Is Old Fitness Equipment Worth Fixing?
Models improve over the years and the corresponding parts change slightly as well. This makes finding parts for the original older model more challenging.
Old Parts Are Hard to Come by
We not only try the original manufacturer but also numerous aftermarket suppliers. After approximately seven years, most manufacturers stop producing parts for a model. We have heard from some customers that they found a replacement part on eBay. We do not purchase parts from eBay because we don’t know about the quality of the part and it does not come with. a warranty.
The New Part May Point Out Another Problem
Sometimes we cannot tell what the actual problem is until the new part is put in. This can be frustrating to customers, but one part can affect another and the new part can sometimes draw attention to the real problem. This unfortunately can drive up the cost of the repair, so we encourage you to be aware of this potential and recognize that this is, unfortunately, beyond the technician’s control.
