I recomend you to disassemble again, and repeat the steps. Something must be there ARE not according with the instruction assembling. Try however for to see the some loose parts, bolts, nuts, and lube.
See this small instruction.s
God bless you
Remove the screws or bolts securing the ends of the pedals to the crank axles. Slide the ends of the pedals off the axles. Remove any screws or bolts securing the left and right disc shields to the base unit. Pull or pry the disc shields off the base unit and set them aside.

2

Remove any screws or bolts securing the left and right side shields to the base unit. Detach the side shields and set them aside. Examine the interior of the base unit and locate the drive belt.

3

Pull the drive belt free of the crank pulley, flywheel and any other pulleys. Discard the old drive belt and install a new belt in its place. Turn the crank axles by hand to confirm that the belt will turn smoothly when the device is in use.
Lubrication:
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.

2

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.

3

Remove the bolts connecting the swing arms to the elliptical's upright. Detach the swing arms from the upright, then spread a layer of machine grease over the axles on the upright. Reattach the arms to the upright.

I have a Proform Smart Stride. It makes a loud clicking noise in the back when you plug it in and has no resistance when it turns no matter the resistance setting.


see the video attached. Lube the rollers bearing front and back. Test the belt drive motor, tight by 1/4" deflection, and replace if necessary.
However if the problem persist, TIME to replace old board deck.
God bless you

How can I increase the loudness of the CDs burned on the internal CD-RW drive?


You can use a free software audio editing and recording program called Audacity. Using this program load your stereo track(s) into Audacity, then look in the effects menu and select normalize. Make sure to set highest loudness level to 0 db, which is the maximum digital volume level. You can hear the difference in volume when you use the test button. If you can't still get enough over all volume level with the normalize feature then you will need to compress and limit the stereo track, but I don't suggest getting your over all loudness levels that high because it ruins and lowers the dynamics of your music. Another words when you compress and boost the over all loudness of your album then all your music is at the same highest audio level which is very ear fatiguing. It may sound better to you at first at louder volume levels but you will quickly learn to hate it over time because it does not sound natural. That is why most music today is all about loudness and ear fatigue. And because of the loudness wars going on today every Record company is trying to have the loudest album out there thinking it will sell more copies. It is all false baloney, it really should be about the quality and dynamics of your sound instead of how loud it is.

Proform 780cs motor is very loud. Funtions properly just suddenly loud.


1) LUBE the deck belt, the lack of this produce enough frictiona and loud, maybe you have a WORN deck belt.
2) LUBE the rollers bearing too.
3) Test the input voltage motor, if there are the motor is faulty, repair.
4) Test the output voltage board, for input voltage board, if there are NOT the board is faulty.

I get a loud scraping noise when I first start up the dryer


It sounds like the drum is off balance, the drum could be scrapping along the side of the dryer. Check for a loose bolt on the drum assembly. Once it starts running the drum levels out and the scrapping noise goes away
