Making very loud whistle noise


Be sure to verify if you are getting the noise while you are physically on the machine or with no one on it
Creaking or squeaking while running on the machine usually indicates an issue in your incline motor, deck frame, springs, and or pivot points

A loud grumbling noise getting louder and louder while elevating speed, usually means you have a bad bearing

Any knocking noise coming from a treadmill indicates bad bearings in your front roller, rear roller, or drive motor

Isolate the bearings in the front and rear rollers from the drive motor bearings

To test: Unplug machine, remove the main shroud, remove drive belt from drive motor and front roller pulley

After doing so, move the treadmill belt by itself by pushing it backward or forward with just your hands and listen for any noise, if you get any noise it is most likely coming from either the front or rear roller. To isolate the noise out of the two rollers you must remove the rollers and turn each one individually.

If no noise with the first test, go ahead and start the machine and run it at a low speed. You want to listen for noise, if you get knocking or grumbling while drive motor is running with no drive belt attached then the issue is in your Drive Motor.

A lot of times simple maintenance will save your treadmill from noise, you want to make sure and lubricate your treadmills *pivot points. Incline motor bolt, shaft, deck screws, and or any *pivot points on the bottom of your machine. Metal on metal *pivot points are usually the culprit in most cases.

*Pivot points are just areas of high friction where there may be a bolt, washer, and nut attached to the base of your frame or any hinges on your folding type treadmills. Metal to metal needs to be lubricated to minimize wear and tear of those areas.

Synthetic grease works best or any spray on lubrication works fine if you do not want to remove any bolts or hardware.

I have a 1995 Chevrolet suburban with a stuck lever on the four wheel drive. It won't go into four wheel drive. How can I fix it?


go underneath and check all pivot points and slides for rust and seized. Check for dried mud build up if you have been off road. Clean the area around the levers and lubricate all moving points.

I have a Singer Merrittlock Differemtial Feed 14u244 Serger complete with manuals. However, none of the manuals or brochure have instructions on where to oil the machine. Therefore I need lubrication...


Page 40 of the manual shows three oiling points on the rear of the sewing surface to be oiled: two holes in the surface and the pivot point for the arm. These are marked with "2-3 drops"

It is equally important to regularly remove all lint from the cutting blades, around the loopers and behind the covers as lint will absorb any lubricant present. I also clean my blades with a cloth with a bit on oil on it every so often to remove all lint and leave an oily film on the blades.

I have an IBM selectric and the keys are gummed up from storage dust. What kind of chemical cleaner can I use to unstick the keys and what type of lubricant do I need to use after I remove the old...


When the keys get badly gummed up you probably need a tech,
however if you know how to remove the case and are brave spray the pivot points on the keylevers with WD40, remove the pivot shaft, work the levers back and forth, each lever has a trip pawl that must be freed up. Like I said you probably need a tech.

SPRAY SOME LUBRICANT INTO THE KEY HOLE AND KEEP WORKING IT WITH THE KEY.YOU MAY NEED TO TAKE IT RIGHT OUT TO LUBE UP THE PIVOT POINTS THAT ARE STICKING.

My back brakes do not retract open after compressing them and the brake cable is not taught with the lever.


More then likely it is just a lubrication issue. Cables and housings need to be lubricated when they malfunction as such. Just a touch of lightwieght oil in the housing will work wonders. Also try lubricating all pivot points on the actual brake arms themselves.

Remember to use a bike specific lub and dont get any on the contacting surfaces of the brake pads......not a good thing at all.

Passenger seat stuck in lying down position.


Use some penetrating lubricant on all pivot points and levers around the recline mechanism, and let the lubricant sit overnight. In the morning, try to work the recline mechanism free. (The vehicle is quite old at this point, and likely parts in the interior need lubrication. These parts should be lubricated annually.)
