How To Fix Razor Electric Scooter

razor all viewToday I would like to share my little Do-It-YourSelf project that I had to do on a broken electric razor scooter that I got from my friends. The problem was that the batteries did charge, the motor worked, the on/off button light came on, but when you push the gas switch it wouldn’t move. Here is a couple of the solutions. Go and spend $30.00 online to buy the part and then wait for it to come and then replace it and then it may brake again. Or follow my instructions on how to make the scooter work without that annoying part. If you are going to follow my instructions and something still doesn’t work, or you mess something up, or you hurt yourself, or whatever happens that you didn’t expect, then it is your problem and your fault and I am not responsible for anything that may go wrong. If you don’t have common sense, then please leave this tutorial alone and please leave my website alone too, I don’t want you to hurt yourself looking at my website. Ok, lets get started. First of all, the only thing that part does is turns off the gas switch when you press on brakes, sounds useless to me.

razor broken partThe part number for that part is 229337. Well, lets get started. Unscrew the six little bolts that hold the aluminum plate that you stand on when riding the scooter. Now remember the way the soft padding is on those batteries. Carefully pull out the wires and loosen them a little. Unscrew that little black box with a bunch of wires sticking out of it. Cut off all of those wires as close to the little black box as possible. This black box is the broken part that we are going to throw away.

The connectors that go to the front brakes switch and the front gas switch are suppose to be disconnected and left alone. Buy or Get one of yours if you have one, a heavy duty switch, which will work on a 12 volt battery, and make sure that there are only two connections for that new On/Off switch. That is going to be our gas switch, turn it on to drive, or turn it off to park. Also, get or buy two heavy duty wires, just like the ones on the scooter’s batteries or stronger and fatter. Make sure your wires will not burn or melt from a 12 volt battery.

Use my diagram to make sure that you connect everything right. When you are finished the only areas that I had to connect and cover with electrical tape are the three areas that are in green on the diagram.

razor finished insideWell, now cover everything back like it was, charge, and enjoy. When you are done, the reset button, the charging connection, and the on/off switch will all work, and your new gas on/off switch will work too. So, now you know how to fix your scooter if it has the same problem as I did. Enjoy.

  1. You rock, my daughter is now the happiest girl on the planet that her awesome dad fixed her scooter!

    PS – sorry but I took all the credit.

  2. How could you tell the motor still worked? my son’s scooter will not do anything when you move it. It isn’t frozen and the battery light comes on. Any ideas?

  3. To check your motor, you would have to take the negative Black wire from motor and connect it to the negative Black wire from the battery. And same thing with the red wires, Positive Red wire from motor touch it with the positive red wire from the battery. If the motor runs after connecting the wires, then it is good, if it doesn’t then it’s probably burnt.
    Hope this helped.

  4. Well every time I plug my scooter into its charger the light turn off when it was on a sec ago so does anyone know what to do, And it kinda charges it but it barely moves the tire…

  7. My battery charger keep blowing-up,This is the 3rd charger that i buy.
    Wish you can help me to solve my situation,thank you

  8. You might have a short somewhere, positive and negative wires touching each other. If you don’t know how find and fix this problem, then I recommend asking someone who knows and could come to your house and help you. I won’t be able to help you over the internet, you need to have someone present by your scooter.

  9. Nice and very informative blog.I found more information about Razor scooters, wire diagram and how will work their parts.

  10. My son has a e175 its happen the same do you said but the black box has to many cables and the number is different and i check the motor and is working and the swithch is turn on and the charged is working too but it doesn’t run.. :(

  11. hi y son as a e10o electric scooter a older boy rode it and did wheelies on it ,,its now chatgin but makin a right noise and wont move do you think its the motor??

  12. I have an e300. The light comes on when you switch it on. However no light comes on in the full or low section next to the throttle. The motor does not start and nothing happens when I walk with it at 3 miles per hour and twist the throttle.

    I just out it back on charging the battery. Can you help me figure out what is wrong with it and how to fix it? Thanks much. It seems your blog is where people are finding answer to their problems on razor products.

  13. I have an e100 scooter so I have no idea what your scooter has in its wiring.

    If you know for sure that your scooter is broken and that you most likely will just get rid of it, then I recommend playing around with it, like open it up and see if you’ll be able to figure stuff out on your own.

    Or, think of any friends or family members who you think may have the knowledge in this kind of stuff.

    Motors and batteries are usually the most expensive parts on scooters, to figure out if any of these parts are broken you could charge it first, then take apart the compartment that contains them, and using other extra wires try connecting carefully the black wire from motor with the black wire from battery and red with red, But remember to raise the rear wheel first.

    If the motor and the batteries work, then you know that they are good. That means you have a problem with either the accelerator or that weird little black box part, which I got rid of all together.

    Look through my wiring diagram in the article and see if you can manage to do the same for your scooter.

    Thanks for your time :)

  14. I have a e100 and an e150 both have stopped working the black box you are talking about is that the reset buttons on the side of the scooter? my wheels are free and the motor’s turn but will not start up when throttle is turned. charger is giving batteries a charge just not sure what black box you are talking about can you put a pic up to clue me in. thanks diane

  15. my daughter scooter was on the charger so when we took it off it was moving very slow and it had been on there 12 hrs. bow the light changed to red and want do nothing the light just staying on can u help me she only rode it twice

  16. I HAVE A RAZOR E325. IT WAS WORKING FINE. I PUT IT ON THE CHARGER AND NOW IT WONT DO ANYTHING. THE ON SWITCH LIGHT COMES ON BUT IT IS JUST DEAD. ANY IDEAS? THANKS!

  17. Nope Renee, I can’t diagnose your scooter’s problem without actually being there and I never had one like yours anyway.

    If you can’t fix it yourself, then either buy a new one or have someone who knows what they are doing fix it for you :)

  18. Hello my scooter does not turn off once it gets going!! If i change it to a switch with eliminating the black box will that work thx

  19. Hello Wade…

    It looks like the switch is overheating once you turn it on and it’s probably melting inside while you’re driving it.

    So, I don’t really know if avoiding the black box will help you out :/

    I’d first try changing the switch, maybe to heavier duty one, but that’s just my guessing…

    Seems like these scooters are kind of cheap quality products.

  20. to check the switch while it is wired to your scooter simply use a volt meter. If you have voltage when checking both connection points on the switch the it is defective. If the switch is disconnected you can check the switch with an ohm meter. Turn the switch off and check both sides of the switch if you have no reading or your digital meter reads OL then the switch is functioning correctly. To check the motor disconnect the two wires from the motor and use an ohm meter. Touching one lead to each wire you should read some type of resistance or ohms. If you do not then your motor has burned out. Also be aware these scooters are equipped with over load thermal protection switches. You simply press the button to reset the breaker in them. I had an issue with the black control box in my daughters E175 and repaired it in the same manner as the author of this article. Good luck to you all and hope this tid bit of info helped you out.

  21. my nieces scooter wouldn,t work from day 1, i found the wire underneath snapped. the tiny red .green, and black. i wired them together and now it will only work from the the brake and not the throttle
