Load resister is not working it is very hard to peddle


Procedure 6.4 - Troubleshooting the Generator
The generator performs three functions in the EFX. First, by controlling the amount of electrical
load applied to the generator, the user's pedalling resistance is controlled. Second, the generator
is used to charge the EFX's internal battery. Lastly, one of the generators six phase output
windings is monitored to determine when the unit is in use and when it is idle. This system also
determines the stride rate by determining the operating speed (output frequency) of the
monitored generator winding.
Warning
Because this is a self powered unit, it will either be necessary to either equip the unit with the
optional external power supply or have an assistant pedal on the unit while voltage
measurements are being taken. Because of the danger of working on the unit while it is in motion
using the optional external power supply is strongly recommended.
1. Perform the generator resistance test per Procedure 5.1. If any of the resistance
measurements are significantly high or significantly low, replace the generator.
2. The following voltage reading must be taken while the unit is in motion. Extreme care must
be taken to keep meter leads, hands, etc. clear of all moving parts. Using an AC voltmeter,
measure the voltage between 1 & 3, 2 & 3, 5 & 7 and 6 & 7 on J1 of the lower PCA. All AC
voltage readings will vary depending on the unit's stride rate at the time the measurement is
taken. At a stride rate of 100 strides per minute, all three voltage readings will be
approximately 100 VAC -110 VAC.
3. If any of the six readings in step 2 are significantly low, replace the generator.

The needle skipping is caused by (A) a worn stylus. (B) not enough pressure. Which is solved by adjusting the weight on the end of the arm. It can only really be solved by trial and error. You increase the weight slightly, then play the record. You keep doing this till the record stays in the grooves but doesn't make a rumble sound. If it starts to rumble reduce the weight.

I'm no expert, but based on the general idea of operation for a turntable, it sounds like the arm is getting bound up or being hindered in some way. If you pick the arm up and swing it back and forth manually, can you feel a place in the movement that seems to have some degree of resistance? You would want to move the arm very slowly and feel for even the slightest amount of resistance. It doesn't take much force to hold the arm from advancing. An ill positioned wire in the base of the arm could be the culprit or if the unit has an automated return home mechanism, there could be a problem there as well. Maybe working the arm back and forth manually several times to its fullest allowable extension, will help to eliminate the impediment. Do this caringly and without excessive force. I hope this helps.

When i play a record it skips and when i play it on another turntable the same record doesnt skip


Hi, most likely a worn stylus or the tracking weight is set too lightly. Adjust the balance weight at the back end of tonearm forward slightly. If no weight adjustment available put a very small coin on the end of tonearm above the stylus. styluscity@gmail.com

Regarding the poor sound quality (and possibly the skipping):
check the needle condition, see if exchanging it with a needle (or the entire pickup head) from a working turntable does any good.

Check the pickup connection pins (contacts on the pickup head and on the end of the wires coming through the arm from the unit), see if there is any dirt or oxydation and clean the contacts if necessary, also check for any damage to the wires.

As for the skipping - a heavily worn needle may affect the sound quality and cause skipping as well - if cahnging the needle (or the pickup head) doesn't make a change, try to realign the weight on the tone arm so that the pickup head will become a bit heavier, this could help somewhat (before you actually try to realign the weight, try to put a small coin or a small weight of some kind on the pickup head while it is playing a record, if the skipping goes away, you need to realign the tone arm weight).

This could also be a problem with the tone arm lifting mechanism (may be obstructed by something or damaged so it won't let the tone arm sit properly onto the record and "grab" the groove).

I just mentioned a few things you might want to check, but don't take anything for granted, the problem may as well be elsewhere in the unit.

Hardly start; skips badly at low rpm; smooths out some after 3000


I had a similar problem and traced it to the hole in the gas cap was rusted shut so that the engine was starved for gas. I drilled a small hole in the gas cap and it runs like new. Sorry-no new gas caps are available through the Honda dealer as the bike is so old.

My bernina sewing machine won't do zig zag stitch on one side. when i sew only one half of the sitch works.


Sounds like its skipping stitches. The very first thing to do is put in a new needle. A dull needle will cause this for sure.
After that it may take a tech to make some adjustments.

1) The hook is slightly out of time. On this type mechanism, there is
a slight difference in timing for the different needle positions.

2) The needle bar is slightly too high.

3) The hook and needle are too far apart, and then the skipping would
be more apt to show up on light weight fabrics.
