extend the line to its max required length while you are sitting on the machine { as using } then get someone else to adjust the slack on the line and make it taught , the adjustment should be a bolt and nut type located on the main wheel . do not adjust the line from the seat as this may dislodge the seat . happy rowing

SOURCE: how do i repair the hydraulic unit it leaking oil on my 2010 bh rowing machine

Hello Garth,
Posting a question about washing machines alongside a picture of a washing machine isn't helpful when it is a rowing machine you want advice about. I am smiling...

The exercise machines that use a hydraulic unit I have seen use units that are cosmetically superior vehicle shock absorbers or dampers with a cylindrical container for the oil and valve mechanisms and a piston rod.

A long time ago it was possible to overhaul these telescopic dampers but for many years they have been considered a sealed-for-life throw away item, though the unit manufacturer might have the facilities to cut them open, replace the seals and valves and then weld them together again, it is doubtful.

The manufacturer of the hydraulic unit will not be the manufacturer of your rowing machine. A replacement unit will be a great deal cheaper from the former and there is generally a name and a part number somewhere on the hydraulic unit though it is often obscured by paint.

Dampers and suchlike tend to be standard items and replacements can often be found in the catalogues of the various manufacturers by matching the dimensions exactly.

I hope this helps if only a little.

I don't what type of rower you have, but for the most part you will have to pull the unit one layer at a time ( suggest you take picture of the process) and one point a return mechanism should be visible that may have detached or broken. After identifying then contact the manufacturer sometimes they may even e-mail the procedure of replacing the defective component or components.

I have a Weider Platinum crossbow and the resistance isn't setting properly if at all. Is there a simple solution that I can do to fix this?

This is a common problem with this machine, the wiring inside the back. Mine was broken too, it was just a loose wire, but the stupid wire is so inside a protective case, you have to take the whole machine apart to be able to reach it.

You'll need a technician to come to your home. Call Icon to get a reference.

The legs are firmly workout as well although not as much as the upper body but you will be able to notice the difference when you work out consistently. One of the better benefits of a rowing machine is that of calories burning but few use it mainly for that purpose as other fitness equipments such as the Nordic Track, stationery bike and treadmills can do so effectively.

The touch lift drip tray is broken its the plastic shaft that holds it together so its unusable.. I think someone lifted the machine by the lift tray or the shipper put the box upside down and it broke.......

The entire machine need to be taken apart to repair the auto drip tray. I would reccommend a Authorized Service Center to replace the tray. It is again not a simple fix.
