Why did my roller luggage's wheels stop turning smoothly?
  • Two weeks ago, my carry on worked perfectly. But last week the detachable wheels stopped rotating smoothly, when I tried to glide my carry on. The wheels budge *JUST A TAD* ***when you push them hard***, but **it should be EFFORT LESS**! Here are two pictures.
  • I see nothing jammed in the wheels. I ventilated wheels with my hairdryer. I hosed water into wheels. But nothing fell out. Wheels are still stiff! Why?
  • I bought this carry on for $350 USD. It is out of warranty. I can't afford buy new one.
