Ive noticed on the lowest weight, cables on my overhead pull-down do not return freely. In fact I can let go of the bar and it just sits there.
I can't find one pulley that is especially stiffer than the others, but none of them spin freely. e.g. I can turn them easily but if if I try to spin it, it stops immediately.
How smoothly should these pulleys turn? My machine is virtually new and I don't want to put something in only to find it's too free; for all I know the pulleys should be damped?
