How to Detect Faults and Repair Self-Balancing Scooters Successfully

Self-balancing scooters have proved to be incredibly sought-after amongst consumers in the last few years, as they are a fantastic way in which to stay healthy and active, and are relatively inexpensive to boot. If you purchase a swegway from an established and well-known retailer then you know you are getting a quality product, but there are still issues which need addressing if they begin to malfunction.

The technology inside a self-balancing scooter is still a relatively new and innovative concept, which has not been developed properly in order to reach its full potential. These scooters have rapidly risen in popularity, and demand keeps increasing steadily, so many manufacturers have decided to produce the products on the assembly line.

Therefore, many people may encounter some problems, the majority of which are manageable, but there are a few which require a little more care and attention to detail. The most common issues which customers run into is losing the balance and responsiveness to the tilting. This can be resolved by a simple recalibration.

The red light situated in the middle of the scooter signals when there is a problem. In order to recalibrate your self-balancing scooter, all you need to do is follow these simple steps:

• Make sure that your scooter is turned off
• Put the board on the flat surface so that it is perfectly straight
• Align the two scooter sides entirely
• Press and hold the power button for five seconds
• Release the power button after the lights start flashing. This will commence the calibrating process
• Leave the scooter to calibrate itself

After this sequence has been performed, the scooter will be calibrated and is ready to use.

The next common problem can arise with the pads on the board getting stuck, and this will provide constant pressure to the lights as they do not sense the rider’s foot. In this scenario you should try to unstick the boards by applying hand pressure in order to get them back to their designated position. Make sure that your board is turned off before doing anything as you can then remove the wires which may get in the way.

If this does not help then you can try performing the same practice, but with additional pressure from the inside of the scooter. Remove the lower plastic cover and then try and reposition the pads. This practice usually solves this issue.

If the on/off power button is stuck, then remove the cover and use your hands to grasp both sides of the button. Make sure you do not move any wires or leave them outside of the cover. If the scooter loses the ability to function correctly and starts shaking when the rider steps on then you may have a problem with your infrared sensors.

Just remove the four screws holding the sensor and unveil the rubber pieces. Use scissors to cut the rubber for 1.5mm. This will ease up the communication of the infrared sensor in the system.
