SAFETY
The Jazzy 1143 is a state-of-the-art life-enhancement device designed to enhance your mobility. There are, however, certain situations—including some medical conditions—where you will need to practice operating your Jazzy
1143 in the presence of an attendant. Below are some safety tips that are designed to help you become accustomed to your new Jazzy.
WARNING! The Jazzy 1143 is a motorised vehicle. When you are seated in your Jazzy
1143 and you anticipate that you are going to be in a stationary position for an extended
period of time, turn off the power. This eliminates the possibility of unexpected movement and conserves battery power.
TRANSFERS
Transferring onto and off of your Jazzy 1143 requires a good sense of balance. Be sure to have an attendant or
health care professional present while learning to properly transfer yourself. To eliminate the possibility of injury,
we ask that you verify the following before attempting a transfer:
1. Be sure the power is turned off.
2. Be sure the Jazzy 1143 is not in the freewheel mode.
3. Make sure the armrests are flipped up or removed from the power chair.
4. Tip the footrest up; this helps to keep your feet from hanging up on the footrest during the transfer.
WARNING! Avoid putting all of your weight on the footrest. This may cause the Jazzy 1143
to tip and cause injury!
MOTOR VEHICLE TRANSPORT
Though your Jazzy may be equipped with a positioning belt, this belt was not designed with the intent of providing
proper restraint during motor vehicle transport.
n In an effort to improve the safety of its units during motor vehicle transport, Pride has crash tested numerous
Jazzy models. However, since there are unlimited variations of the Jazzy product, all variations could not
possibly be tested. Therefore, Pride recommends that Jazzy power chair users should not be transported in
vehicles of any kind while in power chairs. As of this date, there are no standards approved for tie-down
systems in a moving vehicle of any type to transport a user while in a power chair.
n Always be sure your Jazzy 1143 is properly secured when being transported.
WEIGHT LIMITATIONS
Your Jazzy 1143 is rated for a 136-kg (21.6 stone) maximum weight limit.
WARNING! Exceeding the weight limit voids your Jazzy warranty and may result in
personal injury!
STAIRS AND ESCALATORS
WARNING! Power chairs are not designed to travel up or down stairs or escalators. Always
use an elevator. If you try to navigate steps or escalators, you can cause injury to yourself
and others!

SAFETY
PUBLIC ROADS AND PARKING LOTS
WARNING! Do not operate your Jazzy 1143 on public streets and roadways. Please be
aware it may be difficult for traffic to see you when you are seated in your Jazzy. To
ensure your safety, always assume you cannot be seen. Obey all local pedestrian traffic
rules. Safety accessories like reflectors, fluorescent flags, and various lighting packages
are available to order from your Pride provider.
STEPS AND KERBS
WARNING! Do not attempt to climb or descend a step or kerb higher or lower than 5 cm. Never
attempt to proceed backwards down any step, kerb, or other obstacle. Doing so could cause the
Jazzy 1143 to tip.
INCLINES AND UNEVEN TERRAIN
When climbing an incline, try to keep the chair moving. If you must stop, start up again slowly and accelerate
cautiously.
WARNING! When climbing an incline, do not zigzag or drive at an angle up the face of the incline.
Drive your Jazzy straight up the incline. This greatly reduces the possibility of a tip or fall. Always
exercise extreme caution when navigating an incline. Never travel up or down an incline that can
be potentially hazardous such as areas covered with snow, ice, or cut grass.
When moving down an incline, do so slowly and in the forward direction only. If your Jazzy 1143 starts to move
faster than you anticipated, allow the unit to come to a complete stop by releasing the joystick. Then push the
joystick forward slightly and continue traveling down the incline.
MAXIMUM RECOMMENDED INCLINE
Pride has performed extensive incline testing with your Jazzy 1143. Our results have shown that the maximum
incline you can climb is 8.7% at maximum weight capacity. The angle of most handicap access ramps is 8.7%.
Any attempt to climb a steeper slope may put your Jazzy in an unstable position.

