Keep a log of all maintenance actions to assist in staying current with all preventive maintenance activities. JLL® is not responsible for performing regular inspection or maintenance.
Read all instructions and warnings listed both in this chapter and in the Safety chapter. Contact JLL® Customer Service on +44 (0)800 6123 988 for any maintenance or service concerns.
- Dry cloth
- Only use water to clean and dust. Do not use any cleaning product because they may damage the rower.
- Be careful not to spill or get excessive moisture between the edge of the display panel, as this might create an electrical hazard or cause failure of the electronics.
- Direct spraying could cause damage to the electronics and may void the warranty.
Depending on where the rowing machine is placed, you may experience dry air, causing a common experience of static electricity. You can notice that by walking across a carpet and then touching a metal object. On your rower you may experience a shock due to the build-up of static electricity on your body and the discharge path of the rower. If you experience this type of situation, you may want to increase the humidity to a comfortable level through the use of a humidifier. Check your machine regularly for rust. If rust starts to appear on the screws it means the item is not housed in the correct environment and will need to be moved to a more suitable room. Any rust will indicate there may be moisture in the air and as a result this could impact on the integrity and performance of your machine.
- Use only JLL® replacement parts.
- Keep water and liquids away from electrical parts.
- If you allow your machine to become rusty, this will affect your warranty.
With your new machine you’ll also receive a bottle of water purification tablets. Each time you refill the tank one of these must be added. Use the syphon pump provided to empty and refill the tank. It is recommended to refill your tank with clean water every 6 month’s or when the water has gone cloudy. *Please wash your hands after handling the tablets and do not place them near your eyes or mouth.
Keep the slideway free of dust and debris for smooth running and preventing injuries. Debris may cause damage to the rollers underneath the saddle.
After every workout use a neat, dry cloth for cleaning the machine and the handlebars to prevent the unit of corrosion. Wipe away any sweat that may have dripped. Avoid scratching the display by using a soft cloth.
Do not use abrasive or chemical cleaning agents.
3 EASY STEPS TO CLEAN YOUR ROWING MACHINE
Recommendation (these are just a guideline):
- Use a clean cloth to wipe down the whole machine.
- Vacuum or sweep the floor underneath and around the rower to prevent any dust going into the machine. A treadmill mat can help to reduce dust.
- Use a vacuum cleaner or a soft damp cloth to clean machines entire cover area.
When not using product for an extended period of time the product should be folded and stored in a suitable environment.
