You could try lubricating the moving parts. Sometimes the bearings and the connecting parts can become dry. If lubing does not work, it may simply be time to replace a bearing or bushing.

My Nordictrack E9.0 Elliptical machine has a loud squeek


I have found a possible source for your squeak. I have the same elliptical and had an annoying squeak in the front end of the machine. The squeak could be coming from the roller arm flex bracket and/or the pedal arm flex bracket. These brackets are secured to the front of the roller arms and the pedal arms with a single bolt. Tightening these bolts may help get rid of the squeak. If you don't have your manual, you can download the manual at the nordictrack website. The manual will have an exploded drawing of the elliptical. The roller arm bracket and the pedal arm bracket are numbered 135 and 136 and you will see which bolt I am talking about. I have had numerous issues with my elliptical but after changing some parts under warranty, it is working like new. Good luck.

My elliptical trainer is starting to squeak. What should I do?


Don't worry; this is a common problem in elliptical trainers. Over time, parts of the machine may start to squeak. I am going to attach a how-to guide that will explain what to do when this happens.

Proform XP110 R recumbent bike makes clanking noise.


I have the same problem with my XP 110. After taking the ENTIRE thing apart and independently testing every single moving mechanism, I found out that it wasn't the motor, pedals, armbars, or any internal mechanism. Instead, it was the front stabilizer foot that made the annoying noise. There is a plastic mechanism around the front stabilizer legs that holds the front wheels in place (for moving the elliptical). Whenever a rotation forward occurs, the plastic squeaks and the noise resonates to make it sound like the pedals or motor is squeaking. I am still trying to find a solution to fixing the feet, but may end up ordering a new set from the manufacturer. Good luck with your elliptical!

Squeaking


that's a mechanism issue inside..it's going to fail quite soon, so you may not have this problem for too much longer.