Battery charger power lead outlet: This is where your battery charger power lead plugs in. For more
information, see VI. “Batteries and Charging”.
Main circuit breaker: The main circuit breaker is a safety feature built into your Jazzy 1143. 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 the Jazzy to “rest” for approximately one minute.
Then, push the circuit breaker button in, turn the controller power back on, and continue normal operation. If the
main circuit breaker continues to trip repeatedly, contact your authorised Pride provider.
Joystick controller harness connectors: These are where the joystick cables connect to the power base.
FREEWHEEL LEVERS
For convenience, your Jazzy 1143 is equipped with two freewheel levers. See figure 2. These levers allow you to
disengage the drive motors and maneuver the chair manually.
To

ANTI-TIP WHEEL
WARNING! Consult your Pride provider before attempting to change the anti-tip wheel
height! Changing the anti-tip height affects handling under deceleration!
The Jazzy 1143 mid-wheel drive design provides superior performance and safety. The anti-tip wheels are an
integral part of this design because they provide you with stability during deceleration. The anti-tip wheels are
preset at the factory to a height of 1.2 cm off the ground. This is the ideal setting for most Jazzy 1143 users.
However, you may encounter situations where you may need to adjust the anti-tip wheels. For instance, if you
drive your Jazzy on surfaces such as deep pile carpeting, you may notice that the anti-tip wheels have a tendency
to drag on the carpet. In this case, you may need to raise the anti-tip wheels. If you drive your Jazzy primarily on
smooth surfaces such as linoleum or tile, you may find that you are tipping forward more than is comfortable for
you. In this case, you may need to lower the anti-tip wheels.

BATTERIES
AND
CHARGING
Your Jazzy 1143 uses two long-lasting, 12-volt, deep-cycle batteries. These batteries are sealed and maintenancefree. 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 also are unsafe.
WARNING! Battery posts, terminals, and related accessories contain lead and lead compounds.
Wash hands after handling.
CHARGING YOUR BATTERIES
The battery charger is one of the most important parts of your Jazzy 1143. The battery charger is designed to
optimise your Jazzy 1143’s performance by charging the batteries quickly and easily. The charging system consists
of the charger, a charger fuse, and the ammeter. The charger is located between the batteries. See figure 13. The
ammeter is located on the electronics connector housing for easy viewing. See figure 3. 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 a wall
outlet.
WARNING! You must recharge your Jazzy 1143’s batteries with the supplied onboard or off-board
charging system. Do not use an automotive-type battery charger!
WARNING! Never use an extension cord to plug in your battery charger. Plug the charger directly
into a properly wired standard wall outlet.
To charge the batteries using the onboard charger:
CHARGER
1. Position the rear of your Jazzy 1143 close to a standard wall
outlet.
2. Be certain the controller power is turned off and the Jazzy is
not in freewheel.
3. Plug the charger lead into the charger connector on the connector housing. See figure 3.
4. Extend the charger power lead and plug it into the wall outlet.
The Jazzy 1143 incorporates an inhibit function that disables
the power chair when the charger is plugged into a wall outlet.
5. 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 up to as high as 3.5 amps,
Figure 13. Onboard Battery Charger
then gradually move back down to 0 amps as it charges.
6. We recommend you charge the batteries for 8 to 14 hours. As the batteries charge, the ammeter needle slowly drops
to zero. When the batteries are fully charged, the needle vibrates on or about the zero mark on the meter scale.
7. When your Jazzy 1143’s batteries are fully charged, unplug the power lead from the wall outlet and from the
charger receptacle and store it in a safe place.

