Customer Question
Belt came off generator...

Belt came off generator pulley. Aligned axle and tightened allen screws. Everything straight all nuts and elbows aligned but now i have a knock when using the machine. When i push on opposite sides of sprocket in opposite directions i feel a tiny bit of slack that must be the source of the knock. How do i eliminate this slack. Never had this knock before the belt came off.

Technician's Assistant: What's the brand/model of your equipment?

Lifefitness

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

Just happen d. Tried tightening main elbow that has nylon washers. Thought they may not be fitting together allowing slack.

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

Just the knock issue.

I'll wait for the phone call from someone who is familiar with this specific product and problem. I don't want to go through the "is it bigger than a bread box" line of questioning.
