Regular maintenance of the elliptical is necessary to ensure long life and proper operation. Keep the unit clean by vacuuming around moving parts and wiping with a clean cotton cloth. Regularly check for loose connections and retighten them. Regular lubrication of the moving parts of the elliptical will help prevent squeaking.
