Since I have the same problem with my three years old Kettler Golf Pro bike as described by steve949, then I would like to get some help. I did put apart my bike, and tried to adjust the screw which stretch the drive belt. But it didn't help. In my opinion the this rubber belt seems to be exchanged into the new one, next I intend to order such.Or, am I wrong?

How do i lubicant my reebok b5.8e bike


Well I'm not familiar with Reebok exercise bikes specifically, but I am familiar with bike pedals in general. It looks like these are rather cheap plastic pedals that are sealed (no real way to take them apart and lubricate them). I suggest you try using some kind of household oil, 3 in1 etc. or maybe WD-40.and spray on the inside side of the pedal. If you take them off the machine, it might be easier to see where to spray or drop oil in the best area. If you do decide to take them off, the left hand pedal is reverse threaded (to unscrew the left pedal you must turn the axle of the pedal that unscrews clockwise to remove). The right pedal is regular thread (counter clockwise to remove). Depending on how much space is between the crank and the pedal body, you might have to get a special bicycle pedal wrench available from a good bicycle shop (Park tools are the best). The special wrench is very thin to be able to get between the crank and the pedal body which is usually very narrow between the pedal and the crank. If this doesn't work, I'm afraid you probably going to have to buy new ones in order to get rid of the squeak. If you don't mind doing away with the pedal straps, you could get cheap pedals at a bicycle shop. If you do choose to go this route take the pedal with you. There are two different pedal axle diameters: 1/2" and 9/16". The 1/2" isn't very common anymore, so it will probably be 9/16". The pedals usually marked L and R on the ends of the axel. If French it's D for right and G for left. If not, you will just have to try them to see which pedal is left and right by trying each one (remember preceding instructions). Good luck!

Reebok RL 1500 elliptical lost all resistance


I had the same exact problem, and I mean the EXACT same problem. I also changed out the battery with no change. I contacted the generator company thinking it might be that, but they told me it could be the control board. I ordered a control board, changed it out, and now it works like new.

To sum up: Get a new control board.

The reverse pedal on my F525 John Deere lawn mower is not working. It is impossible for me to back up. The pedal goes down but does not activate the mower to go back.


Hi there,

We are having the same problem, I followed the cable to the back part of the lawn mower by the battery. There is a small ram that the cable pushes in and back out when you release the peddle. I found that the top part of the ram was broken and there was no pressure to push the cable back in when the peddle is released. I have not found out how much the part is yet, looks to be an easy fix though. I hope this help..

How do you remove the pedals


You usually need a pedal wrench. They are thin and easily slid on the pedal nut. 17mm or 19mm typically, depending on bike/pedal size.

Ez-go golf cart press accelerator pedal and nothing happens


The first thing I would do is lift the seat and check the battery connections. Those batteries are notorious for corrosion at the terminals. Make sure every connection is clean and solid, as in no loose, corroded or frayed battery cables. Next, if the batteries check out, toggle the run/tow switch, also under the seat to make sure it is fully engaged into the run position, and finally check the forward/reverse lever to make sure the connections are clean and tight.

Healthstream genesis exercise bike


This depends on the model you have. There are lots of genesis bikes have manual resistance knobs on the main post, right in front of the seat. If it doesn't have a knob here, then it might be electronically operated in which case there might be a problem if it isn't adjusting with the program.
