    The front wheel locks up and grabs making the pram impossible to steer. Lubing has not assisted. It is now dangerous to use as I can't trust the pram to steer where I want to go. I suspect the bearings are buggered.

    yes, I have the same problem. It was fine for my first child but now when trying to use it with the bassinet the front wheel in the unlocked position locks up and you have to really wrestle with it turn in the right direction. I have also trying specific aluminium lubricant with no success. i am going to try our local bike repair shop as I am not technical.

I have just removed the front wheel and liberally greased the inside top to bottom with specific aluminium lubricant (which the bike shop told me was good for bearings) and immediate improvement. fingers crossed that it lasts. looking at other posts, make sure that you put the front wheel back on securely.

Replacement parts.


Many Valco Baby models are equipped with 12 inch tires. Just like a car or bike, punctures can occur. A 12 inch inner tube or bicycle tire repair kit would be all you need to seal the puncture. If need be, tubes can be purchased from your local retailer or contact them at (USA) 800 610 7850 or email info@valcobaby.com Tubes are not covered under warranty.

Valco pram repair


Hi there.

If it is a plastic moulding that has stuck, use a silicone spray (mr sheen will do) to release it.

If this will not help at all, try your nearest Halfords bike department or bicycle repair shop. I doubt they will charge you anything.

If it is a broken part, find the manufacturer for ordering a replacement.

Hope this helps,

Front wheels swivel and get stuck on each other


This is happening to my stroller and it turns out that the frame is bent. I have been unable to find a certified technician who is willing to fix it. I guess I can offer it for parts to someone.

Need to get a new wheel


Get onto the Valco website and email their technical help. They are very good and get back to you quite quickly. I am pretty sure that you can order new parts through there. The instruction manual that comes with the pram tells you how to replace the wheel. If you don't have it they will email you a copy.
