Default M11 Wheel Sticking

I've got a problem with my M11. The wheel is sticking and doesn't return to center. It's becoming a REAL problem.

Anyone else have this problem? Anyone know what I can do to fix it? Suggestions?

Your tension spring could be too loose or the wheel itself could be cracked where it screws on the square post thingy.

It could also be the foam pushed up against the case...Had this happen to me with my Helios and my M8. I would also check the wheel, if you broke off a little piece of plastic it can mess stuff up...
They make an aluminum wheel for the M11 now, if it is the plastic that broke.

Ok...I just tore the WHOLE thing apart. I think I've found what it was. The 3 screws behind the wheel were torqued down pretty tight...loosening each of those 1/4 turn seems to have freed everything up. The innards were clean and well lubed. Nothing broken, cracked or out of the ordinary.

Anyone else have this happen?

i'd try this first, if something pushes down on the wheel it kinda pushes in for some reason, a slight pull and it pops out as mentioned...

The m8 has a big bearing that the wheel axle goes through, I had a dirty bearing in one. Blasted out the bearing and it worked fine, then I got a KO...
