Mine did this as well--turn the shock 180 degrees so the sticker is down and the caution sticker--this fixed mine. The shock is probably slightly off from the factory and is in a bind the other way. Hope this fixes the problem for others.

    I just bought one for $25 off of craigslist and was about to toss it because of the squeaking. This worked perfectly - thank you.

Dear sir when ido the rowing in the machine both the arms are getting loose so soon why

If it's a nut coming loose from a bolt you could try Threadlock compound. It's a liquid you put on the thread of the bolt before putting the nut on. As you tighten it up the air is forced out of the thread and the liquid sets to lock the nut in place.

Tension pully arm will not move back to get the belt on

get a long breaker arm with proper socket size to fit the bolt center of pulley.

squirt some pb blaster or wd-40 on pivot point and wait a few minutes.

pull the wrench handle to deflect the spring inside the arm and move the pulley.
