Stuck Silent Spinner (What do I do???)

Okay so my Silent Spinner wheel for my mice ladies is stuck. I have two of these and I've never had one stick before. I don't know what to do. It spins but I really have to twist it to get it to spin. It's an effort for ME to do it, no less one of my three fuzzies.

Anyone else have this problem? I keep it clean, and it was spinning fine yesterday so I'm not sure what the problem could be.

I've been having a hard enough time getting them to exercise lately with how hot it's been, a busted wheel isn't going to help the situation Hope someone knows what to do.

Well I would take it out (If possible) and examine it very closely. I have never had this problem before. But if you dont find anything then I would buy a new wheel. I know thats an inconvenience for you but it might help your little moisies get some exercise! Good luck!

What is a "silent spinner" wheel? I just use the regular old metal ones and when they squeek, I oil them with vegetable oil. Is there anything that needs to be lubricated?

Unscrew the yellow cap in the center and take off the wheel part. They may have gotten something stuck, maybe a seed or bit of shavings that needs to come out.
