How can I turn off the sound to the foot pedals of my Lowery organ. Is there any setting on the organ to do that?


If you turn off any voice tabs for the pedals, they are effectivly turned off.

Trek 7300 effort pedaling


If the wheels spin free then I would look at the bottom bracket. All of the force you use for pedaling relies on the bearings in the bottom bracket being good. Are the pedals hard to turn by hand? Do the pedals themselves spin freely? If the wheels turn, this really only leaves these two rotating points as possible suspects.

How do I remove pedals from a magnecycle?


Hello there.
Don't know about Magnacycle but the Owners guide for Magnetrainer

http://www.magnetrainer.com/MagneTrainerUsersManual.pdf


shows the Pedals screw in to the Pedal Arms,So it appears you need a thin slim Spanner / Wrench to undo the Pedals from the Pedal Arms by inserting it between the arm and the Pedal itself. You will have to turn the Pedal in the Opposite directions to that shown in the Manual.
to get the pedals off and leave the Arms where they are already.

Son's can pedal 12" bike


Yes, something isn't turning freely. It's either the front wheel, the back wheel, or the pedals and chain. Lift the bike off the ground and turn the front wheel by hand. If it doesn't turn very freely, it could be the hand-brake is dragging or the hub bearing is too tight. Try the back wheel in both directions. It should move freely in the forward direction. When rolling it backwards it is normal for the pedals to move too if this bike has a coaster brake (that is the kind of brake that is applied by pushing the pedals backwards.) It the back wheel moves forward freely, but backwards is a problem, then try the pedals by hand with the rear wheel off the ground. If this doesn't turn freely, the pedal crank bearing (a.k.a. bottom bracket) is too tight. Once you have identified the problem take it back to where you got it. It should be easy to fix, or they should replace it.

How to use the Proform 515S EKG Elliptical?


To mount the elliptical trainer, firmly hold the handlebars or the T-handle and carefully step onto the pedal that is in the lowest position. Next, step onto the other pedal. Push the pedals until they begin to move with a continuous motion. Note: The pedal disks can turn in either direction. It is recommended that you turn the pedal disks in the direction shown below; however, to give variety to your exercise, you may choose to turn the pedal disks in the opposite direction.
To dismount the elliptical trainer, allow the pedals to come to a complete stop. CAUTION: The elliptical trainer does not have a free wheel; the pedals will continue to move until the flywheel stops. When the pedals are stationary, step off the highest pedal first. Then, step off the lowest pedal.
As you exercise, you can adjust the resistance of the pedals with the resistance knob on the console. To increase the resistance, turn the knob clockwise; to decrease the resistance, turn the knob counterclockwise.

Remove the pedals from a boys huffy bike


Bike pedals can be a little tricky, but most likely for that bike you will need a 9/16's wrench. There should be some flat surfaces inboard of the pedals between the crank arm (the long arm that you screw the pedals into). Now, here's the hard part - the R pedal is normally threaded, but the L pedal is reversed. The easiest way to remember which way to turn the wrench is to stand behind the rear wheel and you will always pull the wrench towards you to loosen. Depending on how long the pedals have been on, they might be pretty tough to get off. You could use some penetrating spray (like Liquid Wrench) and let that sit for awhile. Also, once you get the pedals off, remember to put a little grease on the threads so that next time they won't be so tough!.

Pedals are hard to turn as bike had set up for 20 years.


The pedal ball bearings are probably rusted and/or seized. Try putting oil into the side of the pedal, or replace the pedals. The right one has a right hand thread the left has a left hand thread.
