Question about Tunturi E4R Exercise Bike Recumbent

1 Answer

Purchased the Tunturi recombent bike E80R in April 2010. When I used it - it was basically a quiet machine. A few weeks ago it started making a noise when I peddled that sounds like its coming from the wheel. The sound is fairly soft and sounds like something may be rubbing against something. It doesn't start until a couple of minutes after you begin to peddle. Any ideas as to what this could be and what I can do about it???

Could be that the belt is sliding against the wall of the wheel (against the ridge/lip). This is because your wheel is probably not level. This is usualy caused by wear, or because the wheel was moved or adjusted on purpose and not levelled or aligned correctly.

A 1: If your wheel is not level, the belt going around the wheel will inevitably migrate towards the edge of the wheel stand in front of the machine and look straight down at the wheel while it is motion (spinning), you should be able to see if it (the belt) is moving.

If, however your wheel is bent, this could cause the same problem. However, this is no quick fix. It will generally mean replacing the wheel

A 2: In order to recognize if your wheel is bent, stand in front of the machine and look straight down at the wheel while it is in motion. You should be able to see a, "Wobbling" in the wheel, indicating its condition.

Got my brand new huffy a few weeks ago. everytime I shift gears, the chain comes off. we try to adjust the Derailleur, but the front one don't go all the way to the large sprocket. what do

If you purchased from a reputable bike dealer take it back. I have never heard of a dealer who does not offer a free checkup when the bike is a few weeks old because cables do stretch.

Lenovo Y430 LCD crack while i am playing online games. Is that possible? i brought the machine in April 2009 and do you think it is still under warranttee? where would i get help if this is an manufacture...

Hopefully you purchased with plastic? and or still have receipt proof of purchase.

Take back to point of sale for a replacement or money back, if plastic used you can claim back purchase price, you will need to make a claim direct the the plastic issue bank, dont leave it till after April 2010
