What Is Causing Brakes to Lock up?

Answer

Locked brakes are usually caused by contaminated linings. This contamination results from grease or oil which causes swellings on the drum brake systems. These swollen spots normally touch the drum too quickly causing the brakes to lock. Generally, any slight increase in friction in the braking system will lead to locked brakes.
