Causes of rower noise include the surface on which the rower is placed and using the rower incorrectly. Mechanical causes include worn bearings and belts or loose belts and other parts. Some rower noise during operation is normal; the friction of the parts rubbing together creates some amount of noise.
To prevent rower noise from improper use, place the rower on a lightly carpeted surface or place a mat underneath it. Before each use, check for loose parts and tighten as needed. To address mechanical noise causes, inspect and replace bearings and belts, if necessary. Click here to learn more about different types of rower noise.