CHARGI N G
OFF-BOARD CHARGER
Your Jazzy may be equipped with an off-board charger. If desired, external chargers plug into the joystick controller. If your Jazzy is equipped with an external charger, refer to the instructions that came with the charger.
BATTERY BREAK-IN
To break in your Jazzy’s new batteries for maximum efficiency:
1. Fully recharge any new battery prior to initial use. This brings the battery up to about 90% of its peak performance.
2. Run your Jazzy 1143 about the house. Move slowly at first and don’t stray 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 run the Jazzy 1143 again. The batteries should now
perform at over 90% of their potential.
4. After four or five charging cycles, the batteries top off at 100% charge and last for an extended period.
BATTERIES AND CHARGING—FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQS)
How does the charger work?
The battery charger takes the standard wall outlet voltage and converts it to 28VDC (direct current). The Jazzy
1143’s batteries use direct current to run your power chair. When the battery voltage is low, the charger works
harder to charge the batteries. This is why the charging ammeter initially reads 3.5 or more amps. As the battery
voltage approaches a full charge, the charger doesn’t work as hard to complete the charging cycle. This explains
why the charging ammeter drops as it approaches a full charge. When the batteries are fully charged, the amperage
from the charger is nearly zero. This is how the charger maintains a charge but does not overcharge the battery.
Your Jazzy 1143’s charger will not operate after the batteries have been discharged to nearly zero voltage. If this
happens, call your authorised Pride provider for assistance.
Can I use a different battery charger?
You should use the charger supplied with the Jazzy 1143. It is the safest, most efficient way to charge the batteries.
We do not recommend using other types of chargers (e.g., an automotive battery charger).
How often must I charge the batteries?
Many factors come into play when deciding how often to charge the batteries. You may use your Jazzy 1143 all day
on a daily basis or you may not use it for weeks at a time.
n Daily Use
If you use your Jazzy 1143 on a daily basis, charge the batteries as soon as you are finished using it for the day.
Your Jazzy 1143 will be ready each morning to give you a full day’s service. We recommend that you charge
the batteries 8 to 14 hours after daily use. Do not charge the batteries for more than 24 hours.
n Infrequent Use
If you use your Jazzy 1143 infrequently (once a week or less), you should charge it at least once per week for
12 to 14 hours.
18
Jazzy 1143
V I . B AT T E R I E S A N D C H A RG I N G
REMEMBER: Keep the batteries fully charged and avoid deeply discharging the batteries. Do not charge
for more than 24 hours.
How can I get maximum range or distance per charge?
Rarely will you have an ideal driving situation such as smooth, flat, hard terrain with no hills or curves. More often
you are presented with hills, footpath cracks, uneven and loosely packed surfaces, and curves. All of these factors
affect the distance or running time per battery charge. The following are suggestions for obtaining the maximum
range per charge:
n Always charge the batteries fully prior to your trip.
n Maintain 30-35 psi in pneumatic drive wheels.
n Plan your trip in advance to avoid inclines if possible.
n Limit the baggage weight to essential items.
What type of battery should I use?
We recommend deep-cycle batteries that are sealed and maintenance free. Both sealed lead-acid (SLA) and gel
cell are deep-cycle batteries and are similar in performance.
Use these specifications to reorder deep-cycle batteries:

Deep-cycle batteries employ a different chemical technology from 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, and then accept a relatively quick recharge. Lead-acid 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 the Jazzy 1143’s specific
demands. Fresh batteries arrive regularly and are promptly shipped with a full charge. During shipping, the batteries encounter temperature extremes that may influence their 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 takes a few “charging cycles” (a partial drain—then full recharge) to establish the critical
chemical balance that is essential to the battery’s peak performance and long life. It is well worth it for you to take
the time to break in the batteries properly.
NOTE: The useful life of a battery is quite often a reflection of the care it receives.

How can I ensure maximum battery life?
A fully charged deep-cycle battery provides reliable performance and extended battery life, so keep the 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 Jazzy operation and limited life.
How should I store my Jazzy 1143 and batteries?
If you do not use your Jazzy 1143 regularly, we recommend maintaining battery vitality by charging the batteries at
least once a week.
If you do not plan on using your Jazzy 1143 for an extended period, fully charge the batteries prior to storage.
Disconnect the battery harnesses and store the Jazzy in a warm, dry environment. Avoid temperature extremes
such as freezing conditions 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.
NOTE: If you are storing a Jazzy 1143 for an extended period of time, you may wish to block the unit up off
the ground with several boards under the frame. This will keep the tyres off the ground and prevent the
possibility of flat spots developing.
What about public transportation?
If you intend to use public transportation while using your Jazzy, you must contact in advance the transportation
provider to determine their specific requirements. See II. “Safety” for more details.
Sealed lead-acid and gel cell batteries are designed for application in power chairs and in other mobility vehicles.
Generally, sealed lead-acid batteries are safe for all forms of transportation such as aircraft, buses, and trains. We
suggest that you contact your transportation provider to determine specific requirements of transportation and
packaging.
WARNING! Battery posts, terminals, and related accessories contain lead and lead compounds.
Wash hands after handling.

