If you are experiencing issues with your graco swing, be sure to check that there really is an issue with the batteries. To do this, all you have to do is push the “speed up” button and see if it speeds up your swing or not. If it doesn’t, then there may be something wrong with your motor and you should take your swing into a service center and get them to look at it for you!
If everything’s okay with your batteries, try adjusting the power level. Take it from a low power level and gradually turn it up until you find a setting that works for your baby. This will provide a better idea of whether or not you need to change your batteries at all!
