    I am going through the same issue, Display is telling me I have a bad speed sensor after running the machine through th recalibration mode. New speed sensor is around 5 $ and tech support line they commonly go bad. Good luck, on the upside they are easy to replace.

    I am having the same problem. I called and the rep told me the back roller is bad. After several hours of repairing the machine myself, it still is not working. Bowflex should be ashamed of selling a product that needs constant reapairs!!!

I didn't use mine for several years then just started again. It stopped after 15 minutes so I read the manual and used a silcone lubricant on/under the treads as recommended. That definitely helped and it was working again quite well for about a week or two. Now I get the error 5 again. Wondering if I needed to add MORE lubricant the first time so I am going to do it again tonight. Maybe it is the roller pully that needs the lubricant. Who knows. I just want it to work!! I am determined. :)

202 diagram

Got top website for parts diagram
Probably dirty. Take apart and clean, and lube. Be careful to not bend or break or lose any parts. U se your you phone or camera to record taking it apart. Try to do it in one setting, everything looks different when you return a day or two later to try to put it back together. My answers are short and sweet. Common sense mostly. If you are trying to get something for nothing...Don't waste my time! Remember if something sounds to good to be true that it usually is. I've spent many years of my life trying to cheat the system and was pretty good at it. This all changed when I discovered that people were doing the same thing to me. What comes around, goes around. Karma! Now I assist people in making win-win deals...that are legit!

I have been playing tennis for a few years now in Mississauga and Toronto. Are there any tips on how I could improve my endurance and court coverage? Should I change my training program to a tennis...

If you are undergoing coaching, then you already are following a tennis specific program. But the intensity of your training depends on the level of tennis you play. To further improve your fitness, you could try to go to some tennis coaching centre or clinic of repute that provides a tennis specific training regimen. They would have a program that would help improve your technique, breathing, endurance, etc. Depending on their quality, they might have trainers who could work with you individually to help identify your strengths and weaknesses. As far as improving your court coverage is concerned, a good training centre apart from the normal training might provide separate athlete agility training programs that can be custom suited to your needs. There could be several such centers in Mississauga and Toronto.

Got the basketball poles stuck together and theyre not aligned

Dropping the stuck poles definitely WORKS! We had stuck basketball poles from a Spaulding 54 inch together wrongly. Dropped them on grass from shoulder height 4 times and they loosened enough to pull apart.

Two sections of my fishing pole have become stuck together , how do i get them to come apart without breaking them ?

That is a tough question and I can't make any guarantees, but I will tell you what worked for me once, if you promise not to laugh. I put the sections in a freezer for short periods of time and kept going and trying to pull the sections apart every little while. The cooling caused contraction and I was eventually able to get the sections apart. I told you not to laugh. Best wishes.
