Customer Question

Hi. I have a Sole E95 that I bought used about a year ago. When I bought it I noticed that the maximum resistance setting didn't have enough resistance and it's the same today, has not changed. I did inspect the magnetic pads and wheel, they do adjust and get very close to the wheel. Do you have an idea what might be wrong? Did the wheel loose it's magnetism?
JA: What's the make/model of your device? How old is it?
Customer: Sole E95, not sure how old.
JA: How long has this been going on? What troubleshooting have you tried?
Customer: I have inspected the magnetic wheel and the adjustable pads near the wheel, those work, but the resistance does not seem to be enough, maybe about 50% of what it should be.
JA: Anything else you want the equipment expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: no

On this one you will need new pads to solve this problem.

Usually the wheel on these will be ok, the first thing to replace are the pads. They are the cheapest and probably the solution. I know this from many years hands of on experience.

The best place to get the parts you need is:

When you visit the site, they have a chat so you can get more advice there as well as the pads.

In any case, I will stick with you until this is complete.
