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