    Default Polaris 380 wheels getting stuck

    The wheels on my Polaris 380 stop rotating. I pull it out, and turn the wheels by hand and then they start turning again. This happened a couple of times.

    Something keeps jamming, can anyone help?

    Thanks A lot!

    Take the cover off and look a the condition of the belts inside. I complained all last summer about how slow and sluggish my 380 was. Pulled the cover off the other day and found no belts at all! I know they were replaced about 4 years ago. All I found inside was some of the belt fibers wrapped around the drive axle. Guess nothing lasts forever!

    Drive belt is loose, or possibly off. It's fairly easy to replace--there are three belts, and you can get them all in one package. I think mine came from Leslie's for around $20 when I had the same problem a couple of years ago.
