Wheel trouble

Recommended Posts

Not sure if I am in the right troubleshoolting forum but, I have a used 2010 milly.  I have to come to the conclusion that I have the older type wheels and that may be why when I move the machine from left to right or vise versa it feel like I am on a bumpy highway.  Has anyone ever had this problem and is it a big job to switch to the MnM wheels.  Any help would be appreciated.

What color are your wheels?  Are they smooth black?  A 2010 Millie may already have them installed, and you may just need them adjusted or you may have one with a bad bearing.  There were some that had problems with the bearings (they had the yellow center) and APQS replaced them.  It isn't a hard job at all to switch to the M&M wheels,if you indeed don't have them on, and there are clear instructions to do it. Let us know how it goes.

I have cleaned and cleaned black residue still coming off.  They don't have the yellow centers, I check that out.  The ones on the front of the machine I swear are black and I thought they were hard plastic.  The ones on the back (panto side) seem to have brown flex in them and the husband said they were like a flake board he could see the fibers.  Didn't know they had bearings.  I am very new at this machine.  The APQS rep told me this morning that if the wheel is approx. 3/4" wide they are the MnM, if they are approx. 1/2" wide they would be the older ones.  When I measured tonight they were more the 1/2" size.  Called Amy at APQS tonight but haven't heard back I will give a try again tomorrow.  Thanks so much for responding back you guys are the best.

try leveling your table front to back and side to side, also, check to make certain that your table is the same width all along the length of the table. any of these things can make the machine ride less desirable.

check the tightness of the wheels also and that they are riding properly on the rails.