OPERATION
VSI CONTROLLER
The electronic controller is what you use to operate your power chair. It takes the battery voltage and sends it to
the appropriate system. The electronic controller enables you to move the power chair, as well as monitor battery
charge, electronic controller functions, and the condition of your electrical system. Also, it may be used to control
some optional systems such as power elevating seats and lights.
The VSI controller is an integral electronic controller. All of the electronics necessary to operate the power chair
are contained in one module. See figure 14.
The VSI consists of:
1. joystick
2. keypad (see figure 15)
3. off-board charger/
programming socket
4. actuator connector
(optional)
5. controller connector
6. 3-pin charger inhibit
connector
Typically, the VSI is mounted to one
of the armrests and is connected to
the motors, batteries, and the
onboard charger at the electronics
tray.
Figure 14. VSI Controller
Joystick
The joystick controls the direction and speed of your power chair. When you move the joystick from the neutral
(center) position, the electromagnetic brakes release and allow your power chair to move. The further you push the
joystick from its neutral position, the faster your power chair moves. When you release the joystick and allow it to
return to the neutral position, you engage the electromagnetic brakes. This causes your power chair to decelerate
and come to a complete stop.
WARNING! If your power chair begins to move in an unexpected manner, immediately
release the joystick. Unless the joystick is damaged, this action should stop your power
chair.
Keypad
The keypad is located in front of the joystick. It contains keys necessary to operate your Jazzy. See figure 14a.
Jazzy 1143

OPERATION
On/Off Key
The on/off key turns the VSI on and off. See figure 14a.
WARNING! Unless faced with an emergency
situation, do not use the on/off key to stop the
chair. This will cause the power chair to stop
abruptly.
WARNING! Always turn the power off when you
are stationary to prevent unexpected movement.
Battery Condition Meter
The battery condition meter is located in front of the joystick.
See figure 14a. This is a 10-segment illuminated display that
indicates that the VSI is turned on and also gives the battery
status, the VSI status, and the electrical system status.
n Red, yellow, and green lights lit: Battery charged; VSI
and electrical system OK.
n Red and yellow lights lit: Charge battery if possible;
VSI and electrical system OK.
n Red lights only lit or slow flash: Charge battery as soon
Figure 14a. VSI Controller Keypad
as possible; VSI and electrical system OK.
n Rapid flash of lights: Indicates a fault in the VSI or the
electrical system. Refer to “VSI Error Codes.”
n Ripple up and down of lights: The joystick was not in the neutral position when the controller was
turned on. If you get “ripple up and down of lights”, turn off the controller, allow the joystick to return
to the neutral position, then turn on the controller.
NOTE: If you still get “ripple up and down of lights”, contact your authorised Pride provider.
NOTE: When the batteries approach a discharged state, the first red light will begin to slowly flash,
reminding you the batteries need to be charged immediately!
Speed/Profile Keys
There are two keys that control either the speed or the profile. See figure 14a. This depends on how your VSI was
programmed. Press the speed/profile increase key to increase the speed or change the profile. Press the speed/
profile decrease key to decrease the speed or change the profile. The speed/profile setting is displayed on the
maximum speed/profile indicator. If your power chair was programmed with a drive profile, contact your authorised Pride provider for more information.

