Squeak in concept 2 rowing machine bearing/fan

I get a squeak in what appears to come from the bearing when I pull on the rowing machine handle. There is no squeak while the chain is retracting. How do I get into the bearing shaft to oil/grease the bearing?

Try using some bicycle chain lube or WD40.

Is it normal to hear a squeak from the number 4 cylinder rod bearing as I manually rotate engine crank? I have the front end and oil pan off.


make sure that the squeak is not from dry rings in the bore
put oil down the cylinder and rotate the crank
if it goes it could be just dry and need no further checks but if it is in a bearing then it is serious and needs replacing
turning a crank should produce a dry scraping noise as the pistons move up and down the bores but certainly not other noise

Lights' Pull Chain Won't Retract; What do I do?


you should take it down and throw it out,it will take less time and money to buy a new one that is remote control,they work better and no chains to get hung up on,,you could also buy a switch,spend time figuring out which wires to unsolder and resolder,and put back together and hope you didnt wire it wrong and burn down your house.

Squeaky glide board


Yes indeed.
I have an XLS and it started squeaking, but the glide board is not the source of the squeak on my total gym, to check this try the following, put board to its highest setting then sit on the top of the board facing the machine with your legs over the end. Sit upright so you can see the columb as you pull on the handles.

On my machine as the handles are pulled it causes the chrome arms that that the pulleys are attached to, to flex slightly towards you. This part is lined with a plastic inner piece that
squeaks as the outer flexes.
Its a minor design problem, to fix this you need to stop the flexing. This can be achieved cheaply by a carefully cut piece of wood, functional but doesn't look too flash, or a nicely shaped metal plate painted black or chromed (your choice) drilled onto the face of the chromed slider will do the job, do not do this yourself unless you have some engineering or metalworking skills. Try a block of wood first to verify if that is the problem with your machine.
Keep the tracks clean, a light coat of silicon spray on them and the wheels and bearings also worth trying. If the squeak is from the actual bearings replace with new ones from Hucks.
Good Luck

The throttle trigger will not work on my 235e husqvarna


I'm guessing from the statement that it "will not work to increase speed" that you have been able to successfully start the chainsaw.
I have to look at this with the assumption that you haven't run a chain saw before, so bear with me if some of this is excessively simple.
If the throttle trigger does not move, something is jammed. The handle for the choke should automatically move to the retracted position when you pull on the throttle. If it doesn't, see if the trigger will move after you push the choke handle back in.
If the trigger moves in when you squeeze it but you don't hear any change in the engine sound then it's probable that the throttle wire has disconnected at the carburetor or at the handle.
Is the chain brake off? You need to pull it firmly back toward the upper handle for it to be disengaged. If the handle is forward it will lock the outer portion of the clutch. If you try to accelerate with it locked the engine will bog and not allow the chain to move.
Any of these conditions other than the chain brake will probably require some disassembly. Make sure you're confident that you've correctly reassembled everything if you're going to do it yourself.

After approx a minute a regular squeak begins, occasionally missing a beat.Heating is fine.


If the "frequency" of the squeaking is a low frequency, the I would suspect the turntable motor or stirrer motor (if so equipped).

If it is a higher frequency, I would suspect the cooling fan or hood fan motor.

I am not getting any resistance from my Integrity 3000 rower. The fan does not make a noise when I pull.


Your chain is stuck on the bearing and not on the gear. Its stuck on the rod holding the gear. See the thing that looks like a bicycle chain that leleads from the pull handle to the black cover next to the fan? Well under that black cover is a gear that holds the bicycle chain. To get to it, you need a screwdriver. Take off the cover and you need to pull the bar vertical to the air and you need to realign the chain. Your welcome! Source: same problem
