These always need adjusting when installed. These two start the wheel and control the high end speed. Take the foot pedal bottom plate off and with wheel turned on adjust these two plastic knobs. This will cure your issues.Now since this is a new thing for you it may take a few go roounds to get the relationship betwwen the two adjustments as they effect one another.Set the start knob 1st(low end speed) then set the high speed knob. Then the low speed may need to be changed-once this relationship is set right-you can forget about it for decades.
It certainly could be right that I have the relationship wrong between high and low. I dialed the high setting down to a manageable speed and tweaked the low adjuster to just less than dead stop, if that makes sense.
But still, when I depress the pedal, there's no response, no response, no response, and then zoom--it takes off. And trying just to get a sedate, slow speed is frustrating as hell. What could I be doing wrong?
I am kicking myself for not having gone with a kick wheel, no pun intended. But now I'm stuck with this and really need it to work. Any suggestions much appreciated.
