II. SAFETY
GENERAL GUIDELINES
MANDATORY! Do not operate your new power chair for the first time without completely reading
and understanding this owner’s manual.
Your power chair is a state-of-the-art life-enhancement device designed to increase mobility. Pride provides an
extensive variety of products to best fit the individual needs of the power chair user. Please be aware that the final
selection and purchasing decision regarding the type of power chair to be used is the responsibility of the power
chair user, who is capable of making such a decision and his/her healthcare professional (i.e., medical doctor,
physical therapist, etc.).
The contents of this manual are based on the expectation that a mobility device expert has properly fitted the
power chair to the user and has assisted the prescribing healthcare professional and/or the authorised Pride Dealer
in the instruction process for the use of the product.
There are certain situations, including some medical conditions, where the power chair user will need to practice
operating the power chair in the presence of a trained attendant. A trained attendant can be defined as a family
member or care professional specially trained in assisting a power chair user in various daily living activities.
As you begin using your power chair during daily activities, you will probably encounter situations in which you
will need some practice. Simply take your time and you will soon be in full and confident control as you manoeuvre through doorways, on and off of lifts, up and down ramps and over moderate terrain.
Below are some precautions, tips and other safety considerations that will help the user become accustomed to
operating the power chair safely.
Modifications
Pride has designed and engineered your power chair to provide maximum mobility and utility. A wide range of
accessories is available from your authorised Pride Dealer to further customise your power chair to better suit your
needs and/or preferences. However, under no circumstances should you modify, add, remove or disable any feature, part or function of your power chair.
WARNING! Do not modify your power chair in any way not authorised by Pride. Do not use
accessories if they have not been tested or approved for Pride products.
Pre-Ride Safety Check
Get to know the feel of your power chair and its capabilities. Pride recommends that you perform a safety check
before each use to make sure your power chair operates smoothly and safely.
Perform the following inspections prior to using your power chair:
Check for proper tyre inflation. Maintain but do not exceed the psi/bar/kPa air pressure rating indicated on
each tyre if equipped with pneumatic tyres.
Check all electrical connections. Make sure they are tight and not corroded.
Check all controller connections to the electronics tray. Make sure they are secured properly.
Check the brakes. See VII. “Care and Maintenance.”
Check battery charge. See VI. “Batteries and Charging.”
Ensure the manual freewheel levers are in drive mode before sitting on the power chair.
NOTE: If you discover a problem, contact your authorised Pride Dealer for assistance.

II. SAFETY
Weight Limitations
Your power chair is rated for a maximum weight capacity. Please refer to the specifications table for this limit.
Keep in mind that the maximum weight capacity includes the combined weight of the user and any accessories
mounted to the power chair.
MANDATORY! Stay within the specified weight capacity of your power chair. Exceeding the
weight capacity voids your warranty. Pride will not be held responsible for injuries and/or
property damage resulting from failure to observe weight limitations.
WARNING! Do not carry passengers on your power chair. Carrying passengers on your power
chair may affect the centre of gravity, resulting in a tip or a fall.
Tyre Inflation
If your power chair is equipped with pneumatic tyres, you should check or have the air pressure checked regularly.
Proper inflation pressures will prolong the life of your tyres and help ensure the smooth operation of your power chair.
WARNING! It is important that the psi/bar/kPa air pressure rating indicated on the tyre be
maintained in pneumatic tyres at all times. Do not underinflate or overinflate your tyres. Low
pressure may result in loss of control, and overinflated tyres may burst. Failure to maintain the
psi/bar/kPa air pressure rating indicated on the pneumatic tyres at all times may result in tyre
and/or wheel failure.
WARNING! Inflate your power chair drive tyres from a regulated air source with an available
pressure gauge. Inflating your tyres from an unregulated air source could overinflate them,
resulting in a burst tyre.
NOTE: If the tyres on your power chair list the psi rating only, use the following conversion formulas to find
the bar or kPa rating: bar = psi x 0.06895; kPa = psi x 6.89476.
Incline Information
More and more buildings have ramps with specified degrees of inclination, designed for easy and safe access.
Some ramps may have turning switchbacks (180-degree turns) that require you to have good cornering skills on
your power chair.
Proceed with extreme caution as you approach the downgrade of a ramp or other incline.
Take wide swings with your power chair’s front wheels around any tight corners. If you do that, the power
chair’s rear wheels will follow a wide arc, not cut the corner short and not bump into or get hung up on any
railing corners.
When driving down a ramp, keep the power chair’s speed adjustment set to the slowest speed setting to ensure
a safely controlled descent.
Avoid sudden stops and starts.
When climbing an incline, try to keep your power chair moving. If you must stop, start up again slowly and then accelerate cautiously. When driving down an incline, set your power chair to the slowest setting and drive in the forward
direction only. If your power chair starts to move down the incline faster than you anticipated or desired, allow it to come
to a complete stop by releasing the joystick, then push the joystick forward slightly to ensure a safely controlled descent.
WARNING! When on any sort of an incline or decline, never place the power chair in freewheel
mode while seated on it or standing next to it.
WARNING! When climbing an incline, do not zigzag or drive at an angle up the face of the
incline. Drive your power chair straight up the incline. This greatly reduces the possibility of a
tip or a fall. Always exercise extreme caution when negotiating an incline.
WARNING! If your power chair is equipped with a reclining seatback, do not attempt to negotiate
inclines with the seat in a reclined position. Do not attempt to negotiate obstacles with the seat
in a reclined position unless an attendant is present to help stabilise the chair. Failure to heed
may result in the power chair tipping over.

