ProForm VR980 EKG (PFEX3311.0) Pedals/Crank Slipping

I have a ProForm VR980 EKG Exercise Bike (Model PFEX3311.0) and it is having a problem where it slips while pedaling. At first I thought it was the belt slipping but I took the bike apart and found that the crank shaft is actually slipping inside the hub. I suspect that it has something to do with the freewheel mechanism but this is where we reach the limits of my knowledge on crank mechanics. Is it possible that something just needs to be lubricated better so the freewheel mechanism "grabs" properly when pedaling or am I going to need to find parts to repair this?
