First of let’s take a look at how to assemble it. We’ll start with how to open the scooter.

First, pull the red lever on the floorboard to release the lock.
Then you will fold the seat backrest down and fold the tiller downwards.

After assembling, we must learn how to maintain it to ensure optimal performance and durability. Maintaining the folding scooter requires minimal effort and just about anyone can do it. That is one of the beautiful things about the S34P. Let’s dive right in.
How to maintain the S34P.
- Perform daily checks - this is very simple as all you have to do is conduct visual checks on the conditions of the tires and inspect the battery condition on the controller. This will let you know if the batteries need to be charged.
- Do monthly checks - ensure you inspect the controller harnesses. This will inform you if they are frayed, cut or have any exposed wires.
- Conduct semi-annual checks - here, you need to check the motor brushes. This can be done by your authorized dealer after every six months or if recommended, sooner. If after the inspection your brushes are worn out, they must be replaced to avoid inconveniences.
As an addition, this article will also highlight some basic checks you need to do from time to time to ascertain your unit is in tip-top shape.
Firstly, ensure the controller is kept clean and is void of rain or water. This might damage it.
Secondly, keep the wheels free from lint, hair, sand and any carpet fibers. Thirdly, always ensure your tires are replaced by an authorized dealer in case the tread wears out.
Also, all upholstery can be washed with warm water and some mild soap to avoid deterioration of the parts and lubricate all moving mechanisms using petroleum jelly or some light oil to give you a smoothly running machine.
Now that we can maintain and assemble it, the last section of this article will inform you on how to operate the unit. Read carefully the following set of instructions.
How to operate the unit:
Let’s start with the button functions.
First off, we have the battery indicator - when it is turned on, the needle on, the meter will move across the scale from the ‘red’ sector to the ‘green’ sector. As the power diminishes, the needle slowly crawls back to the red sector and at this point you need to charge. When the needle is fully above the right, then you are fully charged.
Secondly, we have the speed adjustments - this just allows you to choose your desired speed. Turn the knob anti-clockwise for the minimum speed and clockwise to increase the speed.
Thirdly, is the power ON/OFF light - the light turns on if you insert the key and turn it off upon removal. Lastly is the horn button, this just sounds a horn.
Let us now proceed to the driving section.
Here you will learn how to safely drive, follow carefully through.
First off is the Controller ON/OFF switch. As discussed earlier, you need to insert the key to power on and proceed to swing the finger lever control forward or backward to control the direction of movement.
Secondly, is the speed control. Again, as discussed earlier, simply turn the knob clockwise for increasing speed and anti-clockwise for reduction.
Lastly, the finger control lever. This can be an alternative for controlling the speed of the vehicle, the deeper you press the faster you move.
The second section of how to drive will show you how to free wheel.
The motors have a manual feature that allows them to ‘free-wheel’ so the unit moves without being turned on. It is done by adjusting the freewheeling levers to the free-wheeling position.
We shall then proceed to discussing the electromagnetic brakes fitted on the scooter. This feature comes into play when the power is on and the wigwag is in a neutral position. They are also called the fail-safe brake. Then we also have the parking brake, this feature is included in the electromagnetic brake and will come into play when the power is off. It is a manual operation
It also has a thermal protection feature that monitors the temperature of the controller. The feature cuts off power to allow the overheating components to cool down.
In conclusion, there are many units out on the market but this is the one for you. it is very easy to operate and very safe for all people. So, get yours today.