II. SAFETY
WARNING! You should not travel up or down a potentially hazardous incline (i.e., areas covered
with snow, ice, cut grass or wet leaves).
WARNING! Even though your power chair is capable of climbing slopes greater than those
illustrated in figure 1, do not, under any circumstances, exceed the incline guidelines or any other
specifications presented in this manual. Doing so could cause instability in your power chair.
WARNING! Traveling down inclines rearward may have an adverse effect on the stability of the power
chair. Although the power chair is in compliance with all ISO rearward static and dynamic stability
testing, Pride strongly recommends that inclines be negotiated in the forward-facing position to
reduce the possibility of a tip or fall. In the case of wheelchair accessible vehicles, the suitability of
the vehicle-mounted ramp should be determined before using your power chair with the WAV.
Pride recommends that the maximum slope of an incline you attempt to safely ascend or descend on your power
chair does not exceed 10.5% (6°). See figure 1.
WARNING! Any attempt to climb or descend a slope steeper than 10.5% (6°) may put your power
chair in an unstable position and cause it to tip.
Figure 1. Maximum Safe Angle (Ascending and Descending)
Freewheel Mode
Your power chair is equipped with two manual freewheel levers to allow for manual manoeuvreability by a trained
attendant. For more information about how to place your power chair into and out of freewheel mode, see III.
“Your Power Chair.”
WARNING! Do not use your power chair in freewheel mode without an attendant present.
WARNING! Do not attempt to personally place your power chair in freewheel mode while seated
on it. Ask an attendant for assistance if necessary.
WARNING! Do not place your power chair in freewheel mode while on an incline or decline. This
could cause the chair to roll uncontrollably on its own.
Braking Information
Your power chair is equipped with two powerful brake systems:
Regenerative — uses electricity to rapidly slow the vehicle when the joystick returns to the centre/stop position.
Disc Park Brake — activates mechanically after regenerative braking slows the vehicle to near stop or when
power is removed from the system for any reason.
Cornering Information
While your power chair is equipped with front anti-tip wheels and rear castor wheels, excessively high cornering
speeds can still create the possibility of tipping. Factors which affect the possibility of tipping include, but are not
limited to: cornering speed, steering angle (how sharply you are turning), uneven road surfaces, inclined road
surfaces, riding from an area of low traction to an area of high traction (such as passing from a grassy area to a
paved area—especially at high speed while turning) and abrupt directional changes. High cornering speeds are
not recommended. If you feel that you may tip over in a corner, reduce your speed and steering angle (i.e., lessen
the sharpness of the turn) to prevent your power chair from tipping.
WARNING! When cornering sharply, reduce your speed and maintain a stable centre of gravity.
This greatly reduces the possibility of a tip or fall.

