You may also have a puncture.

The tyre and inner tube can be removed in the same way as a standard bicycle tyre, you can google how to remove a tyre to get some more advise.

Once you have removed the inner tube, place it in a bowl of water and try to inflate it with the pump. If you see any bubbles escaping from the tube, you have a puncture and will need to repair, again, additional advise can be found online or talk with your local bike shop for direct advise on how to do this.

If you see no bubbles you need to check that air is not escaping from the pump, if its broken then it will just vent the air as soon as you put it in.

Hope that helps

I suggest a hand tire pump. A tire that operates at such a low pressure needs to be "finessed" Pump them until they are firm and hard to squeeze. That should do the trick! Thanks for using Fixya!

The bugaboo tires may be filled at any gas station with a std tire pump. You must only inflate to 15psi or 1 bar of pressure. This will take about 1 sec at the gas station pump which will do about 100 psi.

You can do it very easy :) I have done it before. BUT YOU MUST BE CAREFUL. As you can overpressurize and pop the tire of the wheel :)

Take it very easy with a very quick taps on the trigger atnd all will be well. It will fill very easily :)

I have an 3260dn laser printer and the "Paper Tray Empty" light is on and will not reset, even when I fill the paper tray

The problem could be caused by the pick up tires on your printer. If it doesn't pick, I suggest you call Lexmark Technical Support.

Placing the drain hose from the lg front load washer it leaks excess water and it spin but do not get the water out of clothes on spin cycle and I notice the drain hose is flat like a tire

Flat like a tire? That is an indication of a vacuum situation.

The first thing I would do is make sure that the pump is getting an activation voltage when the washing machine goes into spin. If it doesn't it is either your controller board or your timer circuit. If you are getting a signal at the pump then you will need to replace the pump.

Since I don't have your model number, I can't look up those parts to give you an idea of what the parts will run.

I have lost the pump for my Bugaboo Frog, both of the tyres are completely flat. Where can I buy a new pump? Thanks, Paul

The Bugaboo pump is a plastic joke and a bad one at that. Most Bugaboo's have the same tyre valve as a car and a car foot pump from your auto shop or department store will be cheaper and faster. If you want a more portable pump check out your local bike shop they have far better ones available. Very old Bugaboos have the smaller bicycle valve the newest Bugaboo's now have foam filled tires.

How do a fix a flat tire on my weedeater riding mower? 13hp 38 series

I suggest a trip to the auto parts store. Buy a tubless tire repair kit. Ask the sales person how to do the job (it is easy). Repair the tire on the rim and try to do it without the bead coming off the rim. Next, take an air pump and pump it up! If the tire has a tube, you must take the tire off the rim and repair the tube...Good luck...Lee

One of my Quinny Buzz Tires are flat. It is

You need to either have a new inner tube put in it or you can try adding a flat repair gel in the tube to fix the leak. You can get what they call "Green Slime" their are other brands also available under different names but this is most common. It can be purchased at Walmart, Home Depot, Ace Hardware and Auto Parts Stores. This is easy to pump into the tube valve stem without removing the tube or wheel and should fix any holes or leaks on it. Then just pump it up and you should be ready to go.

Tire blew on putting a little air in.

if you have run a long way your tyres should have been worn out even if you fill the air within preferred i suggest you to buy new tyres ..but remember everytime you change the tyre be sure the wheels are tightened at preferred torque since uneven torques are also responsible for easy worn outs.

How to repair a flat tire?


to find the hole, try to fill the tire with air, and put it on a shallow water were it's enough for you to see the bumbles that come out from the tire.

to repair a flat tire, take out the interior of tire and if you happen to see the location of the hole try to find an unused rubber and cover the hole with that rubber and glue it with a quick drying glue... (this is a non-professional work)

Mounting Tubeless tire on Rim of riding lawn mower

With the mower jacked up place a belt or rope around the center of the tire all away around and draw it tight. Apply pressure and when the tire starts to fill you can release the belt. Apply pressure until you hear the bead pop, indicating that it has a bead lock to the rim. Let the air out to the right pressure, check all tire pressures and set the deck to level. Go mow your lawn.
