Phil and Teds Vibe front wheel doesn't swivel

Hi there! Phil and Teds Vibe problem here - the axle on the front wheel was bent, so the stroller was pulling to one side when pushed and the front wheel wouldn't swivel. We got the replacement wheel just recently and the axle on it seems a bit thicker than the one we had before. The wheel fits very tight and, as a result, doesn't swivel well at all. I read some reviews on the net and it seems a lot of people are having problems with front wheel on Vibe - it either has a shaking problem or it doesn't swivel. Just wondering if maybe anyone has found a solution to this as using my stroller with two kids in it right now is a constant struggle...

I had this problem 4 times with mine!!! the company tried to repair (unsuccessful) and then replaced it. The same problem occurrred with the second one after a month. Phil and Ted's took it back and put a thing called "super lube" on it. At first it was no better, but with a little use it seems to have come good.....for now. This is a terrible stroller that I really regret buying!!!!

My Phil & Teds Vibe shakes in the front wheel uncontrollably. Do I need a new front wheel?


Hi!

Assuming your tyres have the correct pressure, uncontrollable shaking in 3-wheeld swiveling strollers is usually caused by bearing slack.
Please check the front wheel bearing. It should allow the wheel to rotate freely but it should not be loose on the axle. (ie. It should not slide sideways on the axle.)
In this case you would need a new front fork/wheel assembly.

Please let a dealer have a look at it. As the Vibe has not been around for very long, you may still have warranty.

I hope this helps.

Just bought the Dash. I feel that it pulls when you walk. Also having trouble with front wheel when in the swivel position. It will swivel one way but when you try to push/pull the stroller to line the...


One or more wheels may be crooked, either the axle is bent or there's the manufacturer defect. I would call the store you purchased it from to see if they can warranty the repair or replace any faulty parts.

(Personally for the price I don't recommend Phil & Ted's stroller as there are far better make & models out there that won't have such issue. I don't want to discourage you but that's been our experience with these strollers)
