You may also have a puncture.

The tyre and inner tube can be removed in the same way as a standard bicycle tyre, you can google how to remove a tyre to get some more advise.

Once you have removed the inner tube, place it in a bowl of water and try to inflate it with the pump. If you see any bubbles escaping from the tube, you have a puncture and will need to repair, again, additional advise can be found online or talk with your local bike shop for direct advise on how to do this.

If you see no bubbles you need to check that air is not escaping from the pump, if its broken then it will just vent the air as soon as you put it in.

Hope that helps

I suggest a hand tire pump. A tire that operates at such a low pressure needs to be "finessed" Pump them until they are firm and hard to squeeze. That should do the trick! Thanks for using Fixya!

The bugaboo tires may be filled at any gas station with a std tire pump. You must only inflate to 15psi or 1 bar of pressure. This will take about 1 sec at the gas station pump which will do about 100 psi.

You can do it very easy :) I have done it before. BUT YOU MUST BE CAREFUL. As you can overpressurize and pop the tire of the wheel :)

Take it very easy with a very quick taps on the trigger atnd all will be well. It will fill very easily :)

I have an 3260dn laser printer and the "Paper Tray Empty" light is on and will not reset, even when I fill the paper tray

The problem could be caused by the pick up tires on your printer. If it doesn't pick, I suggest you call Lexmark Technical Support.

Placing the drain hose from the lg front load washer it leaks excess water and it spin but do not get the water out of clothes on spin cycle and I notice the drain hose is flat like a tire

Flat like a tire? That is an indication of a vacuum situation.

The first thing I would do is make sure that the pump is getting an activation voltage when the washing machine goes into spin. If it doesn't it is either your controller board or your timer circuit. If you are getting a signal at the pump then you will need to replace the pump.

Since I don't have your model number, I can't look up those parts to give you an idea of what the parts will run.

My bugaboo's not been used for a while and so the tyres are flat. i now need to use it again, but as there's no bond between tyre and wheel, i can't inflate!!!

Tyre will be loose on the rim when deflated the problem is Bugaboo don't put a lock nut on the valve stem so it can pop down into the wheel when you try to inflate it with that joke of a pump Bugaboo provide. Best option is to just pop down to your local bike shop. Next best is to go to your local gas station as the valve is the same size as a car valve. Squeeze the tire tightly at the valve stem pushing it out as far as you can so you can fit the air line. Bugaboo recommend 15 psi / 1 Bar this is way to soft and I always inflate to 30 psi / 2 Bar. Try somewhere between the two as it's a compromise between ease of pushing vs softness of ride.

Hi...I currently own Bugaboo Cameleon, which has the air filled wheels. I would really like to purchase foam wheels since it eliminates the part of filling air filled wheels. I would love to purchase...

Yes they do. I've never had a problem with the air filled tires for two reasons. I threw away that plastic joke of an air pump and filled the tires at the local garage to 2 bar / 30 psi not the silly 1 bar / 15 psi Bugaboo recommend. 15 psi is to soft and makes punctures far more likely.

I have lost the pump for my Bugaboo Frog, both of the tyres are completely flat. Where can I buy a new pump? Thanks, Paul

The Bugaboo pump is a plastic joke and a bad one at that. Most Bugaboo's have the same tyre valve as a car and a car foot pump from your auto shop or department store will be cheaper and faster. If you want a more portable pump check out your local bike shop they have far better ones available. Very old Bugaboos have the smaller bicycle valve the newest Bugaboo's now have foam filled tires.

How do a fix a flat tire on my weedeater riding mower? 13hp 38 series

I suggest a trip to the auto parts store. Buy a tubless tire repair kit. Ask the sales person how to do the job (it is easy). Repair the tire on the rim and try to do it without the bead coming off the rim. Next, take an air pump and pump it up! If the tire has a tube, you must take the tire off the rim and repair the tube...Good luck...Lee
