When I go fast on my elliptical the resistance is starting

Customer Question

When I go fast on my elliptical the resistance is starting to slip.
(I'm going 10 mph and all of a sudden it is reading 25 mph, back to 10, back to 35.... - sometimes I notice that the resistance is significantly changed (not on the screen)
I unplug the elliptical and wait and then it works fine for a 30 minute work out)

Sounds like you need to replace your drive belt

You can try to tighten it but that will only be a temporary fix
