If you can hear the adjustment motor running the problem could be related to two things:
1. Broken or stretched resistance adjustment cable.
2. Broken bracket for the magnet return spring.
If the resistance is on maximum all the time the second issue is most likely the cause.

Open the rear part where the "guts" are. The magnet will be stuck against the wheel that turns when you pedal because the cable that the resistance motor pulls to remove the tension will have too much slack in it. The cable probably came off of the pulley wheel that is used to providing the necessary tension to pull the magnet off of the wheel.

To get the case off, simply unhook the right side pedal, remove the 4 bolts holding on the crank thing to remove it, then using a philips head screwdriver, remove the screws in the screw holes on the case cover. Be sure to remove the one screw on the other side near the front in order to allow the front part to "unsnap".

SOURCE: Resistance on elliptical acting weird

1) tight the bolts tension for magnet and clean very well. and proof..if the fail
2) go to test the magnet, use again the magnet from your refrigerator magnet, for attraction and repulsion. If do not pass the TEST replace the magnet in any Hardware such home depot, etc.

I have a pro tec sports pts windtrainer 800 & can't figure out how to make it pedal harder, please help


There is no way to make a wind trainer harder as it uses fan blades and air for resistance. You could try shifting to a harder gear on the bicycle. If it still isn't hard enough, you will have to go to an adjustable mag resistance or fluid trainer.

ProForm 675 elliptical is very hard to peddle


use the next steps:
Step 1

Use your flathead screwdriver to pry off the plate on the left side of the elliptical trainer.
Step 2

Look for the magnet and reed switch. These elements will be roughly the same size, and the reed switch should have a series of wires connected to it.
Step 3

Loosen the screw in the reed switch using your screwdriver. Move the reed switch by hand until it sits 1/8 inch from the magnet, then re-tighten the screw.
Step 4

Test the unit to see if the display and heart rate monitor are working properly. If not, move the reed switch slightly so it is closer or farther from the magnet, then try the machine again. Once you've found the correct location for the switch, tighten the screw to hold the reed switch in place.
Step 5

Replace the cover plate by snapping it into position by hand

My Kinetic trainer increases resistance when I increase speed. How can I maximize resistance at low cadence of say 60 rpm?


You can't with this type of trainer. You have to have a trainer where you can manually adjust the resistance. The closest you can do is shift your gearing.

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.

How do I adjust my minoura mag 500 for a 27


Actually, you just move the resistance unit back and then secure the bike's rear wheel by the skewers. Then adjust the resistance unit up against the tire.

How to use the Proform 515S EKG Elliptical?


To mount the elliptical trainer, firmly hold the handlebars or the T-handle and carefully step onto the pedal that is in the lowest position. Next, step onto the other pedal. Push the pedals until they begin to move with a continuous motion. Note: The pedal disks can turn in either direction. It is recommended that you turn the pedal disks in the direction shown below; however, to give variety to your exercise, you may choose to turn the pedal disks in the opposite direction.
To dismount the elliptical trainer, allow the pedals to come to a complete stop. CAUTION: The elliptical trainer does not have a free wheel; the pedals will continue to move until the flywheel stops. When the pedals are stationary, step off the highest pedal first. Then, step off the lowest pedal.
As you exercise, you can adjust the resistance of the pedals with the resistance knob on the console. To increase the resistance, turn the knob clockwise; to decrease the resistance, turn the knob counterclockwise.
