Question about Ctm Health & Beauty

1 Answer

Will a battery charger with too low a rating hurt my scooter? I just found out that the batteries in my scooter are slightly larger than the rating printed on the charger. It seemed to work fine though... until I got caught in the rain yesterday. Now the charger seems to be saying there's no connection between the charger and the batteries. I'm trying another charger now. There's a green blinking light. I'm not sure if that means it's charging or not. I'm gonna try a third charger. One I'm familiar with.

Hi, if the blinking light never stops blinking that can imply a fault with the charger but first make sure the connections to the batteries are clean and tight.

SOURCE: New batteries, fully charged, still wont work

I have the book if you can figure a way to post you email without getting too much SPAM. Be sure the charger is un-plugged, and that the free wheel lever is engaged.

SOURCE: have a harsh jerking movement while using

This is a common problem often caused by the potentiometer(pot) in the centre of the Wigwag (Accelerator.) This part takes a lot of “abuse” and the pot causes an intermittent electrical connection resulting in a very jerky ride. Try spraying a contact cleaner spray in the pot but most often the potentiometer will need to be replaced by a technician. Regards Chris…

SOURCE: Scooter batteries will not charge. Green light on

ok, this could be a dodgy connection with the batteries or the charger is at fault ?

1. try another charger
2. check the batteries if possible on another scooter.

3. check the connection on the battery and the charge socket connector.

SOURCE: electric mobility scooter says charge is full but won't run

This sounds she has tripped her circuit breaker. It works just like the one on your house, when you ask too much of it it suddenly goes 'pop' and seems to be dead.

Looks like you have the same scooter as mine, it should be a little white button on the back of the base. If you follow this link, it will give you a pdf version of the older model pride victory manual, (Mine is a three, they are up to about 10!) See fig. 8 on page 20 and 'Circuit Breaker' on page 21. Also, Page 33 has the troubleshooting info. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: battery charger indicating that batteries

With a Pride Scooter the charger will turn green if its fully charged and if there is a bad connection in the wiring with the batteries. If you plug in the charger and the light comes on green right away then there is a problem with the wiring or connections. Take a voltmeter and read the voltage at each battery. Fully charged they should be 13-15 volts each. If they are less than 12 volts then they are not charged and the charger is not working correctly. If the batteries are really low like less than 8 volts each then the scooter might not come on at all. If you find that the batteries have at least 12 volts or more then there is a wiring problem from the rear of the scooter to the front tiller. Pride has a habit of developing problems in the harness running from the rear to the tiller. My suggestion is to contact your provider (where you got the scooter) and have them troubleshoot the scooter. If the scooter is less than a year old then it should be under warranty and your provider will have to fix it under warranty. Sorry I don't have a quick fix for you but scooters are notoriously bad to troubleshoot and repair, especially long distance. Hope this helps you

How long should the battery charger to get a full charge


It depends on the level of discharge of the battery and the rate of amperage charge generated by the charger. If possible check the fluid level (acid/water) in the battery. If it is too low the battery will not accept a charge. If you add water (distilled) to the battery you charge at a low amperage charge rate if possible. A fully discharged battery may take 12 - 24 hours to reach full charge.

Charged battery turned key nothing happens just slight clicking sound any advise to what may be wrong


How old are the batteries ? Have you had them load tested?

First thing to check is batteries for Volts. if less then 12 volts each then either the charger is no good or the batteries have had there day.

Check batteries on scooter with the charger on and you should get around 26 volts which would say your charger is ok.

Mobility scooter battery serial connection charger question


if the charger is a 12-14 v charger you would have to charge 1 of the batteries at the time. connecting both in parallel during charging would cause a short. and in series (the way you have them wired) would provide too low a voltage for the batteries (6-7v each)

if the charger is 24-28v charger you would connect to the wires going from the batteries to the controls/motors (not the connection between the batteries) this will provide each of the batteries 12-14v charge

FAULT CODE SAYS BATTS ARE LOW AFTER CHARGING


hi, lets work on the assumption that your scooter is correct in saying the batteries are low, why is that ? , well you need to look at the charger and if possible try another charger , the other thing that could have happened is the charger fuse has blown, this is located on the tiller stem


If you are convinced that the charger and fuse are okay , look at the batteries, just because it a new scooter does not mean it new batteries ., let me explain let say your scooter has been assembled a year ago, batteries fitted , now the batteries have not been touched during that period , that in itself can kill batteries or as soon as you start charging them they give up.
I have seen this happen on many occasions.
Please rate my assistance

Scooter's horn works but the battery is not charging when plugged in.


hi, right first of all, check the charger, check the fuse located in the charger if fitted, best way to test it is to try it on another scooter.

Now if youre sure the charger is working ok look at the charger socket is it a loose fitting if so wiggle it about gently, does the charger accept it charging ? is there a charging light on the scooter ? if so does it change colour when inserted , if not bad charger or charger fitting ? now if you have a multimeter , remove the seat and the cover under that , mind how you do this as it easily to hurt your back, show now you can see the batteries , check the leads to the batteries, have they come loose, now using the meter put a prode on a red terminal and the other lead on the other battery black terminal, now change terminal if no reading until you get about 20 to 25 volts , now inserted the battery charger , has the voltage changed or watch as it will start to rise , give it 20 minutes or so and if nothing changed , it pointing at your charger as having a fault ,even if the batteries are no good it will see show some output, now if the voltage measured on the batteries is lower than 18 Volts depending on scooter it will never move but the horn will still work as that requires only 12V.

Please leave feedback if this helps

My scooter battery won't charge. Felt mild shock or short when attempted to insert connector. That seemed to disable the charger because the charger powers on, but will not run the charge to the...


Make sure that the charger is fully connected to the scooter; ususally the controller lights will go slowly left to right to indicate it is charging. Make sure the charger is plugged directly into the grounded wall outlet, not into an extension cord or power bar. If the charger is not being recognized by the scooter, you may need to replace the charger, or at least the power cord to the charger.
If your scooter has been sitting unused for a while? If so, the batteries might not charge anymore and will need to be replaced. Contact the manufacturer for a service call or troubleshooting over the phone.
Good luck!

My mobility scooter batteries are put on charge but the charger green light to indicate that they are chaged no longer lights up


hi, now that could be one of three problems,

1. first check the charger ,is it possible to try the charger on another scooter ?
2. The batteries will no longer accept a charge ,this creates a fault condition with the charger. (try these batteries on another scooter if possible).
3. the actual charger plug in, you need to check the pins here , just the outside ones with a electrical meter, no voltage implies a bad connection to the batteries.

On an E 100 Razor scooter, the battery charger shows charged


We had the same problem that I found to have a very simple fix. It seems all that needed to be done was hold in the reset button a few seconds while the battery charger was plugged in and the light on the charger turned to red and the battery charged again. Seems like too easy of a fix but it worked for my kids scooter.
