Board keep making squeaky noise

Why does it happen? Your board may have loose screws and trunks. You need to make sure all parts are tightened.

Speed wobbles

The cause of speed wobbles is that the trucks are too loose. Wheels will deflect and cause speed wobbles. So, tighten your trucks before riding is good advice.

The battery won’t charge

This happens sometimes to my two-year-old powered board. Your battery is getting old, and the internal components also start to degrade. This, try to recharge your battery some times, if it doesn’t give any response, you need to either replace it or bring it to the repair shop to see how you are gonna deal with this.

Clicking bearings

Maybe your bearings are dry and you need to re-lube them. Relubricating bearings should be done regularly. Bearings won't last long if they're often kept too dry, be aware of this. Too tight axle nut also leads to clicking bearings, check it, too.

Loud braking sound

This problem occurs more often with belt-driven electric skateboards. You must adjust the belt tension accordingly. For this task you need to have some tools to help you, the steps can be found in the guidebook provided by the manufacturer.
