Customer Question
Clunking noise when I...

Clunking noise when I use it. Sometimes it is ok but starts after 5 min of use

Technician's Assistant: When did you first hear this sound?

About the 3rd use. I bought it used from a person that only used it 25 times.

Technician's Assistant: When was the equipment last serviced?

Probably never. They stopped using it because it was not good on his hip replacement. I have only had it for three weeks
