Customer Question
I have a Reebok...

I have a Reebok elliptical 1000 ZX and it seems like the resistance is stuck at a very high-level. Is there anyway to fix that?

Technician's Assistant: What Reebok model do you have?

1000 zx

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

It just started all the sudden. I’ve taken the left rear panel off but I don’t really know what I’m looking for.

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

No that’s it, thank you.

it’s still doing that. It’s super hard to pedal. Just happened all of the sudden. Nothing environmentally changed around it. It just has more clothes handing on the seat. Haha

I don’t mind trying to fix it myself if you have an idea what might be causing it.
