Is your rower beginning to sink?
Here are some of the key signs that indicate your Concept2 may be in need of a service or repair.
Monitor is off and won’t come on
Replace batteries. PM3/PM4 D Type. PM2 AA Type. Press reset button on back of PM3/PM4 monitor.
No strokes per minute displayed on monitor
Check that the lead from the flywheel to the console is not damaged, and is connected fully in the jack socket of the monitor.
Clean and vacuum flywheel outlet to remove any build-up of dust, as this will allow airflow.
Total lack of resistance
Clutch or chain sprocket may need replacing. Contact us.
Chain is skipping or running roughly
If caused by stiff links in the chain it should be cleaned and lubricated. If the chain continues to skip, the machine should not be rowed and you should contact us.
Seat bumpy when rolling
This is usually caused by dirt on seat rollers or monorail, or worn out seat rollers. Clean rollers and monorail with a damp cloth.
Seat wobbles from side to side on monorail
After extended use, the fit of the seat on the monorail may become loose due to wear on the rollers. Replace seat rollers if worn out.
Rower is unstable
Check all front and rear leg securing bolts are fully tightened, using an Allen key.
Upgrade your Concept2 monitor
Improve your workouts by changing the monitor on your indoor rower.
Upgrading the monitor on an older model to the all new PM5 indoor rower is simple.
Every Model E comes with the PM5, as standard, so if you’re not yet in the market for a new rowing machine, purchasing a new monitor can be a great progression for your current rower.
