Problem with bearing please help!


#1

Ok so i got a Shinwoo Zen 4 last week and i played it for a couple hours and then the bearing just wouldnt spin anymore so I replaced the bearing and it i the same exact thing any ideas on what this is?


#2

Clean the bearing seat.


#3

No I mean the bearings won’t spin AT ALL even in another yoyo


#4

did you lube it? That slows bearings down a lot. You also might want to clean the bearing. Something might have gotten in it, or a buildup of grime might slow it down enough.


#5

Have you cleaned it? If the bearing seat was dirty it can sometimes gum up the bearing.


#6

I guess I’ll ask obvious…

Are you sure you have it seated properly in the bearing seat?
Is the string jammed in there?

It’s just very odd that 2 bearings quit in the same yoyo.


#7

Could it be do to over tightening?


#8

Possibly, but normally over tightening would strip the threads before that happens. If you put the bearing on the tip of a pencil, does it spin freely?


#9

No it won’t spin at all


#10

Clean the bearing seat and the bearings.
