Slider Service & Support
Oartec suggests the following maintenance procedures be conducted to keep the machine working in optimal condition.
Wipe the Slider frame and flywheel assembly with a soft cloth and light detergent spray after use. Pay particular attention to keeping the rails clean to avoid build up of dirt and sweat on the seat rails.
Periodically oil the chain using 20w Motor Oil or 20w 3-in-1 oil.
Regularly inspect the condition of the chain for any stiff links and if oiling the chain does not loosen the link, the chain should be replaced.
Periodically inspect the oar handle U Bolt and chain swivel connection for wear. If there is significant wear of the U Bolt or the hole in the connector swivel is elongated contact Oartec for a replacement chain and swivel assembly or U Bolt.
Periodically examine the drive system inside the front assembly for any wear on the sprockets and idlers. This check can be performed with a visual examination from opening the front cover of the machine. Replace parts if worn or damaged.
Periodically open the flywheel housing and clean the flywheel and housing mesh of dust using a vacuum cleaner bristle head or soft cloth.
