Lifecycle 95R Inspire Pedals/alternator slipping.

Lifecycle 95R Inspire free wheels intermittently while pedaling. Go's from resistance to no resistance with no warning and console indicates the user is not pedaling and starts shutdown countdown, but typically will regain resistance while user continues to pedal and resumes workout. It is dangerous to the user particularly at high resistance and high RPMs. I have replaced the battery with a brand new fully charged battery at Life Fitness recommendation, with negative results, the problem remains unchanged.

On the bottom the bike frame their should be s# plate. If you need to replace the battery you need to: first remove the foot pedals,then side panels.

SOURCE: pedals/resistance locked

Was this at a retail store you should exchage it.
If not then you will have to take the side off need to inspect all mechanical attached to the rails. It will be apparent to see the flywheel their eddy current transformer on top of unit or the flywheel itself is one package their should be are wire comming out of trace it back to the circuit unplug the connectors the resistance should be gone now test the mechanical function of unit to see if the pedal are free from any binding then reverse connectors and see if you can adjust the resistance if not the board is defective.

Slipping pedals on stairmaster 4400 freeclimber


Start by checking the alternator brushes. Worn brushes are the leading cause of no resistance issues in these machines.

How do I remove the pedals on a 8500 life fitness recumbent bike


Replacement Parts for Fitness Exercise Equipment at SPORTSMITH

Using a wrench, you remove the left pedal as you would loosen a normal, left hand threaded bolt. The right side is a reverse thread and would need to be loosened in the opposite direction.

Golds gym 380 elliptical is not increasing resistance


follow this steps, God bless you
    • Be aware that the resistance is often the part that requires repair. Resistance is managed magnetically, so often if the machine is working, but the resistance isn't setting correctly or at all, check the bolts that secure the magnets. If they are loose, the resistance will slip. If the bolts are fine, check the magnets themselves by using a refrigerator magnet and see if it is attracted or repelled by the your fridge magnet. If not, the magnets have de-magnetized and need to be replaced.
    • Consider that if the foot pedals are attached with bolts, any slipping can be fixed with a quick use of the wrench. But if the foot pedals are damaged or breaking, order new foot pedals (see Resources below) rather than run the risk of a pedal breaking while you're on the machine.

Both pedals slipping to floor as if no power was getting to it. screen reads stepper when first plugged in


I would start with checking your brushes in your alternator. If they are worn down, they will not make good contact. The resistance in this machine is provided by the alternator.

Both pedals slip?


When both pedals slip at the same time, it is more likely to be the alternator brushes than it is to be the hub assembly. Check this link for a brush replacement video. I am also attaching a troubleshooting video for no resistance on a 4600PT.

How to use the Proform 515S EKG Elliptical?


To mount the elliptical trainer, firmly hold the handlebars or the T-handle and carefully step onto the pedal that is in the lowest position. Next, step onto the other pedal. Push the pedals until they begin to move with a continuous motion. Note: The pedal disks can turn in either direction. It is recommended that you turn the pedal disks in the direction shown below; however, to give variety to your exercise, you may choose to turn the pedal disks in the opposite direction.
To dismount the elliptical trainer, allow the pedals to come to a complete stop. CAUTION: The elliptical trainer does not have a free wheel; the pedals will continue to move until the flywheel stops. When the pedals are stationary, step off the highest pedal first. Then, step off the lowest pedal.
As you exercise, you can adjust the resistance of the pedals with the resistance knob on the console. To increase the resistance, turn the knob clockwise; to decrease the resistance, turn the knob counterclockwise.
