Question about Quinny Buzz Jogger

1 Answer

The front wheel on my quinny buzz 3 hardly moves and makes steering the pram very difficult. Especially on tiled floors, such as shopping centres. The wheel isn't locked, so it's on the swivel wheel function but it is still very hard to steer.

Hi,

The best thing to do is to remove the front wheel (depress the black buttons either side of the front axle and pull!) then completely clean the wheel assembly in warm water and a SMALL amount of gentle detergent, then dry completely, apply a small amount of vaseline or similar, then replace. This should help.

    Helps enormously if you separate the wheel assembly swivel shaft from the bent tube that holds it on to the buggy (released from the buggy by pressing the two balck buttons). If you look in the side of the bent tube there is hole. If you rotate the wheel swivel shaft inside the tube whilst looking through this hole a button will appear. Press the button with a small screwdriver and the swivel shaft with wheels attached will fall out. It will probably be coated with old grease + dirt making a sort of sticky glue. The inside of the bent tube will probably be even worse. Clean this all off with kitchen roll soaked in white spirit or WD40. Then grease the inside of the tube and the outside of the swivel shaft with vaseline or, better, wheel bearing grease. Make sure the button moves freely and pokes through the hole in the shaft correctly and reinsert the swivel shaft in the tube. Fit back onto the buggy. It should now work like new!

Unable to fold and front wheel keeps sticking


Hi Kelly,
Over the years we have seen customers having trouble folding the Buzz. Mostly it's a combination of factors that make a Buzz a bit stiff.
Most important is that the main silver central tube must be clean and preferrably lightly lubricated. (Put some WD40 on with a rag.)
The second point of attention is the grey release knobs: Remove (blow out) any sand or debris and spray in some WD40. Especially the knob on the left that is slide-push needs this attention. (Left-right viewed in the driving direction.)

These grey knobs have to be pushed firmly to properly fold the chassis. (The left one is first-slide-then-push.) When it folds and gives a loud 'clack' you didn't push them in far enough. We know from experience that this sometimes remains difficult for some customers.
Later revisions of the Buzz have slightly larger buttons that are somewhat easier to operate.

Your front wheel probably needs some care. At the side of the black plastic front 'fork' that holds the wheel you will find a small hole. Rotate the front wheel until you see a small button come by. Push it with a pointed object. (A small screwdriver will do)
You can now remove the front wheel from the black front fork. Clean the internals and lubricate, preferrably with a teflon loaded grease or teflon spray. (Spray is less durable than grease)
This will take care of your steering problems.

Alternatively you can have a look at the Quinny Buzz All Terrain wheels. It's a sturdy drop-in replacement for the original wheel:

Front wheel wont roll on smooth floor !!


Hi

I have had this problem as well but what you need to do is take the front wheel off by pushing in the 2 black buttons. Then when you do this there is a hole near the bottom, what you need to do is turn the wheel until you can see the pin inside then use something thin to puch it in this will release the wheel. You need to clean the inside of this and then spray with silicon spray NOT WD40 as that will make it worse.
In the instructions it does tell you to make sure you keep them oiled but it does not tell you how to do it.
Once you have done this it will work like new again. I took mine on the beach and had to clean the sand out and i also think that from where we have had all this snow the grit has not helped either.
I hope this works for you as it has for me, i love my Quinny and would not change it for the world but i was starting to hate it before i done this
