How To Solve – Vibrating Hoverboard & Spinning In Circles

Is your hoverboard not responding correctly to your movements? Is it spinning and vibrating? If the answer is a Yes, we’ll help you understand why this is happening and how you can fix it yourself. 

The most common reason for vibrating hoverboard and spinning in circles is that you have not applied enough weight on the hoverboard footboard. You must firmly place both your feet so that your weight is equally distributed on both the platforms. If you put just 1 leg on the platform, then your hoverboard will start moving in circular motion. We’ve mentioned that the minimum weight limit is 20 kgs. This is to help in effective self balancing of the hoverboard. 

So place your hoverboard on a flat surface and try standing firmly on the platform putting equal weight on both the platforms and your issue of hoverboard spinning in circles will be resolved.

6.5" Black hoverboard 4You may already know that the hoverboard has sensors below the footpad. These sensors detect your foot movements and accordingly move the wheels. This system provides the instructions to your hoverboard about speed, direction, forward, and reverse movement.  There are two sensors – one for each foot. If your hoverboard has suddenly started vibrating or spinning, in all probability, those sensors have gone out of sync. 

When incorrect information is fed to the controller, these unexpected movements happen.

How to fix the hoverboard? 


You need to calibrate your board again. Calibration resets all previously stored data. When this data is gone, you can reinitialize the hoverboard.


  1. Turn off your hoverboard
  2. Place it on a flat surface (this is crucial, or you may face issues again)
  3. Start the hoverboard in calibration mode (this is usually done by keeping the power button pressed for some seconds until you see the LED flashing)
  4. Turn off the hoverboard after a few seconds.

Now it is time for a test. Use the board like you usually do. If you faced problems moving on grass, do try it out on the grass. If this works, you’re good to go.

If, after calibration, the hoverboard still doesn’t function properly, wait for few minutes and recalibrate the board using the above steps again. Sometimes you may need to recalibrate a few times before your device starts responding correctly.

Master Reset

If you have tried calibrating your gadget multiple times with no success, the next step to try is to do a master reset.

For Segway, the master reset requires you to place it on a flat surface and press the power-button for about 10 seconds until a red light appears. After that, you should power on the device. 

Refer to the user guide and follow the steps to master reset the device.

Hopefully, this should solve your problem

Remote Controlled Hoverboards

Users of remote-controlled hoverboards can follow the same instructions, but calibration and master reset are generally harder using a remote. Refer to the user’s manual to try those two techniques.

Still Reading?

If you’re still reading, you’ve probably tried these techniques already. If all these ways have failed, then you’re probably looking at a technical problem inside the device. A gyroscope is a sensor that helps provide input to the controller and regulates the direction and movement of the device. Maybe the gyroscope has gone faulty.

While there are many YouTube videos and DIY guides to diagnose the problem but opening the hoverboard, we recommend that you take it to a repair person and get it done professionally.
