The rollers on my max trainer move slightly causing the whole machine to rock. The bolt through the middle moves back and forth. Is it supposed to move like that?

You think a rubber 'o' ring would wear out quick, I wonder if a metal washer would be a better alternative.

It was actually a very easy fix but took a little bit of searching to figure out what was causing it. It ended up being the rubber cover that goes over the retaining bolt that holds the pedal arm on the rotating shaft. If this rubber cover is pushed on too tight it causes the rubber to rub on the rotating metal cylinder which after a while will cause it to start squeaking. I simply pulled the rubber cap back a little to give a gap between the rubber cap and the metal cylinder. This simple fix stopped my squeak.
I know this might not be the cause of everyone's squeak but its worth a try and is very simple.


Same issue. When I move outside the pedal arm on the rotating shaft, the squeak disappears. I try your solution to pull out the rubber cap back a little. Thanks for sharing

@Sheila - No that is not normal. Mine started squeaking maybe a year after using it maybe 5 times a weak.,, not that I was expecting mine to start sqeaking.

Anyone else try the O-Ring suggested above by Tig? I think I might try that.

Started squeaking the third time I used it. Is this normal? Paid too much for it to squeak this soon.
