Customer Question

I just bought a proform 60 used. It's sounds like the gears might need some grease. It makes a loud squeaking noise if I try to go fast.

Hi Carol,

You can try applying some grease yourself to the moving parts of the mechanism.

Let me know if you need the contact details for a repairer in your area...

How do I get to the moving parts?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
what kind of grease?
Expert:  Pete replied 1 year ago.

You will need to disassemble the outer covers to reach the internal parts of the machine.

You can use white lithium grease: http://www.amazon.com/Lucas-Oil-10533-Lithium-Grease/dp/B004X70LZA/

Can you send me directions on how to disassemble the outer covers please.
Expert:  Pete replied 1 year ago.

Hi Carol,

Here are some diagrams which show how the outer covers are held in place - you will need to remove all of the screws indicated:
