●
Performance adjustments should only be made by professionals of the healthcare field or
persons fully conversant with this process and the driverʹs capabilities. Incorrect settings could
cause injury to the driver, bystanders, damage to the chair and to surrounding property.
●
After the wheelchair has been set‐up, check to make sure that the wheelchair performs to the
specifications entered during the set‐up procedure. If the wheelchair does not perform to
specifications, turn the wheelchair Off IMMEDIATELY and reenter set‐up specifications. Repeat
this procedure until the wheelchair performs to specifications.
●
DO NOT engage or disengage the motor release levers until the power is in the OFF position.
●
Before performing any maintenance, adjustment or service verify that On/Off switch on the
joystick is in the off position.
●
Avoid storing or using the wheelchair near open flame or combustible products. Serious injury
or damage to property may result.
●
ALWAYS keep hands and fingers clear of moving parts to avoid injury.

Initial test procedures
7.1
Testing the motor
SERVICE MANUAL
●
On the 4‐pin motor connector (2), locate the two contacts in the RED and BLACK housings.
●
Set the digital multimeter to measure resistance (ohms).
●
Measure the resistance between the two motor contacts.
Note
A normal reading is between 0.5 and 5 ohms. A reading of 0 ohms or in excess of 15 ohms
indicates a problem. High readings are generally caused by bad connections and/or damaged
brushes. Contact Invacare.

Invacare - PRONTO M41
Testing the electro-mechanical parking brake
Note
This procedure should only be performed on wheelchairs with conventional motor/gearbox
assembly.
●
Engage the motor release lever, as described in chapter 8.4.1
●
On the four‐pin motor connector (2), locate the side by side connectors in the black housings.
●
Set the digital multimeter to read ohms.
●
Measure the resistance between the two brake contacts.
●
A normal reading is between 45‐100 ohms depending on the motor (1).
●
A reading of 0 ohms or a very high reading (Megaohms or O.L. (out of limit)) indicates a shorted
brake or an open connection respectively. If either condition exists, send the motor to Invacare
Technical Service for inspection/repair.
WARNING!
A shorted electro-mechanical brake will damage the brake output section in the power
module.
Do not connect a shorted electro-mechanical brake to a good power module. A shorted brake
must be replaced.
Note
A bad motor can damage the power module but a bad power module will not damage a motor.

SERVICE MANUAL
Rain test
●
Check to ensure that the RED and GREY battery terminal caps are secured in place, joystick
boot is not torn or cracked where water can enter and that all electrical connections are secure
at all times.
●
Do not use the wheelchair if the joystick boot is torn or cracked. If the joystick boot becomes
torn or cracked, replace IMMEDIATELY.
Field load test
Old batteries lose their ability to store and release power due to increased internal resistance. In
this procedure, batteries are tested under load using a digital voltmeter to check battery charge
level at the charger connector. The charger connector is located on the joystick. When voltage at
the output drops 1.0 volts under load (2.0 for a pair), replace the batteries.
Note
Read these instructions carefully and the manufacturer’s instructions on the digital voltmeter
before proceeding.
●
Switch the electronics OFF on the remote.
●
Make sure battery is fully charged. An extremely discharged battery will exhibit the same
symptoms as a bad battery.
●
Remove the footboard from the wheelchair. Refer to chapter 8.13.
●
Connect the voltmeter leads to the charger connector (1) on the wheelchair. Most digital
voltmeters (2) are not affected by polarity; however, analog meters (meters with swinging
needles) can be and should be used carefully. A good meter reading should be 25.0 to 25.8
VDC with the chair in neutral.
WARNING!
When performing the remaining steps, ensure your feet are clear from casters and wall,
otherwise injury may result.

Invacare - PRONTO M41
SERVICE MANUAL
●
Run the wheelchair in neutral for at least 2 minutes.
●
Sit in wheelchair and place your feet against a door jam, workbench, or other stationary object.
●
Carefully push the joystick forward, trying to drive the wheelchair through the stationary object.
The load should draw between 30 to 40 amps from the batteries for 0.3 seconds.
Note
Performing the last step puts a heavy load on the batteries as they try to push through the
stationary object. If the wheels spin, have two individuals (one on each arm) apply as much
downward pressure as possible on the arms of the wheelchair.
●
Read the meter while the motors are straining to determine the voltage under load.
Note
If the voltage drops more than 2.5 volts from a pair of fully charged batteries during the 0.3
seconds, they should be replaced regardless of the unloaded voltages.

IMPORTANT
The seating system of the power wheelchair is delivered ex works with an optimally
adjusted center of gravity. Any change in this adjustment setting can negatively influence
the stability of the power wheelchair.
● You must perform an individual risk analysis every time you change the center of gravity of
the seating position, in order to ensure the safety and stability of the power wheelchair.
A: Seat depth
B: Center of gravity of the seat/ seat position
108
Invacare ® - PRONTO M41
SERVICE MANUAL
Note
The user weight and seat depth have strong influences on the choice of the center of gravity of
the seat. If the user is heavy and the seat depth is greater, the focus should be the farther back.
For best possible driving characteristics of rear-wheel drive wheelchairs, the weight to be
distributed: 30 – 40 % front and 60 - 70 % rear.
WARNING!
Risk of damage due to collisions of the legrests with other parts of the wheelchair!
● Set the legrests to the smallest angle before adjusting the seat center of gravity.
● Pay attention with adjusting the seat center of gravity that the legrests do not touch any other
parts of the wheelchair. This ensures that the legrests can not collide with other parts of the
wheelchair.
10.3.1 Captain's seat and standard seat
Depending on the seat that is installed, you can attach the seat at different points on the seat frame
and thus set the seat depth, see chapter 10.1.2.1 (Captain's seat) and chapter 10.1.2.2 (standard
seat).
