Default Unsticking a corner carousel

With luck, I'll be moving in a few weeks. The new house passed the
structural inspection with only minor issues noted but one thing I'm
sure is going to make me crazy is that the kitchen cabinets include a
corner carousel which turns with difficulty. I've never had one of
these in my house and I'm not sure how to fix it. I've Googled
newsgroups and the web in general and not found even an exploded view
of how they usually go together. What can I clean and/or lubricate to
make it work better?

Depends on what the problem is -- if the shelves are rubbing on the
outer edge or somesuch, would take fixing that. If the bearings are bad
or dry, lubricating them would probably help. Some of the units I've
seen, however, are so cheaply made the real solution may be to simply
trash it and replace it with a better unit.
