Horizon Aztec Mobility Scooter Draining Too Quickly

Question

Can anybody help me with a problem with my Horizon Aztec scooter? I am having problems with it when going up hill it seems to drain power very
quickly, but on the level and down hill its great, I have checked the brushes and they are fine.

The motor is a Franco, who I believe are not trading any more. Thank you if you can help. I am living in Oxford.

    Hi.

    The problem sounds like the electromagnetic brake has failed. This means the scooter is driving around with the brake on. You will find the motor will get quite hot when being driven, the scooter will feel tardy on hills and the battery will rapidly be used. The repair cost would be in the region of £250 if you had us come out and repair it for you.
