Good Evening

It sounds as though you're not quite depressing the fold buttons fully when trying to collapse it, so you're pushing against the natural spring of the chassis which is making it difficult.

The Buzz is easiest to fold when you're standing in front of it. Either remove the seat unit, or make sure it is forward facing and in the upright position before you start. Swivel the front wheel straight and lock it into position. Standing in front of the Buzz, push the left side button in until you can't make it go any further, then roll the right button toward you as far as possible. It should only require a small amount of pressure to fold the unit, but remember, due to the style of the automatic unfold you are working against it to fold it up. If you hear any clicks, pops or creaks, don't force it as you'll break the fold knuckles.

If this still doesn't work, give the chassis a good, thorough clean to make sure no dirt or debris is causing the problem. Use a dry Teflon spray (found in the laundry aisle of most supermarkets) or normal furnature polish with a soft dry cloth and give the whole chassis a thorough cleaning. Then as you're folding it down, follow the black plastic down the central tube as it goes toward the front wheel unit to make sure its totally clean. This should make it smoother to fold.

Failing that, the product will need to be returned to the engineers for inspection - which country are you in?

Quinny buz won't collapse


Hi

We wouldn't advise anything apart from cleaning the chassis, as a build up of dirt and debris on the chassis would cause friction and make it difficult when trying to fold. Clean with furniture polish or dry Teflon spray and a soft cloth - don't use an oil based lubricant.

Other than that we'd recommend you contact the customer care team at crelations@djgusa.com for assistance.

Bought quinny buzz 3 second hand, the frame has dropped on one side, how do i fix it?


Good Evening

Unfortunately there is no quick fix for this; It sounds as though one of the knuckles has broken, causing a one sided chassis collapse.

Quinny buzz stroller keeps collapsing when in use


Hi if you bought it within 60 days you can open up a claim on ebay & get a full refund. i sell them in perfect condition & would never sell 1 that is faulty. The only other option is if you are putting bags on the handle this will make if fold up on itself. contact me @ marie-lowe@hotmail.co.uk

Main frame and worn wheels of the quinny buzz


This happened to my wife the other day, I found that the main pivot bolt had pulled through the plastic pivot/collapse assembly. This part is rivoted to the frame so without drilling it out and replacing with an ugly nut and bolt you will have to source a new frame. I got mine from Ebay, I found someone selling lots of quinny buzz bits and asked if he still has the frame he said yes but the handle bar no longer extends (Hence im on here looking how to swap the two), Problem solved!

I also found out from Quinny that the Buzz has a 2 year manufacturers warranty, where Motercare insisted it was 1 year, so dont let them fob you off.
Hope this helps
Chris.

Does the quinny buzz seat 2006 and carrycot fit the 2008/9 frame


Hi new frame should be ok, the only frame that is different is the older 2005 frame, if you remove your seat unit and check the posts on your seat unit (the bits that slot onto the buzz chassis) if they are both the same and have rounded ends then this is the older model and wont fit the newer frames, but if one of the posts is rounded and the other is shaped like a turret then all the frames 2006 onwards will be ok. :)