II. SAFETY
Public Streets and Roadways
WARNING! You should not operate your power chair on public streets and roadways. Be aware
that it may be difficult for traffic to see you when you are seated on your power chair. Obey all
local pedestrian traffic rules. Wait until your path is clear of traffic, and then proceed with
extreme caution.
Outdoor Driving Surfaces
Your power chair is designed to provide optimum stability under normal driving conditions—dry, level surfaces
composed of concrete, blacktop or tarmac. However, Pride recognises that there will be times when you will
encounter other surface types. For this reason, your power chair is designed to perform admirably on packed soil,
grass and gravel. Feel free to use your power chair safely on lawns and in park areas.
Avoid driving on uneven terrain and/or soft surfaces.
Avoid tall grass that can entangle the running gear.
Avoid loosely packed gravel and sand.
Do not use your power chair in fresh or salt water.
Do not use your power chair at the edge of a stream, lake, or ocean.
If you feel unsure about a driving surface, avoid that surface.
Inclement Weather Precautions
Exposure of your power chair to inclement weather conditions should be avoided whenever possible. If suddenly
caught up in rain, snow, severe cold or heat while operating your power chair proceed to shelter at the earliest
opportunity. Thoroughly dry your power chair before storing, charging or operating your power chair.
WARNING! Operating in rain, snow, salt, mist/spray conditions, and on icy/slippery surfaces can
have an adverse affect on the electrical system. Maintain and store your power chair in a dry
and clean condition.
WARNING! Prolonged exposure to hot or cold conditions may affect the temperature of
upholstered and non-upholstered items on the power chair, possibly resulting in skin irritation.
Exercise caution when using your power chair in extremely hot or cold conditions or when
exposing your power chair to direct sunlight for prolonged periods of time.
Stationary Obstacles (Steps, Kerbs, etc.)
Proceed with extreme caution when driving near raised surfaces, unprotected ledges and/or drop-offs (kerbs,
porches, stairs, etc.). The correct method for approaching a kerb is illustrated in figure 2.
To navigate up over a kerb or stationary obstacle:
1. Approach the kerb or obstacle slowly, and make sure the power chair is traveling perpendicular to the obstacle. See figure 2.
2. Increase the forward speed just before the front wheels come in contact with the obstacle.
3. Reduce the forward speed only after the rear wheels have cleared the obstacle.

II. SAFETY
To navigate down a kerb or stationary obstacle:
1. Approach the kerb or obstacle slowly, and make sure the power chair is traveling perpendicular to the obstacle. See figure 2.
2. Reduce the forward speed just before the front wheels come in contact with the obstacle.
3. Increase the forward speed only after the rear wheels have cleared the obstacle and you are once again on a level surface.
WARNING! Do not attempt to have your power chair climb or descend an obstacle that is higher
than 7.62 cm (3 in.) unless you have the assistance of an attendant.
WARNING! Do not attempt to have your power chair proceed rearward down any step, kerb or
other obstacle. This may cause the power chair to tip.
Stairs and Escalators
Power chairs are not designed to travel up or down stairs or escalators. Always use a lift.
WARNING! Never use your power chair to negotiate steps or escalators.
Doors
Determine if the door opens toward or away from you.
Drive your power chair gently and slowly forward to push the door open. Or drive your power chair gently
and slowly rearward to pull the door open.
Lifts
Modern lifts have a door edge safety mechanism that, when pushed, reopens the lift door(s).
If you are in the doorway of a lift when the door(s) begin to close, push on the rubber door edge or allow the
rubber door edge to contact the power chair and the door will reopen.
Use care that handbags, packages or power chair accessories do not become caught in lift doors.
Lift/Elevation Products
If you will be traveling with your power chair, you may find it necessary to use a lift/elevation product to aid in
transportation. Pride recommends that you closely review the instructions, specifications and safety information
set forth by the manufacturer of the lift/elevation product before using that product.
WARNING! Never sit on your power chair when it is being used in connection with any type of
lift/elevation product. Your power chair was not designed with such use in mind and any damage
or injury incurred from such use is not the responsibility of Pride.
Motor Vehicle Transport
Pride recommends that you do not remain seated in your power chair while traveling in a motor vehicle. The
power chair should be stowed in the boot of a car or in the back of a truck or van with batteries removed and/or
properly secured. In addition, all removable power chair parts, including the armrests, seat, front riggings, controller and shrouds should be removed and/or properly secured during motor vehicle transport. If your power chair
is equipped with a transit securement system, refer to IV. “Assembly” and the supplement provided with your
power chair for additional information regarding power chair transport in a motor vehicle.
WARNING! Pride does not recommend using the power chair as a seat in a motor vehicle. The
power chair user should transfer into the vehicle seat and use the vehicle-installed belt restraint
system if and whenever feasible. If your power chair is equipped with a manufacturer-installed
transit securement system, please refer to the supplemental safety information provided with
your power chair.
WARNING! Ensure power chairs equipped with a transit securement system are properly
secured to the motor vehicle during transport. Power chairs that are not properly secured can
become a hazard to the user and to other vehicle passengers in the event of a crash, sudden
stopping or swerving, as the power chair could tip or slide out of place.
WARNING! Always be sure your power chair and its batteries are properly secured when it is
being transported. Batteries should be secured in an upright position and protective caps should
be installed on the battery terminals. Batteries should not be transported with any flammable or
combustible items.

