SOURCE: NEED NEW WHEELS

The place where we bought our MacLaren (Planet Kids, NYC) recommended Pledge furniture polish to cure squeaky wheels. They said WD-40 and similar products collect too much dust. Its worked great for us. We carry a can in the car so we can reapply when necessary.

RESISTANCE PROBLEM WITH FREEMOTION 350R


9 out of 10 times the issue is a worn out clutch bearing or "one way needle bearing". Freemotion and Nordic Track are both owned by ICON Fitness. This technology for fitness equipment comes from the original Nordic Track skier. In the skier, there is a flywheel with an axle through it in the middle with skis left and right. Under each ski just about center of the length is a rubber roller that fits over the flywheel axle. Inside this roller is a "one way needle bearing". That is, when you push to the rear with the ski, the bearings rollers will shift and lock against the axle and engage the flywheel. When you pull the ski back forward the rollers inside the bearing release the axle and allow free movent forward untill you again push to the rear. Many poor souls were sold new skis and tension straps in most cases to no avail. What needed to be replaced or rebuilt were the rubber rollers under the center of each ski with the "one way needle bearing clutch" inside. The same technology is used inside this exercise bike except that the "one way needle bearing" is pressed directly into the flywheel itself. So rather that replacing or rebuilding the "roller clutches", you need to replace or rebuild the "flywheel". The price for the flywheel from ICON is $600 plus. Thats right $100 more than you probably paid for the bike. There used to be businesses that rebuilt the roller clutches for the skiers. There is no rebuild service available for the flywheel on this bike. So if you don't buy the maintenance contract witch will cost you as much as the bike for 4 or 5 years you have a very heavy piece of junk to dispose of. This is planned obsolescence at it's best. If you are very handy. You can disassemble the bike and find a commercial machine shop that can replace the bearing for you. It is sandwiched between roller bearings on each end. You will need a press designed to remove and replace bearings for commercial machinery like conveyor belts and assembly line equipment and someone to order and replace the same or an equivalent bearing. This actually should be a relatively affordable service. At least in comparison the only other option.

Fisher & Paykel GW712 washing machine Hi Fixya ,


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you

Level
If it is shaking and not sitting flat ( should have no rock corner to corner) check the leveling legs. Make sure to tighten up the locknut after adjusting.

Timer
Sometimes a Timer will start making noises before they fail. I would highly suggest replacing the timer as soon as the noise develops. This can cause problems with your motor and other components if left alone. This is easy to identify just listen up near the console when running.

Transmission
The transmission does not usually fail but to check this on a direct drive remove the motor and rotate the inner tub and listen for noises it should be quiet. If not the transmission is expensive and you will need to evaluate wether it is worth repairing.

Motor Coupler
On direct drive machines this is a common failure and can be very noisy.

Motor
You will need to disassemble the motor to listen to the motor running. If the motor is noisy it will need replacing. On direct drive models check the motor coupler first.

Suspension Rods
The Suspension Rods support the tub under the cabinet on some models. The washer must be disassembled to access. These usually do not fail. On direct drive types there will be springs instead of suspension rods. Either usually fails but can from being overloaded.

Drain Pump
The drain pump can be the cause of noise. On belt drive types remove the belt and rotate the pump pulley it should spin freely and make no noise. If it is noisy replace. If it does not spin freely remove and inspect for obstructions if none found replace the pump. Check the impeller on the pump it should be tight and spin freely. On direct drive types remove the pump and inspect it
