Any electromechanical device occasionally requires maintenance, but be assured that many common problems are
usually solved easily with a bit of common sense. Ask yourself what works and what doesn't. Try each and every
control on the Hurricane PMV to see if your problem follows any pattern.
Ask yourself , "Is the whole Hurricane PMV dead or just some of its functions?"
What if all systems on theHurricane PMV appear to be dead?
1. Make sure the key is fully inserted.
2. Check the battery condition meter to verify that your batteries are fully charged.
3. The control console assembly is equipped with a timer that shuts the unit off whenever it has been idle for
several minutes without any operation. Pull out the key, wait a few seconds, and reinsert the key for normal
4. Check the main circuit breaker. Push it in to reset the main circuit breaker located on the controller (in the rear
section of the Hurricane PMV).
5. Make sure both battery harnesses are firmly connected to the electronics module connectors and at the battery
6. Verify that the front console control harness is firmly plugged into the rear connector mounted on the front side
of the electronic control module.
7. If none of these steps work, call your local authorized service center.
What if the unit is dead and the brakes are released?
The Hurricane PMV was probably left in the manual freewheel mode. When the manual freewheel lever is pulled
up, the brakes are disengaged and all the power to the motor is cut. Push the lever down for normal operation.
What if the main circuit breaker (located on the utility tray) repeatedly trips?
1. Charge your batteries more frequently.
2. If this continues, have both batteries load tested by your authorized service center.
3. Check that foreign objects, such as rope or wire, have not become jammed in the wheel assemblies.
4. Make sure you do not exceed the maximum weight capacity of the PMV.
What if the console meter dips far downward when pressing the throttle control lever and the motor
surges and/or hesitates?
1. Fully charge your batteries.
2. Have your dealer perform a load test of both batteries.
3. Have the two motor brushes cleaned and replaced if necessary.
If you experience any problems with your Hurricane PMV that you are not able to solve, immediately contact your
provider for proper information, maintenance, and service.
