If your hoverboard is leaning excessively forward or backward, it can be challenging to ride and potentially dangerous. This comprehensive repair guide will help you diagnose and resolve this issue, usually caused by a faulty gyroscope or misaligned pressure pads. Please ensure you have the necessary skills and tools before proceeding and only follow this guide if you understand the risks involved.
- Screwdriver set
- Gyroscope replacement
- Pressure pad replacement
The most common cause of a hoverboard leaning excessively forward or backward is a malfunctioning gyroscope or misaligned pressure pads.
The most common solution is to replace the faulty gyroscope or realign the pressure pads.
Regular maintenance and inspection of your hoverboard's internal components are crucial for its longevity and performance. Addressing issues like excessive forward or backward lean promptly can prevent further damage and ensure safe operation.
Step 1: Power off and disconnect the hoverboard
- Ensure the hoverboard is turned off and disconnected from the charger before proceeding.