II. SAFETY
Positioning Belts
Your Quantum Rehab Dealer, therapist(s), and other healthcare professionals are responsible for determining your
requirement for a positioning belt in order to operate your power chair safely. The positioning belt is not designed
for use as a restraining device in a motor vehicle. You should be properly belted into seats approved by the vehicle
manufacturer with your power chair properly stowed for vehicle transport or secured using an optional transit
securement system.
Positioning belts should be installed as detailed in this manual. See V. “Comfort Adjustments.” Once installed,
the belt should be placed across the pelvis as determined by your healthcare provider. Anchor points of the positioning belts should be located so that a projected side-view angle of the pelvis is between 45°-75° of horizontal
depending on the user’s weight, posture and seat cushion thickness.
WARNING! If you require a positioning belt to safely operate your power chair, make sure it is
fastened securely in order to reduce the possibility of a fall from the power chair.
WARNING! The positioning belt is not designed for use as a seat belt in a motor vehicle. Nor is
your power chair suitable for use as a seat in any vehicle. Anyone traveling in a vehicle should
be properly belted into seats approved by the vehicle manufacturer. If your power chair is
equipped with a manufacturer-installed transit securement system, please refer to the
supplemental safety information provided with your power chair.
Batteries
In addition to following the warnings below, be sure to comply with all other battery handling information. For
more information about your power chair’s batteries, see VI. “Batteries and Charging.”
MANDATORY! Battery posts, terminals and related accessories contain lead and lead
compounds. Wear goggles and gloves when handling batteries and wash hands after handling.
WARNING! Power chair batteries are heavy. See specifications table. If you are unable to lift that
much weight, be sure to get help. Use proper lifting techniques and avoid lifting beyond your

flames.
WARNING! Replace worn or damaged upholstery immediately to reduce the risk of fire hazard.
WARNING! Be aware that washing of upholstered items may reduce the resistance to
flammability of the fabric.
Electromagnetic and Radio Frequency Interference (EMI/RFI)
WARNING! Laboratory tests have shown that electromagnetic and radio frequency waves can
have an adverse affect on the performance of electrically-powered mobility vehicles.
Electromagnetic and Radio Frequency Interference can come from sources such as cellular phones, mobile twoway radios (such as walkie-talkies), radio stations, TV stations, amateur radio (HAM) transmitters, wireless computer links, microwave signals, paging transmitters and medium-range mobile transceivers used by emergency
vehicles. In some cases, these waves can cause unintended movement or damage to the control system. Every
electrically-powered mobility vehicle has an immunity (or resistance) to EMI. The higher the immunity level, the
greater the protection against EMI. This product has been tested and has passed at an immunity level of 20 V/m.
WARNING! Be aware that cell phones, two-way radios, laptops, electricity generators or high
power sources and other types of radio transmitters may cause unintended movement of your
electrically-powered mobility vehicle due to EMI. Exercise caution when using any of these
items while operating your mobility vehicle and avoid coming into close proximity of radio and
TV stations.
WARNING! The addition of accessories or components to the electrically-powered mobility
vehicle can increase the susceptibility of the vehicle to EMI. Do not modify your power chair in
any way not authorised by Pride.
WARNING! The electrically-powered mobility vehicle itself can disturb the performance of other
electrical devices located nearby, such as alarm systems.
NOTE: For further information on EMI/RFI, go to the Resource Centre on www.pridemobility.com. If unintended motion or brake release occurs, turn your power chair off as soon as it is safe to do so. Contact Pride to
report the incident.

III. YOUR POWER CHAIR
Electronics Tray
The electronics tray is located on the back of the power base. See figure 7. The ammeter, the charger power lead,
the main circuit breaker, the controller connector and the charger fuse are all located on the electronics tray.
Ammeter: The ammeter displays the charger’s current output in amps. See VI. “Batteries and Charging.”
Charger Power Lead Receptacle: This is where the charger power lead plugs into the power base.
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 repeatedly, contact your authorised Pride Dealer.
Controller Connector: This is where the controller connects to the power base. Each controller uses a different
type of harness. Regardless of which type of controller is used, the cable must be secured to the seat assembly and
not allowed to drag on the floor.
Charger Inhibit Connector: The charger inhibit enables the onboard charger to disable the controller during
charging. The charger inhibit connector is coded with coloured dots. The dots are positioned so that you can align
the flat side of the male connector with the flat side of the female connector before making the connection.
WARNING! Failure to properly align the connectors can result in damage to the controller, the
charger harness and the connectors.
Charger Fuse: The charger fuse protects the ammeter from current overload. There are three fuses on the electronics tray. The top one is the charger fuse. The bottom two are spares.
Power Actuator Connector and Lighting System Connector (VSI Only): This is where the power actuator
connects to the controller. Standard lighting systems have a single-pin connector. Full lighting systems with the

The Jazzy 1121 is equipped with Active-Trac Suspension (ATS). ATS is a suspension system designed to make
your power chair traverse different types of terrain and obstacles while maintaining smooth operation. With ATS,
the front anti-tip wheels work in conjunction with your motor suspension to help you manoeuvre over obstacles
in excess of 7.62 cm (3 in.) in height.
As the front anti-tip wheels come in contact with an obstacle, the front anti-tip wheel assembly is drawn upward.
At the same time, the motors are forced downward. This allows the motors to push the power chair over an
obstacle without the possibility of becoming “hung up.”
ATS also helps in day-to-day operating conditions. For instance, when you release the joystick, your power chair
begins to slow down. As the chair slows down, the front anti-tip wheels will automatically drop toward the ground.
This will reduce the forward tip that is typically encountered with centre-wheel drive chairs.

