To know if you have control issues, let us first discuss what controllers are.
A controller is an electronic device that is located between the throttle and
the motor. The standard practice of most manufacturers is that the controller
is programmed to limit, or control, acceleration and the top speed for the
scooter. If something within the controller was to burn, or become damaged,
you would get a wisp of something burning, which is exactly what that is - the
smell of burned electronics. The minute the burn first occurs, you would
probably see smoke the same time you would smell the smoke.
Any electric, motor-powdered vehicle is designed with a built-in device as a
means of protection. In other words, these devices control the level of damage
that would be caused by excessive load or heat. These overloads or heat can be
caused by several things although the most common are due to ambient temperature,
excessive hills, riders exceeding the weight capacity, low tire pressure, or any
combination of these reasons and more. In most cases, these controllers are
thermal breakers, circuit breakers, fuses, and so on.
Additionally, the controller is designed to stop or dramatically slow the
performance of your Scooter, or vehicle. As an example, if your scooter were
to have a problem with low voltage, the controller would cut the motor, allowing
you to travel very slowly for a short distance. Another example would be in the
case of overheating. In this situation, the controller would cut the motor and
then limit you from going anywhere for 20 to 30 minutes, or until the motor has
cooled to a safe temperature.
These controllers are professionally crafted, giving you, the rider a safe trip.
We all know how easy it is to push through something, more or less hoping nothing
serious will go wrong. With the controller, all the guesswork is gone. In fact,
you should talk to the business or individual you purchased the scooter from to
get a full understanding of all the advantages offered from the controller. You
should also check for warranties and if something should go wrong with the
controller on your scooter, you will want to get it replaced immediately - it
could be a matter of fun versus unexpected disaster.
