The back brake dosen't hold so i can't trust it.

We bought a Powertwin Dual Traveller second hand and the back brake dosen't hold so we can't use it. I'm not sure if the back brake bar is bent and we haven't got the instruction manual to see what it's supposed to look like. Any advice?

Hi,

This does sound like in the past the back break bar (connected to the rear wheels) has had too much pressure applied to it. The break bar itself should have a gentle bend to it, but I stress a gentle bend.
I would suggest that you contact www.johnstonprams.co.uk to get some information on getting this repaired as the bar will have to be drilled off, straightened and re-revitted back on by the sounds of it. Dont panic too much as this is not hugely expensive and will be well worth the hassle.

I hope this helps.

I HAVE RASCAL 235 SCOOTER A LOUD SCREECHING NOISE COMES FROM THE BRAKE AREA IT IS INTERMITENT


Use compressed air to blow dust and rust out of the brake assembly. If the noise persists you may need to disassemble the brake, clean it by hand - especially the brake pad.
You may also have the armature nut misaligned at the brake tearing the brake pad apart. Loosen it when you are cleaning the brake and then remount it 1/32" back away from the back end of the brake.

Jane Powertwin pro - how do i fix the raincovers on to car seats


Hi,

When you are using the carseats (Rebel or Strata I expect) then make sure that the carseat handles are in the upward postition (as they would be when you carry them) the handles will then support the raincover.

Hope this helps.

How do you unfold the power twin frame?


The release is on the right hand side of the pushchair when you are holding the handle bar. It is about two thirds of the way down and is usually light grey with open written on it. Put Jane powertwin into U tube and KiddieCare do a video to demo this.

Jane Powertwin Pro Buggy Problems


To lock the front wheel there is a small black button that can be twisted. It is very stiff on my buggy but if you fiddle with it while the wheel is straight it will lock it.

Broken wheel


Hi,

I would suggest that you contact www.johnstonprams.co.uk who will be able to put you in the right direction.

By the way, this sounds like you have a Powertrack Twin type pram.

I hope this helps.

This is exactly what my husband did to our powertwin just 6wks into using it he managed to twist it slightly back into position and it holds so we have just put up with it but my god was I pissed at him! I was told it could be repaired by replacing the seat unit by a local pram shop but this seemed expensive we have managed with it like this for a yr no problems hope this helps.
