I am the original, private owner of a StairMaster 4000PT that I bought new in 1992. It has never failed and I have had it serviced once a year. Only two people use it. I decided to do the service on it my self this time. Your video made the job easy, however, I think that it should be reshot in HD to make it a little easier to watch. My StairMaster runs better than ever. I will now service it 3 times a year. I could buy a newer model, but hey, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it".

This was a good overview of Stairmaster 4000PT maintenance.

It was careful not to impart too much information; just the essential elements.

It does conflict with the manual. The manual suggests using 30wt motor oil to lubricate chain, not tri-flo spray, but I don't see this as an error. The book also suggests removing chains via the masterlinks. This can be a tough job and one could easily destroy a masterlink; putting the unit out of order until a new part can be purchased.

The video could have been a little clearer or HD, but that is just being picky. After all, you did ask!

Good job!

Great! You have saved me much $$ Mark! I got the older 94 model of this stepper for a couple hundred and tonight I cleaned it up to your specs and it is now a happy addition to our home gym. It was actually pretty good inside. It works flawless, but after cleaning it up per your instructions, it is even better. From what I can tell, it had never had any maintenance and the console clocked only 126 hours in use (!) but 19917 hours on!!! Is this possible... anyhow, thanks!
