Your machine can be fixed but I do not recommend fixing it as the cost of this repair is prohibitive. You are better of replacing the machine, even with a good used one for under 200 as this particular repair will be much more than that

How do I keep the left wheel from coming off the track while using the machine?


The most common fix for the wheels sliding off track is to clean off the lubrication along the rails and then reapply a small amount back to the rails.

The main problem is usually over lubrication.
This is just a quick troubleshooting step and we hope it helps :)

Sole elliptical display first said Level Err and now says Motor Error. What can I do to fix this?


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
Check power problems if the console on the elliptical machine does not light up. Make sure that the plug for the machine is secure in the outlet. If it is plugged in, ensure that the outlet is receiving power. Check the breaker to make sure it has not tripped off.
Be sure that you are using the correct adapter that came with the elliptical machine. Because different adapters are able to handle differing amounts of energy, the wrong adapter will not transfer electricity like it should. If the adapter is pinched or damaged, this could also alter its effectiveness.

Make sure the correct adapter is being used if the resistance settings seem to be too hard or too easy. If the correct adapter is being used, reset the machine. To reset the machine, either switch the "On/Off" button or unplug the machine from the wall. Doing this will allow the device to reset itself to the default resistance. Turn on or plug the device back into the wall and retry all of the levels of resistance.

Do not be concerned if you see small particles left on the guide rails. Over time, the roller wheels gradually wear down. When this occurs, they leave residue on the rails. Because this is considered to be normal wear, all you need to do to fix the problem is wipe the rails off with a damp cloth.

Minimize the risk of receiving erratic readouts on the monitors by avoiding outside interference. For example, gripping the heart rate handlebars too tightly can affect the monitor. Similarly, the heart rate grips can be rendered less effective when there is too much vibration. Consider not holding these monitors throughout the workout to minimize vibration. The readouts also can be affected by jewelry. To minimize errors, take off rings and other jewelry before working out on an elliptical machine.

Good Morning !!! Does the tub move sided to side


Yes, the tub should move freely as you describe. The suspension doesn't rely on guide rails, but rather, on four suspension balls and rods. The unit should not have been moved horizontally because the suspension could be disengaged, but you may be ok. I would just level the machine properly and run a load in it. If the suspension has come apart, you'll definitely know it because the machine will bang loudly and try to "walk" across the floor. If that happens, respond back and I'll try to help you open the machine and fix it.

Good luck.

We have a sharp AL 1553. It is flashing 1-L. I cannot find out what this fault means or how to fix it.


L1 or L1-00 indicates Scanner movement failure. The scanner is the part under the glass that lights up and moves back and forth. So if you lift up the feeder so you can see the glass, turn the machine off for a few seconds then back on. Watch the movement of the scanner. It should move right and inch or two then back to the left. If all goes well the copier should come to ready. Lay a piece of paper on the glass and press the print button to watch the scanner movement. If it binds up or does not scan correctly there are 2 possibilities.
1) your scanner lock is engaged and is preventing the scanner from moving. Check the clear plastic dial located under the far left upper side of the copier, near where the paper exits the machine. Make sure it is in the unlocked position.
2) Your scanner rail is dirty and dry. This rail can be seen under the glass towards the back of the copier. The scanner rides on this rail. It is very common for these to get dirty and for the grease to dry up causing the scanner to freeze up on the rail. The glass must be removed and the rail cleaned and lubricated.
Just power off then on the copier to reset.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

W-pool top loading washing machine-(LSQ9010PG2) leaking water from under the washer on to the floor


The drain pump is broken and leaking. Replace the drain pump (part #3363394) to fix the problem.

Remove the two screws at the back of the console securing it to the back of the machine. Once the screws are removed, hold the base of the console, lift it up slightly then flip the console to the back of the machine.

The machine's cabinet is held to the back by two clips on both sides. Insert the blade of a flat-bladed screwdriver into the lip of the clip on the cabinet side then push the screwdriver handle to the back of the machine to release the clip. Do the same to the other clip.

Disconnect the white connector connecting the lid switch wiring harness to the body of the machine.

Lift the lid then hold the front rim of the cabinet, not the tub. Tilt the cabinet to the front and lift it forward to clear the front bottom rail of the cabinet from the rail at the base of the machine. Lift up the cabinet all the way and away from the machine.

Pry off the two clips securing the drain pump to the drive motor.

Using a pair of pliers, compress the spring clamps holding the pump's inlet and outlet hoses and move it away from the pump.

Remove the hoses from the pump and install the hoses into the new pump. Once the hoses are properly installed, compress the spring clamps and put it back in place into the pump to secure the hoses.

Install the pump into the drive motor aligning the spline in the motor with the slot in the pump. Clip the pump into position to the drive motor and reinstall the cabinet.

Slide the front bottom rail of the cabinet under the rail at the base of the machine then lay down the cabinet into position. Make sure the slots in the cabinet sit into the tabs at the base of machine.

Secure the cabinet to the back of the machine with the two retaining clips. Inset the clips into the slots on the back of the machine then push it down into position to the slots on the cabinet.

Reconnect the lid switch wiring harness connector and reinstall the console.

Insert the console tabs into the slots on the cabinet and secure the console to the back of the machine.

The chain has become completely loose and will not recoil, ?


You didn't say what model you have, but I believe they are all functionally similar to my Model B rower. There is a "skewer" assembly inside the seat rail with a shock cord and pulley's that keeps tension in the chain throughout its range of travel. To some extent it is adjustable by taking slack out of the shock cord. On mine, this can be done by grabbing the shock cord adjustment mechanism ("SCAM") with pliers and pulling it out of the rear of the machine and adjusting the slack. If it is very loose or you just want to be sure of what is going on, the entire skewer assembly pulls out from the front (flywheel side) of the seat rail after removing four screws that hold it in place. Go to the concept2 website for diagrams, instructions, and parts lists for your model.

Check printer error


Check to see that nothing is blocking your cartridge assembly from moving laterally. Unplug the A/C cord from your B640 and manually move the cartridge to the center of the rail. Close the front door which houses the cartridge assembly. Plug the A/C cord back into your unit. The unit should reinitialize and after doing so rest the cartridge to the far right end of the rail. This may not fix your problem, but it will confirm whether there is a cartridge transport problem. This is just the beginning in troubleshooting your problem.

This is a common problem. You did the correct procedure. Lubricating the rail is what I would do. What you need to do is find the best type of oil to use. Some may actually make it worse. Start by cleaning the rail with alcohol. Saturate your rag and move the rail back and forth to make sure you get all of the old lubrication out of the rail bushings. Really do a good job at this because the old stuff is actually creating the problem. Next is lubricating the rail. I use 3 in 1 sewing machine oil. It is a very thin oil that will last longer for you. Never use teflon or wd-40 this will build up and make it worse. Give it a try. I also have seen the rail where it is worn because of lack of lubrication and it was not worth fixing but that is the extreme case. Thank you for your question, Bill
