Open Question

Loose crank on Fitness Quest's Eclipse 1100 HR

One of the cranks that is attached to the flywheel has become a little bit loose. The crank has a teflon guide attatched to the end of it in which the bar on the bottom of the foot rest rides. The loose crank causes the bar to come partially out of the guide at the bottom of each orbit. The bar snaps back into position as it approaches the top of the orbit. It is very annoying.

Can you provide me the instruction on how to tighten the crank?

There will be a nut on the opposite side to the hex nut, which needs help in place by a spanner when you tighten it up.

The resistance on my Eclipse 1100 HR/A machine is not working at all. What could be the problem?

Note Ronnie's solution above to clean the sensors (that's somewhat hidden by promotions here).

Fitness Quest failed: Thus company support and parts prove virtually non-existent. The company performed a huge recall: Fitness Quest sent the 1100 HR/A as the replacement machine to satisfy the recall--the overall expense likely proved too much for the company to bear. (The recalled machine had weak crank arms.) Fitness quest told me to send in the right foot platform to prove ownership and to trash the recalled machine.

You might carefully try to clean the circuit board and LCD in the console. I've described this in detail. (Sorry about the grammatical errors in that--it was late.) Note also my recommendations for obtaining a similar machine as a replacement. You may obtain a similar-level used machine (or, alternate gear and other fitness-related products) relatively cheaply.

When I program my Eclipse 1100 hr/a for any amount of time, it shuts off after 5 minutes.

The timing circuit has become unstable and the circuit board may be defective. Selection rates cannot be set and thus only a replacement controller will fix the situation.

Monitor diplays E1 and won't stop beeping

Fitness Quest Eclipse 1175e Elliptical Trainers were recalled on December 11, 2007 for a fall hazard. During exercise, the foot pedal crank can break. After receiving 190 reports of the crank breaking, the company is offering a replacement product or credit toward other Fitness Quest products. If the pedal falls off, be sure to save it; you will need the right foot platform to claim the replacement or credit.
Owners should stop using the elliptical trainer immediately. Owners can receive a replacement with another Fitness Quest product or credit.

The Fitness Quest Eclipse 1175e Elliptical Trainer was sold at major sporting goods chains, such as Sports Authority, Modell's, Dunhams, and JC Penney stores in the United States from September 2006 to October 2007. Sale prices were $290 and $450.

E1 errors are usually lubrication/resistance issues. Has the unit been oiled/greased recently?
