You didn't say what model you have, but I believe they are all functionally similar to my Model B rower. There is a "skewer" assembly inside the seat rail with a shock cord and pulley's that keeps tension in the chain throughout its range of travel. To some extent it is adjustable by taking slack out of the shock cord. On mine, this can be done by grabbing the shock cord adjustment mechanism ("SCAM") with pliers and pulling it out of the rear of the machine and adjusting the slack. If it is very loose or you just want to be sure of what is going on, the entire skewer assembly pulls out from the front (flywheel side) of the seat rail after removing four screws that hold it in place. Go to the concept2 website for diagrams, instructions, and parts lists for your model.

SamInRaleigh has it right. I was able to eliminate the slack in my chain by pulling the mechanism out the rear side (seat rail side), and adjusting the bungee cord. Not sure if it works for other models but it sure worked on mine.

Concept 2 rower screen says batteries are low even after I install new batteries.


Have you checked to make sure there is no corrosion or dirt on the battery terminals/contacts resulting in reduced voltage flow? If dirty try using a dollar bill(the fibrous paper used to make money is slightly course) to clean them as even a fine grit sand paper is too course for these contact points( you just want clean them, not scratch the finish off)

Computer replaced batteries - screen lights up but does not function when rowing - not registering meters


Check the mtion sensing magnetic switch thats under the seat rail. It determines if you are rowing and sends a signal to the computer. Make sure all connections are fully seated. You may have loosened a wire when you swapped the batteries.

The monitor isn`t working it has the letters E O 11 in top left corner


Hold down the 4 bottom buttons(recall,2 set digits,ready).While holding them down,press and release the ON/OFF button. Now release the other 4 buttons....the monitor should do some fast counting for 15 seconds and then display a 5 in the center area.Now press and release the ON/OFF button again and your screen should work!

The chain does not return smoothly. The chain does not retract. I don't have a manual to see if the machine is set up correctly.


A return spring or cord is not functioning or broken and the chain sprocket assembly bearing may have become defective or more likely needs lubrication. I would try contacting this company since they sold the product.Fitness Quest Corporate Headquarters
