Forklift Battery Troubleshooting

Forklift Battery Troubleshooting: If only they could last forever.

Chances are your battery is going to give you problems at some point in time. When those problems arise, we want to you to be prepared which is why we made this forklift battery troubleshooting guide. Below is a list of common problems associated with forklift batteries that occur over time. Listed are the different battery troubles, the conditions what come with them, what’s causing the problem, and how to collectively act upon it.

 

forklift battery troubleshooting intella liftparts

Short Circuited

Condition:

  • Very low cell voltage and specific gravity during recharging and discharging
  • Low gassing while charging
  • Extreme rise of electrolyte temperature during charging phase
  • Fast drop of gravity after charging

 

Why is this happening? Probable cause:

  • Short circuited due to a dropping of active materials
  • Short circuited due to a broken separator
  • Short circuited due to advancing of broken pieces during manufacturing of battery

 

Where to go from here:

  • Replace the faulty cell with a single charged cell

 

 

Sulfation

Condition:

  • While charging, the voltage and electrolyte temperature are much higher than the standard
  • Gassing is accelerated from charging and the gravity does not rise to normal
  • Voltage drops quickly while discharging
  • In some extreme cases, plates may become whitened

 

Why is this happening? Probable cause:

  • Repeatedly overcharging and discharging of battery
  • Plates exposed to open air for extended period of time
  • Lack of care during storage process
  • Excessively high gravity while using battery
  • Impurities causing excessive self discharge of battery

 

Where to go from here:

  • If the battery is in rather early conditions, remove the probable cause
  • Replace the faulty cell with a single charged cell if damage can’t be fixed

 

 

Excessive Self Discharging

Condition:

  • Quick drop in gravity after charging
  • Charging capacity of battery significantly reduced

 

Why is this happening? Probable cause:

  • Using impure water in the battery
  • Specific gravity higher than it should be
  • Excessively high temperature of electrolytes
  • Battery container has been insufficiently cleaned

 

Where to go from here:

  • Take daily care of the battery
  • Replace the faulty cell with a single charged cell

 

 

Exchange of Polarity

Condition:

  • Polarity switched around in some cells during discharging or high temperature of electrolytes
  • Electrolytes dissolve causing an emission of gas that changes the polarity of the battery

 

Why is this happening? Probable cause:

  • Caused by quick discharge without noticing a low capacity in a cell
  • Ill preparation of certain means like an equation charge

 

Where to go from here:

  • Replace faulty cell
  • Take daily care of the battery

 

Forklift Battery Troubleshooting Intella Liftparts

Other Possible Factors

1. Color of electrolyte has changed to brown

– Due to corrosion of positive plate mixing into electrolytes

– Check voltage and gravity of battery

– Replace electrolyte

 

2. Chlorine smell during charging

– Due to sea water mixing into electrolytes

– Replace electrolyte and charge the battery until the smell is gone

– Replace cells

 

3. Electrolyte excessively reduced

– Battery cells are cracked

– High electrolyte temperature while charging

– Find causes and follow repair procedures

 

4. Unnaturally high electrolyte temperature

– Due to lack of electrolytes

– Due to shorted cells and/or reversed polarity

– Solder battery

 

5. Heat from connector portion

– Bad connector contact

My Forklift Battery Smells Funny

My forklift battery smells a lot like rotten eggs – Why?

We hate to be the bearer of bad news but the smell of rotten eggs Forklift Battery Charger Intella Liftparts
coming from your forklift battery is not a good thing. The unpleasant smell resembling that of expired eggs is actually sulfur. Forklift batteries are made from lead plates that are covered in a lead oxide paste. This then sits in a pool of sulfuric acid. Almost every vehicular battery, regardless of the application, will at some point get a bad cell. When one of these battery cells stop taking a charge, the battery charger will throw everything it’s got at it to try and bring up the voltage. This causes the cell to get very hot and will boil the sulfuric acid stored inside the battery. When sulfuric acid gets cooked, you’re left with the rotten egg smell. Now if you’ve got an internal combustion forklift, the alternator could be overcharging your battery also resulting in the funky smell.

 

Forklift Battery Chargers Intella LiftpartsSo now I know why it smells, but what do I do now?

First thing’s first: Turn that charger off and let the battery cool down. No one likes boiling sulfuric acid. For safety reasons, place a tag on the battery to make sure no one uses it. Get in contact with a professional to check out your battery and charger. Have the professional replace the bad cell. If you can’t replace the cell, replace the battery. Following the replacement of the battery or the battery cell, check to see if your charger is working properly. No one wants to buy a new battery only to have it ruined by a bad battery charger.

What caused my battery to fail?

Assuming that it wasn’t your battery charger that was the problem, there are a few things that may have caused your battery to fail.

