Stiff wheels

Recommended Posts

The wheels of my Leap Frog are getting rather stiff lately. Apart from that, they work fine.

 

Is there anything I can do to make them run as smooth again as they used to?

 

Maybe add a little oil somewhere?

Don't oil them - just check that they're running 'true' in relation to the sensor PCB attached to the side of them...

 

I've had it in the past where stiff wheels was caused by the PCB rubbing the wheel. You might also find that the wheel is rubbing against the bezel for the wheel and will need gently prying away from it.

 

The wheel mechanism is simple - an acrylic hub on a stainless steel shaft so there's no bearing as such to fail - if anything with a lot of time it should wear and get more slack.