Power Elevating Seat System
The power elevating seat system is equipped with a power elevating seat actuator that enables you to raise and
lower the seat automatically. See figure 28. The power elevating seat system can enhance the capabilities of the
power chair several ways:
By raising the seat, you extend your level of reach to allow more freedom and independence in many
environments.
By raising or lowering the seat, you can easily adjust the seat height to any surface to which you want to
transfer.
By raising the seat, you are closer to the eye level of standing persons. This provides better interaction.
For all the benefits your power elevating seat system can provide you, there are limitations.
WARNING! Always fasten the positioning belt when operating the power elevating seat system.
WARNING! The power elevating seat is intended for use on a level surface only. Never raise the
power elevating seat from its lowest position on an inclined surface. Failure to heed this warning
can result in the power chair tipping over.
WARNING! Never raise the power elevating seat from its lowest position when operating your

VI. BATTERIES AND CHARGING
BATTERIES AND CHARGING
Your power chair uses two long-lasting, 12-volt, deep-cycle batteries. These are sealed and maintenance free.
Since they are sealed, there is no need to check the electrolyte (fluid) level. Deep-cycle batteries are designed to
handle a deep discharge. Though they are similar in appearance to automotive batteries, they are not interchangeable. Automotive batteries are not designed to handle a long, deep discharge and are also unsafe for use in power
chairs.
MANDATORY! Battery posts, terminals, and related accessories contain lead and lead
compounds. Wear goggles and gloves when handling batteries and wash hands after handling.
PROHIBITED! Always use two batteries of the exact same type, chemistry, and amp-hour (Ah)
capacity. Refer to the specifications table in this manual and in the manual supplied with the
battery charger for recommended type and capacities.
WARNING! Contact your authorised Pride Dealer if you have any questions regarding the
batteries in your power chair.
Charging the Batteries
The battery charger is essential in providing long life for your power chair batteries. The battery charger is
designed to optimise your power chair’s performance by charging the batteries safely, quickly and easily. The
charging system consists of the charger, the charger fuse and the ammeter. The onboard charger is located underneath the electronics tray. See figure 6. The charger has an in-line fuse that protects the ammeter, which is located
on the electronics tray for easy viewing. The ammeter indicates the rate of charge necessary to fully recharge the
batteries. It is also a good indication of whether or not the charger is working. The ammeter and the charger are
only functional when the charger power lead is plugged into an electrical outlet.
PROHIBITED! Removal of grounding prong can create electrical hazard. If necessary, properly

VI. BATTERIES AND CHARGING
To charge the batteries using the onboard charger:
1. Position the rear of your power chair close to a standard
electrical outlet.
2. Be certain the controller power is turned off and the freewheel levers are in the engaged position. See III. “Your
Power Chair.”
3. Plug the charger power lead into the receptacle on the
power base, then into the electrical outlet.
XLR
NOTE: The power chair incorporates an inhibit function
that disables the power chair when the charger is plugged
into a electrical outlet.
4. We recommend you charge the batteries for at least 8 to 14
hours. As the batteries charge, the ammeter needle slowly
drops to 0.
Figure 31. Battery Charging
NOTE: The ammeter indicates how much charge is needed
to fully charge the batteries. Wait about a minute for the
charger to warm up. The ammeter may move as high as 5.5
amps, then gradually move back down to 0 amps as the batteries charge.
5. When the batteries are fully charged, the needle vibrates on
or about the 0 mark on the ammeter. Disconnect the charger power lead, wind up the lead and store it in a safe place.
To charge the batteries using the optional off-board charger:
1. Position the front of your power chair next to a standard electrical outlet.
2. Be certain the controller power is turned off.
3. Plug the off-board charger into the off-board charger socket on the controller. See figure 31.
4. Plug the off-board charger into the electrical outlet.
WARNING! The LED lights on the charger indicate different charger conditions at various times:
charger power on, charging in progress, and charging complete. If the LED does not indicate that
charging is complete within 24 hours, unplug the charger from the outlet and contact your
authorized Pride Dealer. Refer to the manual supplied with the charger for a complete
explanation of these indicators.
5. When the batteries are fully charged, unplug the off-board charger from the electrical outlet and from the
controller.
Battery Break-in
To break in new batteries for maximum efficiency:
1. Fully recharge any new battery prior to its initial use. This brings the battery up to about 90% of its peak
performance level.
2. Operate your power chair throughout the house and grounds. Move slowly at first and do not travel too far
until you become accustomed to the controls and break in the batteries.
3. Give the batteries another full charge of 8 to 14 hours and operate your power chair again. The batteries will
now perform at over 90% of their potential.
4. After four or five charging cycles, the batteries will top off at 100% charge and last for an extended period.

