    Me too! Exactly the same problem! Very frustrating considering this is a high end stroller (i.e. expensive!)

    same problem...call Quinny customer svc (see website) & they will send you a new wheel. i am going to try solutions suggested, though since I anticipate it will be a problem in the future!

    The front wheel gets stuck whenever it is lifted. And it cannot be blocked.

First remove the front wheel assembly from the pushchair by pressing in the two buttons on the sides and pulling it out.

Now look more closely at the assembly - on one side, just where it bends at an angle you will find a small hole, a couple of millimetres across. Take a small screwdriver or some other thin object and push it into the hole a little way, which presses a metal catch inwards, releasing the swivel assembly. While continuing to push this in pull the swivel assembly apart - grasp the wheels in one hand and the L-shaped plastic housing in the other and pull them apart.

Now clean all the surfaces with a piece of strong cloth.

When all the surfaces are very clean, take a can of TEFLON SPRAY and spray it onto all surfaces that rub against each other, before reassembling the wheel unit. Silicon grease is a cheaper alternative, but the teflon spray is supposed to be the best for lubricating all moving parts on the Buzz. Whatever you do, don't use WD40.

Hope this helps! Dan.

    Also, try furniture polish. This contains beeswax which is an excellent lubricant. works a treat! Also fantastic on squeaky door hinges!

I had the same problem today and I took the front wheel off at the black bit by pressing the buttons. If you look at where the wheel swivels there is a small hole in the plastic, twist the swivel wheel until you can see a button then use a small screw driver to press the button and the wheel should just pop off, you can then clean the place where it swivels, I also sprayed some silicon spray and it seems to twist more smoothly. It is east then to put the wheel back on just make sure the button is back lined up with its hole and slide the wheel back on.

I found that just taking it apart and lightly greasing the metal part with just normal olive oil works... for how long I'm unsure, but it's easy and cheap to do.

Instructions on model 343 - 8909N crib from JCP. How do I turn it into a toddler bed?


Did it come with an extra sideboard that connects the end sides together after you take one side off? The mattress spring or board should be sufficient to hold the end sides together but some come with a toddler bed side rail.

Need screws to put crib together


First, I would be very cautious. Several of these cribs were recalled. You can check the Consumer Products Safety Commission to see if your crib was involved.

http://search.cpsc.gov/query.html?col=pubweb&charset=iso-8859-1&qt=simplicity

Secondly, this company went out of business and I was unable to contact anyone about ordering parts or manuals.

If you have the manul, it will tell you how many and what size screws you need.

If you don't have that I would try measuring the distance the screws need to go this will tell you the lengh of the screws needed. Then measure the distance of the hole, this will tell you how large of a screw to buy 1/2" 1/4" etc.

You can take this to your local hardware store such as Ace, Home Depot, Lowe's and ask them to help you pick out the correct items.

How can i get replacement parts for a simplicity crib 8994w ..


This company went out of business and I was unable to contact anyone about ordering parts or manuals. Unfortunately the new company that bought them, isn't taking responsiblity for any Products from the original Manufacturer.

Note, the website phone number and email are non working.

However, I did get a number to a person at the Blackstreet Captial Partners, who help in the purchase of the company. This is the communcations dept. Ask for Don Meyer 202-898-0995.
