nelson sharp- My unit is JunkAug 12, 2019

My unit failed after a few hrs of use. Sole sent a service rep and fixed it. About a Yr later ( 3 months of actual use at a second home) It failed again with the same failure( inability to adjust level) but now out of full warranty. To their credit, Sole service was very helpful in trying to diagnose and sending me parts(still under parts warranty). To date I have spent 40 hrs replacing parts ( Unit was not designed with Serviceability in mind) and still do not have a unit that works- Now in the process of disassembling and taking to the JUNK pile.

Terri- Serial number???Dec 16, 2020

Can’t find the serial number, and no warranty card. The pedals are not adjustable. There’s a dial but you can’t see the pedal move. The Manuel doesn’t describe how to adjust pedals.

Marco- Do not buy SoleMar 13, 2021

My unit stopped working after just one year. No support at all in Italy, so now it is just junk