VI. BATTERIES AND CHARGING
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
How does the charger work?
The battery charger takes the standard electrical outlet voltage (alternating current) and converts it to 24 VDC
(direct current). The power chair batteries use direct current to run your power chair. When the battery voltage is
low, the charger works harder to charge the battery. As the battery voltage approaches full charge, the charger
does not work as hard to complete the charging cycle. When the battery is fully charged, the amperage from the
charger is nearly at zero. This is how the charger maintains a charge but does not overcharge the battery.
Can I use a different battery charger?
You should use the charger supplied with the power chair. It is the safest, most efficient tool to charge the batteries.
We do not recommend using other types of chargers (e.g., an automotive battery charger).
NOTE: Your power chair’s charger will not operate after the batteries have been discharged to nearly zero
voltage. If this happens, contact your authorised Pride Dealer for assistance. Pride recommends charging your
batteries for at least 48 continuous hours once per month to improve battery performance and battery life.
How often must I charge the batteries?
Many factors come into play when deciding how often to charge the batteries. You may use your power chair all
day on a daily basis or you may not use it for weeks at a time.
Daily Use
If you use your power chair on a daily basis, charge the batteries as soon as you are finished using your power
chair. Your power chair will be ready each morning to give you a full day’s service. It is recommended that
you charge the batteries at least 8 to 14 hours after daily use. Pride recommends that you charge the batteries
for an additional 4 hours after the battery charger indicates that charging is complete.
Infrequent Use
If you use your power chair infrequently (once a week or less), you should charge the batteries at least once
per week for at least 24 hours.
NOTE: Keep your batteries fully charged and avoid deeply discharging your batteries. Refer to the manual
supplied with the battery charger for charging instructions. Pride recommends charging your batteries for at
least 48 continuous hours once per month to improve battery performance and battery life.
How can I get maximum range or distance per charge?
Rarely do you have an ideal driving situation such as smooth, flat, hard terrain with no wind, hills or curves. More
often you are presented with hills, pavement cracks, uneven and loosely packed surfaces, curves and wind. All of
these factors will affect the distance or running time per battery charge. Below are a few suggestions for obtaining
the maximum range per charge:
Always charge the batteries fully prior to your trip.
Plan your trip in advance to avoid inclines if possible.
Limit baggage weight to essential items.
Try to maintain an even speed and avoid stop-and-go driving.
Pride recommends charging your batteries for at least 48 continuous hours once per month to improve battery
performance and battery life.

Jazzy 1121
VI. BATTERIES AND CHARGING
What type of batteries should I use?
We recommend deep-cycle batteries that are sealed and maintenance free. Both AGM and Gel-Cell are deep-cycle
batteries that are similar in performance.
WARNING! Corrosive chemicals contained in batteries. Use only AGM or Gel-Cell batteries to
reduce the risk of leakage or explosive conditions.
Why do my new batteries seem weak?
Deep-cycle batteries employ a much different chemical technology than that used in car batteries, nickel-cadmium
(nicads) or in other common battery types. Deep-cycle batteries are specifically designed to provide power, drain
down their charge and then accept a relatively quick recharge. AGM and Gel-Cell batteries should be charged as
often as possible. They do not have a “memory” like nickel-cadmium batteries.
We work closely with our battery manufacturer to provide a battery that best suits your power chair’s specific
demands. Fresh batteries arrive regularly at Pride and are promptly shipped with a full charge. During shipping,
the batteries encounter temperature extremes that may influence initial performance. Heat robs the charge from
the battery, and cold slows the power available and extends the time needed to recharge the battery (just as with
a car battery).
It might take a few days for the temperature of the battery to stabilise and adjust to its new ambient temperature.
More importantly, it will take a few “charging cycles” (a partial drain— then a full recharge) to establish the
critical chemical balance that is essential to the battery’s peak performance and long life. It will be well worth it
to take the time to break in your battery properly.
How can I ensure maximum battery life?
A fully charged deep-cycle battery will provide reliable performance and extended battery life. Keep your power
chair’s batteries fully charged whenever possible. Batteries that are regularly and deeply discharged, infrequently
charged or stored without a full charge may be permanently damaged, causing unreliable power chair operation
and limited battery life. Pride recommends charging your batteries for at least 48 continuous hours once per month
to improve battery performance and battery life.
NOTE: The useful life of a battery is quite often a reflection of the care it receives.
How should I store my power chair and its batteries?
If you do not use your power chair regularly, we recommend maintaining battery vitality by charging the batteries
at least once per week.
If you do not plan on using your power chair for an extended period, fully charge the batteries prior to storage.
Disconnect the battery harnesses and store the power chair in a warm, dry environment. Avoid temperature
extremes, such as freezing and excessively hot conditions, and never attempt to charge a frozen battery. A cold or
frozen battery should be warmed for several days prior to recharging.
What about public transport?
AGM and Gel-Cell batteries are designed for application in power chairs and other mobility vehicles, allowing
safe transportation on aircraft, buses and trains, as there is no danger of spillage or leakage. We suggest you
contact the carrier’s ticket counter in advance to determine that carrier’s specific requirements.
What about shipping?
If you wish to use a freight company to ship your power chair to your final destination, repack your power chair
in the original shipping container and ship the batteries in separate boxes.

