Cycleops fluid trainer squealing

I have a new Cycleops fluid 2 trainer and I have only used it for about 2 hours so far. The problem is I am getting a very noisy squawking and squealing noise coming from it from time to time. It seems to be a certain spot on the bearing as it makes a noise once every revolution on the resistance unit. The noise comes and goes without pattern. Sometimes I speed up and it goes away, sometimes I slow down and it goes away.

Does anyone have any experience with these trainers? Is this normal breaking in or do I have a bad unit?
