This could just be a common wear issue. Over time, much like brake pads on a car, the brushes in the alternator wear down to the point that they only make efficient enough contact part of the time. The attached video shows where the brushes are located and how to change them. Stairmaster Alternator Brush Replacement Video

Tip

Mechanical System Troubleshooting for Stairmaster 4000PT Stepper


  1. Remove the side covers. WARNING: TO REDUCE THE RISK OF INJURY, DO NOT OPERATE THE MACHINE WHILE THE COVERS ARE REMOVED. DO NOT DEPRESS OR RAISE THE PEDALS WHILE ANYONE'S HANDS ARE INSIDE THE MACHINE.
  2. Remove the Poly-V belt and inspect the belt for cracks, fraying or any other unusual or excessive wear.
  3. Spin the alternator pulley to check the bearings. Replace the alternator if any clicking or grinding noises are heard.
  4. Inspect the alternator pulley for wear.
  5. Tighten the transmission pulley set screw to the flat side of the transmission output shaft.
  6. Remove the drive chain and inspect the chain for frozen links. Replace a chain with frozen links.
  7. Tighten the transmission drive sprocket set screw to the keyway in the transmission input shaft.
  8. Spin the transmission drive sprocket input 1 complete revolution. The transmission pulley output should turn 19 revolutions. Replace the transmission if any clicking or grinding noises are heard during rotation or the drive ratio is not 19 to 1.
  9. Remove the step chains and return springs from the main frame of the machine.
  10. Inspect the step chains for frozen links and the springs for corrosion. Replace a chain with frozen links and replace a corroded spring.
  11. Make sure that the step chain connection points pivot freely and have no vertical play.
  12. Remove the pedals, pedal arms, and leveling arms and lubricate according to the maintenance section of the manual.
  13. Verify that the clutch sprockets of the hub assembly spin freely in the forward direction and lock in the reverse direction.
  14. Inspect the hub assembly for wear. The drive shaft sprocket should not move up and down or side to side.
  15. Clean and lubricate the drive and step chains with 30W motor oil.
  16. Reinstall all parts, ensuring the proper tension of the Poly-V belt and the drive chain.

My aqua drive 1100 auto reset pool pump runs warm and stops after a few seconds after i switch it on then goes on after a few minutes And this continues. Why


Thermal Overload Switch: Something is creating an overload on the pump. Once it is overworked, the motor will overheat. This will be sensed by the T.O. switch. Once the switch senses that the motor has cooled, it will start again.
Reasons for overload:
  • Bearings no longer spinning freely & without restriction
  • Foreign debris in the volute, jamming against the impeller
  • Failing T.O. switch
Good Luck

Why does one pedal drop on my Stairmaster Stepper but the other pedal operates correctly? Stairmaster Steppers, How to Troubleshoot when one Pedal Drops (Loses Resistance) while the Other Pedal Operates Correctly
  • If one pedal drops while the other operates correctly on your Stairmaster stepper, this problem commonly occurs when the drive sprocket on one side or the other becomes defective
  • Usually, when one drive sprocket fails, the other isn't too far behind
  • The best approach to resolve this problem is to install a new hub assembly

Sounds like the motor is not turning. Check your impeller and motor to see if it spins freely by hand.

If not then you either have something stuck in the pump or the bearings are bad. If it is freely spinning, check your start capacitor

This is probably something simple. I have an MTD


I am going to guess that there is a flat spot or hole that the machine screw (or set screw, I presume) should be either against or tighten into. When you tighten it against the round portion of the shaft it will allow the auger to slip and the screw to come loose. Check and see if that isn't the case.

Try taking it apart again and try to turn the motor by hand. It should spin freely. If it does you've probably got a bad motor. If it is stiff or doesn't turn at all, then you might have missed something putting it back together. I wouldn't think you can overtighten the blower, it is probably something else, and with it apart it should be easy to see.