VII. CARE AND MAINTENANCE
CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Your Jazzy 1121 is a sophisticated power chair. Like any motorised vehicle, it requires routine maintenance
checks. You can perform some of these checks, but others require assistance from an authorised Pride Dealer.
Preventive maintenance is very important. If you follow the maintenance checks in this section as scheduled, you
can help ensure that your power chair gives you years of trouble-free operation. If you have any doubt as to your
power chair’s care or operation, contact your authorised Pride Dealer.
WARNING! Do not service the power chair when the seat is occupied.
Your power chair, like most electrical equipment, is susceptible to damage from the elements. Avoid damp areas
of any kind.
WARNING! Direct or prolonged exposure to water or dampness could cause the power chair to
malfunction electronically and mechanically. Water can cause electrical components to corrode
and the chair’s frame to rust. Power chairs should be examined periodically for signs of
corrosion caused by water exposure, bodily fluids or incontinence. Damaged components should
be replaced or treated immediately.
Should your power chair come in contact with water:
1. Dry your power chair as thoroughly as possible with a towel.
2. Allow your power chair to sit in a warm, dry place for 12 hours to allow unseen water to evaporate.
3. Check the joystick operation and the brakes before using your power chair again.
4. If any inconsistencies are found, take your power chair to an authorised Pride Dealer. Power chairs that are
frequently exposed to sources of water, such as incontinence, should be inspected often for corrosion and
electronic components may need to be replaced frequently.
Temperature
Some of the parts of your power chair are susceptible to extreme changes in temperature. Always keep your
power chair between the temperatures of -8° C/18° F and 50° C/122° F.
In extremely cold temperatures the batteries may freeze. The specific temperature at which they freeze
depends on a number of factors, such as battery charge, usage and composition of the batteries (e.g., AGM or
Gel-Cell).
Temperatures above 50° C/122° F may cause your power chair to operate at a reduced speed. This reduced
speed is a safety feature built into the controller that helps prevent damage to the motor and other electrical
components.
General Guidelines
Avoid knocking or bumping the controller, especially the joystick.
Avoid prolonged exposure of your power chair to extreme conditions, such as heat, cold or moisture.
Keep the controller clean.
Check all connectors on the electronics tray to ensure that they are all tight and secured properly.
Make sure pneumatic drive tyres are inflated to the psi/bar/kPa air pressure rating indicated on each tyre.
WARNING! Make sure pneumatic tyres are inflated to the psi/bar/kPa air pressure rating
indicated on each tyre. Do not underinflate or overinflate your tyres. Low pressure may result in
loss of control, and overinflated tyres may burst. Overinflating tyres can cause them to explode.
WARNING! Do not use a high pressure hose to inflate your tyres.
Use a rubber conditioner on the tyre sidewalls to help preserve them.
WARNING! Never use a rubber conditioner on the tread area of the tyres; doing so may make the
tyres slippery and cause your power chair to skid.

