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.
Do not assemble or use these elliptical machines until you have reviewed the entire modified Owner's Manual and, in particular, the warnings and assembly instructions for Step 6 (if you have Model 55-1772), Step 7 (if you have Model 55-1723), or Step 5 (if you have Model 55-1725).
You should immediately discard the original Owner's Manual that accompanied the Magnetic 1772 Cross Trainer Elliptical, Air Resistance 1723 Cross Trainer, or Air 1725 Elliptical Cross Trainer.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risks of serious injury or death from more than 15,000 types of consumer products under the agency's jurisdiction. Deaths, injuries and property damage from consumer product incidents cost the nation more than $700 billion annually. The CPSC is committed to protecting consumers and families from products that pose a fire, electrical, chemical, or mechanical hazard. The CPSC's work to ensure the safety of consumer products - such as toys, cribs, power tools, cigarette lighters, and household chemicals - contributed significantly to the 30 percent decline in the rate of deaths and injuries associated with consumer products over the past 30 years.