VII.
OPERATION
NOTE: We recommend that the first few times you operate your power chair, you set the speed to the
slowest setting until you become familiar with your new power chair.
Actuator Key and Actuator Lights (for optional equipment)
Actuator keys and actuator lights are used for optional equipment such as power elevating seats or power elevating
leg rests. For specific operation of the actuator keys and actuator lights, contact your authorised Pride provider.
Horn Key
The horn key activates the horn.
Off-board Charger/Programming Socket
You may use an off-board charger to charge the power chair batteries through the 3-pin socket located on the front
of the VSI. See figure 14. If you use an off-board charger, the charger current should not exceed 12 amps. Contact
your authorised Pride provider for more information.
CAUTION! Only chargers with Neutrik NC3MX plugs should be connected to the off-board
charger/programming socket. See your authorised Pride provider for more information.
NOTE: The socket may also be used for reprogramming the VSI. Contact your authorised Pride provider
for more information.
Controller Connector
This connects the VSI to the power chair’s batteries, motors, and motor brakes.
3-pin Charger Inhibit Connector
This connects the VSI to the onboard battery charger. This connection provides an inhibit that disables the VSI
when the battery charger is on. The charger inhibit connector is coded with colored dots. The dots are positioned
so that you align the flat side of the male connector with the flat side of the female connector before making the
connection.
CAUTION! Failure to properly align the connectors can result in damage to the VSI, the
charger, and the connectors.
Thermal Rollback
The VSI controller is equipped with a thermal rollback circuit. The circuit monitors the temperature of the controller, which roughly translates to motor temperature. In the event that the VSI controller becomes excessively hot
(above 60° C/140° F), motor current (amperage) is reduced. For every degree above 60° C/140° F, the motor
current limit is reduced by .55 amps until the VSI controller reaches 70° C/158° F, at which time the current output
is reduced to zero. This reduces your power chair’s “power,” which could also reduce your power chair’s speed,
and allows the electrical components and motors to cool down. When the temperature returns to a safe level, your
power chair resumes its normal operation.

OPERATION
Troubleshooting
The VSI controller is designed with the user’s safety as the prime consideration. It incorporates many sophisticated
self-test features which search for potential problems at a rate of 100 times per second. If the VSI detects a
problem either in its own circuits or in the power chair’s electrical system, it may stop the power chair, depending
on the severity of the problem. The VSI is designed to maximise the user’s safety under all normal conditions. The
table below identifies the individual error codes. Error codes are displayed as a rapid flashing of the lights. If you

CARE
AND
MAINTENANCE
Your Jazzy is a sophisticated power chair. Like any motorised vehicle, it requires routine maintenance. You can
perform some of these checks. Others require assistance from your authorised Pride provider. Preventive maintenance is very important. If you follow the maintenance checks in this section as scheduled, you can help ensure that
your Jazzy gives you years of trouble-free operation. If you have any doubt as to your Jazzy’s care or operation,
contact your Pride provider.
CAUTION! Your Jazzy 1143, like most electrical equipment, is susceptible to damage from
the elements. Avoid damp areas of any kind. Direct exposure to water or dampness could
cause the power chair to malfunction electronically and mechanically. Water can cause
electrical components to corrode and the frame to rust.
Should your Jazzy 1143 come in contact with water:
1. Dry your Jazzy 1143 as much as possible with a dry towel.
2. Allow your Jazzy 1143 to sit in a warm, dry place for 24 hours to allow unseen water to evaporate.
3. Perform all safety and operational tests before using your Jazzy again.
4. If any inconsistencies are found, take your Jazzy 1143 to your authorised Pride provider.
TEMPERATURE
Some of the parts of your Jazzy 1143 are susceptible to extreme changes in temperature.
n 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., sealed
lead-acid or gel cell).
n Temperatures above 50° C/122° F may cause the Jazzy 1143 to operate at a reduced speed. This is a safety
feature built into the controller that helps prevent damage to the motor and other electrical components. See
VII. “Operation.”
GENERAL GUIDELINES
n Avoid knocking or bumping your controller, especially the joystick.
n Avoid prolonged exposure of your Jazzy to extreme conditions such as heat, cold, or moisture.
n Keep the controller clean.
n Check all connections on the electronics connector housing to ensure that they are all tight and secured properly. Also check the charger harness connector.
n When the battery indicator gauge is completely lit, the batteries are fully charged and the controller and electrical system are OK.
n If one red bar on the battery indicator gauge is blinking slowly, the batteries are low and need to be charged,
but the controller and electrical system are OK.
n If the battery indicator gauge is blinking rapidly, the controller has detected a fault in either its own circuits or in
the Jazzy’s circuits. See VII. “Operation.”
n Make sure the drive tyres are inflated to 30-35 psi.
n Use a rubber conditioner on the tyre sidewalls to help preserve them. Check the tyres for wear.

