I got an elliptical from eBuyer 3 months ago, I have been happily using it most days all this time and never had a problem with it. Last night though as I started to use it it started to make this grinding noise by the flywheel, after a few minutes I hopped off to see if I could see what was going on, I couldn't see any thing obvious (since it's inside a plastic case and totally unaccessible) so I hopped back on and the darn thing just wouldn't move at all. Even on the lowest resistance level it's just solid now, won't shift.
It's a long shot I know but does any one have any ideas or suggestions as to what happened? Has the flywheel come lose? has the magnetic thingy broken? Any suggestions on an easy fix?
