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
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.
