How to Get Your Treadmill or Elliptical Repaired...

 
 
   
 

First is your fitness/exercise equipment
under warranty?

 

The first step is to determine whether your equipment is covered
by a warranty. If you bought your machine new, you should have received a manufacturer's warranty that covers parts and labor
for a specified period. If you are still within the warranty period, contact the manufacturer. They will typically arrange for parts
to be replaced, pay for a replacement machine, or send a local, independent repair person to your home. If your warranty has expired, they may refer you to a local repair person who you can pay directly.

Research your documentation - contact the manufacture - they will arrange for a certified technician to diagnosis the problem and make the necessary repairs.

There is a very good chance that in Western Pennsylvania,
Eastern Ohio and West Virginia, the manufacturer will give us a chance to meet.  I am the warranty certified technician for many
of the most popular commercial fitness equipment manufactures.
The work order will come to 
H.P. Service  to set an appointment with you to solve your fitness equipment issues.
I'll be Happy to met you.

 


Is Your
WORKOUT
Fitness Equipment
NOT
WORKING
OUT?

 

If you did not buy your machine new, you will not be covered a warranty. You could contact the manufacturer for a referral to a local repair person. However, some manufacturers are not particularly helpful with this. You could also try to make the repair yourself. Though this is often possible, especially if the problem is mechanical, most people don't want to bother. If the problem is electronic, such as a console that does not function properly, the solution is usually as simple as replacing the malfunctioning component. These parts are usually available for purchase on the Internet, but you typically can't be certain that replacing the malfunctioning part will solve your problem.

There are sources for free and inexpensive advice on the Internet, but this can be time-consuming and inefficient. If you are a fitness center, a home gym owner, or just a one fitness device owner
 
H.P. Service can make that workout back to normal.
We have the experience, we can diagnosis the problem, we know where to get the correct parts, we know how to get fitness equipment working so you can workout.
 

 
 
 

Having TREADMILLS/ELLIPTICALS AND BIKES PROBLEMS?

 
 
 
 
TREADMILLS ARE POWERED BY TWO TYPES OF MOTORS, DC AND AC. BOTH STYLES OF MOTORS HAVE DIFFERENT FAILURES. DC MOTORS HAVE BRUSHES IN THEM WHICH NEED TO BE OF PROPER LENGTH FOR THE MOTOR TO WORK PROPERLY.

IF THE BRUSHES ARE WORN, THE MOTOR WILL NOT TURN OR IT WILL SURGE AND GIVE THE USER A SENSE OF SPEEDING UP OR SLOWING DOWN. WHEN THE BRUSHES ARE NOT CHECKED AND MAINTAINED, THIS COULD ALSO CAUSE ELECTRICAL PROBLEMS IN THE LOWER CONTROL BOARD. MOST MOTOR BRUSHES GIVE MANY YEARS OF SERVICE AND NEED NOT TO BE MAINTAINED FOR SEVERAL YEARS.
 H.P. Service USUALLY CAN TELL IF IT IS THE MOTOR BRUSHES BY THE SYMPTOMS MENTIONED ABOVE. MOST TIMES BRUSHES ARE AN INEXPENSIVE REPAIR,  IF NO OTHER DAMAGE HAS BEEN DONE. AC MOTORS DO NOT HAVE BRUSHES, SO WHEN PROBLEMS ARISE, THEY ARE MORE INVOLVED THAN DC MOTORS. IN MOST CASES AC MOTOR REPAIR DOES NOT MAKE SENSE OVER PURCHASING NEW, FOR THE PRICE IN MOST CASES IS THE SAME.

IN BOTH CASES, AC AND DC MOTORS, THEY BOTH HAVE BEARINGS IN THEM THAT OCCASIONALLY FAIL.  AT
H.P. Service WE CAN REBUILD THAT MOTOR AND HAVE IT RUNNING FINE FOR FAR LESS THAN NEW. MOTORS ARE A TRICKY COMPONENT OF THE TREADMILL TO DIAGNOSE THE PROBLEM , UNTIL WE CAN TAKE IT APART AND VISUALLY SEE WHAT THE PROBLEM IS.

BRAKE ASSEMBLIES ARE FOUND IN ALL ELLIPTICALS AND BIKES. THIS IS THE COMPONENT THAT GIVES YOU YOUR POWER AND RESISTANCE TO THE USER. BRAKE FAILURE COULD BE AS SIMPLE AS NEW BEARINGS OR IN THE ELECTRICAL WORK ITSELF.

MOST BRAKE ASSEMBLIES SEEM TO BE WITH BEARING PROBLEMS MORE SO THAN ELECTRICALLY. THESE ARE REBUILDABLE. MOST SYMPTOMS INVOLVE SLIPPAGE OR NOISE OUT OF THESE ASSEMBLIES.
H.P. Service  HAS EXPERIENCE WITH MANY BRANDS OF BRAKES AND ARE VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE ON THE SERVICE AND REPAIR.

ANOTHER MAJOR PROBLEM IN FITNESS EQUIPMENT IS THE ELEVATION MOTORS. THEY ARE FOUND ON MOST TREADMILLS AND SOME ELIPTICALS.  THEY VARY IN SMALL SIZE IN ELIPTICALS TO LARGER SIZE IN THE TREADMILLS.  VOLTAGE VARIES FROM 12 VOLT DC TO 200 VOLT AC, DEPENDING ON YOUR MODEL. MOST PROBLEMS IN ANY OF THESE MODELS ARE REPAIRABLE BEING MUCH CHEAPER THAN BUYING NEW.
