The LED on my new trainer is dead and the trainer doesn't work or make any noise

Important Note

This issue is confined to a very small number of early-serial number Control and R1 trainers. This issue is not associated with Smart Control trainers or inRide sensors. 


The Problem

If the following symptoms are all present with your new Control or R1 trainer:

  1. LED light on trainer resistance unit is dead.
  2. LED light on power strip is working.
  3. There is no sound coming from the trainer when plugged in (electronic trainers home the stepper motor each time they are plugged in, you'll hear a short period of motor sound).
  4. The trainer may have never worked or may have worked briefly.


The Solution 

If you're experiencing this set of issues, please do the following:

  1. Fill out a warranty claim HERE.
  2. Include the trainer serial number and any purchase receipts or information you can provide to help us quickly get to the root of the issue.
  3. Describe what is happening.

We will send you a PCB replacement kit with instructions for swapping the board. Performing this repair will NOT void your warranty on the trainer if we send you the kit. The kit contains a board, instructions and torx wrenches for removing the trainer housing and replacing the board (below).
