My Fortius is now four years old, the (110 V) motorbrake not quite as old, as it was replaced after maybe a half year. The last few months it's become quite noisy, chirping, whining, etc. I thought it was maybe the tires, or something to do with my new TTS3 software, where I have not found any way to calibrate, unlike the Fortius software. But I finally noticed today that I can push sideways on the roller--the part that the tire rests on--and make this clicking noise. In other words, it's loose, and the little click I hear is greatly amplified when the Fortius is in use, like it becomes a steady whining noise.

I would say this has slowly become a problem in the last six months. So now I'm reading about some upgrade kit that came along a while ago. In any case, I'm wondering if I need a new motorbrake unit. How much is that going to cost? I doubt I'm a good enough mechanic to take the thing apart and repair it in any of the ways I've read about elsewhere on the forum, unless it's just a matter of a little grease.
Regarding calibration by the way, my Fortius software had an option for doing this, whereas I don't see any such setting in the TTS3 software. Does that mean calibration is done automatically? Maybe a dumb question, but what does calibration do anyway? Does it affect the resistance at all? There is a whole very long section on using an epoxy fix to reattach the metal sleeve to the roller.
I was fairly skeptical of the fix, but when I did it on my noisy unit it worked like a charm: This does not require disassembly and has nothing to do with lubrication or grease. The upgrade program for 110 volt units expired years ago.
The new 110 volt units no longer have the 26 mph speed limitation and are much better, but you have to replace both the power supply (silver box) and motor unit as none of the old and new parts will work together. So, if you are happy, I would suggest trying the epoxy. It is a bit messy, so take it slow and easy. All Tacx software has a calibration program. It's purpose is to measure the amount of drag in the system so you get a more accurate measurement of the amount of power you are producing with your legs.
First of all, thank you for the response. I had looked at the epoxy fix section, and will look at it again. The 'slippage' I see is, as far as I can tell, side to side, which I gather is what this other forum is describing as 'loose'. So this steel sleeve is like a larger diameter cylinder over another smaller diameter cylinder, and has come loose from the smaller one, what, because the epoxy has slowly come unattached? I'm grasping for the correct description here, but I assume re-drilling these holes and putting in new epoxy would remove this side to side slippage, right?
