when brought inside, and ramps are essential for storing your scooter with as little fuss as possible.
Always try your utmost to give the scooter of your choice a test drive before purchasing, or at least view it in person first- a seemingly-perfect looking scooter could be an absolute nightmare to drive.
Wherever you choose to purchase your scooter from, there’ll be a mobility expert on hand. They’ll help you learn how to drive your vehicle, will advise you on any maintenance the scooter may require, and may even accompany you on several trips to ensure that you feel safe and comfortable.

New Vs Used Mobility Scooters

Many elderly and disabled people consider buying a mobility scooter to restore their mobility and independence often consider purchasing a used mobility scooter to save money. Auctions sites, such as EBay, offer what seem to be good deals on power wheel chairs and mobility scooters. The rule for buying merchandise off of EBay and similar web sites is “caveat emptor”. Caveat Emptor is a Latin phrase that means “let the buyer beware”.

Even the new mobility scooters that are sold on EBay can suffer from poor quality, especially if the product is not made by a known reliable manufacturer. Many new low priced mobility scooters sold on online auction sites are mass produced in China where the labour costs are low and are sold under similar pretence brand names and badges (The seller’s own company name and model). The concern of these mobility scooter manufacturers is quantity rather than quantity. The best strategy for buying a reliable new mobility scooter is to purchase only brand names that you recognize that are known to be of consistent quality.

Buying any used product involves certain inherent risks. Anyone who has bought a used car knows this rule, as dealers are known to not tell a buyer about mechanical faults in the vehicles they sell. The private deals under which used mobility scooters are purchased may not suffer from this sort of dishonest behaviour, but the scooters former owner who does not need the product or never needed the mobility scooter in the first place are not professional mechanics in most cases. The batteries of used mobility scooters may be worn down, and brake problems often develop after prolonged use. Buying a new battery or having someone available to fix the brakes of a used mobility scooter may be a solution, but it is often more trouble than it is worth. The seat likely has also conformed to the body contours of the scooter’s previous owner.

Buying a new mobility scooter made by a recognised manufacturer ensures that mechanical faults are not present, and if faults are present, a manufacturer’s warranty covers the cost or repairs or replacement parts. In extreme cases where the vehicle is beyond repair, provision may be made for a new scooter to be sent to the buyer.

You can save money buying a used mobility scooter if you shop around carefully but be prepared to spend out on any hidden faults that will emerge once you are the new owner. Considering that it is often a medical necessity for the user to buy one, it is better to buy a brand new mobility scooter to avoid many of the pitfalls and frustrations that come with buying a used product. Manufacturer warranties change the buyer’s guideline from “caveat emptor” to “caveat vendor”. The latter Latin phrase simply means let the seller beware. Which is just a fancy way of saying sellers make mechanical faults in the mobility scooter the responsibility of the scooter manufacturer.






Ways to Make Life Easier With a Mobility Scooter

Mobility Scooter

Mobility Scooter

A mobility scooter can be a lifesaver if injury, illness, or advanced age prevents someone from getting around as well as they once did. Injuries and often inevitable conditions can cause frustration and a decreased quality of life, too. However, the gift of staying mobile allows people to continue to live life to the fullest, even when faced with obstacles.

A Mobility Scooter Keeps People Safer

Whenever people experience a loss of certain skills that they had begun to take for granted, accidents can result. Activities such as walking can quickly become dangerous for someone who has poor balance, limited endurance or weakened muscles. Furthermore, people who have only recently become less mobile sometimes try to take on more than they can truly handle because they have not fully adapted to their current condition. A mobility scooter enables people to move freely about their environment and stay safe, too. Most models have a variety of speed settings, so that users can make necessary alterations depending on if they are in an open space, or somewhere that is significantly more crowded.

Frequent tasks such as shopping become easier, as well. Many shops have items scattered across extremely large spaces, or even multiple storeys. Therefore, it may take a considerable amount of time for someone to get everything on a shopping list if they are traveling on foot. Furthermore, unexpected challenges such as display tables, over-sized shelves or a combination of hard and carpeted surfaces can make things even more difficult to manage. However, most mobility scooter models have a compact build that’s easy to take on the go and navigate through busy shopping areas. Some designs even have a helpful basket on the front to hold essential items.

