    caster barely swiveling

    I've been taking my powerchair out a lot on dirt roads, grass, train tracks [scary, only go over those if you have someone with you just incase!]...lol. Since a few days ago one of my casters is getting stuck mid-swivel so it's basically being dragged in the horizontal position.

    What would cause this? My manual has never done this so I'm lost.

    Sounds like you need to have one or more caster bearings replaced.

      Ok, I was hoping I could just spray some liquid graphite on it and my problems would be solved!

        definitely sounds like bad caster fork bearings
