Open the cap and put in about 10 drops of light machine oil (or sewing machine oil). Also put a drop or two onto all the turning parts of the rear axle. If it is still pedaling hard put another 5 drops of oil in the cap. Also oil the joints of the pedal sprocket and the pedals with a drop or two at each location..

How do i get a squeak out of my bernina foot pedal?


1. The foot pedal has an end that is like a door hinge. Oil it.
2. Inside the pedal blow the dirt out.
3. There are moving parts that are metal against metal. Oil them.
DON'T: GET THE OIL ON ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS.
DO THIS WITH IT UNPLUGGED!

My precor efx 546 makes noise like a squeaking in left pedal it seems I tried to tighten pedal but I the whole bolt and screw turn together and the other pedal makes no noise


This squeak is normally caused by a bad bearing in the wheel. In order to provide you with the correct wheel, I will need your serial number. The following link will take you to our Precor EFX 546 page.

1998 Dodge Dakota, the brake light and ABS lights are on with brake pedal pushed and the rear wheels continue to spin.


check the rear wheel sensor wires and sensors . IT appears that the ABS is receiving ( or not receiving a signal telling the unit that the wheels spinning) a bad signal saying that the wheels are stopped and so the fluid to the wheels is restricted to allow them to spin. Check the fluid level in the reservoir as there may be no oil in the section of the master cylinder for the rear wheels and that half is not working

When i drive over 50k(australia) my front drivers wheel sqeaks and it does it too occasionally when i break. been happening for over 2 months so i rule out that its dirt in the breaks. what could it be...


wow first post ever for country, im GOBSMACKED !!!!
wheel ?steering wheel or tire/wheel.?

hard to find, they are, all squeaks.
first is to see if possible to do, no moving (big safety issue, yes)
bounce the corners of car hard, by hand.?
jack car up spin tires. by hand,
lever them below off ground, to see of balls are shot.
inspections here, look at every inch of suspenson and parts.

Brakes, i hope nothing breaks the brakes.
The brakes all squeak this is normal try lightly pressing the brake pedal, gently while moving slow, squeaking now is 100% normal and harmless. (the pads act like Guitar strings)
Use pad glue to halt it, or ignore it like me....
the pads have wear markers, they have this device that makes noise when pads get too thin, (look at em)
bad wheel bearings.
brake backing plate bent.
caliper guide pins rusted.
and lots of other things bad or just ok , old and making noise, like
suspension "A" arm bushing rusty, or stable bar , same.

moving noise is real hard to find.

Break pedal squeaking


is the squeak inside the car? if so, then yes it's probably the pedal or linkage. If it's outside the car, then either the brakes were done poorly or the pads are defective. Assuming you had the front and rear brakes done. Could be the other brakes if only 1 axle was serviced.

Left side its sqeak when i peddle


My Precor EFX 546 elliptical trainer began squeaking when my weight was on the pedals. I thoroughly cleaned the track and wheels with Windex and then used my finger to apply a thin coat of teflon based lubricant (Tri-Flow brand) to the outer surface of the wheels. After 2 applications of lubricant, the squeaking has been eliminated completely. Hope this helps!

I've got some roughness in the left pedal spindle. I noticed the left pedal squeaking yesterday. I put some lube on it after my ride which seems to have done the trick with the squeak. Pedals about 7...


bobby, if it was feeling rough or if it squeaked as well, but oil made it seem better (or not, does not matter), the pedal bearing is defective and should be replaced by the maker if the pedal is under warranty. I presume they'd replace the pair, though it is unlikely for both pedals to be bad, you'd want a cosmetic match, natch.

There are most likely some sort of bearings inside the wheel hub that are causing this.
