The main types of breakages and problem areas of gyroscooters

How to fix a gyroscooter at home

Conditionally "vulnerable points" gyroboards are divided into three categories:

  1. Battery. This problem occurs more often than others (Chinese production leaves much to be desired). It is not difficult to determine its presence - it is signaled by a sudden shutdown of the device while driving, blinking sensors, a decrease in the operating time on a single charge.
  2. Electronics. In cases with two-board In gyroscooters, the problem in this area is more often manifested by the failure of the button. As for triple boardThe gyroboard may fail to calibrate, but there are problems with only one side of the gadget. It is also possible that the gyroboard fails to calibrate and the red light blinks frequently.
  3. Mechanics. It happens that electric vehicles rotate freely around their axis. This is not the norm, because this situation occurs due to a broken pin. As a result, the internal wires begin to twist and the gadget stops working.

Stages of the fault check

Smart balance gyroscuter repair

Before you start repairing a gyroscooter, such as the Smart Balance, you should make sure there is a breakdown and the possibility of fixing it. There are not many steps to check the malfunction, so it does not take much time to familiarize yourself with them.

Identifying the cause of the breakage

As you know, every repair begins with diagnostics. Working with a gyroboard is no exception to this rule. The first thing to do is to identify the reason why the device stopped responding to user commands or behaving "strangely". To do this, it is worth carefully inspect the outside of the gadget for chips and cracks, the operation of the sensors and keys.

When inspecting a gyroscooter, it is worth paying attention to the sensors. For example, the most informative of them is motion sensorwhich emits an annoying beep or flashes in the event of a malfunction.

If all goes well here, it's time to move on to the "insides". This, too, is quite realistic to do on your own.

Disassembling a gyroboard

Before you start disassembling, you should prepare the right tool - a screwdriver or a screwdriver. The first option is considered more acceptable, as the work with it is faster and neater.

The main task of disassembling the gyroboard is to remove the cover. All the internal elements are hidden under it. It is not difficult to remove it - you need to unscrew all the screws and take out half of the body.

Connecting elements should be set aside separately in a container so as not to lose them.

After that, it is worth disconnecting the wires to the housing. Then the battery, boards and motors are exposed to the user.

Disconnect the wires carefully, without straining or tearing them off.

Then you need to inspect the specified parts. If the suspicion falls immediately on any of them, you should remove this element, preliminarily disconnecting all loops from it.

Rules for working with the master

When contacting a craftsman, you should observe the following sequence of actions:

  1. Find a trusted company or person with experience with electric vehicles.
  2. Provide the gyroboard and notify of signs of malfunction.
  3. Wait for a diagnosis.
  4. Discuss the cost and repair time.
  5. To give consent to the work.
  6. Accept the completed work.

  8. Pay the employee for the service rendered.
  9. Get the warranty card.

Each step is important and you should not ignore them - this is the only way to repair the gadget will be qualitatively, and subsequent failures will be prevented.

Repair price

  • the complexity of the work;
  • the urgency of the repair;
  • type of failure;
  • transportation model;
  • availability of the warranty card;
  • master's experience.

The minimum cost of repair services is 500 rubles, but the maximum is up to several thousand (4 thousand rubles or even more).

Replacing the battery of a gyroscooter

Gyroscooter battery repair

The most correct solution in the repair of the battery of the gyroscope is considered to be its replacement. The following can be corrected with this method problems:

  • the gadget does not work much after charging;
  • the gyroscooter stops suddenly while riding;
  • the battery is fully charged, but the gyroscooter does not turn on;
  • does not charge when connected to the mains;
  • the charging process abruptly stops, although the index has not yet reached 100%.

Every user can remove the old battery and put in a new one. It does not require any special knowledge or experience. The most important thing is to battery balancer gadget, because without it charging in the future will be problematic.
