My chair keeps popping the breaker when going up a ramp. I can drive around fine, but it'll trip the breaker 2 or 3 just trying to get up a ramp. Does anyone have any ideas on what may be causing it?

The load on the motor changes based on the amount of work is has to do. Typically, work is defined as weight over distance at incline angle.

An increase in any one of these will increase the amount of work being performed. Likewise, decreasing any of these will reduce the amount of work being performed. If there is something rubbing - adding friction - such as a failing ball bearing in either the motor, drive mechanism, etc. - this can cause the breaker to trip, too. The other thing is the battery. If the battery is aging and has a problem with the voltage level, the motor will require more current (amps) to run. The circuit breaker looks only at the amount of current (amps) and if it exceeds the value of the circuit breaker - it will trip. You may wish to have the battery and charger checked out. Additionally, check the drive train and all parts that need lubrication and that are meant to spin freely. Anything that is binding adds to the load passing thru the circuit breaker and may be causing the current level to rise to the tripping point of the circuit breaker under conditions that previously were not a problem. Good luck!

We're is the fuse on the Jet 3

I hope this helps:
The main circuit breaker is located on the front of the battery tray.
Main Circuit Breaker: The main circuit breaker is a safety feature built into your power chair. When the batteries and the motors are heavily strained (e.g., from excessive loads), the main circuit breaker trips to prevent damage to the motors and the electronics. If the circuit trips, allow your power chair to "rest" for approximately one minute. Next, push in the circuit breaker button, turn on the controller, and continue normal operation. If the main circuit breaker continues to trip repeat- edly, contact your authorized Pride Provider.

I have a Jazzy 1103 Ultra and the lights are all on like it should be but the chair will not move. I am in Mississippi visiting my daughter and would love someone to help me. Thanks!

It could be a few things.
It might be on freewheel. To solve this: 1. Turn the chair off. 2. Locate the freewheel lever just behind the drive wheel, and on top of the motor. 3. Push the lever inward to engage the motors. 4. Repeat steps 1 and 2 for the other side. 5. Turn the chair on and see if it works .
If not, it the circuit breaker might need to be reset because of heavy strain on the motors and batteries. To solve this: 1. Turn the chair off. 2. Find the circuit breaker on the front of the case, off to the right side (you will see a hole in the case) 3. Press the circuit breaker button. 4. Turn the chair on and see if it works.
if not, the battery may need to be disconnected and reconnected To do this 1. Turn the chair off 2. Release the friction lock lever under the seat. 3. Remove the seat. 4. Release the rear shroud fastener and the yellow fastener under the front shroud. 5. Remove the shroud. 6. Disconnect and reconnect the battery connector (the big plug) 7. Replace the shroud and seat. 8. Turn the chair on and see if it works.
If not, contact your provider.

I have changed out the batteries and hand control on my Jazzy 1103 Ultra.but now the circuit breaker keeps tripping. Dee

Donna sounds like the wiring could be the problem. Did you change the batteries? Does the joystick light up when you turn the chair on? Or does the breaker pop when you try to turn the chair on? Give me as much info as you can as to what you are doing when the breaker pops thanks

I have a jazzy select 14 with an on board charger. The on board charger appears to not be functioning. What steps should I take to try and trouble shoot this myself. Im wondering if the circuit breaker has...

Mike since you know that the charger is not working you have two options purchase a new on-board charger or try to locate a good off-board charger from the area. A friend that has an extra charger or from a local provider that sells chairs. The off-board charger will plug into the charger port under the front of the joystick and will charge the batteries just as well. Just don't use the on-board charger but leave it in the chair. Hope this helps

Hello Clare,
I assume that when you say the chair will not heat up is also saying the chair will not power up (turn on) ? If I am correct in this assumption then you will always want to start at the point of the batteries. You mention that you are utilizing Braun Energy Cells ,again my assumption is the chair has Braun Batteries ?
I would start with load testing the batteries. If the batteries are say a couple years old or older they could be simply worn out. Also ,when it comes to wheelchair batteries ,if they have sat without being charged for any length of time such as several months or longer , the wheelchairs charger will usually not charge them in such a case as they have drained below the chargers capabilities. In these cases their are rare instances where the larger chagers found at your battery retailers will bring the back up to a usable state but usually not. The batteries are mounted under the seat in the lower body on most power wheelchairs and in most cases the wiring harness on each Battery is fused. So if you batteries pass a load test I would then check the fuse inline on the harness of each battery. My thoughts are that you will find your problem within the batteries or harness. Your local battery store should be able to load test the batts for you . It wold also be wise to make sure their are no connectors on the chair that may be unplugged and also make certain that if the chair has a circuit breaker and most do , that it is not tripped. Circuit Breakers are usually near the onboard chargers amp meter but depending on the manufacturer ,could be almost anyplace on the chair.
