Depending on where you are located (US) change out the plastic with brass inserts from the hardware section at lowes. I had the same problem and the one from lowes fit snug and have not failed in years.

0.875" ID x 1.625" OD bronze hollowbar bearing material is a perfect fit in to the hub and shaft on the Zodiac "comfort wheels".
