Re: Problems with releasing front wheel lock

I have just fixed my stroller which had a similar problem. The wheel was still swivelling but it was sticking slightly. I noticed that the pin that locks the wheel in place was half out and therefore the wheel was getting caught on it. I undid the nut that holds the end of the wheel lock cable in place and tightened this as tight as I could which pulls the pin back into place (making sure that the switch is in swivel position). I then put the washer and nut back on (making sure cable was as tight as possible).

Wheels wont move when in a shop

Some models have front and rear brakes, also some have locks to prevent the wheels from swiveling check those items first. The next step would be to flip the stroller over and try to spin the wheels, sometimes debris can jam the wheels.

The front wheel doesn't turn, is that how supposed to be?

If you have model 9109CT or 9139CT, it has a lock for the swivel action. Instructions for releasing the lock are included in this pdf file:

The front wheel wobbles when it's on swivel, what

The wobbling front wheel problem is easily solved. Simply remove the two philips screws from the plastic cap covering the from wheel assembly on the foot plate. (Where the break cable goes into the swivel tube) Now tighten up the large black nut with a spanner, replace the black cap and your done!

My quinny buzz front wheel keeps getting stuck half way and i end up trying to push the chair with the front wheel sideways which is impossible. i have been advised to clean the front wheel out as it gets...

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.

Broken front wheels on zooper double stroller

All is not lost yet, Contact Zooper directly to see if this can be fixed before throwing out your stroller. 1-888-742-9899 They have an online submission form on their website under the FAQ -"I have an older zooper stroller. How can I go about getting parts or service?" but when I went there, it seemed to be a warranty registration link instead.

Good Luck! from Moms Just Know

If you mean do they pivot, no they do not. We turned ours by popping a wheelie, or by lifting up the back wheels and turning.

No, there's no way to make it swivel. The Zooper Boogie has a swivel wheel- or it can be locked into place with the flip of a switch!

Making my zooper available to 2 children with an attachment

First of all, a heartfelt congratulations! Second, it's definitely challenging having children so close together.

The Zooper Boogie is a good stroller and it's engineered in a VERY specific way to provide baby safety and comfort. It does this by providing a slightly lower center of gravity focused on the rotating single front wheel. This makes it more maneuverable for parents and keeps baby at the center of the swivel. Attaching a second compartment on the front or back of this particular carriage would undermine the engineered balance, tremendously. At least one occupant would suffer from an extended swing when maneuvering that could be more than just uncomfortable, especially if it was extended forward over the front wheel. Some stroller companies might be willing to do this, Zooper doesn't.

The best alternative that they offer is the Tango which is engineered for two. I know that you mentioned that you wouldn't purchase a double stroller but modifying a single might be uncomfortable and possibly dangerous for your little ones. I would recommend against it.

Once again, congratulations on your blessings!
