Question about Bowflex Treadclimber TC5300

Bowflex Treadclimber rubs against housing.

We just bought a Bowflex Treadclimber 5000 and the right climber rubs against the housing. There is more space on the left between the climber and the housing, but on the right, the climber is right against the housing.

Adjustment is needed. Remove rear covers and using a 9/16 wrench lossen the four bolts that secure treadle assembly to base. Place a 3/4 inch piece of plywood or a 3/8 inch socket extension in between the treadles in the front area. with that in place center them about an 1/8 in closer to the right upright as when you tighten the four bolt up the drive belt will place additional pressure and they should center perfect. tighten bolts...tight. remove wedge from between treadles and recalibrate unit. replace covers and enjoy. Use turtle wax on area rubbed to prevent rust.

When I put my Bowflex tc 5000 at the highest speed it turns itself off in a minute. Does anyone else have this problem?

This sounds like something that had been happening to a treadmill at our gym.. The problem there was that the moving parts were getting too hot and thus, the machine swithes off to not start burning up/breaking both instances may cause injury to the user.. u need to have it checked by a professional

Where can I get this machine serviced? The gate feels uneven. The left pad almost seems to be hitting ground before the right pad completes its stride.

hello. call bowflex directly and ask Call (800) 667-1689. They probably have service centers located around the world. Joe

Napa 8300 silicone is recommended. Apply under belts from front to back one fluid spray and also in bearing areas. Squeaking can also be caused by the center of the treadles rubbing to hard. If this is the case they need to be adjusted.

I Have a TC500 2004 model with 2 rear roller bars. The bearing leaked the fluid and it make so much noise. Bowflex no longers sells those rollers. Where can I ehter buy them? Help Thanks

It might just need an adjustment of the hexagonal screws on both the front and rear rollers. Check out the post I had on adjusting someone's belt that was rubbing...the steps are the same. You're right, they don't sell the dual rears anymore, so if my other solution doesn't work, you'll have to call nautilus and purchase the newer treadles, which run about $900 from Bowflex. They sometimes give a 20% discount if you're nice to them, but it's still a lot of money. If the noise you hear is a consistent clicking or clunking sound, then you might get by with just adjusting it. If it's a constant scraping sound then new parts are most likely your only option. Here's a site that gives a blowup of the parts (unfortunately, I don't think they have the one for your older model, but the aside from the rear roller, it's basically the same.)

Good luck.

Sensor wires detatched during initial assembly of Bowflex TC1000

You will need to make contact with bowflex if you broke the item. You may be able to glue back the item as well. The front lid come off, sometime you have to tilt the machine with another person. This will allow you to get to the under side.
