If the display stays at 1, then the UP button may be at fault, in which case you would need a new keypad.

Resistance on precor 576i will not increase

This sounds like it's the membrane on the console faceplate. It'll have to be replaced.

How do I adjust the tension. Even at zero resistance it is too difficult

Hi Doug,
You may have a problem with the resistance motor. The covers will have to be taken off to fix.
Usually when you increase or decrease the resistance you will hear the motor working. Do you hear it ?

This could be caused by either a bad lower electronic board or the brake/generator. I am attaching a link to the service manual for you for further reference.,%20C546i%20Self%20Powered%20EFX.pdf

Golds gym 380 elliptical is not increasing resistance

follow this steps, God bless you
    • 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.

How to increase resistance on Blackburn Tech Fluid Trainer? I know it is supposed to increase with rpm's, but I am not a strong rider and I just rode 90 minutes in my biggest gear with only moderate...

Fluid trainers work by providing resistance that increases as your effort increases, much like riding on the road. There is not a switch or lever to increase the resistance with this specific trainer. So in short you have to put in a bigger effort to get more resistance. Putting in more effort and increasing your Cadence (rpm's) will provide a harder resistance and will decrease your duration attainable. This is OK. One of the benefits of using a trainer is that you can get more accomplished in less time.

What is the function of the motor relay on my master 110,000btu heater The relay,capacitor,or overload has an ID # Murata 60 PTH491A01 AS3RN160. The Motor does not start strong after multiple starts.

The PTH491 is a ptc thermistor. Its low resistance when off allows a maximum current to flow in the starting winding. As the temperature increases, so does its resistance. The starting winding is essentially isolated from the running winding once the motor has reached operating speed because of this increase in resistance.

My 1993 concorde has a problem with the power windows. After driving for about 10 minutes the controls won't work. The fuse is very hot to the touch. After the car cools down the windows will work again...

I dont know if it is a fuse that is hot, maybe a Circuit breaker that got hot.
Law: With increase resistance Increase Tempurature.
Something is Acting as resistance in your window switch or on the motor or the window itself (ei tint)

One simple things you can do to help this would Be to clean the Glass of your car And the Lttle **** of the door where the window slides up and down.. And remove Excessive Tint.
If the windows still do not react until cool, then it could be your motor with high resistance.
