Question about Stairmaster 7000PT Nautilus Stepmill

1 Answer

I was recently called out to fix a 7000PT Stairmaster that was knocking. I isolated the knock to the transmission. I replaced and tested. Everything seemed fine. After a few days, the guy called back because lightweight females can not use the machine (there is too much resistance). I replaced the alternator and relay board and tested. Again, fine. Level 1 is slow and level 20 is running.. He called back the next day. Same thing. Lightweight females can't use it as it has too much resistance. I have tried to adjust tension on the drive chain, the poly v belt, as well as replace the alternator and relay board. The resistor ohms fine and it passes all tach tests and alternator tests. Any suggestions?? I'm lost..

This machine works off of gravity and requires a minimum of 120 lbs to function correctly. So without knowing what "lightweight females" is exactly, I am assuming they weigh less than 120 lbs.

The problem may lie in your wife's low weight - she just doesn't have enough weight to move the stairs at that resistance ( my wife weighs 100 lbs and can't get it to move at a high level). If she can hold some weights in her hands and have ankle weights on, she will be able to move the steps faster.
Hope this helps!!