  • Water – If the water that you add to the battery is full of dissolved minerals, the minerals can accumulate making it rather difficult for the battery to take a charge. This can cause the cell to overheat.
  • Warehouse Floor – Working on an uneven floor can jar the forklift battery, knocking the oxide paste off of the plates causing them to short out.
  • Manufacturer’s Defect – Every now and then a battery may flat out under-perform. This can be due to a defect in the battery. Check with the manufacturer of the battery in regards to warranty information as many times they will be covered for a certain number of years.

Forklift Forks: Everything you need to know

What good is your forklift without a great pair of forks??

 

forklift forks intella liftpartsForklift forks will start to get worn the first day of use. If you’re company is one that often uses a lift truck, then it’s a very, very good idea to regularly inspect the forks. Now there are a few things to look for while inspecting the forks. The thickness of the fork blade should match the thickness of the back of the fork. The heel of the fork must be checked for cracks. Make sure there is no differentiating height of the fork tips. You must be able to read the factory markings of the forks. Also, the hooks of the forks must be checked for any deformations. If a problem occurs with any of these inspection points, the forks must be replaced. Lucky for you, Intella Liftparts carries all sorts and sizes of quality forklift forks and accessories. Our forks are manufactured to meet or exceed two major specifications: ISO2330 and ANSI (The American National Standards Institute). Intella also offers a variety of special application forks which discussed later in the article.

Impco Model J Regulator and Friends

The Impco Model J Regulator is a fantastic product, but like all machine parts, get worn out and need care. This blog page is dedicated to repairing and/or replacing your regulator. Impco is a manufacturer of fuel system components that has been around since 1958. Impco works with fuel system components  for alternative fuels like LPG/propane gas that allow for a cleaner environment. You can find Impco parts in a variety of different forklift brands such as Hyster, Nissan, Toyota, Yale and many others. Intella carries the most popular pressure regulator, the Impco Model J, along with a few other models, accessories and kits.

 

 

How to Repair and Rebuild Your Impco Model J Regulator:

 

 

 

Full Replacements:

So your regulator is on it’s way to the forklift graveyard? Have no fear. Here at Intella we have a couple different models so you can find the perfect replacement to get your forklift running smooth again.

 

 

Classic model:  Impco Model J Regulator

Impco model j regulator intella liftparts

 

The Impco Model J regulator/vaporizer delivers reliable performance and pressure output consistency. It’s reliability, especially with questionable fuel quality, has made it an industry standard for many years. Two vapor outlet pressures are available. The standard Impco Model JB (this version, meaning blue spring) provides -1.5″wc (0.37 kPa). The optional JO (J-orange) provides 0.5″ wc (0.12 wPa). The port size and mounting pad locations are identical to the Impco Cobra regulator and include a primary pressure test port and “left” or “right” fuel outlets.

 

Replaces:
Hyster 0213549
Nissan 16310-90H71
Nissan 16310-90H72
Toyota 23530-U2000-71
Toyota 23530-U2001-71
Yale 517079800

 

 


 

 

Base model:  Generic Model JB Regulator

impco model j regulator intella liftparts

The generic model JB regulator and the Impco Model J are similar in build, although a noticeable difference would be the primer button found on the generic model JB. Impco no longer manufactures Model J’s with a primer button but the generic model JB does have one. The primer button can allow for a shot of propane  into the engine for starting purposes. The “B” stands for blue spring.  This is by far the most common model J regulator.  The blue spring offers negative 0.37 kPa (1.5 inches w.c.). The Impco Model JB diaphragm is made of hydrin and is suitable for most applications.

 

 

Repair Kits:

Don’t think you need a brand new regulator? Save some money and pick up a rebuild kit. You can repair and rebuild Model J Regulators using kits made of hydrin or silicone. You can rebuild a Model J regulator as many times as you can get your paws on a rebuild kit. Oh and you’re in luck because here at Intella, we regularly stock a few different kits.

 

What’s the difference between hydrin and silicone you ask?

Well to start off, silicone performs better in colder climates than hydrin. This is due to the fact that the silicone diaphragm stays noticeably more flexible in colder weather. The physical makeup of silicone is actually lighter than hydrin too, making a little bit more responsive. Lastly and very advantageous, is that silicone has a better resistance to being damaged from fuel.

 

 

Classic Kit: Impco Model J Repair Kit

impco model j regulator intella liftparts

Most common Impco regulator repair kit, mostly used on forklift propane fuel systems. Repair kit for the popular Model J forklift LPG regulator. Includes hydrin diaphragm, secondary seats, gaskets and primary diaphragm. Exactly what you need to rebuild an Impco Model J regulator.

Forklift Parts: The People’s Favorites

Note: Shop JCB parts online now!

 

 Forklift Parts – Who Knew Some Parts Could Be So Popular?

Maybe not the high school quarterback, but almost just as popular, these forklift parts are some of the most sought out products here at Intella. This week’s blog from your favorite parts dealer will be discussing the most searched upon terms. What’s everyone really looking for when clicking on that trusty Google Search bar? Well keep reading to find out!

