Hi , I am Tech Michael an expert in this field and I will be assisting you today. I am a Master Technician that's dedicated to giving you the best Answer possible.

If you are new to the site, this is briefly how it works:

1. We may need some back and forth to exchange information (if needed) and there is no extra cost for replying.

2. I will give you the best possible Answer for your problem without the ability of actually being present with you.

The better you describe the problem, the quicker I can help ;-)

3. Remember to leave a Positive Rating ,it doesn't cost anything additional to rate kindly;-)

I am only credited for my time and expertise if you rate kindly.

This one will require some professional adjustments at this time.

The best place to call for that would be Sears in home service. They dont charge an estimate fee, and they will fix this one up correctly. Also they are fair priced and honest. I would recommend also they give it a basic tune up as that will keep your elliptical operating great for years to come;-)

Please call to schedule this service: 1-***-***-****

Also here is their website for that :

I wish this were a do it yourself project, I really do. But there is a lot to know on this one;-)
