I had the same problem. It was a sort of buildup which was ammazingly problematic. I undid the small screws on the inside of the wheels (1 screw per wheel). Be careful because a spring and black plastic piece will fly out. then use a screw driver to push the gray wheel removal button. You will find that it seems sort of stuck. Clean inside the plastic chamber and the slider piece...I just used my fingers. Then you will see that it slides freely. Put the sliding piece in the correct position for when the wheel is removed...button depressed. Put the wheel on. Push the sliding piece with a screw driver so that the wheel is locked and the button is popped out. Put the spring back in and the black plastic piece back....hold it on and redo the screw. The wheel should be locked on. I am not sure if you would be able to remove it and put it on again...I think so, but I am not trying since I don't usually remove the wheels anyway. I hope this works for you too! Good luck!

Quinny Buzz making clicking noise when pushed


Hi Angie

The most common reason for this is a build up of dirt or debris on the chassis which would cause friction and which can lead to noise. We would recommend that you remove the seat unit and the wheels from the chassis and give it a thorough clean with some furniture polish and a soft cloth. Get someone to help you and ensure the entire central tube is cleaned (where the mechanism slides up and down for fold / unfold) - Mind your fingers! Clean the axel of each wheel (where it fits into the chassis) and on the plastic knuckle section where the seat unit fits into the chassis. This should stop the noises.

If you find it does not resolve the issue, please contact the customer care team for further assistance -

Hi

It could be dirt caught in the wheel. Remove the wheel unit and clean with furniture polish and a soft cloth before attaching into place again.

My front wheel sticks


Hi,

The most common reason for this is a build up of dirt and debris. Remove it from the pushchair and clean it regularly to prevent this from happening. Clean with furniture polish or dry Teflon spray (found in the laundry aisle of larger supermarkets) Do not clean with oil based lubricants as these will leave a sticky residue and attract more dirt and debris and cause additional issues.

When pushing my quinny the back wheel starts to come of byitself


Hi Lisa - It could be that if there is dirt and debris on the wheel axel or inside the connection it would prevent the wheel clicking in properly. Remove both back wheels and give a wash in warm soapy water then dry thoroughly before putting back into place. Does the same side wheel fall off even if you swap the back wheels over? If this is the case it would indicate a chassis problem rather than a wheel problem. If it is the same wheel that always falls off it would suggest a wheel problem.

Puncture back wheel


you take the wheel off by pushing in a button at the side of the wheel on the inside, it is a quick release wheel and it simply clicks back in when it's been repaired. hope this helps!!

Problem with the front wheel Quinny buzz 3


Hi,

This does sound like you have got a build up of dirt within the wheel assembly unit. I would suggest that you remove the entire wheel (push the two black buttons either side of the axle and pull) then clean the entire wheel in warm water. Lubricate the moving parts with a thick lubricant (something like vaseline, not DW40 as this attracts dust) then pop it back on, that should sort it out.
If the wheel is still not working, then contact your retailier if still within warranty (two years chassis and one year fabrics). If this is out of warranty, contact www.quinny.com who will be able to sell you a replacement wheel assembly.

I hope this helps.

Urban Jungle: push very heavy, squeaks


Alex,
You may try removing the wheels, cleaning all dirt and debris from the axel and the wheel, coating both the axel and inside of the wheel with silicone spray. If the axel is badly pitted from the dirt rubbing against it, you can use some emery cloth to smooth it back out before putting the wheel back on.

Single wheel will not lock into place


The first thing I would suggest would be to make sure the black knob above the front wheel is not pushed in but popped up. Secondly, I would try to clean the front wheel fork and inside the base. This is a routine procedure to upkeep the stroller. All you need to do is wipe down the short metal stick that locks into the base of the stroller and inside the base itself and then put some Vaseline around the short metal stick and inside the base. Hopefully, that should do the trick.

WHEELS!!!


you have to replace the spring inside the wheel hub. the same thing was happening to me and my husband made a new spring out of spring steel. I guess they just loose their strength after a while. It was very frustrating!
