Everything we as consumers buy, have their own special noise. The kitchen blender
sounds a particular way, unique to what your neighbor's blender sounds like. Your
air conditioning unit has a special sound as it works to keep your home cool.
Your washing machine omits a noise, all of its own.
As you get accustomed to your electric scooter, any time you hear a noise
different from what you normally hear, pay attention. Although an unusual noise
does not always mean trouble, it could. In this case, it is far better to be
check than just assume everything is okay.
If the noise you hear is a chugging type sound, you could be looking at problems:
· Rear wheel sprocket - not centered on the axle
· Rear Wheel sprocket - not aligned in same plane as the pinion gear in the motor
In this case, you want to make sure that the rear axle is perfectly centered.
Something this simple could be the culprit for the noise. Secondly, ensure both
sprockets are aligned correctly. For example, you might need to adjust the motor
bracket and / or bend the motor's mount plate.
Another sound that you might hear is a low-scaled or quiet crackling or sizzling
noise. The cause of this could possible be that the battery is actually
overcharging. To rectify this problem you want to unplug the dumb charger once
the green LED light goes on. Another option to get rid of the noise is the
replace your smart charger no longer dropping voltage to the maintenance mode.
If you hear a squeaking sound coming from the electric scooter while in motion,
you may have a problem with a loose spoke, partially engaged brake, or perhaps,
the noise is caused by the wheel bearings. In this situation, you would try
adjusting the spokes so they all have equal tension, make sure the brakes are
adjusted properly, and adjust the axle tension or if needed, replace the bearings.
One last noise that you might experience is a squeaking sound. In this case, you
could have a dry chain that would only require lubrication to eliminate the noise.
If you have a noise not described here or one listed that will not go away after
trying the remedies, check with the manufacturer or mechanic.
