Question about Nordic Track GX 4.5 Cycle

Open Question

Eddy mechanism slips

From the time it was new the recumbant bike would occasionally break loose and turn freely when it was in use. It happened more often and now will not hold for even one turn. The problem seems to be on the shaft of the eddy mechanism. Apparently, whatever makes it hold when peddled forward is not catching well enough to hold under even light pressure. The bike cost about $400, but Nordic Track wants $465 for a new "eddy mechanism". It seems like it must be just a small part of the inner shaft that is causing the problem.

SOURCE: Nordic Track treadmill trips GFI.

Have you lubricated the the running deck? The lack of lubrication can increase friction thus causing the GFI to trip. simple test start the treadmill do not walk on a see if the GFI is tripped in it does trip then lubricate, then if after lubricate it still the you have a worn belt and possibly damaged deck depending replacement price and on what you paid for the treadmill it may or may not be worth fixing.

Have you tried adjusting the rear roller bolts with an allen wrench? That usually works for me.

Unfortunately now I have a slipping problem that tightening the belt via the roller bolts doesn't fix. In fact, I feel as if the belt is too tight as it only lifts about 2" instead of the recommended 3-4". Hope we get some other ideas here!

SOURCE: our belt is slipping on our nordic track c1900

I have the same unit. First, remove the hood. Then, the motor has an adjustment screw on the belt side of the motor. Loosen the nut a little, adjust the motor up or down to make the belt as tight as you can by hand, then re-tighten the nut. This always fixes mine.

Petals turn freely with no resistance... is there a chain or belt?


if the pedals are direct to the wheel , there will be no chain
if the pedal arms are back from the wheel , it will be a chain which has probably broken or come off the cogs under the covers
The fix will be to remove the covers and see what has happened

How can I fix the slippage in my Schwinn 215 recumbent bike pedal?


Problem is in the back wheel or the "freewheel" The replacement of this part is recommended but it requires special tools. Take your bike to the local bike shop for this problem.

    Check your owner's manual for diagrams and definitions. You'll need this information when you put the elliptical back together. You'll also want definitions in case you need to call the customer support line for assistance.

    Be aware that the resistance is often the part that requires repair. Resistance is managed magnetically, so often if the machine is working, but the resistance isn't setting correctly or at all, check the bolts that secure the magnets. If they are loose, the resistance will slip. If the bolts are fine, check the magnets themselves by using a refrigerator magnet and see if it is attracted or repelled by the your fridge magnet. If not, the magnets have de-magnetized and need to be replaced.

    Consider that if the foot pedals are attached with bolts, any slipping can be fixed with a quick use of the wrench. But if the foot pedals are damaged or breaking, order new foot pedals (see Resources below) rather than run the risk of a pedal breaking while you're on the machine.

    Check the hand bars. While not all people use them, as they can elevate your heart rate by up to 20 percent, they can become worn, too. While loose hand bars typically need a simple tightening of the bolt, be sure not to overtighten as the bolts can break.

    Know that if the axis is bent, it's likely you need a new machine. The axis is the central alignment of the elliptical. If the machine was used by a person who is over the maximum weight limit, it can be bent or damaged. It's not an easy fix and a better idea is to upgrade to a sturdier machine.

    What's better a recumbent or an upright exercise bike?


    Recumbent bike works best for elderly people with back and hip problems because of the relaxed position and the angle that put's less pressure on those areas. Upright exercise bike works on more areas than the recumbent bikes including the lower abdominal muscles.

    Black smoke coming from exhaust occasionally.


    Black smoke is indicative of carbon or incomplete combustion caused by either poor ignition (weak spark) or too much fuel (choke setting). Check out these areas.
