Wind bugger problem

My wind bugger progressively started to make a squeaky sound and has now stopped rotating unless the wind is blowing around 15 to 20kts. Anyone have any experience with this problem? Thanks, P. Russell

Sounds like the bearings (front & rear @ about $25/each).
Try contacting: www.windbugger.com/

Happened to me. Could be the bearings. On mine, the magnets fell off. They are only glued on, and have a tendency to fall off. If not the bearings, then look to them.
