The might need to be serviced. You can gently take them apart and lightly oil them. If you’re not sure how to do it check with the local hobby shop or model railroad club. You can take two wires from the transformer and touch them to the opposite side wheels and see if they will run with that option. Some times it takes a direct jolt to get the motor turning again.The wheels could be dirty lightly scuff them with an emery board and clean off the oxidization making a better connection to the tracks.
