Chain Problems

Symptom

The chain is skipping or running roughly.

Possible Resolutions

Resolution 1

If caused by stiff links in the chain you should clean and lubricate the chain.

If the chain continues to skip, after lubricating the chain, the machine should not be rowed and you should contact Concept2 immediately.

Resolution 2

If caused by a worn out sprocket, you should replace the sprocket. See:

Note: When replacing a chain or a sprocket, Concept2 highly recommends replacing both the chain and the sprocket at the same time due to how these parts wear together over time.
