Stair Stepper lost tension (effort)

We have a RoadMaster Stepper that was making some squeaking noises. I removed the side covers and sprayed the joint areas with a dry-lube lithium. Squeak went away but I don't have any tension in the steps. I can changed the setting with no change in the effort. Any ideas?

The tension knob should have a plus and a minus on it if you turn it towards plus it should make the stepping harder and obviously the minus makes it easier

How do I fix a squeaky wooden stair step I recently installed.

Should never use construction adhesive on stairs as too dangerous. Proper way is to use wedges to remove squeaks. You could try a silicone spray like Jigaloo, or remove that step for a new one with a strip of rubber under it.

Don't you find the stairs incredibly noisy!

The best way to identify exactly which accessory or component is making noise is to use a mechanics stethescope with a pointed tip on it. If you do not have access to one, the next best thing is to remove the serpentine belt and feel each individual pulley for binding or play. Also try to spin each pulley fast enough to create the noise.

This video covers the installation and adjustment of the Eccentric Hub Assembly for the Stairmaster 4400PT/CL and 4600PT/CL Steppers.
The video begins with the Eccentric Hub Assembly removed from the unit. If you need help removing the Eccentric Hub Assembly from your stepper, please see our video about the Eccentric Hub Assembly Removal.
Tools Needed: Socket Wrench, 7/16" Socket, Adjustable Wrench or 7/16" Wrench
  • Begin by placing your HTD toothed belt around its pulleys. This allows you to set the proper belt tension before mounting the Eccentric Hub Assembly to the frame. The "egg" shape of the Eccentric Hub allows for adjustment of the belt tension. Rotate the hub counter clockwise to tension the belt. Proper belt tension allows about ΒΌ" of play.
  • Line up the 4 bolts through the Eccentric Hub Assembly and the frame. Be sure to place the bolts facing the same direction as noted from removal of the old Eccentric Hub Assembly.
  • Once all the bolts are aligned, retighten them to the frame using the socket wrench with socket on one side and the other wrench on the opposite side.
  • Reinstall the poly-v alternator belt.
  • The Eccentric Hub Assembly installation and adjustment is now complete.

I replaced the altenator and the serpentine belt two weeks ago. Now i hear a squeaking noise. I tried a spray for the belt but the noise is still there.

Check your tensioner pulley -- if you do not have enough tension on the serpentine belt, it will slip on the pulleys and cause a squeaking noise (very loud and high pitched). if you push on the serpentine belt with your hand, it should not more more than about an inch -- if it does, you are low on tension. If it does not have any give at all, then you have too much tension, and one of your pulleys might not be turning properly, causing that same noise. If your tension is right, and your car is still making that noise ... and belt dressings (the spray you probably used) are not working to stop it, then it might be a piece of rubber stuck on one of the pulleys, but this usually will not make that sound ... just smoke and a burned rubber smell.

My Stair Climber 4400cl is making a clunking sound on both steps. After removing the covers I found the sound coming from the drive belt with teeth. Should I replace the gears as well as the belt?

I would inspect and change anything that is worn call Nation Gym parts @ 1-800-496-7278 or go to,then go to Parts click on to Stairmaster you will find kits to replace all movable parts for your unit.
