Fitness Gear 821E Elliptical Trainer

I had the Fitness Gear 821E elliptical for 91 days (that's one day after the 90 day parts & labor warranty had expired!) when the first piece on it broke.

I called the company and they said they had the piece in stock, but still took them 3 weeks to send it out. A month later, I replaced the piece and within four days the flywheel broke.

Called the company and they said they had the part and would send it out. Problem is that I didn't have any tool that would fix it. The elliptical is broke for good and they couldn't understand that.

So now I am stuck with a broken Fitness Gear 821E that I was only able to use for a little over two months.

We have had the Fitness Gear 821E Elliptical Trainer for many years and have not had any problems. The only thing that has happened was that we tripped over the cord ( our fault )and broke the plug mounted in the front of the machine. The wiring harness in available for $49 at Treadmill doctor. I think I can just solder the wires together and by pass the broken plug. But it has been a good machine.
