Question about Graco Simplicity Rock n Roll 330 Crib

1 Answer

Graco swing has very limited range of motion. It still "works", but something inside is damaged or fell off. I have taken it apart to see the parts in motion, and it all looks like it is doing what is should, and it doesn't look like anything is broken. But when the swivel pin moves, it moves in a wide slot that only contacts and causes the swing to rock at the end of it's motion. Does that make sense? It looks like a piece fell out, but I have not found anything on the floor . . . Can I buy replacement parts somewhere or fashion one that will work?

We bought a used swing (lovein hug). It was in super condition but we noticed the same thing where it would hardly swing. My husband, who seems to analyze things that don't work, took it apart to see why so much slop was in there. He couldn't find anything obvious why it was doing that, so he took a piece of small cardboard (off an oatmeal box) and wrapped it around to make it fit on both sides and wrapped it with black electrical tape and stuck it back in. It's hardly noticable. We also changed the legs around to make sure the legs make the swing lay back.

Hope this helps!

How to change battery in fisher price my little lamb bassinet


Sometimes your little one likes being held over your shoulder. Sometimes on your knee. Other times, she wants to be cradled in your arms as you rock her side-to-side or back-and-forth. But for the times you need to put baby down, here's a swing that cradles and swings, soothes and entertains her just the way she likes it! It surrounds her in plush, cozy fabrics and a canopy that cocoons her. The soothing continues with eight tunes and a side-to-side cradle motion, a lot like the way you rock her in your arms. When your little lamb is ready for play, the swinging changes to a back-and-forth motion (because babies love variety) and she's engaged with nature sound tracks and a mobile featuring a mirror, floating clouds and little lambs to entertain her. Includes six soothing swing speeds, little plush friend tethered right to the removable tray, and bead bar. Sturdy steel frame has legs that fold in for storage and portability. Requires 4 D batteries. Weight Limit: 25 lbs. (11.3 kg) Developmental Guidelines: Use cradle swing from birth until a child becomes active and can climb out of the seat. Better for Baby... Soothes Soothing music and alternate swinging motions help calm baby and promotes a sense of security. Plush fabrics enhance baby's sense of security by providing comfort. Seeing baby's own image in the mirror encourages self-recognition, enhancing emotional development. Engages Seeing baby's own reflection and other objects in mirrored globe stimulates baby's visual sense. Rich fabrics and textures stimulate baby's tactile sense. Watching and anticipating motion of lambs and clouds fosters visual tracking skills. Listening to nature sounds as well as musical selections strengthens auditory skills. Better for Mom... Choice of three positions in one swing-variety for baby and convenience when you want baby facing you! Easy to convert from one position to another. Folds for storage and portability.

I bought it and put new batteries in it and the music will play and i press the buttons to make it swing and it doesnt do anything. It doesnt make any noise like its trying to swing or nothing. Could that...


Graco swing motors are known for going bad, sorry. I have had no luck trying
to fix them as you tear them down and the electronics are what has gone bad.
They have a motion sensor in them along with a complicated motor to swing swivel
that if you lose a small ball that is the interface, you are doomed.
Time for a new one and if you buy one at a garage sale be sure to run it with weight in
it for at least 5 minutes. That culls out the bad motor ones!

Pins fell out of side rail..


Most if not all of the simplicity brand drop-side cribs have been recalled, including the Graco 8740.

Here is the CPSP link regarding this crib:
http://www.cpsc.gov/CPSCPUB/PREREL/prhtml09/09260list.html
http://www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/prerel/prhtml07/07307.html

According to the CPSP information the company appears to be out of business to some degree and are not providing repair kits.

If you know where you purchased the crib, check to see what their policy is regarding recalled baby products.

We had purchased ours at walmart almost 8 years ago and were able to return it to another store in a different state for a full refund last summer. They did not need a receipt received, they just needed the manufacturer label on the part that the mattress lies on.

Because ours was older, the customer service clerk did have to work hard to find the crib in their system, but once she did, it was not problem at all.
