My trainer makes this scraping sound whwnver I use it. The first one I got made the same sound, so I had it changed. This newer one though, is the same. Same scaping sound. Kind of like chuk chuk chuk chuk chuk.

Is this normal?

Oddly enough, I have the same problem too...

Mine has a red plastic and black mesh housing/cover guarding the belt and drum. On my unit, the noise seems to be coming from the belt (or something) hitting the housing. I can get it to stop if I gently give the housing a tug up and away from the belt BEFORE I hop on the bike. Don't do this while the unit is moving! Works ok.

Thanks, will try that. although mine has a clear brown plastic housing. I think the steel wheel inside is scratching against something.
