Follow this instruction. God bless you
Detach the ends of the pedals from the crank axles. Spread a layer of machine grease over the crank axles, then reattach the ends of the pedals.


Remove the bolts connecting the pedals to the swing arms. Detach the pedals from the arms, then spread a layer of machine grease over the axles on the swing arms. On some models, the bolts may also serve as the axles. Reattach the pedals to the arms.

Panel will not light battery did not help

On C846 version 1 units, set the on/off switch in the "on" position. It will be necessary to start pedaling for the bicycle to "power up".

For any other units, we recommend checking for any loose, crimped, or visually bad wires.

Make sure the speed sensor on your bike is working.
You can run a quick test by using a magnet to swipe in front of the sensor to see if it is sending signal to your console.

For any further troubleshooting please do no hesitate to call our Tech Support Team 888-713-2880

The car starts to move very slowly and looses power easily while driving on the highways.

Sounds like clutch is slipping. If you accelerate and it does not respond I would say clutch assembly is bad.

Good brake pedal till i start the truck then it gets soft

You need to adjust up the rear brakes and also check back there for leaking wheel cylinders and maybe even a bad bearing in the axle assembly, worn shaft,accompanied by a leaking axle seal that will appear really nasty and smell bad too...

I have also seen this model with a crappy pedal when the brake hoses have become softened and expand under pressure

Hi i own a 1998 chevy siliverado and my brakes are not working adequately, im not losing break fluid so im unsure of the problem

If the pedal seems really hard to push, you could have a bad brake booster. If the pedal feels OK but there is not much action from the brakes, there could be an internal leak in your master cylinder. If your vehicle is equipped with Antilock Brakes, it could be a bad Hydraulic Control Unit.

Dear, i have a problem with brakes. When i do press pedal on first pressing car is stopping, but if i do press pedal several time quickly pedal is becoming hard after pressing, and take 1-2 seconds pedal...

The problem you are describing sounds like the master cylinder. Usually the brake pedal is hard when the vacuum booster goes bad. It would feel the same whether the engine is running or not since there would be a vacuum problem and vacuum is provided by the engine. When the pedal is fading it's usually a problem with a seal inside of the master cylinder. When you replace it, save yourself some time and bench bleed it. Fill it with fluid, and if equipped, which rebuilt ones usually are, screw in the plastic fitting lines and run the open ends back into the reservoir and pump the actuator until the bubbles stop. Bolt it to the vehicle and start the lines. Have someone press the pedal, and while all the way down hold it there. Snug the lines up and have them release the pedal. Have them press it to the floor again and hold it there. Loosen the lines slowly to let what little air remains out, tighten them, and then have them release the pedal. That will rhymes with duck but starts with "s" (avoiding censorship) the remaining air out the top instead of bleeding the entire system from the wheels and pushing the air all the way through them. Please rate my assistance and leave a testimonial.

Power supply for Precor C846?

There are several different versions of the Precor C846. Please locate your make and model number at the link above to view the parts list for your machine. Here is an AC adaptor that supports several of the C846's, and here is one that supports some other C846 models. Again, please verify the exact model number of your machine before buying any parts, because sometimes similar machines use different parts and you want to make sure you have the correct one.

99 ford expedition, abs light stays on, front brakes seem to be dragging

When was the last time you changed the front brake pads?
Try this:
Keep the brake pedal pressed down and start the car, after it idles for about 10 second let go of the pedal. If the light comes on just as you leave the pedal - try pumping it a few times, turn the car off and pump the pedal some more until it becomes real hard.
Then, keeping your foot to the pedal, start the car.
Idle for about 10 seconds, let go of the pedal and press it again rel fast.
If the light doesnt come on again - it means you have a leak of some sort or that the main brake pump should be replaced.

Good luck.
