I have a Lifecycle 5500R which has started slipping. It is old, and I have used it a lot. Is it fixable, or would it be better to just get a new one?

Hi there, here is a website that seems to list many parts for this particular model, hopefully you can add up whether it is worth doing or not. What you need to think about is what actually may be needed, whether it is just a drive gear, the drive belt or a multitude of parts. If it costs too much to repair then you may want to think about putting your money towards a new one. I think in this caseyou may be lucky as it sounds like it is just the drive belt that may have worn and lost a few teeth.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

Why dose my 06dodge ram slip when going overdrive

Because you have a failed transmission,
if your lucky, just a solenoid problem

Since you have been using it with it slipping,
it is now ruined & next to no chance for any other

You have to change trans & power steering fluids on
all vehicles, every three years & drive like your afraid
they may fail or they will,their all designed with lots of
known flaws,all fixable,but only on a complete rebuild

Chain keeps comming off

It sounds like you are dealing with a stretched chain. If the chain will not tension any further, you may be looking at the need to purchase a new chain. Use your model and serial number at the following link to order a new chain.

Can a transmission just need fixing if it is slipping a little between 1 and 2nd gear

A little or a lot, if it slips it is done and must be overhauled.

Was sitting at a shuttle bus stop at the Grand Canyon and my D3100 slipped off my lap onto the ground. Picked it up and could still see the pics I had already taken - thought it was ok. Started taking...

Of course it's fixable. Only an inspection at a Nikon service facility can tell you the extent of damage and give you an estimate. (lesson learned...always use the neckstrap). In the meantime, you could remove the lens, fire off a few shots and see if the mirror is flipping up and whether the shutter is opening.

I have a bugaboo wlth the white colour brake and have just found out that the white colour ones are out of date. my question is does anybody know if i can get it changed over to the red one and how much...

Bugaboo don't sell parts as such but they sell the chassis. It will coat you around a third of the price of a new Bugaboo. The new Red brake lever chassis has the lever extension handle locks instead of the wing-nuts and rocker style buttons for the handle release. Your old frame will be quite sort after on eBay. I like the rocker handle release and the extension levers are quick to use and look better but I must warn you the old wing-nut system held the handle better and if you bump down a lot of stairs the new lever system is more prone to slipping, macnutz_16.jpg

I was told that my lifecycle 9500hr wasnt turning on because of the alternator. I replaced that and the display still wont turn on...any ideas of how to fix this????

You were probably steered wrong. I would expect the battery is the problem.

Use a voltmeter to check voltages.

If the battery is fully down, the alternator MAY have to have the field "flashed" to start generating.

In an automobile the current throu the alternator "idiot light" DOES THIS AUTOMATICALLY.but for your lifecycle I don't know how they do that unless the alternator uses permanent magnets.

Mower drive slips , not belt clutch, assembly. any adjustment? or anyway to fix it?

I hate to tell you this,but not much you can do. I had a toro wheel horse 12.5 hp the drive belt would slip,made it a little better by putting on new belt w/belt dressing,but would still do it especially under load or up hill,or starting in higher gear. Unfortanately,it was one of toros downfalls on a lot of models,and FYI if you think altering the tension pulley to hold the belt back more will solve it,your wrong,all that will do is make you lose use of your clutch.
