Question about Total Gym XLS
Posted by Anonymous on
I have an XLS and it started squeaking, but the glide board is not the source of the squeak on my total gym, to check this try the following, put board to its highest setting then sit on the top of the board facing the machine with your legs over the end. Sit upright so you can see the columb as you pull on the handles.
On my machine as the handles are pulled it causes the chrome arms that that the pulleys are attached to, to flex slightly towards you. This part is lined with a plastic inner piece that
squeaks as the outer flexes.
Its a minor design problem, to fix this you need to stop the flexing. This can be achieved cheaply by a carefully cut piece of wood, functional but doesn't look too flash, or a nicely shaped metal plate painted black or chromed (your choice) drilled onto the face of the chromed slider will do the job, do not do this yourself unless you have some engineering or metalworking skills. Try a block of wood first to verify if that is the problem with your machine.
Keep the tracks clean, a light coat of silicon spray on them and the wheels and bearings also worth trying. If the squeak is from the actual bearings replace with new ones from Hucks.
