Try putting a few pieces of her kibble or a treat on the wheel before bed to encourage her to step on it. Try setting her on it gently, use your hand or other object to block her momentarily just to see if she will take a few steps. (a tip used by others on this site, not my own)

Ensure its not too high off the ground for her to climb onto easily, and if it is see if you can put a little step in front of it for her. (perhaps a hardback book with fleece wrapped around it so she doesn't try to play with it)

If you stay up at night you may be able to see what's turning her off from it.
Riley loved me. Much likes me. Whyte Darkness is a large, huffing, popping ball of albino white spines, but I love him anyway.
