Squeak in concept 2 rowing machine bearing/fan

I get a squeak in what appears to come from the bearing when I pull on the rowing machine handle. There is no squeak while the chain is retracting. How do I get into the bearing shaft to oil/grease the bearing?

The chain on my concept 2 row machine seems to be rusting and may need to be replaced. Is there a way to repair this chain, or would I need to replace it? Is the gear that the chain wraps around accessable to lubricate?


Head off to a bike shop and ask for a "Dry Type Chain Lube"... don't worry about the rust!

My concept d3 rowing machine said i needed to replace my batteries (less than 15%) but when i did the PM3 has totally stopped working. i've tried new batteries in case the first set were duds


Follow the diagnostic steps below todetermine whether the problem is with the generator cable or the battery. Remove all batteries from the PM3. Ensure the "tach" (generator) cable is plugged in firmly and all the way. Row hard on your Model D or E Indoor Rower. If the PM3 comes on and stays on while rowing, then at least part of the generator is working. Proceed to step 4. If the PM3 does not come on, then generator cable needs to be replaced, and you can stop following this diagnostic procedure. Install fresh D-cell batteries in the PM3. The PM3 should power up. Set the language and date (the year, at minimum). On the PM3 Main Menu select More Options, then Utilities, then Product ID. Look at the Model type. Make sure it is set to D for a Model D Indoor Rower. If it says A, B, or C, contact Concept2. Press Menu'Back until you reach the Main Menu. Select Just Row. Start rowing: If the numbers begin counting, then the generator appears to be working. Proceed to step 10. If the numbers do not begin counting, stop this diagnostic procedure and replace the generator before proceeding. Stop rowing, press Menu'Back while the flywheel is still spinning, and wait for 30-60 seconds. If you receive a low battery message, replace the generator. Check your firmware version: On the PM3 Main Menu select MoreOptions, then Utilities, then Product ID. If your firmware version is less than101, then updating your firmware may extend the life of batteries, as newerfirmware uses the microprocessor more efficiently. Observe the performance monitor after rowing. The monitorshould turn off within six minutes of the time you stop rowing (except whenplugged into a computer, or during certain types of intervals). If it is notturning off within that time frame, please contact Concept2 for assistance. Check the battery level: On the PM3 Main Menu select MoreOptions, then Utilities, then Battery. Once the battery level gets down toabout 80%, the battery percentage should not go down by more than 1% per day.If it does, there is probably damage to the circuit board and the unit shouldbe replaced. In a health club, the most likely cause of this is spraying themonitor with cleaning chemicals. Hope this will help you. Good Luck.

Concept 2 rower screen says batteries are low even after I install new batteries.


Have you checked to make sure there is no corrosion or dirt on the battery terminals/contacts resulting in reduced voltage flow? If dirty try using a dollar bill(the fibrous paper used to make money is slightly course) to clean them as even a fine grit sand paper is too course for these contact points( you just want clean them, not scratch the finish off)
