Customer Question
Norditrack ACT Pro is...

Norditrack ACT Pro is very difficult to pedal on 1. It seems to adjust but becomes almost impossible at 10. Any ideas?

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your NordicTrack? What have you tried so far?

Ever since I had it. Maybe 6 years.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Equipment Expert to know before I connect you?

I am an engineer and can fix a lot of things
