I have a 2032E2 that I put new batteries in rebuilt the motor

Customer Question

I have a 2032E2 that I put new batteries in rebuilt the motor and installed new cables and checked all connections and replaced the battery charger. With batteries fully charged I drive it for 5 or 10 mins it slows down and won't go in high speed. Pumps hot and battery leads are hot. Amp draw is between 170a and 200a. Lift still goes up and down and steers fine. Any ideas?

When you say pumps hot do you mean the pump motor?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
The pump its self is hot
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
It also seems to drain the batteries after only a few mins of driving
Expert:  Jeremy Railsback replied 2 years ago.
Do you have the drive hoses connected at the motors correct?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
That I can't say for sure I've never disconnected them but the problem existed when I bought it
Expert:  Jeremy Railsback replied 2 years ago.
Sounds to me like it's fighting itself.What's your serial number?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Where can I find the serial number

The hydraulic schematic doesn't do much justice to help discriminate which hose goes where really.Here's the service manual for your machine.https://csapps.jlg.com/OnlineManuals/Manuals/JLG/JLG%20Scissor%20Lifts/E2%20Scissors/Service_3120737_02-14-12_ANSI_English.pdfPage 78 is the hydraulic schematic.Sounds to me like either something is hooked up wrong hose wise or the drive motors are shot.

There is a knob on the valve block that's turned all the way in and if you turn it out at all the lift won't move
Expert:  Jeremy Railsback replied 2 years ago.
That's a freewheel valve.It's working properly if that happens.

Can the drive motors be rebuilt?
Expert:  Jeremy Railsback replied 2 years ago.
Yeah you can get rebuild kits for them from JLGCall JLG and ask for the parts department and get the part numbers.Then search online with those part numbers to find the best deal.1-***-***-****

If the drive motors are bad would that cause the pump and the pump motor lead to get excessively hot
Expert:  Jeremy Railsback replied 2 years ago.
Yes.Since it lifts and steers with no issue the only other thing the pump drives is the drive motors.So they're either hooked up wrong or they're bad one or the other.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Ok thanks
Expert:  Jeremy Railsback replied 2 years ago.
Absolutely. I hope you get it fixed up those are pretty reliable machines.Let me know if there's anything else I can help you with.
