    Did you get your potentiometer? I think I have the same problem and the manufacturer of my mother's scooter has gone bust. Sgt Wookie has been very helpful and the only concern I have is that the speed control throttle has only about 18 degrees of rotation in either direction and the centre point is must be dead. The RVQ24Y series appears to be one big turn of 300 degrees rather than one turn of 18 deg left and one turn of 18 deg right about a central point. Is this the same as your scooter and did the part do its job

    Welcome to the forums.

    Rather than leave your post at the end of a two year old thread - you have your own.

    Can you check to see if there is a mechanical stop that limits the rotation? Pots should turn 270° to 320° depending on their construction.