CARE
AND
MAINTENANCE
n 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.
n Check all electrical connections. Make sure they are tight and are not corroded. Batteries must sit flat within
the battery area, with the battery terminals facing inward toward each other. Refer to the frame decal for the
correct wiring layout.
n All wheel bearings are pre-lubricated and sealed. They require no subsequent lubrication.
DAILY CHECKS
n With the controller turned off, check the joystick. Make sure it is not bent or damaged and that it returns to the
center when you release it. Check the rubber boot around the base of the joystick for damage. Visually inspect
the boot only. Do not handle or try to repair it. See your authorised Pride provider if there is a problem.
n Visually inspect the controller harnesses. Make sure that they are not frayed or cut or have any wires exposed.
See your authorised Pride provider if there is a problem with any of these harnesses.
WEEKLY CHECKS
n Disconnect and inspect the controller and charger harnesses from the electronics connector housing. Look for
corrosion. Contact your authorised Pride provider if necessary.
n Ensure that all parts of the controller system are securely fastened to your Jazzy. Do not overtighten any screws.
n Check for proper tyre inflation; there should be 30-35 psi in each tyre. If a tyre will not hold air, see an
authorised Pride provider for replacement of the tube.
n Check the brakes. This test should be carried out on a level surface with at least one meter of clearance around
your Jazzy.

IX. OPTIONS AND ACCESSORIES
POWER ELEVATING SEAT OPTION
Your Jazzy may be equipped with a power elevating seat. This feature can enhance the capabilities of the Jazzy in
several ways:
n By elevating the seat, your level of reach is extended to allow more freedom and independence in many
environments.
n You can easily adjust the Jazzy’s seat height to any surface to which you want to transfer. The seat swivels 90
degrees to whichever side the joystick is located.
n By raising your seat, you are closer to the eye level of standing persons. This provides better interaction.
For all the benefits your elevating seat can provide you, there are limitations. The following precautions must be
observed in order to assure safe use of the Jazzy Elevating Seat option.
n Read and understand this owner’s manual thoroughly before operating the Jazzy.
n The power seat option is intended for use on a level surface only.
n Always fasten the seat belt when operating the elevating seat. Your Jazzy’s power elevating seat is equipped
with a system that reduces the power chair’s speed by one half whenever the seat is elevated more than
2.5-5 cm. Always check to be sure this system is operating properly before using your Jazzy.
n Operate the Jazzy only on a flat level surface whenever the elevating seat is raised from its lowest position.
WARNING! Never raise the seat from its lowest position on an inclined surface. Failure to heed this
warning can result in the Jazzy tipping over and causing injury.
WARNING! Never raise the seat from its lowest position when operating your Jazzy on bumpy or
uneven surfaces. Failure to heed this warning can result in the Jazzy tipping over and causing
injury.
WARNING! Never raise the power elevating seat while your Jazzy is in the freewheel mode.
Jazzy 1143

IX. OPTIONS AND ACCESSORIES
Your Jazzy power elevating seat can be activated by using the power seat toggle switch located close to your
joystick. See figure 18. The toggle switch connector plugs into the power seat connector housing. See figure 19.
CAUTION! Be sure you are on a flat, level surface before activating the power elevating seat.
To raise the power elevating seat, push the toggle switch forward. Releasing the toggle switch returns the switch to
its center (upright) position. To continue your lift, push the toggle switch forward again. Once the seat reaches its
highest extension, the lift action stops; you should continue to hear and/or feel the lift motor running. This is because
there is a clutch mechanism that allows the motor to continue running after the lift has reached its limit. This clutch
works at both the top and bottom extensions of the lift. In order to prolong the life of your lift mechanism, please do
not allow the motor to run more than a few seconds after the mechanism reaches the top or bottom limit. To return
the seat to its lowest position, pull the toggle switch toward you. Releasing it stops the motor. When returning to the
lowest position, always be sure that the mechanism has reached its lowest limit.
To use the swivel feature, locate the swivel lever under the seat. It is located on the opposite side of the joystick.
Push down on the lever and the seat can be swiveled 90 degrees.