Jazzy 1121
VII. CARE AND MAINTENANCE
All wheel bearings are prelubricated and sealed. They require no subsequent lubrication.
The body shroud has been sprayed with a clear sealant coating. You can apply a light coat of car wax to help
it retain its high-gloss appearance.
Check all electrical connections. Make sure they are tight and are not corroded. Batteries must sit flat within
the battery well, with the battery terminals facing inward, toward each other. Refer to the frame decal for the
correct wiring layout.
WARNING! Even though the power chair has passed the necessary testing requirements for
ingress of liquids, you should keep electrical connections away from sources of dampness,
including direct exposure to water or bodily fluids and incontinence. Check electrical
components frequently for signs of corrosion and replace as necessary.
Daily Checks
With the controller turned off, check the joystick. Make sure it is not bent or damaged and that it returns to the
neutral position when you release it. Check the rubber boot around the base of the joystick for damage. Visually inspect the boot. Do not handle or try to repair it. See your authorised Pride Dealer if there is a problem.
Visually inspect the controller harness. Make sure that it is not frayed, cut or has any wires exposed. See your
authorised Pride Dealer if there is a problem with any harnesses.
Check for flat spots on solid tyres. Flat spots could adversely affect stability.
Inspect the armrests for loose hardware, stress points, or damage. See your authorised Pride Dealer if there is
a problem.
Weekly Checks
Disconnect and inspect the controller from the electronics tray. Look for corrosion. Contact your authorised
Pride Dealer if necessary.
Ensure that all parts of the controller system are securely fastened to your power chair. Do not overtighten
any screws.
Check for proper tyre inflation. If a tyre does not hold air, contact your authorised Pride Dealer for replacement
of the tube.
Calibrate the joystick if a noticeable difference in performance is detected or if the joystick does not operate
properly. To calibrate the joystick, power off the unit, place the joystick in the neutral position and power the
unit back on. If a problem still exists with your joystick’s performance, contact your authorised Pride Dealer.
Check the brakes. This test should be carried out on a level surface with at least one metre (3 feet) of clearance
around your power chair.
To check the brakes:
1. Turn on the controller and turn down the speed level of your power chair.
2. After one second, check the battery condition meter. Make sure that it remains on.
3. Slowly push the joystick forward until you hear the electric brakes click. Immediately release the joystick.
You must be able to hear each electrical brake operating within a few seconds of joystick movement. Repeat
this test three times, pushing the joystick rearwards, then left and then right.
Monthly Checks
Check that the anti-tip wheels do not rub the ground when you operate the power chair. Adjust them as
necessary. See V. “Comfort Adjustments.”
Check for extreme wear on the anti-tip wheels. Replace them as necessary.
Check for drive tyre wear. See an authorised Pride Dealer for repair.
Check the rear castors for wear. Replace them as necessary.
Check the rear forks for damage or fluttering which indicates that they may need to be adjusted or have the
bearings replaced. See an authorised Pride Dealer for repair.
Keep your power chair clean and free of foreign material, such as mud, dirt, hair, food, drink, etc.

VII. CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Yearly Checks
Take your power chair to an authorised Pride Dealer for yearly maintenance, especially if you use your power
chair on a daily basis. This helps ensure that your power chair is functioning properly and helps prevent future
complications.
Storage
Your power chair should be stored in a dry place, free from temperature extremes. When storing, disconnect the
batteries from the power chair. See VI. “Batteries and Charging.”
WARNING! If you fail to store the unit properly, the frame can rust and the electronics can be
damaged.
Batteries that are regularly and deeply discharged, infrequently charged, stored in extreme temperatures, or stored
without a full charge may be permanently damaged, causing unreliable performance and limited service life. It is
recommended that you charge the batteries periodically throughout periods of prolonged storage to ensure proper
performance.
You may wish to place several boards under the frame of your power chair to raise it off of the ground during
periods of prolonged storage. This takes the weight off the tyres and reduces the possibility of flat spots developing on the areas of the tyres contacting the ground.
Cleaning Instructions
Use a damp cloth and mild, non-abrasive cleanser to clean the plastic metal parts of your power chair. Avoid
using products that may scratch the surface of your power chair.
If necessary, clean your product with an approved disinfectant. Make sure the disinfectant is safe for use on
your product before application.
WARNING! Follow all safety instructions for the proper use of the disinfectant and/or cleaning
agent before applying it to your product. Failure to comply may result in skin irritation or
premature deterioration of upholstery and/or power chair finishes.
WARNING! Never hose off your power chair or place it in direct contact with water. Your power
chair has a painted, ABS plastic body shroud that allows it to be easily wiped clean with a damp
cloth.
WARNING! Never use any chemicals to clean a vinyl seat, as they may cause the seat to become
slippery or dry out and crack. Use soapy water and dry the seat thoroughly.
Wheel Replacement
If you have pneumatic tyres and you have a flat tyre, replace the tube. If your chair is equipped with a solid tyre
insert, then you must replace the entire wheel assembly. Replacement tyres, tubes and wheel assemblies are readily available through your authorised Pride Dealer.
WARNING! The wheels on your power chair should onyl be serviced or replaced by an authorised
Pride Dealer or a qualified technician.
WARNING! Be sure the the power to the controller is turned off and the power chair is not in
freewheel mode before performing this procedure.
WARNING! When changing a tyre, remove only the centre lug nut and washer, then remove the
wheel. If any further disassembly is required, deflate the tyre completely or it may explode.
