My NTL61009 NordicTrack T5 zi is making a fairly large noise

Customer Question

Hello my NTL61009 NordicTrack T5 zi is making a fairly large noise that seems to be coming from the circuit board. Also cuts off and on while I am using it. Can't tell for sure but the there is a component on the circuit board that is round, about 2 inches tall and roughly 1 inch in diameter that seems to be the source of the noise and vibration. There is so much vibration on the circuit board that what ever component i touch seem to make noise go away ...... Until intake pressure away then it returns. Any suggestions ?

Is this on the control board in the base? If so, it could be a capacitor. Here is a picture of the motor control board. Let me know if this is where the sound is coming from:

If that is the part, it's a pretty common problem. Here is the replacement board:
