SOURCE: the resistance on my Precor elliptical 5.17 will

There is a small motor under the shroud that operates the resistance motor. It is about the size of a roll of half dollars. Have someone use a meter and check that you are getting power to this. When you turn on the machine the motor should move the resistance forward then back. You can hear this everytime you turn it on.

SOURCE: We have a REFLEX Step

Hi,

I had a similar problem recently with my elliptical - it was permanently stuck in the "hard" position. In my case, it has a wheel that turns when you step, and the tension is adjusted by a pair of magnets inside this wheel assembly. These magnets are positioned near the wheel - closer for more tension or further for less tension.

The console control electronics that send a signal down to this wheel assembly. There is a little motor that pulls on a short cable to position the magnet(s).

The problem was that the cable attached to one of the magnets snapped, leaving that magnet close to the wheel, i.e. high tension. We had to have a technician order and replace the entire wheel assembly as its individual pieces are not made to be serviceable.

It sounds like your case might be similar. Maybe you only have one magnet or two. In any case, I'd look at whether the magnet(s) are moving relative to the wheel when you adjust the tension settings (you should be able to see or hear the magnets move - you might need a buddy to help).

While you may not be able to repair it yourself (you can get yourself pinched badly around these gears and mechanical elements), you will at least know what's going on so you get the right work done if you choose to hire someone.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

SOURCE: why does the resistance on my elliptical randomly go to OFF while working out

Do this for your console Elliptical:Removethe bolts or screws securing the console to the upright assembly. Lift theconsole and confirm that the cable connections are secure. Remove the coverfrom the console's battery bay and install a fresh set of batteries. Replacethe battery cover.2
Detachthe ends of the pedals from the crank axles. Remove the left and right discshields and side shields. Inspect the interior of the base unit and locate theflywheel.3
Inspectthe flywheel as it turns. Locate the magnet installed on the flywheel. Turn theflywheel until the magnet passes in front of the nearby reed switch. Loosen thescrew securing the switch in place. Rotate the switch to reduce the gap betweenit and the magnet. Tighten the screw.4
Replace the left and right disc shields and sideshields. Reattach the ends of the pedals to the crank axles

Good luck, sincerely. G-d bless you.

My digital screen on my 420 elliptical schwinn blinks on and off


replace batteries and proceed with 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.


  • 2 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.

    Elliptical resistance


    Be aware that the resistance is often the part that requires repair. Resistance is managed magnetically, so often if the machine is working, but the resistance isn't setting correctly or at all, check the bolts that secure the magnets. If they are loose, the resistance will slip. If the bolts are fine, check the magnets themselves by using a refrigerator magnet and see if it is attracted or repelled by the your fridge magnet. If not, the magnets have de-magnetized and need to be replaced.

    Adjust the magnet with bolt attached there are loose, tight very well and ready the resistance is the main parts that need repair,
    However if the resistance is faulty, you must test again the magnet from the refrigerator by attracting or repeled, if do not pass this test replace it buying small cheaping from home depot or similar.

  • 1 Check your owner's manual for diagrams and definitions. You'll need this information when you put the elliptical back together. You'll also want definitions in case you need to call the customer support line for assistance.

  • 3 Consider that if the foot pedals are attached with bolts, any slipping can be fixed with a quick use of the wrench. But if the foot pedals are damaged or breaking, order new foot pedals (see Resources below) rather than run the risk of a pedal breaking while you're on the machine.
  • 4 Check the hand bars. While not all people use them, as they can elevate your heart rate by up to 20 percent, they can become worn, too. While loose hand bars typically need a simple tightening of the bolt, be sure not to overtighten as the bolts can break.
  • 5 Know that if the axis is bent, it's likely you need a new machine. The axis is the central alignment of the elliptical. If the machine was used by a person who is over the maximum weight limit, it can be bent or damaged. It's not an easy fix and a better idea is to upgrade to a sturdier machine.

    How do I fix my crosstrainer, magnetic resistance has stopped working


    This happened to me and I took the wheel mechanism cover off to discover the tension motor cable had come out of it's pulley guide- so there wasn't enough tension left in the cable to pull it away from the wheel- quite an easy fix for me- hope it is the snake for you!
