Stamina has modified the Owner’s Manuals for Magnetic 1772 Cross Trainer Elliptical, Air Resistance 1723 Cross Trainer, and Air 1725 Elliptical Cross Trainer. The modified Owner’s Manuals further emphasize the warnings and assembly instructions for securely tightening the pedal shafts to the cranks. If not securely tightened, the pedal shafts may become loose from the cranks, which may result in serious injury to the user and damage to the product.
