The Peloton Row is quiet, but it is not completely silent. During your daily workouts, you may hear certain noises that should not be a cause for concern. Below are some of the normal operating noises you may experience while using your Row.
Note: While this is a guide to common noises, it’s not a diagnostic tool since it doesn’t include every noise you might hear during your Row workout. If you encounter a noise that does not sound like the noises below or a noise that prevents you from working out, contact our Member Support Team here.
Buzzing Noise during fast Recovery
When you are working out at high speeds, a buzzing noise may be heard during the recovery. This is something you might expect to hear because of how the drivetrain works.
Knocking Noise during slow Recovery
At low speeds and during slow recoveries, you might hear a subtle knocking noise. This is normal due to the way the drivetrain works.
Sometimes a ticking noise can be heard from the hub. This is a normal operational noise that can go away over time.
Sometimes a rattling noise may be heard from the hub. This is a normal operational noise due to the mechanism inside the Row hub.
During normal use, you may hear a squeaking noise as the Row seat slides along the rail. Regular cleaning of the rail and seat wheels with a damp cloth can help minimize this noise. For step-by-step cleaning instructions, click here.
During the recovery, you may sometimes hear a clicking noise. This is an expected noise that comes from the normal operation of the retracting mechanism inside the hub.
