Inspect the ramp that the wheels travel on. If its pocked up or worn then it will cause the unit to feel like its grinding when in use.

    The grey cover in the middle of the ramp pops out. Take it off and look athe channels on both sides.

Pro form 6.0 elliptical belt keeps running to side of pulleys and making a grinding noise. This creates more tension. How can I track the belt?

There is an adjustment under the machine for the rollers, use that to align the belt to run correctly.

2006 BMW R1200GS - whilst riding no noise but when I close the throttle it makes a grinding sound. It goes away when I pull in the clutch. It is a tyoe of revolving grinding noise.

May be broken snap ring which keeps gears in proper position, but since you posted this in the wrong category, don't expect many answers.

Elliptical makes grinding noise every time right foot goes down

It can be a couple of things 1) the stair arm wheel has bad bearings. You can switch the right and left wheels to see if the problem follows the wheels. 2) make sure the ramp the wheels ride on is clean and it helps to use a clear silicone gel applied lightly on the ramps. 3) if the noise is from inside the front it is likely bearing related but can also be a belt with wear. What type of nose? Is it cyclic? Does speed and resistance change the sound? Does it get louder of quieter as the workout progresses?

Why is the Precor AMT 100i Adaptive Motion Trainer Elliptical primary belt making noise and should I adjust it?

SOmetimes belts make noise when they are worn out and need to be replaced - belts like that are considered 'wear' items, like tires on a car - they have a very limited lifespan compared to the other parts.

Hi Liz,
The only way to assess is to take the covers off. There are a few reasons for this type of problem.

Precor Elliptical EFX 5.23. Getting grinding noise on both forward and backward strides. It appears the aluminum eddy current disk is rubbing intermittently on the electromagnet. All the bolts seem tight...

There may be a wave washer on the crankshaft that broke - when it breaks, there is too much left to right play in the shaft, so the disk will intermittently rub. Taking it all apart and replacing the washer is tricky - hire a pro.

There is a loud noise coming from the rear spin wheel area of the elliptical 576i. I cleaned the entire thing and lubed all moving parts and it still grinding. Could this be a bearing issue?

It could be a bearing or the belts - if it sounds like a jet, look at the generator. I do not believe there is anything that can be lubed. Usually it just makes a mess.