 

 

Intella Forklift Blue Light

When working with heavy and possibly dangerous products, I’ve always been told safety first. This principle seems to hold true as the Intella Blue Spot Light is one of the most searched about forklift parts we sell here at the Intella headquarters. Since 2012, we’ve actually sold more blue lights than anyone else in the USA. Not bad I’d say, but it’s not our marketing department doing the work. These Blue Spot Lights really speak for themselves. They are UL listed and created for the toughest of environments, built with a metal casing and stainless steel hardware. Not to mention you can use this light on almost any forklift, whether electric, LPG or diesel powered. This LED light is also extremely long life, with a span greater than 20,000 hours.

*Maybe you just drank 3 pots of coffee and 2 Red Bulls one Friday afternoon and decide you want to jump the loading dock with your forklift. Well here’s some good news since this stunt will probably end with bad news; the Blue Spot has a 12 month warranty so we’ll replace it for you (just not the rest of the forklift).

Tie Rod (includes bearing and nut)

 

 

Your forklift’s engine can be in great working condition for years on end. This is great! Unfortunately, the rest of the forklift does not have the same capability. Every time you use your steering wheel (nearly every time you use your forklift), it puts stress on the tie rod ends. So as you can see, they must be replaced over time due to wear and tear. This tie rod end is a direct replacement for Hyster part number 185870. This part also includes the bearing and nut needed for proper assembly.

 

 

Intella Single Phase 36V/140A Lift Truck Battery Charger

 

If you don’t have a working battery, it’s a safe assumption that you aren’t going to be moving very far and if you can’t move, neither will your product. With a quality battery charger this problem can be diminished. Coming up 3rd for the most sought out forklift parts would be this 36 volt 140 amp single phase charger.

 

Tech:
• Charging profile suitable for single and double shift operations
• Automatic equalizing/preservation
• Charging profile control by microprocessor
• Automatic start, charging process and shut off
• Advanced visualization by 5 LED’s /Date storage memory
• External optional keypad for programming and diagnostic.

Toyota Forklift Parts: Top 5 Selling Products

The first ever Toyota forklift was produced in 1956. It has been some time since then and things have changed. Toyota forklifts today receive some of the highest brand ratings so it’s no wonder why we sell so many of their parts and replacements. To compliment the company’s work, we will cover the top 5 selling Toyota forklift parts in today’s market.

1) Toyota 2 Sided Key

Toyota forklift parts
2 Sided Key – part no. 57591-23330-71

At number 1, we have a Toyota key to start off the list (no pun intended). We here at Intella know you jump for joy when you see your forklift. You want to hop in and get cruising around a fast as possible, we get it. Well with the help of the aftermarket double sided key, you can start your lift truck just that much quicker. Not long ago, forklifts came with one sided keys until it was decided the teeth would be cut into both sides. This allows for a quicker start, reducing the time you may be fumbling around with a traditional key. This key is most commonly used on the 7 and 8 series Toyota forklifts.

2) Toyota Forklift Seat

Toyota forklift parts
Forklift Seat – part no. 7FGCU25

Forklift seats can take a beating and often need to be replaced. That might give some reason as to why this replacement Toyota forklift seat ranks number 2 on our list of parts. Although designed for Toyota 6 and 7 series forklifts, this seat can be made to fit on almost all forklift brands with a little work. Featuring a wingback style seat, driver safety is increased as you are more protected from sliding off the forklift. This is a black vinyl, semi-suspension seat equipped with a retractable seat belt. This low cost, high quality seat also includes mounting rails.

*Two thumbs up*

   For an inside look, check out our video:

     For those who have this seat or are thinking about

purchasing one, you can see how to properly install it here:

3) Toyota LPG/Propane Filter Pad

Toyota forklift parts
Filter Pad – part no. 23671-U1101

Coming in at number 3 on our list of Toyota forklift parts is the LPG/Propane Filter Pad. If your fuel regulator isn’t running as it should be, try picking up a new filter pad for a quick and also cheap fix. Ranking 3rd on the list of most sold Toyota  forklift parts, it’s clear this pad is replaced from time to time.

   For those who have picked up this filter pad or are thinking

  of doing so, check this video out on how to quickly replace it:

4) Toyota LPG/Propane Filter Kit

Toyota forklift parts
Filter Kit – part no. 04236-U1100-71

Big number 4 on our list of Toyota forklift parts would be the LPG/Propane Filter Kit. A new fuel regulator can be expensive, and from what I’ve learned, spending less money is a good thing. Instead of trashing your regulator, check out the Toyota filter rebuild kit. Sometimes a new set of filters is all you need to get your regulator running correctly again.

      For those who have purchased the kit or are

   thinking about it, here’s a short installation video:

5) Toyota Forklift Oil Filter

Toyota forklift parts
Oil Filter – part no. 90915-YZZF1

Not all products sold are glamorous ones, but the filter pictured here sure is an effective one. At number 5 we have a top quality, replacement Toyota oil filter. This filter is a spin-on type filter designed for Toyota 4Y engines.
