Customer Question
Nordictrack 9.0 Z brand new...never...
Nordictrack 9.0 Z brand new...never used.
Assembled three days ago.
When I plugged in there is a humming noise and constant clicking noise coming from flywheel area.
Called customer service they claim it is wiring harness front control panel to resistance motor.
Problem is that part is not in stick and no expected availability date.
I can make the noise go away if I turn resistance all the way up...but it returns as soon as it is lowered again.
Any ideas???

Check the wiring harness for any signs of damage - if there is a loose or broken wire you may be able to repair it yourself.
