Re: my brake on my quinny buzz no longer works - help!
This happened to me on both brake pedals, nothing happened when I tried.to put them on, the pedals just did not move at all. I tried adjusting the brakes as per the dorel video on you tube, but still nothing. My husband found the solution though. He worked some oil into both pedal mechanisms and worked it through until both pedals moved again, once he had plied through a couple of times, both pedals and the brake now work fine, just turned out the pedals has seized over the years and just needed a good oiling. Worth giving this a try.

Hi, apply the brake.
Go round to front of buggy.
Hold the 2 large grey buttons on side of frame.
1 pushes down 1 pushes forwards do this & pull buggy down towards you, this will fold it as long as the brake is on.
Hi you need to apply the brake 1st. then stand at the front, there is 2 grey buttons either side of the seat on the 2 round bits. 1 you push down the other you slide forwards, keep hold of them & pull it downwards towards your feet. This will then fold down.
If you run your hands down either side of the carry handle (on the hood) you will find a small (usuall grey) rectangular button either side. Push the buttons toward the floor, and the hood should then lower.
In the middle of the underneath of the pushing handle, below where the hand brake lever is there should be a button. If there is, this is what you do. 1) put the foot brake on so the rear wheels wont turn. 2) unclip the clips on the frame that allow you to adjust the height of the pushing handle, they open up, and leave them open, like this the handle you push the buggy with should slide up and down. 3) pull this handle out to its tallest position 4) Hold the handle and press the button mentioned at the start in and hold it in 5) Then quite quickly push the handle down as though you were either pushing it to lower its pushing height, or shoving it away in a temper. It needs to be a firm and quick movement.
Ta da!! After a couple of tries it should click and fold up.
Hi, you can download the manual from the quinny website, but as a quick guide, the best I found was - first stand with your foot against the front wheel (so it doesnt move forward) then press the grey buttons on either side of the chassis and at the same time draw the frame downwards towards your foot, please remember you can only fold down with the seat in place if the seat is facing forward (ie baby facing outwards) it wont fold down with the seat facing mum, there are also demos on you tube, hope ive helped and not been too complicated :)
Hi to unfold undo the clip if there is 1, some don't have them. lift the handle slightly then it should unfold it self.
To fold you need to apply the brake, stand in frnt then the 2 large grey buttons either side of seat, 1 pushes in 1 comes forward, do this & pull down towards your feet this will fold it up. Don't mistake the small grey buttons on side of seat they are to lay seat back/forwrsd etc; the large buttons are on the frame.
This sounds like a faulty quinny. If it is collapsing while you are pushing it, you should immediately contact quinny: find out the contact information on quinny.com . It is country specific, so you will have to choose yours and go from there. Let them know that it is collapsing on its own and they should send you a new chassis.
