NuStep® T4 Preventive Maintenance
Most mechanical products "break-in" after which bearings roll more freely, bushings rotate better, belts stretch, and parts loosen up a little. This is normal. Your NuStep® T4 Recumbent Cross Trainer is designed to accommodate this "break-in" with no adjustment on your part. The resulting effect is that there is a little less friction and the unit may feel a little easier, but this is normal and needs no calibration.
Preventive Maintenance Intervals
Your NuStep® T4 Recumbent Cross Trainer is designed to be maintenance free. We recommend just a few items that will increase the useful life of the NuStep. Please follow the recommended Preventive Maintenance intervals (in months) according to the amount of usage that the NuStep receives (hours per week). These are estimated intervals and you may need to increase or decrease the time period between Preventive Maintenance depending on your actual use.