A Mobility Scooter Promotes Healing, Too

People who have been injured are often under physician’s orders to stay off of their feet to give their body the rest that it needs to heal properly. For people who had previously been living a very vigorous lifestyle, this can seem very limiting, even if the period of rest is only for a few weeks. When the body is already coping with a new injury, it becomes much easier for people to push themselves too hard, but not realise what happened until it’s too late. However, a mobility scooter allows people to stay active without worrying about over exerting themselves.

Try a mobility scooter and see how these convenient vehicles cater to users’ needs and promote robust independence at any stage of life.

Buying From Ebay V’s Trusted Mobility Websites.

Is Buying on Ebay Safe. You Should Read This Information If You Are Considering Buying Mobility Equipment From A Seller On Ebay.

Ebay, is the biggest (and one of the oldest) online auction sites has grown really big in the last several years, and because of that, it may be a little riskier to shop at. Some will try to use eBay for selling all kinds of stuff, even masked in a form of some popular Mobility Scooter and mobility product.
You might even end up with counterfeit branded mobility scooter, wheelchair or mobility equipment instead of the real thing. When you try to contact the seller, he doesn’t reply and basically, you lose your money. Here are some tips to prevent these scenarios from happening.

Take Care, Don’t Accept Stock Photos.
First off, answer this question: do you really need to buy that thing on Ebay?  Sure, a wheelchair cushion costing £3 is fine, but do you really want to buy a £1000 mobility scooter on eBay? Wouldn’t you feel more secure if you pay a bit more to get a brand new, guaranteed mobility scooter on a reputable UK website? Remember, It’s your money so take good care of it.
Once you get to the product you want to buy, there are some things on the actual listing which you should examine. Find the information regarding shipping and return policy. Once you know the item can be delivered to your country, move on and take a look at the item itself. If you need any more photos of it, feel free to contact the seller. Don’t accept stock photos of the item; ask the seller if he can stand by the scooter to show it is genuine item.

Use Common Sense.
Using Common sense is a great factor with any online auction. A new SLR Digital Camera for only £50? Or a new Apple’s iPad for £100?  Don’t you think that these offers are too good to be true? Well, in 99.9% of cases – they are. Don’t even consider those. Find a product with a normal, average price, proof it is new with full manufacturer’s warranty and located in the UK, Beware of the surge in rebadged counterfeit Mobility Scooters
imported from China!
Now, before you buy an item, it’s time to get know the seller. Check out his profile page and his feedback the previous buyers had left. If it’s above 99.5%, you’re good, since you should avoid anything below that mark. Yep, this feedback percentage is taken really seriously and it’s probably the most important indicator of how honest the seller is.

The last resort
You’re now ready to make your purchase – just one more thing – your delivery address. Some sellers will ship the item to the address listed in your PayPal profile, so make sure they’re all set up properly.
If you’re unsure about anything or if something seems suspicious to you, I’d recommend that you take extra caution or ask someone more experienced to give you some advice. Don’t agree to anything beyond eBay’s terms like giving the money in some other way than PayPal or buying an item directly from the seller etc.

Caveat Emptor or [Latin, Let the buyer beware.] A warning that notifies a buyer that the goods he or she is buying are “as is,” or subject to all defects.
When a sale is subject to this warning the purchaser assumes the risk that the product might be either defective or unsuitable to his or her needs. This rule is not designed to shield sellers who engage in Fraud or bad faith dealing by making false or misleading representations about the quality or condition of a particular product. It merely summarizes the concept that a purchaser must examine, judge, and test a product considered for purchase himself or herself.
Our advice is to consider your options before buying a Mobility Scooter, wheelchair or mobility equipment and remain safe and assured by purchasing from a reputable online mobility store like Discount Mobility Scooter.
