Steve, the Ex-79 should be very quite. I am surprise to learn yours is making Squeaky Noise. I think there was some problem with your assembly. How long do you have this trainer? does is make sound when you put your weight on a specific footpadel (like left or right)?

My temporary solution would be to lub up your trainer. Please call horizon regarding you issue on 800.244.4192 (or you can email: techsupport@horizonfitness.com).

See the video and lube the rollers bearings, very important.
If the problem persist, after you lube, time to replace the old board deck belt complete.
God bless you

My Schwinn 430 elliptical makes a clunking noise when pedalling backwards but not forward. What is causing this?


I have a iron man cdt elliptical that was clunking . I found a shaft on the end of the crank was slipping in and out, inside the bearings. I shimmed it and retightened the retaining washer which prevented it from slipping . Smooth as silk now. It was very frustrating because all seemed tight at first.

Could be bearings going out, or a squirrel cage rubbing the blower housing, a squirrel cage blade that came loose, or a capacitor.

Sounds like a squirrel inside water heater


Check your thremostat setting if it is set to highest position it may be causing some of the noise over heating the water and making the noise. And you can put an insulated jacket on it to maybe help with sound.

Sounds like a squirrel inside water heater


Hi,
The noise is inherent in electric hot water heaters. It is the noise that the water makes when it is being heated by electric heating elements. Mineral buildup on the elements can make it worse, so changing the elements can help...but will not totally elimenate the noise. When I install a new tank and turn it on all I have to do is listen to it to see if it is working or not...even brand new will make a sound...it is the sound of hot water... :-)
