SOURCE: The belt is slipping and making a squealing sound

This is caused by one of three problems. First and most likely, the walking belt is loose. To tighten the belt, start by locating the two bolts that adjust the rear roller (one on each side of the unit in the back). Run the unit at about 3 mph. Tighten the bolts a 1/4 turn at a time. Make sure that what you do to one side, you MUST do to the other side or the belt will get off center. After you tighten it 1/4 turn, check the belt to see if it is still slipping. If it is then tighten the belt 1/4 turn again. Continue until the belt does not slip, but do not tighten the bolts more than 2 full turns. If it takes more than 2 turns then something else is the problem. The second problem that it could be is the drive belt might be loose. To tighten the drive belt, start by removing the front cover. loosen the bolts around the motor then tighten the drive belt by tightening the motor adjuster bolt. Once the drive belt is tight, tighten the motor back down. The third problem that it could be is the walking belt could be worn and need to be replaced. Let me know if you have any questions.

SOURCE: proform gr 80 recumbent exercise bike cant get the

The GR80 uses for type D batteries. The battery compartment is on the bottom of the console, look for the D-shaped battery door, press the tab located towards the front side of the console and open the door. Careful, the batteries may fall down if you open the door - type Ds are heavy enough to be felt when they fall on your feet.

The resistance control broke on my pro form xp 400 after 4 years of good use. A replacement console sells for $180. I just popped off the plastic rotary control and behind it was the reostat stem which can be turned with two fingers. Now I have resistance control again. Happy days are here again!

1984 Yamaha Venture Squealing somewhere towards the front end of the bike.

Unhook the speedo cable at the wheel and zip tie it up somewhere safe so the cable doesn't fall out of the sheath, and test ride. If the squeal doesn't go away it's the speedometer gear or something else at the wheel. If it does go away the bearings in the speedo itself are drying out. You'd then have to pull the cluster, fit a pipe cap with a grease zerk threaded to it onto the back of the speedo, and grease with appropriate bearing grease which I believe is moly grease.

Proform XP110 R recumbent bike makes clanking noise.

I have the same problem with my XP 110. After taking the ENTIRE thing apart and independently testing every single moving mechanism, I found out that it wasn't the motor, pedals, armbars, or any internal mechanism. Instead, it was the front stabilizer foot that made the annoying noise. There is a plastic mechanism around the front stabilizer legs that holds the front wheels in place (for moving the elliptical). Whenever a rotation forward occurs, the plastic squeaks and the noise resonates to make it sound like the pedals or motor is squeaking. I am still trying to find a solution to fixing the feet, but may end up ordering a new set from the manufacturer. Good luck with your elliptical!

Squealing noise during spin cycle

The spin cycle activates the fast mode on the motor, squealing normal occurs due to belt slippage. I would check your belts (look for cracks. Check the belt tension as well, most washers have an adjustment, normally on the motor that allows you to increase the tension of the belt.
