Default Hedgehog's wheel is really stiff

I have a Jellyhogs bucket wheel for my hedgehog. He loves it and goes on it every night. For the last 2 nights there hasn't been a lot of poo on his wheel, and when I was washing the wheel I discovered it was really stiff. I've watched him try to run on it and it's so stiff it won't move.
Does this mean the wheel is broke or is there something I can do to fix this?

You might have gotten water on the ball bearings in the wheel mechanism. I would take it apart and squirt some vaseline in there to see if it will turn again. If you're still having an issue, email jellyhogs and see if they can troubleshoot the problem.
