Question about Valco Twin Runabout ATS Jogger

Front wheels swivel and get stuck on each other

Unless I have the front wheels locked, they end up swiveling all around and getting caught sideways facing each other. I don't really like to lock the wheels b/c then I have to tilt/lift the front of the stroller to turn. I tried locking just one wheel, but then there's a lot of friction with turns. In the reviews people go on about how easy this stroller is to steer. what am I missing?

    One of the front wheels of my twin runabout is much stiffer than the other and doesn't rotate as well which makes the stroller pull often to one side. Help!!

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.

Is it possible to buy or adapt the rough terrain wheel for the bugaboo cameleon to swivel?

all bugaboo strollers came with swivel front wheels . There is a white sliding button on the front of the swivel assembly that locks the swivel action. The swivel castors are only on the front but can be assembled incorrectly on the rear of the stroller
go to google and type in base.bugaboo.com and there is a pdf manual for the strollers.including how to assemble and the wheels and castors.

Irobot roomba won't work

This message sometimes happens when it\'s jammed or caught. I would open it up and really clean everything out to make sure the brushes are not jammed. Also pop out the ball white/black wheel at the front and remove all the hair around the axle for this.



This almost sounds like something caught in the wheels and gears. String and the like can get caught in there. The easiest thing is to find the end of the string and try to unwind it in the direction reverse to what it caught in. I tried taking the whole Roomba apart one time, it was tough, so I don\'t recommend it unless you are very mechanically minded. FYI to everyone with a Roomba, I knew someone who expected theirs to pick up random dry cat and dog poop around the house. No vacuum can do this.

Front wheels not turning in 4wheel drive 1996 dodge dakota

Check and make sure the transfer case is adjusted right If the front end was broke you would know it. Jack up one front wheel and put it in 4wheel drive but not lock and see if the front drive shaft turns if it doesn't you need to adjust linkage or if it's electric make sure the signal is getting to the transfer case. If it only locks front and rear jack up one rear wheel also and do the check. Most people with 4 wheel drive don't know they have two wheel drive One in the rear and one in the front unless you ordered a locking dif from the factory they don't come this way. Then you would have 3 wheel drive

Hello, with all 4 wheels off the ground,engine running and in gear only 3 wheels are turning. The right front does not. is this normal?

Unless you have a positraction rear differential, I'm surprised that even three are turning! Four wheel drive is really two wheel drive because both differentials are "open" type. In an open diff, only one wheel has power at any given time. With a positraction, or "limited slip" rear diff, both rear wheels push with fairly even force but the outer wheel is allowed to slip when going around turns. Only true four wheelers have either a limited slip on both ends or "locked" units but it is impossible or really difficult to drive anything like that on the street. If you hold the left front wheel from turning unless the locking unit is broken, the right front should turn.

The front wheels on my Maclaren XLR keep locking up

Hi,

When you click the wheel release (to make them go onto swivel mode) press a little harder as it sounds like you haven't fully engaged the release mechanism.

I hope this helps.

Problems with releasing front wheel lock

I have just fixed my stroller which had a similar problem. The wheel was still swivelling but it was sticking slightly. I noticed that the pin that locks the wheel in place was half out and therefore the wheel was getting caught on it. I undid the nut that holds the end of the wheel lock cable in place and tightened this as tight as I could which pulls the pin back into place (making sure that the switch is in swivel position). I then put the washer and nut back on (making sure cable was as tight as possible).
