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.)

Nordictrack 3700 makes a knocking sound when I run on it


Hello.
Knocking noises more than likely come from the rear roller, there could be a small chance it's coming from the motor it's self though.
Have some walk on the machine and make the noise while you locate which end of the treadmills coming from.

If it is the rear roller the bearings will need to be replaced, this can be done by removing the rear roller and taking it down to any bearing shop and have them locate the bearing numbers. Ask them for advise on removing them as well.

If the noise is coming from the front of the treadmill then have a look at the fly wheel coming off the motor, locate grub screws and tighten.

Drive Belt


If the dryer makes noise, the belt may be frayed or damaged. If the belt is damaged, it will make noise every time it travels around the pulleys. The drive belt is a long, narrow band that wraps around the entire drum, then around a tension pulley and the motor pulley.

Drum Roller

It is very common for dryer drum rollers to wear out. If the dryer makes noise, particularly a loud rumbling noise, one or more of the rollers may be worn out. After removing the drum from the dryer, inspect the rollers. If one is worn out replace all of them at the same time as a preventative measure.





Drum Roller Axle

Over time the drum roller axles can wear out, causing the rollers to wobble. If this happens the dryer makes noise. If the dryer is making a rumbling noise, check the rollers and axles. If any are worn out, replace them all at the same time.





Blower Wheel

Clumps of lint, socks, and other small articles of clothing can get past the lint filter and into the blower wheel. If the dryer makes noise, and the noise seems to be at a very fast pace, there might be something caught in the blower wheel. In addition, the blower wheel sleeve might be worn out, allowing the blower wheel to wobble on the motor shaft. If this happens, replace the blower wheel.





Drum Bearing

The drum bearing supports the rear of the dryer drum. If the dryer makes noise this bearing might be worn out. Replace the bearing if it is worn out. Do not lubricate the bearing, the lubrication will attract lint and dirt and accelerate the wearing process.





Drum Support Roller & Axle

It is very common for dryer drum rollers to wear out. If the dryer makes noise, particularly a loud rumbling noise, one or more of the rollers or axles may be worn out. After removing the drum from the dryer, inspect the rollers and axles. If one is worn out replace all of them at the same time as a preventative measure.





Drum Support Bearing

The drum support bearing is at the rear of the drum. If the dryer makes noise check this bearing. If it is worn out, replace the entire bearing.





Drum Slide, Glide, or Pad

The drum slides or glides support the front of the drum. As the drum rotates over the years, the glides wear out and then the dryer makes noise. Replace all of the glides as a set if they are worn out.





Drive Motor

Although not very common, if the dryer makes noise the drive motor may be worn out and the motor bearings can become noisy. If this happens the drive motor must be replaced. The bearings are permanently sealed and cannot be lubricated.

Rear end on f-350 makes roaring noise. I checked oil level and it was ok. The oil seems to be very thin. Could wrong oil cause rear end noise?


Differential roaring noise is usually caused by a bearing that is worn or has pitting in the bearing race (half of bearing without rollers). A whining noise would be caused by worn ring and pinion gears. the roaring could be from the carrier bearings (two bearings holding the differential case to the axle housing) or fron the pinion bearings. The fluid is typically heavier but will seem thin when hot. The fluid isn't the causing of the noise but if the wrong fluid is in the differntial it could have caused the bearing to go bad which then causes the noise. good luck.

Kenmore he2 it first was just sqeaking and now its starting to clang


The belt is attached to a belt tensioner which has a roller with a bearing on it. The bearing is dried up making the noise. If you disregards the noise for some time the noise will change as yours did. The roller freezes up causing the belt to wear a flay spot on the roller causing a thumping clanging noise. It is advisable to replace the belt and roller as a unit. Sears sells this as a kit form together. The top will have to come off first the the front panel to gain access to the drum

A clunking noise when running and the dryer still dries


The noise you hear is from a worn bearing that is centered in the belts roller bearing for the be;t tensioner. Sears can get you the replacement parts since they sell these models. they will come as a kit with a belt and the roller assembly with the bearing

I have a dyson dc07 with a malfuncitoning clutch diagnosed here on fixya. I've replaced the clutch and the grinding noise when the clutch is engaged for carpet and non rotating brush problem presists. This...


Greetings from GoVacuum,

If you have replaced the clutch already, then this can really only be one other problem, and that is the roller brush. If the roller brush's bearing have locked up, and the brush is no longer spinning, this is going to cause the clutch to make that horrible grinding noise, and a lot of people incorrectly think automatically that the clutch needs to be replaced.

Here's a very easy way that you can test the roller brush on your Dyson to see if it may have gone bad. In 10 years of fixing and selling vacuum cleaners, I have never seen such a cheap roller brush that's in the Dyson DC07 models with clutches, unfortunately this is notorious problem we see on this particular model.

Ok, so to test out the brush, make sure the vacuum is unplugged, and turn it upside down. Remove the 3 plastic screws on the bottom plate, and remove the bottom plate to expose the brush completely.

You may then simply pull upwards on the roller brush, and take the brush out of the belt that is wrapped around it. After the brush has been completely removed from the vacuum cleaner, hold the brush with only your pointer fingers in each hand, and only put your pointer fingers on the outside of the bearing caps on each side of the roller brush.

While holding only the bearing caps with your fingers, try to spin the brush with your thumbs. The brush should spin freely in your fingers, and you should get a good 5 or 6 rotations with each spin.

If the brush doesn't spin, then your roller brush has gone bad. Espcecially with home that have long haired pets, or females, the hair gets between the bearing cap and the bearing inside and causes the plastic caps that are covering the bearings to heat up, ultimately causing the bearing caps to melt, and finally the bearings sieze, and the brush will no longer spin freely which is why the clutch makes that awful noise.

Good news is that the roller brush is not as expensive or as difficult to replace as the clutch was. You may purchase the DC07 roller brush here;
Genuine Dyson DC-07 Roller Brush for Models That Use a Clutch Part # 904174-01

If your roller brush does spin, then I'm baffled as to what could be causing the clutch to make noise, but I'd like to try and help you figure this out.

Please send me an email to chris.jones@govacuum.com, or just request a clarification request here on Fixya, and I'd be more then happy to try and diagnosis this Dyson further for you.

Thank you so much, I hope that this helps you.

Treadmill adjustment on bowflex 5000tc


There are two hexagonal screws on either side of the front rollers, and four inset hexagonal screws on the back rollers. Turn it on the lowest speed while turning the ones in front, one at a time. You'll see the tread move from one side to the other. Tightening the screws bring the rollers out, pulling the rubber tread taught, and to the left or right, depending on which screw you're turning at the time. The treads should roughly be the same tension, adjusting both inside and outside front screws for each tread. If you have the dual rear rollers, you'd then have to stop the machine after finishing the fronts and tighten the four inset hexagonal screws on each of the rear rollers. No adjustment per se, just tighten them. If you don't, you'll have a sort of clunking, or clicking noise from the imbalance. The single rear roller is a little different, and the adjustment I believe, can be found on this site:
