Default Mouse wheel issue

My fox might have damaged it while stepping on it but I'm hoping its something fixable.

When I scroll down it sometimes randomly scrolls up. This only happens when scrolling down, if I scroll up it works just fine with no issues

If you open a wheel-mouse and look at how the scroll-wheel mechanism works, you’ll see that it has a series of bumps inside the wheel and a spring that presses against the bumps to cause the click-y feeling. Moreover, you’ll notice a series of thin slits on the face of the wheel through which a small beam of infrared light passes, and the mouse detects the interruptions as the wheel rotating.

The problem is that the bumps inside the wheel (“resting positions”) are not always perfectly aligned with the slits. This can be exacerbated with age due to wear. As such, when the wheel is rotated, the mouse things it has stopped scrolling, but when you release the wheel, it settles in the bump, causing a slight rotation forward or backward.

There’s not a whole lot that can be done about it, but one option is to open the mouse and remove the spring altogether (the one with an end inside the wheel, not the one holding the wheel up). Personally, I find it better because then the mouse has no clicking at all and feels smoother. In fact, it is quite desirable because excessive clicking with some mice can create a big headache due to all the vibrations. The problem of course is that if the wheel is too loose, then it may spin too freely and cause its own erratic scrolling issue.

So, yeah, it might be the fox putting the last straw on the mouse's back as if it were a camel under heavy straw load. Other answers include new batteries if it's a wireless mouse (you didn't specify) or just buy a new mouse. In any case, it's not worth docking the fox's allowance; fox has it hard enough as-is.

I'd like to avoid buying a new mouse, this is a 60 dollar gaming mouse (got it on clearance for 15 bucks) and I dont really have the cash to get another one of this quality
