Hey, Alan. I believe you can replace the wheels, though I'm not sure what to recommend. It would depend on your size. I've made a list of replacement wheels you could consider. I know many are shower door wheels, but believe it or not these tend to work really well for replacement drawer tracks. See what you think.

Thanks Tom

The diameter of the wheel is 1 3/16. So, do you have anything that size and information on how to get the old one off to screw the new one in? The gizmo appears to be riveted to the cabinet.

Oh, I see. Hm... that's kind of a big drawer roller. I'm afraid I haven't been able to find anything in that size. The largest we have is our 32-096 at 1-1/8". Do you think you could use that?

As for removing the old one, I believe you have to drill these off since they're riveted in at the factory. It's not elegant but I don't think you have any other option. The 32-096, fortunately, can screw on. It has a 1/4-20 thread.
